What is Crisis Core materia fusion?

To answer this question, it’s important that you know what materia is, and if you’re a fan of any of the games set in the Final Fantasy VII universe, you’re likely very familiar with materia. Still, as a quick refresher, materia essentially gives you various perks and benefits, some aid with your health, others enable you to use different types of magic such as fire, lightning, blizzard, and more.

Essentially, Crisis Core materia fusion enables you to blend two pieces of materia together to make a new one. Many of the rarer materia pieces are only obtainable via this method, so it’s worth acquainting yourself with it.

The main options are all below, but be sure to try your own combinations to see what you can create. Also note, there’s no limit to how many of these items you can throw in, so don’t scrimp on the Zeo Nuts.

How does Crisis Core materia fusion work?

Before you can even think about materia fusion, you need to get your hands on a specific item, the fusion tome, from mission 7-2-1. Once you have this, you can begin to blend materia pieces together, but there are still some guidelines to follow.

For instance, if you combine a magic materia – fire, blizzard, or thunder – with a status materia, you’re guaranteed to get a ‘dark’ version of the magic materia you use, e.g., dark fire.

What are the benefits of Crisis Core materia fusion?

In a nutshell, Crisis Core materia fusion gives you the chance to add some impressive stat boosts. Depending on your playstyle preference, you might want higher attack, magic, or vitality stats, for instance, and if you use items as part of the fusion process, you can not increase certain attribute stats, but if you add an item to the equation, it can further improve your results.

Besides the potential stat increase, you can enjoy the benefits we mention above – rare materia and increased potency.

There you have it, the basics of Crisis Core materia fusion. It’s a handy mechanic that’s worth familiarising yourself with if you’re jumping into Crisis Core Reunion. If you’re after something new to play, our best Final Fantasy games list has some great suggestions.
