    About Summons in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth

    Summons can help turn the tide of battle against even the most formidable foes. There are a few ways to acquire Summon Materia, including having saved data from Final Fantasy VII Remake and its DLC or having preordered the Deluxe or Collector’s Edition of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

    Many summons are earned as you progress through the game’s campaign. Each region you discover has a particular deity, and by defeating them in the Combat Simulator, you earn their respective Summon Materia. To access the Combat Simulator, talk to Chadley.

    To use a particular summon, you must first equip their respective Materia on the character of your choice. Each summon grants stat bonuses to the equipped character, which we’ll list below.

    Summon Materia for Titan in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, which is a reddish-orange sphere.

    When in battle, a summon meter will appear after an enemy is staggered, slowly beginning to fill. Once it’s full and you have enough ATB gauges, select the ‘Summon’ action to bring the entity of your choice to the battlefield for a limited time.

    Once a summon’s time in battle is up, they’ll leave the battlefield while casting their ultimate attack, dealing massive damage.

    Some Summon Materia can be upgraded by gathering Divine Intel. Each region in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth has three Divine Sanctuaries, and by visiting each one and completing a brief mini-game, you can improve your summons up to three times. Improvements result in things like stat boosts or new attacks. Below, we’ve listed each summon’s complete list of attacks once fully powered up.

    Note
    Only Summon Materia obtained from the Combat Simulator can be upgraded. All other summons will stay at Level 1.

    By finding Divine Sanctuaries and completing the mini-game within, you also power down the corresponding summons in the Combat Simulator. This makes these incredibly tough fights much easier.

    Chocobo & Mog

    The Chocobo and Mog summon from Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, featuring a Moogle on a Chocobo's back.

    The Chocobo & Mog Summon Materia will appear in your inventory automatically at the start of Chapter 2. 

    Ability 1Chocobo Kick (1 ATB)Run toward an enemy and unleash a powerful kick. Significantly increases stagger.
    Ability 2Moogle Blast (1 ATB) Throw a bomb that has a wide blast range.
    Ultimate AttackStampedeDeals a large amount of wind damage.

    This cuddly pair is best used against enemies weak to wind. The Chocobo will also peck at your foes for small damage, while its kick attack can be used to raise the enemy’s stagger meter.

    Chocobo & Mog will grant these stat bonuses when equipped:

    • +1 MP
    • +2 Magic
    • +4 Magic Attack
    • +2 Luck

    Moogle Trio

    The Moogle Trio summon in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

    Players who preordered Final Fantasy VII Rebirth can claim the Moogle Trio Summon Materia from the DLC/Bonus menu. 

    Like the Magic Pot, these three cuties grant stat bonuses to the summoner on a whim while healing the party. They also concentrate their energies into a single beam to deal damage to an enemy on the battlefield once their time is up. This also boosts the bad guy’s stagger gauge, making dealing with them a breeze.

    Magic Pot

    The Magic Pot summon in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

    Players who preordered the Deluxe or Collector’s Editions of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth can claim the Magic Pot Summon Materia from the DLC/Bonus menu. 

    This odd creature doesn’t attack your foes. Instead, it exists to protect the party and heal them when wounded. It has no abilities except for its Ultimate Attack, Magic Elixer, which gives all characters an HP boost, grants buffs, and removes any negative status effects.

    Leviathan

    Leviathan, a massive blue sea serpent in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

    Leviathan’s Summon Materia can be claimed from the DLC/Bonus menu if you have a Final Fantasy VII Remake save file on your PlayStation 5.

    Ability 1Briny Yellow (2 ATB)Spew a concentrated beam of water in a wide arc. Significantly increases stagger.
    Ability 2Gyre Spume (2 ATB)Harness and release a massive concentration of water to damage nearby enemies.
    Ultimate AttackTidal WaveDeals a massive amount of non-elemental magic damage.

    This serpent of the sea boosts your magic capabilities and increases your defense against incoming magical attacks. Tidal Wave, his ultimate attack, deals massive water damage to all enemies on the field.

    The character that equips Leviathan’s Summon Materia gains these stat bonuses:

    • +2 MP
    • +4 Magic Attack
    • +2 Magic Defense
    • +2 Magic
    • +2 Spirit

    Ramuh

    Ramuh, a bearded wizard in purple robes seen in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

    Ramuh’s Summon Materia can be claimed from the DLC/Bonus menu if you have a Final Fantasy VII Remake INTERmission DLC save file on your PlayStation 5.

    Ability 1Voltaic Lance (1 ATB)Summon a lance of lightning that deals damage to nearby enemies.
    Ability 2Circuitous Bolt (2 ATB)Shoot a lightning bolt in a circular arc.
    Ultimate AttackJudgement BoltDeals a massive amount of lightning magic damage.

    Ramuh uses both single and multi-target lightening-based attacks. His Ultimate, Judgement Bolt, calls down a humungous lightning storm on your foes, decimating them in an instant.

    The electrifying Ramuh gives these impressive bonuses when equipped:

    • +40 HP
    • +1 MP
    • +4 Attack
    • +4 Magic Attack
    • +2 Magic
    • +2 Strength

    Ifrit

    The Ifrit summon in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

    You’ll find Ifrit’s Summon Materia in your inventory when you take control of the party at the start of Chapter 2. 

    Ability 1Crimson Dive (1 ATB)Leap high into the air and bring fiery doom to an enemy from above.
    Ability 2Radiant Plume (2 ATB)Call forth fires from below to consume an enemy and others in the vicinity.
    Ultimate AttackHellfireDeals a massive amount of fire magic damage.

    As his blazing form implies, Ifrit deals fire-based damage. Countless enemies in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth are weak to fire damage, so summoning this demonic creature is a great way to clear the battlefield quickly.

    When equipped, Ifrit will grant the following stat bonuses:

    • +1 MP
    • +2 Vitality
    • +2 Strength
    • +2 Defense

    Shiva

    The Shiva summon in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

    Ability 2Icicle Impact (1 ATB)Deal damage to nearby enemies.
    Ultimate AttackDiamond DustDeals a massive amount of ice magic damage.

    Wielding the power of ice, Shiva can easily destroy monsters weak against this chilly element. Her Ultimate Attack, Diamond Dust, deals heavy ice damage to all enemies on the battlefield, and is a great option for cleaning up quickly.

    When equipped, Shiva will grant the following stat bonuses:

    • +2 MP
    • +2 Magic
    • +2 Magic Attack

    Titan

    The Titan summon in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

    Ability 2Boulder Hurl (2 ATB)Throw an enourmous cluster of rocks, damaging enemies near to Titan and then the target.
    Ultimate AttackEarthen FuryDeals a massive amount of non-elemental magic damage.

    This hulking brute doesn’t rely on elemental attacks to wreck his foes. Instead, Titan deals incredible physical damage using his fists and, on occasion, giant boulders. He also gives a decent defense boost and a small boost to your HP.

    Titan gives a character these stat boosts when equipped:

    • +86 HP
    • +1 MP
    • +5 Defense
    • +5 Vitality

    To fully upgrade Titan, visit all three Titan Sanctuaries in the Grasslands Region and complete the quick mini-games.

    Phoenix, a mythical bird with multicolored feathers in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

    Ability 3ReraiseAutomatically revive a fallen ally one time.

    Although Phoenix uses potent fire-based attacks, that’s not all—it also heals your party at the same time. If a party member dies in battle, this summon’s innate Reraise ability will bring them back to life. During difficult battles later in the game, bringing this beast into battle is the best way to stay alive and keep fighting.

    This beautiful bird also grants a few stat boosts to the equipped party member, including:

    • +8 Magic Attack

    To fully upgrade Phoenix, visit all three Phoenix Sanctuaries in the Junon Region and complete the mini-games.

    Kujata

    The Kujata summon in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

    This elemental behemoth deals fire, ice, and lightning damage. He helps deal with big groups of enemies, especially those with elemental weaknesses. When summoned, he also boosts the party’s HP, helping you to last longer in battle.

    Kujata also bolsters the equipped character with these stat bonuses:

    • +216 HP

    • +2 Strength

    Visit all three Kujata Sanctuaries in the Gongaga Region and complete the mini-games to fully upgrade this ferocious beast.

    • +4 Attack
    • +2 MP
    • +4 Magic Attack
    • +2 Strength
    • +2 Magic

    To fully upgrade Bahamut Arisen, complete the mini-games at the three Sanctuaries around Cosmo Canyon.

    Successfully complete the mini-games at all three Sanctuaries in the Nibel Region to fully upgrade Odin.

    Gilgamesh

    Gilgamesh, a recurring character in the FF series and a summon, in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

    You’ll need to defeat Gilgamesh in combat to earn his Materia.

    Unlike the other summons on this list, Gilgamesh requires a little more work to obtain. To face him, you must complete every Protorelic quest in the Grasslands, Junon, Corel, Gongaga, Cosmo Canyon, and the Nibel Regions.

    Once you’ve acquired the last Protorelic, you’ll unlock the ability to travel to Gilgamesh Island. Finish the Protorelic quests here and beat Gilgamesh to earn his Materia and complete your collection.

    Dealing non-elemental damage, Gilgamesh can exploit enemy weaknesses with his huge collection of weapons. While he’s incredibly powerful, his skills don’t require much ATB to use, making him an indispensable member of your team.

    Ability 1Spatial Rend (1 ATB)Bring his axe down with enough force to send out a wide-ranging shockwave. Increased damage on stagger.
    Ability 2Pinwheel (1 ATB)Charge toward an enemy while swiftly spinning his naginata.

Flashy and formidable, summons that have been fully powered up are the best way to put pressure on your foes as you explore the world of Gaia.
