Enemy Skills

There are only a few of these very handy materias to be found. The first one you get is at Shinra Headquarters after you rescue Red XIII. There are also Enemy Skills materias at Junon, the Forgotten City, and the Chocobo Sage's House.

The best way to get enemy skills from enemies is to manipulate them, then have them cast the desired spell on your people.

Level 4 Suicide:

Find: Grasslands Area, Mu

Does heavy-duty damage to all targets whose level is a multiple of 4.

Matra Magic:

Find: Grasslands Area, Custom Sweeper; Corel Prison, Bull Motor; various others

Does light type-less damage to all enemies.


Find: Corel Prison, Death Claw

Reduces a target's HP by 1/2. Doesn't always work.

Frog Song:

Find: Gongaga Area, Touch Me; Temple of the Ancients, Toxic Frog

Casts Sleepel and Toad on one target, or cures Toad from one target.

White Wind:

Find: Junon Area, Zemzelett; Whirlwind Maze, Wind Wing

Refills the HP of all allies by an amount equal to the caster's current HP. Also relieves most conditions.

Big Guard:

Find: Corel Area (shoreline only, near Costa del Sol), Beach Plug

This handy Enemy Skill casts Barrier, MBarrier, and Haste on all targets.

Magic Hammer:

Find: Wutai Area, Razor Weeds

Steals 100 MP from a single target.

Death Force:

Find: Wutai Area, Adamantaimai

Protects the targets from instant death spells like Death.

Flame Thrower:

Find: Mythril Mine, Archdragon; Nibel Mtn., Dragon; Northern Crater, Dark Dragon.

Does decent Fire-typed damage to one target.


Find: Gold Saucer Area, Harpy (desert only); City of the Ancients, Jenova LIFE.

Does decent Water-typed damage to all enemies.


Find: Grasslands Area (swamp), Midgar Zolom

Does moderate to heavy Fire damage to all enemies. Midgar Zolom will cast this one only if his health is very low, and you can't manipulate him.

Bad Breath:

Find: Gaea Cliff, Molbor; Nothern Crater, Marlboro. (I find it very amusing that Marlboros give you "Bad Breath.")

Attempts to cast Poison, Sleepel, Mini, Toad, and Confu on all enemies.


Find: Nibel Mtn., Materia Keeper; Gaea's Cliff, Stilv

Does moderate Lightning-type damage to all enemies.

Magic Breath:

Find: Gaea's Cliff, Stilv

Does pretty heavy Fire, Ice, and Lightning damage to all enemies.


Find: Shinra Mansion, Jersey; Midgar Sector 8, Behemoth

Does type-less damage equal to the caster's max HP minus his/her current HP to one target.


Find: Grasslands Area, Level 16 Chocobo

The way to get this is to buy 3 Mimmet Greens at the Chocobo Ranch, then go right outside and look for a chocobo that is accompanied by either two Elfadunks or two Levikrons. Give the chocobo all three Mimmet Greens, then hit him with a Level 4 Suicide. He'll get so mad that he'll cast Chocobuckle on you, which does damage equal to the number of times you've run away from battle.

Goblin Punch:

Find: Goblin Island, Goblin

Does very little damage to one enemy, unless your level is the same as the enemy's (a pretty rare event), in which case, it does very heavy type-less damage.

Shadow Flare:

Find: Junon/Cosmo Area, Ultima Weapon; Northern Crater, Dragon Zombie

One enemy is hit for very heavy, type-less damage.

Pandora's Box:

Find: Final Dungeon, Dragon Zombie

All enemies are hit for heavy type-less damage (and it looks cool, too).

Angel Whisper:

Find: Final Dungeon, Pollensalita

Completely refills the HP and cures conditions from a single target. Will also revive and refill a dead character's HP. Probably one of the best Enemy Skills.

Dragon Force:

Find: Final Dungeon, Dark Dragon

One target's physical and magic defense are increased by 50%.

Level 5 Death:

Find: Final Dungeon, Parasite

Instantly kills all enemies whose level is a multiple of 5. Does not work on bosses.

Death Sentence:

Find: Cave of the Gi, Sneaky Step & Death Spector

Condemns one enemy. When his counter runs out, he's toast.

Death Roulette:

Find: Final Dungeon, Death Dealer

Probably the most elusive of Enemy Skills. This one starts a little game of roulette, where one person in the battle, enemy or ally, is killed instantly. Doesn't work on bosses, so don't even try.
