FF7 Rebirth: Enemy Skill Materia guide

Sorta like a Blue Mage

Even though it wasn’t a huge feature in Final Fantasy 7 Remake, in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, Enemy Skill Materia makes a return. The Materia is somewhat similar to the popular Blue Mage featured in other Final Fantasy games. More specifically, the Materia lets you acquire the skills of some of the enemies you encounter, and then use them against your foes. In this FF7 Rebirth Enemy Skill Materia guide we will explain where and how you can get Enemy Skills and the Enemy Skill Materia as well as which ones are available.

How to get the Enemy Skill Materia in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth

Thankfully, actually getting the Enemy Skill Materia, at least at 1 Star, is very easy. Once you unlock Chadley and the Combat Simulator you can easily obtain the Enemy Skill Materia by completing the Biological Intel: Know Thine Enemy Combat Simulation.

Just visit Chadley and choose to Enter Combat Simulator. Once there, under the All tab, look for Biological Intel: Know Thine Enemy. Eliminate the three Fleetwing foes and you will obtain the Enemy Skill Materia as well as the first Enemy Skill which is Sonic Boom.
