FFVII Crisis Core: How to Use SP

When you begin playing the game, you’ll notice that you’re earning SP after every fight. However, there doesn’t seem to be any way actually to use this at first. You’ll go through the first few chapters of the game earning SP but having nothing to spend it on. There isn’t a skill tree or anything comparable in Crisis Core. Instead, you’ll spend it in the Materia Fusion Menu, which unlocks after the first few chapters.

Once you’ve unlocked Materia Fusion, you’ll be able to spend your SP on making more powerful Materia combinations. The more potent the Materia you’re crafting, the more SP it will cost you. You’ll end up with far more SP than you ever need, so don’t be afraid to spend it crafting the most powerful Materia you can. Materia in Crisis Core is your lifeblood, giving you access to magic and unique abilities that will change the tide of battle.
