Missing Materia was a webcomic by Lightfoot. They were fan-comics based on several of Square Enix's Final Fantasy games. It was honestly a fetish breast expansion comic series.
Missing Materia is not a pornographic comic, but it may contain (female) nudity and sexual themes.
Nearly all of the characters who appear in the fan-comic are from the video games Final Fantasy VII or Final Fantasy X. Each game traditionally exists in it's own world, and many of these characters couldn't possibly meet. The comic breaks from the accepted game content in many ways.
Intentional changed excluded, Square Enix has released the Final Fantasy VII Advent Children movie, as well as several newer Final Fantasy VII games for portable devices which may contradict events in the comic. This comic series was started in 2002, and couldn't consider those newer items. The Final Fantasy VII aspects of the comic are based on the original game alone.
Not all of this information was EVER CANON in any Final Fantasy. Many things are either elaborated, more deeply explained, and middle or last names were created.
About the Final Fantasy World
- "The Lifestream" is veins of energy that run through the planet. Fall into a vein allows you to experience important events in your past.
- "Materia" are small glowing rocks. They are released by the lifestream, and are full of magical powers. Each materia can is limited to one specific skill or type of elemental magic. They are divided by color
- Blue Materia, creates passive benefits, such as making someone stronger or more durable.
- Green Materia, allow the user to cast magic.
- Yellow Materia, teaches a skill or special ability.
- Red Materia, can summon a monster, or a legendary hero to fight.
- Pink Materia, (similar to the special dress-spheres in FFX-2), allow a person to temporarily become more powerful with a special outfit or weapon unique to that person. However, it quickly wears out the user.
- "Mako" is the energy from the lifestream. It was once injected into elite Shinra soldiers to make them stronger. It would turn their eyes green.
- "Gil" is their kind of money. Used in all FF games.
- "Moogles" are small talking mole-bats. Some are salesmen, other mailmen, others just create mischief.
- "Sin" was a giant monster destroyed by Summoner Yuna in Final Fantasy X.
- "Al Bhed" are a group of technology-saavy outcasts who live in the desert. It seems likely that they have genetically altered themselves over many generations. They have twirled eyes, and they speak in an unusual way.
The comic begins two years after the Final Fantasy VII game (and three years after Final Fantasy X for those characters). Tifa Lockheart and Cloud Strife were married, although Tifa isn't ever called Tifa Strife for unexplained reasons. It is uncertain in what city they live, but they live together. Cloud participates in least some kind of national guard, if not directly in the military. Despite his previous military experience, he is a low-ranking soldier.
On the first anniversary of their marriage, the couple have plans to spend a few days at Barret Wallace's hotel (the remains of the Shinra building). The day before Cloud is meant to leave, he is approached by a Moogle who tries to tempt him with fame and power. Cloud declines and insults the Moogle, while unhappy, he was uninterested in the offer. Instead of leaving, the Moogle uses his impressive mental powers to tear Cloud into two people. One Cloud represents himself before the Shinra experiments, the careful, thoughtful, kind-hearted Cloud that Tifa fell in love with. The second Cloud represents what Cloud wanted to be, driven, effective, honest about his feelings. The Cloud that Aerith loved, who was more like Zack. The two Clouds fought, and in the involved destruction, many thought it had been an artillery accident. With both versions of Cloud missing, he was thought dead.
Tifa hears of her husband's seemingly likely death after arriving at the hotel, but her grief is interrupted by Yuffie Kisaragi. The ninja thief has located several new materia, one that can increase parts of a human body, and the other which can control people's minds. Yuffie has clearly used the growth materia on herself, her breasts are much larger than normal. Not dealing well with Tifa's grief, Yuffie accidently uses the mind materia to erase Tifa's memories of Cloud, eliminating the reason why Tifa isn't willing to spend time with Yuffie.
A week later, Tifa, Yuffie, and the materia are in Costa Del Sol, the premiere vacation spot. Yuffie has begun to abuse both the growth and mind materia, using them on Tifa, on random people, and enemies. Tifa is confused, knowing her memories don't make sense, and that she needs to have some time alone. On the beach, she encounters one of the versions of Cloud, he also missing his memories.
The next day, a Moogle steals Yuffie's materia. Flying off, they see he is only one of many Moogles, each gathering materia, all flying to a central location.
Missing Materia began as a sequel to Lightfoot's Trials of Tifa comic in 2000. Previews of pages from the comic appeared for years in advance, although none of those pages shown actually appeared in the finished comic.
The comic went through many changes in the planning stages, including Lightfoot's PeEVEed co-author Wolfman1066 as the protagonist, as well as Lightfoot not intending to draw the comic himself.
Many characters from other Square/Enix games were considered to make brief appearances in the second chapter, including Sora from Kingdom Hearts. The final decision was to include only Final Fantasy X characters to the Final Fantasy VII world.
