Lenna casts a full-party Curaga in Final Fantasy V Advance.

Curaga (ケアルガ, Kearuga), also known as Cure 3, is a recurring spell from the Final Fantasy series. It is a more powerful form of Cure and Cura (Cure 2), which is used to restore a lot of Hit points.

This is an advanced White Magic spell, usually obtained in the later parts of the game. In most of the recent of the Final Fantasy series, a single-target cast of Curaga resulted in recovering all HP of the target.
