The Remedy (万能薬, Bannōyaku), also known as Cureall, is a recurring item from the Final Fantasy series. It heals all status ailments for one character with the exception of KO, and in some cases, Curse. A similar item called Unicorn, or Unicorn Horn, acts like a Remedy, though it acts much more as an item version of Esuna, and is usually in the early installments that did not have a Remedy, though it was also in Final Fantasy IV with Remedy.
The Unicorn Horn acts as a Remedy in this game, casting Basuna. It can only be won from enemies or found in some treasure chests throughout the game.
The Angel's Sigh acts as a Remedy, casting Esuna when used. It is also only found by finding it or winning/stealing from enemies.

Remedy is a calm, level-headed, medibot, but he has little patience for fools.
Remedy treated Modus Prime after an attack on the Altihex energon refinery, but was unable to save his wounded leader. Grief-stricken over Modus' passing, he allowed Strongarm to inspect the body and ascertain cause of death. He and his team were soon inundated by panic-stricken Mini-Cons fearful of catching the "madness disease" Broadside claimed had afflicted Modus' assailant.
