X-Potion in Final Fantasy VII

The X-Potion (エクスポーション, Ekusupōshon), also known as Cure3, is a recurring item in the Final Fantasy series. It usually restores one character's HP to full. Usually unable to purchase from shops, they have to be stolen, morphed or dropped from enemies, or found in chests. Like Elixirs, Megalixirs and other full recovery items, they have a resale value of only a gil, to discourage players from selling them. The exception to this is in Final Fantasy XII.
