This Materia is more useful the better you get to grips with it. Each character will have a different version of Parry but Cloud and Tifa are the best characters for it. When guarding, press the [CIRCLE] button to activate the Parry and you can even pair this with HP Absorption for some HP back too. Tifa's especially will see her slide towards the enemy and any damage she takes during it will be blocked, a great gap closer.
