Potions are special liquids prepared by witches and possibly their male counterpart wizards that simulate various magical effects. A few witches, including Professor Lukić, Sucy, and her mother, specialize in potions.

Description

Potions are brewed with certain ingredients and a specific process of preparation. Misuse of ingredients or an error in preparation may cause undesirable effects. Some potions are meant to be consumed to be effective, while others can be used to attack the target.

Potions are prepared mainly in fire cauldrons and stored in small bottles. Some potions are required to be used in combination with a spell, but most can do their magical effects without them. Latter variant provides field advantage for magic users who wish to conserve their magic reserves or lacking sufficient aptitude in performing magic through traditional means.

Relative to how they are brewed, potions can be processed into either powder or jell-like state as shown through Explosive Powder potion and Magic Glue respectively.

Notable Potion Ingredients

List of Potions

# Name Description Image
1. Festering Potion Festering Potion is a potion that can reduce living beings that either touch or consume it into caustic goo. The level of its causticness seem to depend on the quantity of utilized ingredients.

Sucy used one to kill a Minotaur in the first film where she remarked its effect too strong, as the beast's molten body ends up burning through the dungeon's floor.

2. Poison Gas Potion Poison Gas Potion is a potion that evaporates into a cloud of poison upon contact with the air. The gas' tremendous killing ability can be amplified through increasing the dosage of magical energy used in brewing it.

In the first film, Sucy uses the Poison Gas Potion to kill the sealed Briton Red Dragon that escaped its prison and wreaked havoc at the New Moon Tower, but due to the dragon's magic-absorbing ability coupled with the magic in said potion, fails and accelerates its growth further instead.

3. Mandrake Soup Mandrake Soup is a potion which, as its name suggested, made of boiled Mandrake chops and restores the drinker's magic reserves in addition of temporarily bolsters their power at the same. However, the drinker must posssess sufficient mastery over their magic in order to both handle and harness the power increase at its fullest.

In Terio Teri Manga, Sucy brews this potion out of her 5-year old Mandrake Gora-chan for Akko in order to quickly increase her magic power. Unfortunately, Akko's inexperience with magic sees her comically causing a fiery explosion via. amplified basic Flame Magic spell which destroys much of their dorm room by mistake, leading the red team to receive detention in form of cleaning bathroom in the next day.

4. Puppet Magic Potion

—Description of Control Magic Potion

Also known as Control Magic Potion, Puppet Magic Potion is a potion for performing Puppet Magic. It has two variants; one that needs to be poured over the target to magically inanimate it under his/her control for a limited amount of time and the other that must be consumed to briefly improve the user's puppet magic performance. The latter's effect only lasted long enough for the user to cast only one mending magic spell, forcing her to ingest more to cast another. Said variant is arguably concocted that way for both discouraging the user from rely on it and for training purposes.

5. Nutrient Potion Nutrient Potion is a potion that activates and accelerates the grow of vegetation.

In "Don't Stop Me Now", Sucy uses it on the brooms of the other participants of the Luna Nova Cup to adhere their brooms to the ground with plants and prevent them from flying. She probably uses a variety in "Samhain Magic" to grow giant mushrooms.

8. Explosive Powder Potion Explosive Powder Potion is a potion that dried into powder form with volatile properties akin to gunpowder true to its namesake. Unlike the latter, however, the potion's powder state is as light as ash or smoke particles thus stays in the air around the target(s) like a cloud, a feature the user can exploit as a form of deceptive smokescreen. Once the target(s) got surrounded by the powder cloud, the user can ignite it to trigger a violent explosion that burns the enemy. Not surprisingly, the use of this potion requires keen senses to read the air currents, the insight to read the targets' movements, tactical experience to not also engulf one's allies in the explosion, and careful attention for the timing of the ignition, especially if it being used on the ground instead of while flying where such requirement being less strict.

In "Luna Nova and the White Dragon", Sucy used one to combat Fafnir's Robot Dragons.

11. Ultra Super Energy Drink The experimental ultimate potion brewed by Sucy in Sleeping Sucy. It's supposedly gives the user greater magic ability than usual, but only knocks Sucy out for a bit and inflicted her with Sleeping Witch Disease instead.

Before testing it to herself, she considered to use it on Akko, but eventually against it upon foreseeing that it will fully awaken the Japanese witch's magic potential and would made her life boring.

Unfortunately, that, coupled with the Cactus Nutrient's unintended side effect where the water becomes pink in color, resulted the unintended misunderstanding with Finnelan who mistakes Akko about to hurt Pisces again.
