[[caption-width-right:193:All you need to replenish your spiritual essence.]]

Any item that restores an amount of {{Mana}} a character has, or restores uses of spells (in the case of VancianMagic) and special attacks.

The amount can vary, from just a fraction of a ManaMeter or one use of a low level spell, to restoring all the magic points or restoring all uses of every level spell. If there is a range of these items, the lower level restoring ones will cost less and be more plentiful in [[InexplicableTreasureChests Treasure Chests]] and [[RandomlyDrops Random Item Dropping]] (although in most games, healing items of the same level tend to be more common).

Obviously absent in cases when there is no ManaMeter and spells simply need material components to cast. In some settings, however, mana potions are specifically necessary as a component to cast spells, because reserves of mana have to be acquired rather than generated naturally.

Unlike said healing potions which can be red or green, mana potions are nearly universally ColorCodedForYourConvenience in blue.

Also note that {{Trauma Inn}}s, {{Healing Spring}}s, and {{Healing Checkpoint}}s often restore magic as well as health.

A SubTrope of StandardRPGItems.

A SisterTrope to RegeneratingMana, HealingPotion (restores the LifeMeter), {{Panacea}} (heals disease and status).

!!Examples
* The ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' games restore magic with the item "Ether", and the more powerful "X-Ether". Some games have other variants as well.
* The "Mana Prism", in some ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' games, restores all magic.
** In some games, hearts restores magic instead of adding ammo to the sub weapons. These games include both ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaChroniclesOfSorrow'' games, and ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaPortraitOfRuin''.
* In ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' games that use magic, a green potion restores magic, and a blue potion restores life and magic. Enemies also drop bottle-shaped items that restore magic.
** In ''VideoGame/ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink'', enemies would drop a blue bottle that restores some magic, and a red bottle that restores all of it. Some red potions were in fixed locations, such as statues that needed to be slashed to drop them.
* In ''Gobli's Adventure'', the sample game that came with the Playstation version of RPGMaker, Blue Berries serve this role to Red Berries' HealingPotion.
* Blackberries are the most common example of this in the ''Franchise/StarOcean'' series, but various other potions and [[HyperactiveMetabolism food and drink]] also serve this role.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'' and [[VideoGame/{{Okamiden}} the sequel]], ink pots refill your ink, which function like a ManaMeter.
* In ''VideoGame/FortuneSummoners'', 'magic candy' refills your MP.
* In some ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts'', games, enemies can drop balls that restore MP. That is in addition to the Ether potions crossed over from the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' series. In games that don't have MP, but still have some form of ability meter, Ether is instead used to heal that.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Crystalis}}'', the Fruit of Power restores some MP, the Magic Ring restores all of it, and Deo's Pendant gradually restores MP if equipped and the player stands still.
* ''VideoGame/{{Dubloon}}'' features alcohol beverages as items replenishing your [[ManaMeter alcohol points]] [[BoozeBasedBuff needed to cast magic]].
* In ''Videogame/SuperMarioRPG'', and [[VideoGame/PaperMario the]] [[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigi subsequent]] Mario RPG games, Syrups restore flower points.
* In the ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' games, drinks restore MP.
* In the first ''VideoGame/{{Wild ARMs}}'' game a Magic Carrot restores MP (later games had you build up magic).
* In some ''VideoGame/PhantasyStar'' games, Fluids restore MP.
* ''VideoGame/DungeonsAndDragonsOnline'' has the rather expensive Potions of Mnemonic Enhancement, which restore your Spell Points.
* ''VideoGame/{{Nox}}'' had regular mana potions but also "mana stones": stationary glowing pillars that quickly restored your mana if you stood nearby. Particularly when playing as wizard, controlling large conglomerations of mana stones was essential to winning long battles.
* During [[SpiritWorld the Fade]] sections in the ''Franchise/DragonAge'' series, you often encounter [[AppliedPhlebotinum lyrium]] outcroppings that instantly restore your mana to full.
* ''VideoGame/{{Wizardry}}'' has Magicfood effect -- in VII, it's Golden Apples (1), Moser's Mojo Tea (2), Bottle of Old Jake's (4), Mana Stone (6), Milk of Magmanasia (6) and Stave of 12 Stars (level 6, x12 charges).
* ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}''
** Mana Potions restored your character's mana.
** Magical weapons could have a special ability that restored your mana when they hit an opponent.
* ''VideoGame/{{Breath of Fire 3}}'': Equipping an item that reduces AP cost and using transfer on yourself actually heals your MP.
* [=ThinkGeek=] [[http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/a273/ sells real-life mana potions.]]
* in ''VideoGame/{{Pokemon}}'' games, you can find various kinds of Ethers and Elixirs in item balls. Ethers restore part of a move's PP, while Max Ethers restore all of it. Elixirs and Max Elixirs restore some and all PP to all moves, respectively. Especially handy for the Elite Four, and you can't buy them in the shops. Most games since the third let you grow Leppa berries, which do the same thing, making Ethers rather obsolete.
* The ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'' series has vials of magic water that restore different amounts of MP. They're usually very rare and aren't sold in stores, often making them TooAwesomeToUse. There's also the Prayer Ring, an equippable accessory that can be used as an item to recover MP. It can be used multiple times, but each use has a chance of randomly destroying it.
* Mana Leaves/Seeds/Roots/Extracts from the ''VideoGameShadowHearts'' trilogy
* In first two ''Franchise/BioShock'' games, this purpose is served by the EVE Hypos. [[HyperactiveMetabolism Consuming certain drinks or smoking]] will also restore small amounts of mana at the expense of health.
* Tass in ''[[{{Webcomic/Morphe}} morphE]]'', it tastes great mixed in with tea.
* Piero's Spiritual Remedy in ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}''.
* Blue Potions and Blue Herbs, along with a few fruits, serve this purpose in ''VideoGame/RagnarokOnline''. Like the {{Healing Potion}}s, they can be crafted by all. The Alchemist class is also able to chuck them at allies.
* ''[[Literature/AMagesPower A Mage's Power]]'': If a mage needs a boost in a hurry, they can down a bottle of Mana Juice! [[UrbanFantasy Availiable at your local convenience store]]
* ''{{VideoGame/Terraria}}'' has four different levels of Mana Potion, each restoring increasing amounts of Mana. While you can guzzle them all day (and automatically so with the Mana Flower), drinking one imposes the Mana Sickness debuff, temporarily reducing your magic damage output.
