Nope. If you failed the submarine minigame, the Huge Materia is as good as lost in that playthrough.

However, if you DIDN'T fail the sub minigame, you have to go find the crashed sub on the seafloor and retrieve the Huge Materia.

How do you fail? Are you sure you failed? Have you tried going to check the sub?

Your topic post seems to suggest that you didn't pick up the Huge Materia from the sunken Red Sub.

If however, you did in fact fail to sink the Red Sub then the Huge Materia is gone for good.

I missed the corel reactor materia my first playthrough ever.

Was so frustrated I couldn't get the third summon.

Is ultima still attainable? I know barrett's limit isnt

you can still get bahamaut zero itself so thats not missable. can dig it up disc 3 in harp location, likewise can do same with pheonix if thats also missed

because of that I think you can essentially miss "one" huge materia and not miss out on any materias. Miss "two" or more huge materias tho and you lose the ability to be able spawn all three types of new mastered materias.

The one with the biggest consequence is coral as if you mess that up bad enough you can lose out on ultima. (two fail conditions, the first one still lets you buy ultima).

Okay so basically when I got to the Underwater Reactor and got to the submarine game where you have to shoot down the submarine I failed and progressed the story and then when I got to Cosmo Canyon at the telescope room with the old man there was only three huge Materia so I went back to the Underwater Reactor and it was locked my girlfriend seems to think I can use a submarine and go down in the ocean to get it but I must to skip that dialogue part when they give me the sub because I'm pretty confused because the Underwater Reactor is locked
