There are several stats that contribute to the fighting ability of each magical girl.

Attribute Description Maximum
Level Lv The overall power of your character. 99
HP The maximum health points of your character. 8823
MP The maximum magic points of your character. 9019
Soul Gem Level ソウルジェムLv The overall power of your character. ?
Exp to next Level 次のレベルまで How many points left until you level up again. n/a
Experience Points The total exp your character has gained. 999999
Sortie Count 出撃回数 The number of times this girl was chosen as party lead. n/a
STR Strength. Damage for regular attacks. 255
MAG Magic. Damage for special magics. 255
VIT Vitality. Determines your HP. 255
CON Concentration. Determines your MP. 255
AGI Agility. Determines your run/walk speed and your jump distance/height. 255

The 5 attributes (STR, MAG, VIT, CON, AGI) will increase naturally as you level up. Each girl earns different attribute points at different levels. Additionally, you can increase attributes by spending strengthening points; 1 strengthening point will increase 1 attribute by 1.

Your HP and MP will increase immediately when you spend points on VIT and CON, even at max level (99). However, not all VIT values yield HP boosts; you may not gain HP when increasing VIT from 33 to 34, but you may gain HP when you increase VIT from 34 to 35, for example. The same is true for CON and MP.

You earn strengthening points (those purple orbs) whenever one of your characters gains a level. They can be spent to increase the battle attributes however you choose (STR, MAG, VIT, CON, AGI). Depending on what level they are, you earn different numbers of points. Keep in mind that each character can only obtain a maximum of 255 in each attribute, and any further bonus attributes gained through level up will be wasted. Once all your characters are at maximum level, you can no longer earn more strengthening points.

There are exactly enough strengthening points to raise every character to 255 in all 5 attributes. If you misspent any of your points, you will be given back the excess when you clear story mode.

Strengthening Points Earned per Level
Level Points Earned
1 to 9 0
10 to 29 1
30 to 49 2
50 to 69 3
70 to 99 4

Special Magics

Special magics are the unique spells of each character. They may be the strongest damaging attacks available to you, but they come at a price. You equip 3 at a time, and you are free to switch them between missions.

Special magics require a large chunk of MP to use. Furthermore, as you increase the level of a support magic, the cost will often increase faster than the damage.

Each special magic has its own cool down gauge. The current gauge is shown in the bottom right corner of the screen, and you can cycle through your chosen magics with left and right on the d-pad.

When you target a specific enemy, a red ring circles around them. Depending on the distance between you and the target, sometimes the ring will fill with white; if you hit the target in this condition, it will become a critical hit. The critical distance is different for each special magic.

Support Skills

Support Skills are available to everyone (eventually). You can equip up to 3 at a time, and you are free to switch them between missions. Your support skills don't affect your partner, and your partner's support skills don't affect you.

You learn Support Skills during certain level-ups, and you can enhance them by spending spell books (1 for a level 2 skill, 3 for a level 3 skill, 5 for a second-last level skill, and 10 for a level MAX skill). Each girl learns Support Skills in a different order. Some Support Skills are earned by clearing the game, or by buying a full set of DLC costumes (for 400 jpy per costume per character).

Note: The Mitakihara uniforms for Mami and Homura were free, due to issues with VoiceWorld at launch. (VoiceWorld is a service where players can use a real world phone to have private telephone conversations with Mami and Homura.)

  • At the time the game's announcement by Dengeki and Famitsu, the console in which The Battle Pentagram would be release was subject to confusion. Famitsu incorrectly listed the game under the PS3 label. They have since issued an apology for the mistake.[1]


  • In Timeline 3, Madoka asks Homura to "Save everyone so they can fight Walpurgis Nacht together" instead of "Keep me from getting tricked by Kyubey."
  • It was a dream by Homura all along
