The Magic Capsule (also known as Magic Tab in the SNES/PS version) is a consumable item in Chrono Trigger. It increases the basic Magic stat of any character by 1.

It is found as a blue sparkle on a surface, by using Charm on an enemy, or is given by an NPC. There are 40 magic tabs in the entire game, (not counting New Game Plus) 15 of which are obtained by fighting Spekkio at different levels at the End of Time, 17 are found on maps, and 8 tabs can be charmed by Ayla.
