    MP (also known as magic points, mana points or simply mana) is a resource commonly found in role-playing games, usually of the fantasy variety. Characters expend MP to cast spells, and it can usually be regained through consuming food or a potion,

    It is also usually magic-using classes such as mages or healers who are in position of the highest max MP and as a general rule MP increases as a character levels up. Like many of the base mechanics of RPG video games, MP was originally taken from pen and paper roleplaying games.
