Magic points, or MP, represent a character's diminishing ability to cast magic. In more recent games, MP can also be consumed by non-magic attacks, and has sort of become more representative of stamina than anything. MP is often called stamina or mana but usually serves the same purpose. Casting spells or using abilities costs MP; if the character doesn't have enough MP to cast the spell, they usually cannot cast it. Sometimes it is referred to as Mana.
