Group Hug is a special move used in the game Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars to heal all party members. The amount healed is proportional to the characters' Max HP. It restores HP better than HP Rain, but not as well as Therapy. Princess Peach is the only one who can learn this move. Group Hug is often considered to be the most valuable Special Attack in the entire game.[1]
