Leon under Amnesia in Final Fantasy II.

Amnesia (アムネジア, Amunejia?, lit. Amnesia) is a recurring status effect in some Final Fantasy games which has several effects, depending on the game. In some ways it resembles the status effect Addle.


Final Fantasy II[]

Amnesia is a stronger form of Silence, preventing the use of spells and lasting until it is cured, either by a Mallet or Esuna at Lv.4 or higher.

Final Fantasy XI[]

FFXI Amnesia Status.png

Amnesia is a status effect which prohibits a player from using any job abilities or weapon skills. Players can still cast spells and attack as normal. Imps are the most common imposers of the status effect with their common ability Abrasive Tantara, though Lamiae, Qiqirn, and Ladybugs also have the ability to inflict the status.

As an example, the High Notorious Troll, Gurfurlur the Menacing, can cause Amnesia with his Haymaker ability.

Players who are afflicted with Amnesia may experience some difficulty in removing it, although the enchantment of the Ecphoria Ring can remove the effect when inflicted by certain of the weaker monsters.

Some protection against Amnesia may be obtained through the White Magics Baramnesia or Baramnesra, Barfire or Barfira (as Amnesia is a Fire-aligned status), and the job trait Resist Amnesia. The Negate Amnesia (ネゲートアムネジア, Negēto Amunejia?, lit. Negate Amnesia) status bestowing temporary item Amnesia Screen (抗アムネジア薬, Kouamnejiayaku?, lit. Anti-Amnesia Medicine) available in Abyssea will prevent Amnesia completely for two minutes.

Players may be able to inflict this status on monsters by striking them with the Great Axe Vermeil Bhuj. Certain monsters in Abyssea may be inflicted with Amnesia status by means of Weakness Stagger.

FFXI Impairment Pathos status.png

Impairment (インペア, Inpea?, lit. Impair) is a similar status that is inflicted as part of the Pathos of Alzadaal on those who dare venture deep into the Ruins of Alzadaal to take part in Salvage. It is removed by leaving the ruins, or by obtaining and using a Opacus Cell.

Final Fantasy XIV[]

Amnesia is a status effect that prevents the execution of Job Abilities. It is considerably rarer than Silence or Pacification.
