Death Force (デスフォース, Desu Fōsu?) is a status found exclusively in Final Fantasy VII, granted by the Death Force spell. It gives protection from Instant Death until the end of battle. Despite Death Force being an enemy ability, the lone enemy that casts Death Force never uses it in battle, thus the status never afflicts enemies unless Death Force is deliberately placed on an enemy by the player.
If Death-sentence is cast upon a unit with the Death Force status, the timer will count down, but when it reaches zero, nothing will occur since the Death-sentence status chains into the Death status which the unit is protected against. Death Force does not protect the player against the Death Joker Limit Break. Death Force is removed by DeSpell or White Wind.
Manhole is the only enemy immune to Death Force.
