I couldn't miss the chance to practice my drawing!
The following is a list of all statuses found in Final Fantasy III.
List of statuses
Poisoned characters will lose 1/16 of their max HP at the end of each round, and while walking on the field map, will lose 1 HP per step. Damage taken from Poison outside of battle cannot kill a Poisoned character.
|Hellish Claws||Weapons||Inflicts Poison when attacking physically.|
|Poison Arrow||Weapon||Inflicts Poison.|
|Poison Dagger||Weapon||Inflicts Poison when attacking physically.|
The status effect is healed by Eye Drops and the Blindna spell. Monsters affected by Blind have their Accuracy and Magic Accuracy halved.
The status effect prevents the use of magic and drastically decreases a character's Attack and Defense, causing all attacks to deal , or 0 damage. The ailment can only be cured with a Maiden's Kiss, Esuna, or a Toad spell. It is necessary for the party to be in Toad status to advance past the first room in the Tower of Owen.
The level 7 Breakga spell can inflict this status as well as the Medusa Arrows, while the Stare enemy ability and Leviathan's Demon Eye can inflict the status as well. The Petit enemy can inflict the status through physical attacks.
Petrified enemies are instantly defeated.
|Sleep||Black Magic||Inflicts Sleep.|
|Dream Harp||Weapon||Inflicts Sleep.|
|Sleep Arrow||Weapon||Inflicts Sleep.|
|Sleep Arrow||Weapon||Inflicts Sleep.|
|Glare||Enemy Ability||Inflicts Sleep to one target.|
|Mesmerize||Summon/Shiva||Inflicts Sleep to all enemies.|
Paralysis can be caused by the Shade level 4 Black Magic spell and Ramuh's white effect, as well as by the Mind Blast enemy ability. It is also inflicted by the Ancient Sword and Earthen Bell weapons, as well as by the Bad Breath enemy ability. Paralysis can also be inflicted through the physical attacks of the Ruinous Wave, Parademon, Barometz, Stroper, Roper, and Nemesis enemies.
Also known as Petr or as Partial Petrification, it makes the affected character turn to stone after a few turns in battle, rendering them unable to act, with the amount of time being reduced with every additional application. In the original NES version, instead, a character or a monster becomes petrified if inflicted with Partial Petrification twice.
The Break Blade, Golem Staff, Medusa Arrow and Omnirod weapons inflict this status, as well as the Break spell; in the NES version, the Medusa Arrows inflict instant Petrify. The Helldiver, Stalagmite, Myrmecoleon, Chimera, Cockatrice, Rock Gargoyle, Kum Kum, Medusa, and Cerberus enemies use this.
It can be removed with the Soft item. Gradual Petrify is accumulative and unique in that it does nothing on its own, but will inflict Full Petrification once it fully stacks. A character is first 1/3 petrified, then 2/3 petrified, then fully petrified. Full Petrification differs from Petrify in that it requires resistance to Partial Petrification and not Petrify in order to protect against it.
The Protect status can be provided by using the Protect spell, the Defender as an item, or the Minne song from the Madhura Harp with the Sing command. The status is somewhat random: it can nullify 25%, 50% or even more, while the effect of the song can be increased by job-leveling.
The Sing formula is as follows:
- Recipient's Defense + (20 + Recipient's JobLv / 11)%
Haste increases the Attack power of the target based on the power of the spell and increases the target's Attack Multiplier based on the Multiplier and Accuracy of the spell. Changing items in a character's hand will negate the effect of Haste.
Haste is acquired from the level 6 White Magic spell of the same name. Unei can also cast Haste when she joins the party as a guest, and this variant is cast over the entire party. The item Bacchus's Cider can also cast Haste.
- Recipient's Attack + (20 + Recipient's JobLv / 11)%
Reflect can be achieved through the Reflect spell, Odin's Protective Light summoning spell, and the Shining Curtain item. In the NES version, the Erase spell is bugged and does not remove the Reflect status even if it is supposed to. Further, the Reflect spell itself is bugged in the NES version and does not reflect magic back at enemies when cast on allies. The Leviathan boss can cast this spell on itself.
Job Adjustment Phase
While under the effects of the Job Adjustment Phase, all five of a character's primary stats are reduced by approximately 12.5%. These reduced stats are indicated by yellow numbers instead of white, and will return to normal after the requisite number of battles has been fought while still in that job.
