Listed below are the statuses in the 3D versions of Final Fantasy IV.

List of statuses[edit | edit source]

KO[edit | edit source]

KO is a permanent status, it can only be removed by using Raise, Arise, Phoenix Down, Phoenix, and Asura with her multi-target Raise. This status has the highest priority when set. It means HP is equal to 0; the character will be unable to take any action because the ATB bar will not increase. When inflicted on enemies, they will die and disappear when this status is afflicted on them.

This can be inflicted by the status attacks of Deathbringer, the Death spell, the Trap Door's Ninth Dimension, when Doom's countdown timer reaches 0, or simply reducing the target's HP to 0. Strong enemies and bosses are immune to KO. The KO status has the following properties. Physical and magical attacks on a target that has KO are automatically re-targeted. Having this status counts as dead for determining a game over. This status will effectively remove all other statuses, unlike in the 2D versions, except Toad, Mini, and Pig.

Stone[edit | edit source]

Stone indicates a fully-petrified character. The character cannot act or be targeted by attacks. This status will remove all other statuses except Toad, Mini, Pig, Focus, Bluff, Bravery, Faith, and Bubble. Like KO, Stone persists indefinitely, will lead to a "game over", and negates Experience Points. Enemies under this status will vanish.

This status can be cured with a Gold Needle, Remedy, or by casting Esuna.

Toad[edit | edit source]

Toad icon ffiv ios.PNG

Once a character turns to Toad, both the character's Strength and Stamina are reduced to 1. This makes them extremely weak in battle, being dealt huge amounts of damage by enemy attacks while dealing only 1 point of damage per attack. In addition, a character afflicted with Toad will be unable to cast any spell or ninjutsu, with the exception of the black magic Toad. The status also prevents the usage of several commands such as Jump and Focus

Toad can be cured by casting Toad or Esuna, or using a Maiden's Kiss or Remedy on the afflicted character. Toad does not wear off after a battle, and if the party leader is afflicted with it, his/her sprite will be of a toad. Characters afflicted with Toad are immune to Mini and Pig.

Mini[edit | edit source]

A character under the Mini status will appear as miniature version of him/herself. Also, his/her Strength and Stamina reduced to 1, similar to Toad's effect. However, unlike being under Toad, being under Mini does not prevent casting of any spells or ninjutsu.

Pig[edit | edit source]
