|Interrupt stats||Interrupted by attacks with ≥40 interrupt strength|
|Compatible Support Materia|| Magnify Materia|
Resist costs 8 MP to cast, and can be cast by characters with cleansing materia at level 3. It prevents all negative statuses on one party member for a duration of two minutes. However, if a character is already afflicted with a negative status at the time Resist is applied to them, that status will still remain on the character for its usual duration. It can prevent debuffs such as Poison, Toad, Sleep, Silence, and Stop, which can otherwise cripple a character. This can keep them safe at all times, and also be MP- or item-efficient by not having to rely on casting Esuna or using items to cure debuffs.
Resist has a similar effect to accessories that can immunize to specific debuffs. Resist is more generalized, but will cost MP to use, and is required to be cast on all characters at the start of a battle to be useful. The cleansing materia can be paired with Magnify Materia to apply the Resist buff to everyone at a slightly reduced duration.
