Threaten (おどす, Odosu?) is a status effect exclusive to Final Fantasy X, primarily inflicted via the Threaten ability.

An enemy afflicted with Threaten becomes immobilized and is unable to act until the caster's next turn. Enemies under this status cannot use their counterattacks, but can still evade attacks.

Shiva's special attack, Heavenly Strike, inflicts Threaten to an enemy (the in-game description erroneously calls it delay). Heavenly Strike used by Belgemine's Shiva in the Calm Lands is the only enemy ability that can inflict Threaten, which is irrelevant as party members and aeons are naturally immune to the status.
