Venom (猛毒, Mōdoku?, lit. Deadly Poison), also known as Envenomed, is a recurring status ailment in the Final Fantasy series. It appears as both weaker and stronger forms of the Poison status depending on the game.
Venom removes HP from the afflicted character in each turn similar to Poison, however, it does not last after battle and there is a chance of recovery at the end of every turn. Venom can be cured by the White Magic spell Basuna at any level.
The unit is affected by strong poison and cannot take action, while HP and MP both periodically decrease. It is characterized by green and purple bubbles coming from the character, and a bottle symbol in the status windows. Venom does not wear off, and ultimately will result in a Game Over if the only character(s) left are afflicted.
|Venom Breath||Enemy Attack||Inflicts Venom.|
|Venom Powder||Enemy Attack||Inflicts Venom.|
|Scissor Fangs||Weapon||Has Venom as an Add Status.|
|Antibody||Auto-Ability||Protects against Poison and Venom.|
Envenomed functions similarly to Poison, and is inflicted by the hazardous pools of poison in the Daurell Caverns. The status cannot be cured, but characters will recover from it after a certain length of time. It can still be prevented with Ribbons, or the Magitek Exosuits while in combat. Afflicted units will take on a green sheen for the duration.
