Venom as seen in Final Fantasy IX.

Venom (猛毒, Mōdoku?, lit. Deadly Poison) 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.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Final Fantasy II[edit | edit source]

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.

Final Fantasy IX[edit | edit source]

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.

The effect can be removed by using an Antidote or Remedy, or with the spell Panacea, and can be prevented altogether with the Antibody support ability.

Final Fantasy XV[edit | edit source]

Envenomed is similar to Poison, but lasts longer. Characters will recover from it after a certain length of time. It can be cured the same ways as Poison and is otherwise treated as the same effect. Afflicted units will take on a green sheen for the duration.
