Official Main Series Status Effects

Border Line1
Status Poison Name Poison
Creator Capcom
Description
A common status effect that causes a gradual loss of health over a period of time. Once the Poison has worn off, the red portion of the health bar will recover slowly. Depending on the monster and the rank of the quest, the Poison can drain the health bar at a faster rate than normal. The duration of Poison can be increased, decreased, or negated altogether with an appropriate skill. Poison is indicated visually by purple bubbles emitted by the victim.
Remedy Antidote, Bitterbug (50%), Antidote Herbs (50%), Herbal Medicine, wait it out


Status Noxious Poison Name Noxious Poison 猛毒
Creator Capcom
Description
A stronger version of Poison that reduces health at a faster rate.
Remedy Antidote, Bitterbug (50%), Antidote Herbs (50%), Herbal Medicine, wait it out


Status Deadly Poison Name Deadly Poison 劇毒
Creator Capcom
Description
An even stronger version of Poison that reduces health at a extremely faster rate over a short period of time.
Remedy Antidote, Bitterbug (50%), Antidote Herbs (50%), Herbal Medicine, wait it out


Status Paralysis Name Paralysis 麻痺
Creator Capcom
Description
A dreaded status effect that completely immobilizes for a certain period of time, leaving the victim helpless. Upon being Paralyzed, the Hunter will fall down on their face (or remain motionless in an arched position underwater) and yellow sparks of lightning will be seen passing through their body. The duration of Paralysis can be increased, decreased, or negated altogether with an appropriate skill. There is nothing a Hunter can do but to wait for the Paralysis to wear off or for certain attacks to send them flying. This status effect had been previously known as "Stun" in the early Monster Hunter games, but has recently been referred to as "Paralysis" to better differentiate it from the ailment caused by Flash Bombs and Impact-type attacks.
Remedy Attack that causes knockback, wait it out


Status Sleep Name Sleep 睡眠
Creator Capcom
Description
Some monsters have the potential to put Hunters to Sleep. It is similar to Paralysis in that it leaves the Hunter unable to do anything. However, damage taken when asleep is greatly increased and will end the status after one hit. The duration of Sleep can be increased, decreased, or negated altogether with an appropriate skill. One does not immediately fall asleep when Sleep is inflicted. Instead, the Hunter will become drowsy allowing an Energy Drink to be used if the player is fast enough, negating the effect before falling asleep. Any non-Sleep inducing monster attack will wake up the Hunter again, and also those from fellow Hunters or Felyne/Shakalaka comrades. Leaving the area also appears to rid the Hunter of the status, but it's uncommon to receive this whilst close enough to an exit.
Remedy Get hit once (by monster or comrade), Energy Drink (MH3 and on), wait it out


Status Stun Name Stun 気絶
Creator Capcom
Description
Occurs when a Hunter receives many attacks in a short period of time. When Stunned/Knocked Out, movement, attacking and items are completely disabled. The visual indication is a ring of yellow stars spinning above the affected target's head. All monsters can inflict Stun by means of repeated physical attacks, but some can inflict it immediately by emitting an extremely bright flash of light, or another special technique. When a monster is inflicted with it by use of a Flash Bomb, it attacks randomly until the effect wears off and if inflicted by repeated Impact-type attacks (such as Hammer or Hunting Horn), the monster is completely immobilized for a short while. If a Flash Bomb is used then the monster is KO'd by an Impact hit, more stars circle around its head than normal but the effect duration is the same. The duration of the stun can be increased, decreased, or negated altogether with an appropriate skill. By rotating the analog stick used for movement in a circular motion and tapping the evasion button, the player can snap out of it on their own.
Remedy Repeatedly rotate the left analog stick and tap X (PSP) or A (Wii, Wii U, 3DS), either shake the Wii Remote or Nunchuck rapidly


Status Felvine Scented Name Felvine-Scented マタタビまみれ
Creator Capcom
Description
Makes Felynes and Melynxes in the area to attack those affected. This status effect is shown as pink smoke and can only be inflicted with an exploding Felvine Bomb. Felynes and Melynxes will dance, encircle, and then jump at anything carrying the bomb's scent. Monsters as well as Hunters can be affected. When used on the Felynes or Melynxes themselves, they become intoxicated and unable to move normally. Wears off with time.
Remedy Waiting it out


Defense Down Name Defense Down 防御力低下
Creator Capcom
Description
Some monsters may inflict a status that lowers a Hunter's Defense. Lasts for a certain period of time but can also be cured with Defense-increasing items.
Remedy Armor Seed, Armorskin, Mega Armorskin, Armor Horn, waiting it out


Status Resistance Down Name Resistance Down

Status Fatigue Name Fatigue
Creator Capcom
Description

Remedy Energy Drink, Ancient Potion


Status Tarred Name Tarred 重油
Creator Capcom
Description
The Hunter is immobilized by Tar, similar to Webbed. If the Hunter does not free themselves from the tar, it will explode and damage them.
Remedy Cleanser, rotate the analog pad or get hit by a teammate or monster


Status Frenzy Virus Name Frenzy Virus 狂竜ウイルス
Creator Capcom
Description
The Hunter becomes infected with a virus. It requires time to incubate, represented by a purple bar filling up below the Hunter's on-screen name. If the bar fills completely, the virus negates natural health recovery, meaning that the Hunter takes full damage from attacks without being able to heal back half of it. Additionally, all attacks which would cause the condition will deal extra damage while the virus is active. However, if the Hunter inflicts enough damage on a monster whilst the virus is incubating, they gain a 15% Affinity boost instead, as well as an immunity to infection for a short period of time.

It is of note that a hunter recieves damage over time whilst in a "virus pool". This damage can be quite significant, if prolonged.

Remedy While incubating, the incubation can be delayed by consuming a Nulberry. The fully incubated virus can only be cured by prolonged exposure to a Portable Steam Bomb or waiting it out.


Status Mudded Name Mudded 泥まみれ状態
Creator Capcom
Description
A status effect inflicted when mud thrown by a monster covers the Hunter and makes movement more difficult. This disables weapons and most items from being used. Repeatedly spin the analog stick to speed up recovery, or use a Cleanser. The effects are very similar to the 'Snowman' effect.
Remedy Cleanser, shake the Wii Remote / rotate the analog stick or get hit by a teammate or monster


Status Webbed Name Webbed 糸拘束状態
Creator Capcom
Description
The signature status effect of Nerscylla, Webbed immobilizes the Hunter in a sticky film which prevents movement. Nerscylla mainly uses this opportunity to strike the victim with a sleep-inducing sting or a poisoning bite attack. It is possible to break free relatively easily just by rotating the analog pad.
Remedy Cleanser, rotate the analog pad or get hit by a teammate or monster


Status Life Drain Name Life Drain 吸血
Creator Capcom
Description
A monster bites onto the Hunter and sucks their blood, gradually draining health. Multiple monsters may latch onto the Hunter at once, so they should be shaken off quickly.
Remedy Rolling


Status Snowman Name Snowman 雪だるま
Creator Capcom
Description
Getting hit by an extremely cold attack can inflict Snowman. It's usually caused by a very cold breath attack that forms a layer of ice over the Hunter's body, preventing use of any items (except a Thawing Agent or Cleanser) and attacks. Snowman can also be healed with being attacked or falling from a great height. Whilst in the Snowman status, it is possible to sprint without Stamina loss but movement speed is decreased slightly. In MH4U, sprinting DOES use stamina, but at a greatly reduced rate.
Remedy Thawing Agent (MHFU), Cleanser, shake the Wii Remote / rotate the analog stick or get physically hit by a teammate or monster


Status Blastblight Name Blastblight/ Slimeblight 爆破やられ
Creator Capcom
Description
Known as Slimeblight in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, and Blastblight in Monster Hunter 4 onwards, this ailment will cover the Hunter in slime or explosive powder. Movement isn't hindered, but Hunters affected by it suffer a damaging explosion if struck by a monster, or if the status isn't rid of quickly by rolling a few times. Even blocked attacks can inflict this status. When affected, all blocking attempts will fail so it is advised to pay attention to the status icons next to the Hunter's name.

When used against monsters, different colored effects will signify how many more hits are needed to trigger an explosion. When enough status is applied, an explosion occurs, dealing a fixed amount of damage on whatever part the triggering hit struck. The buildup then resets and the monster's tolerance increases like with the main status effects, making the next explosion a bit more difficult to trigger. Of note is that this effect is not affected by Status Attack Up, but instead the Bombardier armor skill, which makes applying the status faster but does not directly increase damage. Despite this, Blastblight is still a status, and is in turn affected by the CritStatus armor skill. The Bombardier armor skill grants a 1.2 multiplier to the status' potency. This isn't seen on the weapon's profile itself, but can be seen on the Status screen under the Hunter's raw Attack power. Obtaining the Felyne Pyro skill provides a 1.1 multiplier. The effects of Bombardier and Felyne Pyro can stack.

If cured before the gauge gets full, aforementioned status effects wane faster as well as the red portion of the health bar heals more quickly. The gauge disappears when the hunter doesn't get hit by attacks with this ailment for a certain period of time.
