Poison is a staple Status Ailment in RPGs, and appears in all Nippon Ichi games. A poisoned character suffers damage every turn. The amount of damage taken is affected by the Hit Point total of the character, and simply waiting until the status wears off can leave the character vulnerable to attacks. Characters who expire from Poison, whether inflicted by an enemy or an ally, do not count as Ally Kills. Also, should an enemy be defeated by poison, no Experience is awarded to anyone for the kill.
A character inflicted with poison will have little purple bubbles above their head.
Two Specialists deal with the Poison ailment. These specialists are present in all Disgaea games.
- An Alchemist increases the chance that poison will be inflicted when a normal attack hits against a target.
- A Pharmacist decreases the chance a character will be inflicted with poison, and also decreases the number of turns that the character will spend poisoned.
