Negative Status Attacks
| This page is in need of content.
Several monsters in the kingdom have attacks, or responses to attacks, which can confer undesirable effects upon you.
Regular Negative Status Effects
These, unlike the effects from Dreadsylvania, all can be removed with a soak in the hot tub. Originally "removed by hot tub" was one definitive way to tell negative effects from positive ones. The Naughty Sorceress removes all positive effects at the start of that fight, but not negative ones. Most effects, positive or negative and all of these attack effects, can be removed with soft green echo eyedrop antidotes.
There are certain pieces of equipment which can prevent the regular effects from being inflicted 75% of the time:
- ancient stone head
- Belt of Loathing
- crusty hula hoop
- giant pinky ring
- gold wedding ring
- hazmat helmet
- meteorite guard
Equipping multiple sources of protection will not increase their effect; having a giant pinky ring and an ancient stone head equipped, for example, will still only block 75% of status attack.
When one of these items blocks a negative effect, one of these messages will be displayed:
- You have an intense feeling of dread, but it quickly passes.
- There's a tingling in your <skull>, but the feeling passes.
- You get a little queasy, but the feeling quickly passes.
The Ancient medicinal herbs prevent all negative status effects 100% of the time.
The bezoar ring prevents all poison effects 100% of the time.
Dreadsylvania Status Effects
The effects named "Curse of <Attribute>" can be blocked with the Protects-Your-Junk accessory. When the curse is blocked the following is shown:
- Your underwear shifts uncomfortably, preventing the curse from taking hold.

Positive Status Effects
There are a few attacks that are positive, and are listed here for inclusiveness only. Unlike the effects listed above, they cannot be removed with all-purpose cleaner. (Some people consider the -ML of Fearless a negative attribute, but the game does not.)
