Description Temporarily decreases enemy's attack power.

Weaken (ウィーク "Weak"?) is a 4th-level Red Element. After assisting the sailors on the S.S. Invincible defeat the Ghost Ship, Weaken, and several other strong elements, Traps, Buffs and Debuffs are purchasable from the Demi-human merchants in Guldove and Marbule. Specifically, Weaken minimizes a single opponent's Attack, regardless of level allocation. Because of this, it is wasteful to set NWeaken and other Buff/Debuff Elements any higher than the level 1 allocation spot. Although this will depict the Element as being -3, no quality difference is depicted; the character with Weaken cast on them will still receive the same impediments for several turns. As the counterpart to Strengthen, Weaken sells for 430 G. Alternatively, a chest in Mount Pyre contains a free Weaken.

In battle, Opah Fish, Bubba Dingo, WillO'Wisp, and Cat Burglar cast Weaken as level 2 Elements (Weaken -2), while Gobledygook cast it as level 5 Elements (Weaken +1). Commonly, Fire Dragon and TutanShaman drop this Element after battles, the latter or which casts Weaken as a 4th level Element in battles.


Description[edit | edit source]

A downward cyclone of yellow energy spins down the target in a clockwise direction. Rising upwards through the vortex is a faint white-colored fog.

Name Origin[edit | edit source]

Physical weakness would make attacking very difficult, or lower the potential damage.
