Megami Tensei Wiki

Yukari Takeba feeling "Tired" in battle.

This is a list of Status Changes in Persona 3, FES, Portable and Persona 3 Reload.

Some of the status changes listed are unlike status changes in other Shin Megami Tensei games. The different status changes are divided into Conditions, which affect combat and daily life, and Status Effects, which are primarily combat related. A character is always in one of the four conditions, and can be affected by a status effect at the same time.


Conditions only appear in Persona 3, FES and Portable, and are not applicable in Persona 3 Reload.

Condition Remarks
Great This condition marks that a character is performing above normal.
It can be obtained by napping in class on certain days, sleeping early at night, using the restroom while in Good condition or getting the 10,000 yen fortune at the shrine. A character who is doing Great will have higher accuracy, an increased critical rate and will take longer to become Tired.

In Persona 3 FES, the protagonist can pray at the shrine and may get a larger Academics stat boost if he is in Great condition. Characters other than the protagonist are in "Great" condition only on fixed days, most commonly the first day they join the party.

Good This is the default condition.
All properties are normal while in Good condition.
Tired This condition marks that a character is performing below average.
A character becomes tired after Full Moon Operations or by participating in too many battles. The protagonist can become Tired if they study without sleeping too many times in a row or by drawing the "very worst luck" fortune at the shrine. While Tired, a character is more likely to miss, takes more damage, has trouble recovering when knocked down and will leave the party if taken to the first floor of Tartarus. The protagonist can visit Mr. Edogawa to receive a bonus to Courage. This condition can be cured by sleeping earlier or randomly by using the bathroom or, in P3P, by using a Yawn-B-Gone. Characters other than the protagonist will recover in a day or two of not visiting Tartarus. Tired characters won't want to go to Tartarus.
Sick This is the lowest condition.
A Sick character takes a longer time to recover from being knocked down, will be more susceptible to status changes and the protagonist cannot study at night. Also all stats, attacks and spell effects are lowered significantly. They can still visit Mr. Edogawa during the day. This status changes to Good if the character sleeps early. Characters other than the protagonist will return to Good after roughly a week of not visiting Tartarus. Sick characters can still go to Tartarus in Sick condition, but they will get tired fast.
  • When the protagonist is tired, they will receive a bonus to Courage if they visit the nurse's office when Tired or Sick. This action takes no time whatsoever in-game, so players should take advantage of this to increase their Courage more quickly.
  • In Persona 3, characters do not get tired on days before the full-moon and in FES, if a party member gets tired on the day before the full-moon, they will not return home after returning to the entrance of Tartarus.
