Unlike in Persona 3, Persona 4 has abolished status conditions when traversing the Midnight Channel. Characters do not get Tired and several status conditions have also been removed. In Persona 4 Golden Confusion has been renamed to Panic but remains the same in effect.
In addition, the items "Hiranya" and "Amrita Soda" cure all ailments except for Dizzy. The skills "Amrita" and "Salvation" have the same effect as an Amrita Soda, except Salvation also restores all HP to all allies.
