These are the status changes in Persona 5. They can be healed with skills or items. Generally, in battle, the status conditions are healed after 3 turns. If the battle ends, all ailments are automatically healed. As such, it is recommended to only cure them during long and hard battles.

All status conditions prevent the affected to be a recipient of Baton Pass.

Certain status conditions can be inflicted on enemies in Mementos during certain special weather. This only occurs upon entering combat.

In Persona 5 Royal, Technical damage from certain ailments can be performed by more elements. Most of these weaknesses in particular can only be unlocked by reading the book "Knowing the Heart." Additionally, Technical damage now has the chance of downing enemies by default.
