Name Poison / 毒
Appeared in MHF2, MHFU, MH3, MHP3, MH3U, MHFO, MH4
Description
A common Status Effect that causes a gradual loss of health over a period of time. Once the Poison has worn off, the red portion of the health bar will recover slowly. Depending on the monster and the rank of the quest, the Poison can drain the health bar at a faster rate than normal. The duration of Poison can be increased, decreased, or negated altogether with an appropriate skill. Poison is indicated visually by purple bubbles emitted by the victim.
Remedy Antidote, Bitterbug (50%), Antidote Herbs (50%), Herbal Medicine, wait it out

StatusEffect-Para

Name Paralysis / 麻痺
Appeared in MHF2, MHFU, MH3, MHP3, MH3U, MHFO, MH4
Description
A dreaded Status Effect that completely immobilizes for a certain period of time, leaving the victim helpless. Upon being Paralyzed, the Hunter will fall down on their face (or remain motionless in an arched position underwater) and yellow sparks of lightning will be seen passing through their body. The duration of Paralysis can be increased, decreased, or negated altogether with an appropriate skill. There is nothing a Hunter can do but to wait for the Paralysis to wear off or for certain attacks to send them flying. This Status Effect had been previously known as "Stun" in the early Monster Hunter games, but has recently been referred to as "Paralysis" to better differentiate it from the ailment caused by Flash Bombs and Impact-type attacks.
Remedy Attack that causes knockback, wait it out

MH3G-Status Effect Sleep
(MH3U)
Name Sleep / 睡眠
Appeared in MHF2, MHFU, MH3, MHP3, MH3U, MHFO, MH4
Description
Some monsters have the potential to put Hunters to Sleep. It is similar to Paralysis in that it leaves the Hunter unable to do anything. However, damage taken when asleep is greatly increased and will end the Status after one hit. The duration of Sleep can be increased, decreased, or negated altogether with an appropriate skill. In MH3, MHP3rd, MH3U, and MH4 one does not immediately fall asleep when Sleep is inflicted. Instead, the Hunter will become drowsy allowing an Energy Drink to be used if the player is fast enough, or a felyne comrade or Cha-Cha or Kayamba to hit you, negating the effect before falling asleep.
Remedy Get hit once (by monster or comrade), Energy Drink (MH3 and on), wait it out

StatusEffect-KO
(MH3)
Name Stun / 気絶
Appeared in MH, MHF, MHF2, MHFU, MH3, MHP3, MH3U, MHFO MH3U, MH4
Description
Occurs when a Hunter receives many attacks in a short period of time. When Stunned/Knocked Out, movement, attacking and items are completely disabled. The visual indication is a ring of yellow stars spinning above the affected character's head. All monsters can inflict Stun by means of repeated physical attacks, but some can inflict it immediately by emitting an extremely bright flash of light, or another special technique. When a monster is inflicted with it by use of a Flash Bomb, it attacks randomly until the effect wears off and if inflicted by repeated Impact-type attacks (such as Hammer or Hunting Horn), the monster is completely immobilized for a short while. If a Flash Bomb is used then the monster is KO'd by an Impact hit, more stars circle around its head than normal but the effect duration is the same. The duration of the stun can be increased, decreased, or negated altogether with an appropriate skill. By rotating the analog stick used for movement in a circular motion and tapping the evasion button, the player can snap out of it on their own.
Remedy Repeatedly rotate the left analog stick and tap X (PSP) or A (Wii), either shake the Wii Remote or Nunchuck rapidly

Appeared in MH2, MHF2, MHFU, MH3, MHP3, MH3U, MH4, MHFO
Description

Name Life Drain / 吸血
Appeared in MH3, MHP3, MH3U, MH4
Description
A monster bites onto the Hunter and sucks their blood, which gradually drains the Hunter's health. Multiple monsters may latch onto the Hunter at once, so they should be shaken off quickly. If a Giggi drains enough health, it becomes able to use a poison spit attack, and if a Sukuagiru gains enough health, it will greatly increase in size and grow limbs.
Remedy Rolling
This Status Effect is inflicted by
Giggi, Sukuagiru

Status Effect-Slimeblight MH3U Icon
(MH3U)
Status Effect-Blastblight MH4 Icon
(MH4)
(MH4U)
Name Slimeblight / Blastblight / 爆破やられ
Appeared in MH3U, MH4
Description
Known as Slimeblight in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, and Blastblight in Monster Hunter 4 onwards, this ailment will cover the Hunter in slime. Movement isn't hindered, but Hunters affected by Slime suffer a damaging explosion if struck by a monster, or if the slime isn't rid of quickly by rolling a few times. Even blocked attacks can inflict this Status. When affected, all blocking attempts will fail so it is advised to pay attention to the Status icons next to the Hunter's name.

When used against monsters, different colored slime effects will signify how many more hits are needed to trigger an explosion. When the slime explodes, a fixed amount of damage is caused, oftentimes staggering the monster. Of note is that this effect is not affected by Status Attack Up, but instead the Bombardier armor skill.

The Bombardier armor skill grants a 1.2 multiplier to the Status' potency. This isn't seen on the weapon's profile itself, but can be seen on the Status screen under the Hunter's raw Attack power. Obtaining the Felyne Pyro skill provides a 1.1 multiplier. The effects of Bombardier and Felyne Pyro can stack.

Remedy Rolling, Deodorant
This Status Effect is inflicted by
Brachydios, Congalala, Crimson Fatalis, Emerald Congalala, Teostra, Tigrex Rare Species
Status Effect-Frenzy Virus Eye MH4 Icon
(Eye Icon)
Status Effect-Frenzy Virus 01 MH4 Icon

Status Effect-Frenzy Virus 02 MH4 Icon

Status Effect-Frenzy Virus 03 MH4 Icon
Name Frenzy Virus / 狂竜ウイルス
Appeared in MH4
Description
The Hunter becomes infected with a virus. It requires time to incubate, represented by a purple bar filling up below the Hunter's on-screen name. If the bar fills completely, the virus negates natural health recovery, meaning that the Hunter takes full damage from attacks without being able to heal back half of it. However, if the Hunter inflicts enough damage on a monster whilst the virus is incubating, they gain a 10% Affinity boost instead, as well as an immunity to infection for a short period of time.
Remedy While incubating, the incubation can be delayed by consuming a Nulberry. There is no cure for the virus when it is fully incubated, and its effects can only be waited out.
This Status Effect is inflicted by
Gore Magala, Shagaru Magara, any Infected Monster

Elemental Effects

From Monster Hunter 3 onward, certain monster attacks can inflict Hunters with Status Effects known collectively as Blights. The higher the Element Resistance on your armor against the corresponding Element, the less likely the Blight will be inflicted upon being hit. A low Element Resistance means the Blight effect will be more severe and proportionally more damage will be received from the attack. They can all be negated with the skill Blightproof. Shakalakas or Felyne Comrades cannot be affected by Blights.
