Called Petr in battle, after a few turns the affected character is turned to stone and is unable to act. Can be removed with the Soft item. The weapons Break Blade, Medusa Arrow, and Omnirod inflicts this status, as well as the spell Break.
Rather than turning into stone after a period of time, the unit will turn to stone after being successfully hit by an attack that induces Gradual Petrify three times.
Called Slow-Numb, characters with this condition are Petrified after 60 seconds.

Called Petrifying, characters with this condition are Petrified when the counter reaches 0, roughly after 13.3 seconds.
Gradual Petrify, when inflicted on a character, causes a countdown meter of 10 to appear above the character's head. When the meter reaches zero, the unit is Petrified. Gradual Petrify can be healed by using the Soft item on the afflicted unit, or it can be prevented altogether by equipping the Jelly ability.
Gradual Petrification appears as an effect of the "Calcifying Mist" ability used by Notorious Monster Peistes in the Wings of the Goddess expansion. Afflicted players have their movement speed slowed down during the countdown until fully petrified.
Petrify slowly turns a character to stone in 10 counts, similar to how Condemned slowly kills them. As the timer runs down, the afflicted unit's resistance to physical attacks gradually increases, rendering them almost immune to such attacks when the countdown reaches 1. It can be cured with Esuna, but once the timer runs out and the character turns to Stone, they can only be cured by Stona, a Gold Needle, or a Remedy (once a character has acquired the appropriate Remedy Lore license).
