Mini (ミニマム, Minimamu), also known as Size and Small, is a status ailment that shrinks the target. While in Mini status, a player is still able to cast magic, but their physical power drops dramatically, and all attacks do only a single point of damage. Their physical Defense also drops.
Mini causes the target to shrink, and their physical attack power is reduced significantly. There is a chance of recovery at the end of each turn and does not last after battle. It can be cured by Basuna at level 4 or higher. In the NES version, Mini, was essentially an Instant-Kill spell when used on enemies.
The Mini status can be inflicted from the eponymous spell. The party needs to be in Mini status to access some of the dungeons in the game, and a town.
Any character inflicted with the Mini status will automatically have their Attack Power be reduced to 1, therefore never doing more than 1 damage to the enemy.
