Final Fantasy VIII

Poison is a recurring element in the Final Fantasy series. It is primarily featured in Final Fantasy II, Final Fantasy VI, and Final Fantasy VIII. Often, attacks with the Poison affinity have a chance of inflicting the status ailment of the same name.

Recurring themes

Star Pendant nulls all poison.


Equipment

In general, any equipment that protects the wearer against the Poison status (such as the Star Pendant) also protects from the Poison element. In Final Fantasy II, Gold Equipment protected the user from Poison. Any weapons with the word Poison or Venom in the name (such as Venom Axe) causes Poison-elemental damage.

Bioblaster is an attack that uses poison.


Spells

Poison is a spell in its own right, though it usually only inflicts the status effect. Bio is a Poison-elemental damaging spell, and its upgrades are Biora and Bioga. A few games include Scourge, which often damages and inflicts the Poison debuff. In Final Fantasy II, Scourge (and thus the Poison element) is very effective against Lightning-elemental entities.

Cúchulainn, the Esper of poison.


Summons

Poison has only two summons to its name. Doomtrain appears in Final Fantasy VIII and attacks with Runaway Train. The world of Ivalice features an Esper with the affinity of Poison, fittingly called Cúchulainn, the Impure.
