Toad (トード Tōdo), also known as Frog, is a recurring status effect in the Final Fantasy series. Characters inflicted with the ailment have their attack power reduced to it's base amount. Spell casting character affected cannot cast any spells other than Toad. Toad can be cured by casting Toad on an afflicted character or by using the Maiden's Kiss item.




Final Fantasy II

Any units turned into a Toad will have their Accuracy greatly reduced, making them miss more often, and are unable to cast magic. This status lasts after battle until cured with a Maiden's Kiss, the spell Esuna at level 4 or higher, or the spell Toad.

Final Fantasy III

The status effect appears again, once more preventing the use of magic and drastically decreasing a character's Attack and Defense. The decrease causes all attacks to be 1, or 0. The ailment can only be cured with a Maiden's Kiss, Esuna, or another Toad spell.

Final Fantasy IV

A party member with the Toad ailment will lose the ability to cast magic and will become weakened in Attack and Defense stats. Cures for the status effect are a Maiden's Kiss, Remedy, Esuna, or the Toad spell.

Final Fantasy V

Toad-inflicted characters can't cast spells and their attack is pitiful - but may also inflict Toad on their target.

Note that Toad inflicted characters have different sprites for the battle screen and the field map.

Final Fantasy VII

In addition to the spell, an enemy skill called Frog Song causes the status along with Sleep. The Toad status is the worst of the transformation statuses in the game, preventing all commands except Attack, Item (including W-Item), and the spell Toad if the player has it equipped. It also decreases the attack power of that character by 1/4 of their base damage.
