Virus, sometimes called Disease or Pointless, is a negative status effect appearing in various games. It is normally not visible during a fight except by checking a character's status in a menu during the fight.

Pointless prohibits a character from earning experience and Ability Points. It can be cured with Holy Water.
Virus (divided into Plague or Disease) appears in Final Fantasy XI; It inhibits the regeneration of HP and MP through Healing. Players can still gain some HP and MP through Cures, Regen, and Refresh, as well as items that grant similar bonuses, however. The variation effect "Plague" instead slowly saps MP and TP until it wears off. Both status effects can be removed by casting Viruna on the inflicted.
Disease prohibits the use of healing items and magicks on a character. It does this in an odd way, by turning a character's Current HP into their new Maximum HP. If a player is not careful, they will find that some of their characters only have 1/1 HP. Disease is cured with a Vaccine, the White Magicks Cleanse and Regen, or a Remedy, provided the character has the license, Remedy Lore 3. Characters who are currently in Bubble status will be immune to Disease. A KO'd character with Disease status will have only 1 HP if he/she was revived.
