The following is a list of status effects found in Final Fantasy IV -Interlude-. The status description that is displayed during battle is the one that has the greatest priority. The list here starts with the status that has the greatest priority and continues with the ones with the least priority unless otherwise specified, a player cannot inflict a status with a lower priority on a target that has a status of higher priority.

For example, Pig cannot be inflicted on a target that has Toad status because of the status priority. However, Toad can be inflicted on a target that has the Pig status.
