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. The Mini status is usually inflicted by the eponymous spell.
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, is essentially an Instant Death spell when used on enemies.
The Mini status disables the Aim, Focus, Kick, Brace, Twincast, Bluff, Cry, Cover, Analyze, Throw, and Regen commands. Additionally, attack is set to 1, defense and evade are set to 0, and anyone attacking a target with Mini status has attack doubled. When afflicted by Mini, the character will deal only 1 point of damage. In the Advance remake, this will disable monster spells if used on a monster.
The Mini status returns as a status effect in the sequel of Final Fantasy IV, and it functions the same way as its predecessor.

The formula for how Mini works is as follows:
- Defense = 0, Evade% = Evade% * 2
Any character afflicted with the Mini status will automatically have their Attack Power reduced to 1, therefore never doing more than 1 damage to the enemy. Unlike most other statuses, Mini is not removed when a character is KOed. The enemy Hungry can eat a character in Mini status.

Non-Final Fantasy AppearancesEdit
The spell Mini from Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep inflicts the Mini status upon the target, which makes them smaller and hinders their attacking strength. In addition, the miniaturized targets can be simply stepped on by the player to inflict easy damage.
