Status Effects in Demon's Souls and Demon's Souls Remake are special conditions that apply to the player character, and sometime enemies. Not all Demon's Souls Status Effects are detrimental to the player, with some being instead the result of Buffs or other beneficial states. You can find how to cure damaging status effects below.
How do you know when a status effect affects you or an enemy?
Unlike in the Dark Souls titles, no status bar appears when you are being afflicted with a status affect. However, all Status Effects information is displayed under the player character's health bar, on the top left of the screen. On the other hand, enemies are covered by a notable halo when under Status Effects.
