Burn is a status ailment found in the Mario & Luigi series and Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. If a frozen character is burned, both status ailments are negated.

History[edit]

Mario & Luigi series[edit]

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga[edit]

Using his Fire Bros. attack, Mario can sometimes Burn enemies, making them lose some HP every turn, similar to Poison. A miniature flame appears to be floating above the enemy, indicating the condition.

Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time[edit]

The Burn status ailment returned in this game with a more dire consequence: if a character is burned, that character loses 8 HP every turn and is not be able to attack or dodge, much as a combination of the Poison and Dizzy status ailment. Burn is indicated with the character visibly on fire. The three ways to cure a burn are using a Refreshing Herb, waiting until it wears off, or ending the battle by defeating the enemies with the unaffected character. The Blazing Shroobs are the only enemies to give the Mario Bros. this status effect.

Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story[edit]

The Burn status returns in this game with the same effect as in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. However, only two enemies/bosses can cause the burn status: Calorite and Bowser . Bowser can also cause the Burn status ailment to enemies by using his fiery breath. When any enemies (or bosses) are on fire, their idle animation goes much faster.

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team[edit]

The Burn status returns once again in this game with the same effect as in Partners in Time. Some fire-breathing enemies may cause this status to Mario and Luigi. There is also a more harmful "burn" status effect called "Char". The victim of "burn" takes 10 damage at a time and the victim of "char" takes 30 damage at a time.

Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam[edit]

The Burn status returns once again from with the same effect in the past three games. However the victim of "burn" will take 10 damage (20 damage on an enemy) and the victim of "char" will take 30 damage, just like in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team.

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door[edit]

In this game, Burns again behave much the same way as Poison, that is, the character or enemy burned will lose one HP every turn for a number of turns. However, a burn usually won't last as long as poison. Burn is indicated by a small flame at the afflicted's feet. It can be cured by some random stage effects that involve water or simply after a few turns.

Vivian is capable of inflicting Burns on enemies.
