Fear is a status ailment found in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. If a party member has been stricken with Fear, they begin to shiver. When the party member is afraid, a party member's attack and defense is cut in half, meaning they deal only half damage to enemies and receive approximately fifty percent more damage from enemy attacks. A Fearless Pin grants the equipped character immunity to Fear attacks.
A bloating heart will appear above a party member when an enemy's fear-inducing attack is successful, with the exception on few attacks like Sand Storm and Poundette's "Fear Hammer." An exclamation mark will appear above certain enemies when a Fright Bomb item is used on or when Bowser's Terrorize attack is used successfully.
