The majority of the Status Ailments in Crisis Core can be cured with a Remedy potion, which can be purchased at the Shinra Shop for 200 Gil a bottle. While in battle, use the R2 button to select the item, and then press B to instantly cure your status change. The debuffs are first introduced in a Chapter 1 email titled Status Ailments, which you receive after talking to Kunsel in the SOLDIER Briefing room. Although the Crisis Core tutorial only tells you about five basic Status Ailments, you will eventually have to face off against the game-ending Death ailment as you progress throughout the main story. Below is a list of every Status Ailment in Crisis Core FF 7 and how you can cure them.

The easiest method to stop Status Ailments is to stock up on Remedy potions from the Final Fantasy Crisis Core Shops. They can be accessed at any time in the menu, simply press start and select the Shops tab. Some missions will have enemies who only inflict status ailments, so you will want to equip the right accessories to block the specific debuff from ruining your battles.
