D4 Paralysis Example

A paralyzed Winged Warrior in Disgaea 4.

Paralysis is one of the Status Ailments that can be inflicted on characters.


It's represented by white lightning bolts with black outlines above the character's head. Units affected by it are unable to move and (from Disgaea 2 onwards) their SPD is reduced to 1. They can, however, still attack.


Two Specialists deal with the Paralysis ailment:

  • Having a Medicine Man on any equipment increases a character's resistance to the Paralysis status by 1% per level. (Note: Due to a possible reference error in Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, the Social Worker increases Paralysis resistance in that game instead)
  • Having a Witch Doctor on any equipment gives a character's normal attacks a chance to inflict Paralysis by 1% per level.
