Confusion is a recurring negative status effect in Grandia. It is one of the few status effects that have appeared in every game in the main series to date. Players cannot control characters inflicted with Confusion. Although the actions that confused units take vary between games, the most common action is that the character will attack their own allies at random with physical attacks.
Confusion is one of the few status ailments that does not continue after battle. Common ways of removing Confusion include using Smelling Salts, casting the magic Halvah and can be removed indirectly when attacked by a physical attack.
