Status effects are displayed on the top left corner of the screen, above the player's HP bar. Positive effects are grey in color, negatives are red.
The duration and power of effects varies by item used; for example, Odd Meat gives a longer Endurance effect than Potato; and Pill, while granting a very short-lived regeneration, it is also incredibly potent compared to other healing items.
