Attribute Down is a harmful status effect that lowers an attribute until it wears off or is removed. Afflicted characters can be affected by one attribute down effect per monster ability. The amount the ability is lowered by is determined by the strength of the effect that granted it, and how much you resist it. Attribute Down effects are almost always of the element that is strong vs the ability it lowers. E.G. Bubble Shower is a water-based crab ability that lowers STR; water is strong against fire (the element associated with STR).
