- "Will take big fire damage and decrease max HP every turn. Effect removed by water or ice damage."
- ―Scorch's hover-over tip, Epic Battle Fantasy 5
Scorch deals magical Fire-elemental damage at the end of the players' turn equal to twice Burn's damage (ie. MaxHP * Hit2HP * 0.0014 * Scorch strength), and also debuffs their max HP by 10%. Like all other damaging statuses, Scorch's damage is reduced on Easy and Zero difficulties.
Other than through standard cleansing spells and food, Scorch will also be removed if the affected player is hit by a Water or Ice-elemental attack, or by an attack that inflicts Chill or Wet (regardless of whether the status is actually applied).
