Status menu

The status menu from the second game, showing Tomba's current status.

Status ailment is a state when by doing something in the game, or being attacked by an enemy, Tomba's status may suffer a change that either be helping, hindering or both.

Sometimes status ailments are required to gain access to hidden areas; for example, laughing opens the laughing doors and crying opens the crying doors. They also have a big tendency to cause problems, as some of them disables a game mechanic.

Different types of ailments

Laughing

Laughing Tomba

Caused by eating some mushrooms in Tomba! or eating a laughing fruit in Tomba! 2. When laughing, Tomba cannot use the weapon to stun foes; he will laugh instead.

This status can be cured with a Healing Mushroom or the Ordinary Mushroom. This is found in both games.

Crying

Crying Tomba

Caused by eating some mushrooms in Tomba! or a crying fruit in Tomba! 2. When crying, Tomba cannot use the weapon to stun foes; he will start running and whimpering instead.

This status can be cured with a Healing Mushroom or the Ordinary Mushroom. This is found in both games.

Mini/Tiny

Caused by going through the Minitta Machine or using the Minitta Mushroom. When mini, Tomba cannot attack any enemies.

This status can be cured by reversing the beginning process or eating the Minitta Mushroom again. This is only found in the second game.

Ghost

Caused by being attacked by a Ghost Pig. When being a ghost, Tomba cannot use a weapon to stun foes; he also cannot touch objects such as laughing/crying fruits or health fruits, he cannot wear any outfits, and all enemies will ignore him.

This status can be cured by eating the Clear Fruit or biting a Ghost Pig. This is only found in the second game.

Taboo

Psychic Fish Tomba

In this ailment, Tomba's speed will increase as if he is Animal Dashing all the time.

In the first game, this can be gained by using the blue powder on one of the flowers, then throwing it at a Red Flower to make a brown edible mushroom (taboo item). In the second game, it can be caused by eating a Taboo Fruit or using the Taboo Gate.

This status can be cured by taking damage or eating the Taboo Fruit again.

Oil-Smeared

Caused by getting attacked by a Toradako, one of the oil-spitting enemies in Ranch Summit. When Tomba is covered in oil, he will be burned when coming into contact with fire sources, like the torches hanging around the area and by using the Fire Hammer or Torch Hammer.

In order to remove this ailment, Tomba must eat a Steak Sandwich, use the Toradako Oil Remover, or take a bath in the spa in Ranch Summit. If the player is quick, he/she can clear this status ailment by using the Fire Hammer/Torch Hammer directly after being covered by oil to avoid taking damage from contact with fire.
