Resistance

Characters and enemies can have different resistances to elemental and physical damage. There are further ways to increase or decrease these resistances. The resistance attribute is denoted by RES in-game. Its formula is:

RES Percentage

Resistance Multiplier vs. RES%

The Resistance multiplier varies nonlinearly with the RES percentage. Depending on the value of in the interval below, the corresponding is as follows:[1]

Formula Interval

RES < 0

0 ≤ RES < 0.75

RES ≥ 0.75

For example, an enemy with 10% RES (0.1) will have a RES multiplier (meaning that damage is reduced). If one swirls with the Viridescent Venerer set to reduce resistance by 40%, then the RES (-0.3) will have a RES multiplier (meaning that damage is amplified).

In general, since the RES multiplier decreases with RES percentage, the lower the target's RES percentage, the more damage one can do to it.

Resistance Types

There are 8 types of resistances corresponding to the 7 Elements and Physical damage.

Specific details for the abilities, items, reactions, and other effects that modify a character's or enemy's resistance are listed on these separate pages.

These are the currently known resistance values of each enemy.[1][2] Note that in the "Other" column, when +x% or -x% is used, that is being added to the base resistance. For example, a Pyro Whopperflower will have 35+40=75% Pyro RES when not stunned and 75-25=50% Pyro RES when stunned.
