Added DiffLines:

* Zig-zagged in ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' with regards to [[StandardStatusEffects the Poison and Toxic status effects]]: although resistance to both is a single stat, they each have a separate buildup meter, so you can be afflicted by ''[[FromBadToWorse both at once]]''. However, there are different ''forms'' of Poison and Toxic, with varying duration and rates of damage, that can only be applied one at a time, favoring the one you already have. Some player take advantage of this while going through [[VideoGame/DarkSoulsI Blighttown]], intentionally using [[DungFu Dung Pies]] [[ViolationOfCommonSense to inflict Toxic on themselves so they'll be immune to Toxic from Blowdart Snipers]] (which is more than three times as damaging).

* In the [[{{TabletopGame/Pokemon}} ''Pokémon'' TCG]], the status conditions Sleep, Paralysis, and Confusion are mutually exclusive because each one is indicated by rotating the affected Pokémon card at a specific angle. On the other hand, Burn and Poison conditions are indicated by placing specific tokens on the card, and are therefore ''not'' mutually exclusive.

* In ''{{Pokemon}}'', any given Pokemon can only be under one of the major status effects (Sleep, Paralysis, Burn, Freeze, Poison) at a time. They can still be affected by secondary status effects like Confusion or Attraction, but a burnt Pokemon can't be paralyzed, and a poisoned Pokemon can't be frozen. In fact, in high level ''Pokemon'' players it consider normal to intentionally inflict one's own Pokemon a status that isn't much of a bother (or with some special abilities, a benefit) purely to prevent more crippling ones: for example, a Pokemon with the "Guts" ability may be given a Flame Orb (which burns the holder) to trigger the ability while also rendering them immune to Paralysis or Sleep.

* In ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII'', [[spoiler:The Hero]] is already under the effect of a curse, which is why the spell on the castle didn't effect him. In an aversion of GameplayAndStorySegregation, he cannot be placed under the Curse status effect in battle, either.

* Inverted in the ''VideoGame/WarioLand'' games, where CollisionDamage with nearly every enemy causes Wario to gain a particular condition that's necessary to progress (turning into a balloon, a vampire, a spring, flattened, on fire...) but taking damage resets you to your normal form.
