The following sword/shield icons represent status effects. These status effects temporarily change the STR/DEF of the Medals in your Keyblade based on their attributes. These effects have 3 tiers, and the tier number will be displayed on the icon. After the Union cross update, The tier limit was released allowing for infinite tier boosts.
The other icons represent status ailments.
