During the game, if you make certain choices, you'll get various traits to your character. Once you get a certain trait, it will stay until the end of that playthrough.
Traits can change certain lines of dialogue, interactions, and battles. Some traits affect gameplay more so than others.
|Short||Character creation||Changes certain lines of dialogue.|
|Chubby||Character creation||Initial bonus to HP and SP. Changes certain lines of dialogue. You will also not be able to equip the Bunny Suit.|

When this occurs, a random food or drink item in the Item menu will be consumed automatically. You will also eat your party member's food when eating at food carts, cafes, and restaurants.|

|Weak Stomach||Talking to your mother before leaving Japan||This trait will randomly inflict the Stomachache status effect after eating certain restaurant or street foods.|
|Sickly||Talking to your mother before leaving Japan||This trait causes a hidden Sickness Gauge to gradually rise when walking around town, eventually resulting in collapse, which will waste a day or result in a Game Over if you're the only person in your party or Iggy's FP is less than 10.
The gauge can be lowered by getting an examination at a hospital, staying at an inn, using Cold Medicine, or using a skill. If passing out is imminent, your character will cough and complain as a warning, and use of the Radio without doing anything will see a different response.
If you have a party member with 10 or more FP, you will wake up in the inn and get an item after passing out. Item is dependent on character.
