When striking enemies with elemental attacks, it's difficult for the player to know at first glance if he or she has hit a weakness or resistance, especially if they are unfamiliar with how much damage the enemy should take normally. This plugin creates popups that appear upon being hit at various elemental rates, from 200% to 101% for Weaknesses, 99% to 1% for resistance, 0% for immunity, and under that for absorption.

Critical hits also gain an extra popup effect to indicate landing a critical hit in case they've missed the extra flash that comes with one by default. This plugin helps relay information to the player in a more visible form.

Features include all (but not limited to) the following:

  • Create popups that appear in battle whenever battlers take elemental damage that results in weaknesses, resistances, immunities, or absorption.
  • Critical hits will also generate popups.
  • Popups can use images or generate bitmap text on the spot.
  • Move the popups through various means like scaling and acceleration.
  • Elemental rates can generate different popups depending on the rate.


This plugin is made for RPG Maker MZ. This will not work in other iterations of RPG Maker.

Tier 4

This plugin is a Tier 4 plugin. Place it under other plugins of lower tier value on your Plugin Manager list (ie: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5).

This is to ensure that your plugins will have the best compatibility with the rest of the VisuStella MZ Plugin library.

Extra Features

There are some extra features found if other VisuStella MZ plugins are found present in the Plugin Manager list.


Battle Core VisuStella MZ

If you decide to use front view with the VisuStella MZ Battle Core, Weakness Popups will show up for actors above the Battle Status Window. Normally, they would not appear in front view without the Battle Core because normal damage popups don't appear there either.


Plugin Parameters

Popup Settings


WeaknessPopups Params1.png

Popups are created from a similar template. These are used for Critical Hits and Elemental Rates. The Critical Hit popups will only appear once critical hits are applied in battle. Elemental Rate popups will only appear once certain damage thresholds are met through the element rate calculations.
