Stats or Statistics are an important game mechanic in Trials of Mana.

Like most role-playing games, statistics in Trials of Mana are tied to player character's performance in various tasks and contribute to making it distinguishable from other player characters. There a two main stat categories in the game : classic ones that cannot be influenced directly by the player and customizable ones. The former can vary by the current level the character is at and the type of equipment is wearing. The latter are to be modified by the player depending on the game version. The number of stats for each category also depend on the game version.

2D version[]

There are four classic stats and six customizable stats in the 2D version of Trials of Mana. Here is a rundown of what each stat is monitoring:

Classic Stats

  • Attack or ATK controls the amount of physical damage the character can inflict.
  • Defense or DEF controls the amount of damage the character can defend against physical attacks.
  • Evade or EVD (Evade Rate in the fan translation) controls how often your character can dodge enemies' physical attacks.
  • Magic Defense or MGC DEF (Magic Def. in the fan translation) controls the amount of damage the character can defend against magical attacks that are influenced by the Intellect stat mentioned below.

Customizable Stats

  • Strength or STR influences the attack stat mentioned above.
  • Dexterity or DEX (Agility in the fan translation) influences the evade stat mentioned above, the hit rate of the character's physical attacks and the speed of trap roulette in chests (the higher the Dexterity stat, the slower the wheel). It also affects the power of throwing moves like Silver Dart, trap moves like Mines and all of the Nightblade's new moves. Note that items that emulate those moves are also affected.
  • Stamina or STA (Vitality in the fan translation) influences the defense stat mentioned above as well as HP.
  • Intellect or INT (Intelligence in the fan translation) influences the magic defense stat mentioned above, MP growth as well as most of the offensive magic power (All of Angela's moves except Lumina based ones and Annihilate, Hawkeye's ninja moves and Fetid Breath. Note that items that emulate those moves are also affected.
  • Spirit or SPRT (Piety or PIE in the japanese version) influences a hidden spirit magic defense stat, MP growth as well as some offensive and most supporting magic power (lumina spells, healing light, all summoning moves). Note that items that emulate those moves are also affected.
  • Luck or LUCK influences many things in the game. It affects the rate of critical hits of physical attacks, how many "OK" icons that show up during trap roulettes, the rate the player get the rarer item drops from enemies. Additionally, the higher a character's Luck stat is, the less likely they are targeted by enemies's single target magic and special moves. This also rings true with getting hit with opponent's counter attacks when they are hit with a character's magic or tech. Finally, having high luck can prevent a character from dying from an enemy attack while remaining a 1 HP.

Whenever a player character levels up in the original 2D version of Trials of Mana, a pop-up ring menu is brought up prompting the player to choose which costumizable stat they would like to raise up a point. The player is effectively forced to choose and cannot quit the menu until a stat to upgrade is chosen. Each character class has stat caps that cannot be overlapped upon reaching it unless said character changes class.
