Ring Abnormalities are afflictions caused by enemies that solely affect a character's Judgment Ring. It can usually be caused by enemy attack.

In Shadow Hearts: From the New World, bosses can summon multiple Ring Abnormalities on an enemy. These can be cured by items such as Phoenix Tail or Daphne Fruit, or spells such as Heal or Arc Heal.
