  • Enemies can be frozen and burn at the same time.
  • Enemies that are shattered while frozen will often skip their usual 'on-death' effect, such as exploding, dropping pools of goop or spawning more enemies.
  • Rats will not appear to be visually tinted when poisoned other than emanating green bubbles.

These are status effects that can be applied to enemies, but have no purpose outside of cosmetic changes.
