I've been thinking if it's possible to make a skill damages your enemies a lot but in turn knocks you out, you know, like Megumin from KonuSuba?

You could also try the Selection Core, see if that allows you to add battlers from both the troop and the party in a custom selection.

No need for a plugin at all, this is easily done with damage coding in default makers.

Please search the forum in the section of your maker (whichever you use, any up from RMXP supports this) for a topic about how to use the damage formula or how to use damage coding or so.
The topic might have a different name depending on the maker, but it should always be one of the pinned topics.

that will list the commands you can add to the damage formula of any skill to give it additional effects beyond "damage to target". That has been used for suicidal skills for decades.

That's true, you can just use the damage formula to give the user the sleep state or something.

Ah yes, I forgot that you can add commands inside a damage formula. The formulas are a good way to start; however, a Plugin provides a bit more control. E.g. I'm not sure if commands in the formula will be invoked if the caster misses his target or the enemy dodges. So in the end, I would stick with the Plugin.

They won't. But, then, spells are generally Certain Hit. But, then, it could depend on the maker's preferences. But, then, would you want the caster to still suffer the negative effect if the spell was unsuccessful?

Overall, it's good to have in mind the possibility - using Action Sequences is definitely more powerful, but it's also a lot for some people. Learning the syntax and correctly reprogramming their skill in a sequence is considerable work and beyond some users.

So both methods are worth recommending.

Making games is the only thing I'm good at. Real talk.
So, uh... where's the RPG Maker MZ update with the MV animation system? Is there a release date confirmed?
Also I'm kind of brave enough to admit this. I... I have a crush on Sephiroth.
Please don't call me anything offensive. I'm naturally crazy.
thanks to a lot of lunatic coding... my game finally has a stun mechanic that I feel really good about. damage enemy's mental psyche (mp), and once empty, hitting with certain attacks trigger combos that can stack the damage.
Waiting for the 1.40 update before testing out my copy of MZ so that I don't end up adding unnecessary work to my plate. Meanwhile the current fourth draft for my story is taking shape, and I'm fleshing out the lore as I realize how things would make better sense here and there for the world that I'm building.

Just found out about your complications. I'm so sorry that you're going through this. I wish I could do something substantial for you, but our distance from each other makes that an impossibility. Still, if you ever need to talk or vent, I'm here.
