Almost A Hero Wiki

Curses are negative effects created by Gog City to mock your Charms and damage you. They affect Cursed Gates.

Before accessing a Cursed Gate you'll see the active curses: you can pick whichever Cursed Gate is available and when you beat it the Active Curses will change.

Dispelling Curses[]

Curses become worse the longer the Cursed Gate is (they 'level up' during the fight). To reduce their negative effects the player must fulfill their dispel condition.

Fulfilling the dispel condition removes one level from that curse, but it will start to level up again immediately, even if its level is reduced to zero.


These curses can be found by themselves or in combination with other curses:
