Super Bullet Break: Icons Guide v0.9

A list of every most status effects and enemy actions in the game. (A few bullet-specific buffs are missing until I encounter them in-game.) Hopefully, it will eventually become a complete glossary.
I have also included notable characteristics of each icon, such as what the number beside the icons mean, how long the effect lasts, and the order of certain effects when they happen simultaneously.

 

Preface

Since there is no complete in-game glossary of Status Effect and Enemy Action, this is my personal compilation of all the icons I have encountered and what they mean.

Special, Less Intuitive Icons

You’re probably here because of a few specific icons that are never explained in-game.
Here are the ones I was initially frustrated or confused by.

Summon

Used by: Enemies

Effect: Summon a number of enemies based on the number to its right.

Antibody

Used by: Player and Enemies

Player’s Effect: Negates Debuffs being applied. (Stacks) Each stack is consumed to negate one debuff.
Enemy’s Effect: Negates Debuffs being applied. (Stacks) Each stack is consumed to negate one debuff.

Note: Does not Cure debuffs that were applied before Antibody.

Blind

Used by: Enemies

Effect: Covers most of your hand in ink and prevents you from seeing, hearing, and reading about your bullets. (Stacks) Each stack extends its duration.

Note: A bit of the bottom is still visible, letting you see your bullets’ cartridges.

Cost Up

Used by: Enemies

Effect: Increases the Cost of all bullets by the amount indicated in the icon. (Stacks) Each stack extends its duration.

Melt Shield

Used by: Enemies

Counter

Used by: Enemies

Note: There appears to be two versions of Counter (25% and 33%) but further testing is required to be sure. Counter damage is inflicted before your bullet’s other effects such as Shield, Armor, and Heal.

Dispel

Used by: Player and Enemies

Player’s Effect: Removes one type of Buff from target.
Enemy’s Effect: Removes one type of Buff from target.

Note: It is impossible to tell what Buffs will be removed based on the icon alone. It also does not seem to work on bosses.
It may remove one of the following: Shield, Armor, Attack Buff, etc.
It would most likely be easier to ask the developers directly.

Basic Icons

Attack

Shield
