Mysteriosity (Japanese: ふしぎ mysteriosity) is a mechanic present in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity that affects the player's adventures in mystery dungeons. After defeating the final boss of the main story, dungeons will begin to have a mysteriosity rating, indicated by a number next to the dungeon's name ranging from 1 to 5. The higher the number, the greater the likelihood of a mysterious distortion (Japanese: ふしぎな ひずみ mysterious distortion) occurring in the dungeon. Some of them benefit the player, while others make the dungeon harder.

Additionally, dungeons with mysteriosity can also be affected by strange power (Japanese: ふしぎな ちから mysterious force), which warps the player's team when entering the next floor.
