Fishing is a recurring mini game/side activity which is found in both Dark Cloud and Dark Cloud 2. Players are able to catch fish, although the purposes of this vary in each game. When starting out, a Fishing Rod and Bait are needed in order to catch Fish.

Dark CloudEdit

Fish can be caught from the water in the first 5 villages [Clarify]. The fishing activity has little relation to the main story. FP (Fishing Points) are accumulated as fish are caught, and may be exchanged for various items such as Weapons and Attachments. The amount of FP gained when a fish is caught depends on fish type and size.

FP ExchangeEdit

FP (Fishing Points) can be exchanged for the following items:

Recovery items:

Attachments:

Gems:

Dark Cloud 2Edit

Fishing is a prominent mechanic in the overall gameplay and storyline of Dark Cloud 2. Fishing can done in many places throughout the game world and may also be used to unlock Medals on certain Floor Episodes within dungeons. The fish which are caught have a number of possible uses. It is possible to upgrade the Fishing Rod's stats by upgrading it with the FP's (Fishing Points) earned when catching fish. There is also a Lure Rod.

General uses Edit

Fish can be used in a number of ways, such as:

  • Sold for 50-100 Gilda (depending on the size and type of fish)
  • Cooked on the Cooking Stove (purchased for 300 Gilda at Morton's Sundries as early as Chapter 1[Clarify when]) to become a health restoring item (depending on the size and type of fish)
  • Raised in the Rec Tank of an Aquarium to increase their stats

Aquarium Edit
