Powders are usable items with a variety of effects, such as escaping dungeons, automatically filling the ABS bar on a weapon, reviving a fallen character, or even preventing death. They are primarily used to restore a weapon's WHP, in both Dark Cloud and Dark Cloud 2. While many of them have very similar functions, names, and appearances, each game features powders which are exclusive to themselves.
Differences in game Edit
Repair Powder is relatively common in both games, easily found as loot, in Treasure chests, or stolen from enemies. Other powders are a bit less common and more expensive as a result. Powerup and Level Up Powders are among rarest items in both games, only found in either back floor chests or miracle chests in Dark Cloud, or as a reward from the Fishing Contest, Finny Frenzy, or Spheda in Dark Cloud 2. It should also be noted that in Dark Cloud, Revival Powder is much less difficult to come by than the Resurrection Powder in Dark Cloud 2, which is considerably more difficult to come by.
Dark Cloud Edit
There are 2 Powders which are functionally exclusive to the original game:
- Auto Repair Powder, which automatically repairs weapons when equipped to an active item slot
- Stand-in Powder,which allows you to switch characters if one is defeated in battle
Dark Cloud 2 Edit
Dark Cloud 2 introduces specific Repair Powders for weapons:
- Ridepod Fuel is used as a powder, and is used to restore the Ridepod's energy
The prices of the various repair powders increase steadily as the game progresses, starting at 80 Gilda. These are the only items in the game which change price based on the players story progression.
