Power up items are powerful consumables in the Dark Cloud series that permanently raise a playable character's hit points, defense, or thirst meter, though the latter only applies to Dark Cloud. They are quite rare, and cannot be found in dungeons, treasure chests, shops or from monsters. They can only be found in miracle chests inside of towns, almost always in the future in Dark Chronicle, after progressing through the dungeons and Georama, or as gifts from inhabitants in the first game. Be careful to note that several of these are missable. Uniquely, Zelmite Mine also offers several power up items as Spheda rewards.
The Shield Kit is a notable exception to this, as it can be bought from Cedric for 600 XP, a price which increases with 10% after each purchase. The Fruit of Eden and Gourd will also fully restore the health and thirst meter, respectively, making them useful as an impromptu recovery item kept in reserve.
The Pocket is the only item that does not raise a stat, but instead increases inventory space.
