Recovery items are consumable items which restore hit points and cure abnormal status' in both Dark Cloud and Dark Cloud 2. They appear as food, drinks, and other items which may be consumed from the inventory screen or active item slot, to achieve the desired effect. In some cases, a character must be under a status effect or low on HP in order for the item to be consumed.

  • Note that some of the status-restoring items can also be used offensively against monsters, which simultaneously classifies them as throwing items.
  • There are also some Powders which could be considered Recovery items, such as the Revival Powder (Dark Cloud) or Resurrection Powder (Dark Cloud 2)

Most of these items can be typically found inside shops, treasure chests, miracle chests, by stealing from monsters, or slaying those that drop any. They may also be received from some characters as gifts or made using the inventing system. The price, rarity and difficulty to find or make any of these items increases with the restorative magnitude of each item.

Differences in game Edit

Dark Cloud Edit

  • Water-based drinks are used to replenish the thirst meter, which is exclusive to Dark Cloud

Dark Cloud 2 Edit

  • Some types of food have a minor negative side effect, such as causing the thirst status effect, rather than replenishing a thirst meter (which does not exist in Dark Cloud 2)
  • The strongest items are commonly won as a prize in the Fishing Contest, Finny Frenzy or Spheda in Dark Cloud 2.
