The Item Trade Quest is a quest in Dark Cloud. Toan can trade various items throughout his journey, in order to obtain the best Weapon attachment, the Sun Gemstone.


Candy is the first item obtained during the Item Trade Quest. It can be acquired in Norune Village or Matataki Village.

Norune VillageEdit

If Toan visits Claude in the morning, he'll give him the "Candy" lollipop.
This is missable if Toan doesn't visit him in the morning. Claude will be asleep during the day, and will give him Cheese (instead of Candy) at night.

Matataki VillageEdit

If the Candy lollipop was not received from Claude in Norune Village, then it can be obtained from Couscous in Matataki Village. If Toan refuses the offer, then he'll hand over a Fire or Ice weapon attachment, and if that is refused, he'll hand over the Turtle Shell.

If the Candy lollipop is missed from Couscous too, the trade quest will end and the Sun Gemstone will become unattainable.

Ointment LeafEdit

The "Ointment Leaf" can only be obtained in exchange for the Candy lollipop. This will happen during Bunbuku's House Georama event. Bunbuku will ask Toan if he happens to have a Candy lollipop, because he mistakenly ate the one that Kululu had. In return he'll give up the Ointment Leaf, which can be made into a cure-all medicine (akin to Lao Chao's Miracle Dish, in Dark Cloud 2).


In the town of Queens, the Ointment Leaf can be exchanged for the "Foundation," a powder that can make women beautiful. Basker will trade the items involved, but he is only open during the day.

Clay DollEdit

The Foundation must next be given to Jibubu, in Muska Lacka, in exchange for the last key item, the "Clay Doll." This can only be done when Jibubu is inside his house.

Sun GemstoneEdit

Finally, Marnia, in Yellow Drops, will trade the Clay Doll for the unique Sun Gemstone, a Weapon attachment that grants +10 to Attack, +10 to all elemental stats, and +3 to all anti-monster stats.
