Powders are usable items with a variety of effects, though primarily used to restore a weapon's WHP, in Dark Cloud and Dark Cloud 2. They can also be used to instantly escape a dungeon, automatically fill the ABS bar on a weapon, or revive a fallen character.
Exclusive to Dark Cloud is the Auto Repair Powder, which automatically repairs weapons when equipped to an active item slot, and the Stand-In Powder, which allows you to switch characters if one is defeated in battle. Dark Cloud 2 introduces specific Repair Powders for weapons, guns, and armbands. Ridepod Fuel is used to restore the Ridepod's energy.
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. In Dark Cloud 2, 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 that change price based on story progression.
In Dark Cloud, Revival Powder is not particularly rare, but the Resurrection Powder in Dark Cloud 2 is, only seen rarely in treasure chests or as a reward from the Fishing Contest, Finny Frenzy, or Spheda. 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. Ridepod Fuel can be found in various breakable objects in dungeons, or purchased with Ridepod in the Gundorada Workshop.
