Recovery items are hit points and abnormal status-restoring items in Dark Cloud and Dark Cloud 2. Health items typically appear as simple food items, which heal small amounts, ranging to more complex and larger types of food that in turn heal larger amounts. Some types of food have a minor negative side effect, such causing the thirst status. Water-based items on the other hand exist to fill the thirst meter exclusive to Dark Cloud, where as in Dark Cloud 2 they only heal the aforementioned thirst status.

Lastly are status restoring items, most of which heal either one specific condition or all of them at once, such as the rare Mighty Healing. Stamina Drink is technically not a recovery item and instead grants a temporary statistical power-up, but does actually cure status conditions completely once it wears off. Note that a few of the status-restoring items can also be used offensively against monsters, making them throwing items.

To use a recovery item, select it and drag it to the intended recipient, who must be hurt or under a status effect for it to work. It is also possible to place any recovery item in an active item slot, which will allow you to use it during combat at will.

Most of these items can be typically found inside shops, treasure chests, miracle chests, by stealing monsters, or slaying those that drop any, as well as 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 strength of it. The strongest are commonly won as a prize in the Fishing Contest, Finny Frenzy or Spheda in Dark Cloud 2.
