Types of items

Healing items

The first major group of items is the Healing items, which help restore lost stats (HP and MP) or ailments (poison, paralysis, etc). These were usually sold in shops, but there are exceptions.

  • HP restoring is usually individual, with two items, one for lower restoring and another for higher. The lower restoring item has always been consistent throughout the series: the Medical Herb, which restores about 10HP. The higher restoration was majorly the Healing Seed, which restores about 20HP. However, Shining Force II introduced the Healing Drop, which restores about 30HP, and the Healing Water, which restores full HP. Shining Force III dropped the Healing Seed completely and lowered the Healing Drop to that price, maintaining the Healing Water as well (renamed as Potion in the west). Another consistency of the series is a collective HP restoring item, the Shower of Cure, which restores either a lot or all HP for all party members.
  • MP restoring was a novelty introduced with Shining Force II and carried on for Shining Force III, having both an individual item, the Fairy Tear (Shining Force III renamed it to Godess Tear), which restored about 20MP and a collective one, the Light of Hope, which restored all MP for all party members.
  • Ailments were simply Poison in the first titles, cured by an Antidote Herb, which worked as a Detox Spell LV1. Shining Force II introduced other ailments, all cured by a Fairy Powder, which worked as a Detox Spell LV2, including the Poison but excluding Curse. Shining Force III expanded upon the ailments even more but maintained the structure, only downgrading the Paralysis to be cured by an Antidote Herb.
  • The Angel Wing is not a healing item and has been consistent as well. It returns to the last priest available, acting like Egress LV1.

Boosting items

The second major group of items is the Boosting items, which permanently change any Stats points by a small margin. The original items changed every but LV and MP, but like many other things, Shining Force II introduced two additional items for these. The item names have changed within regions and more than the healing items, especially the attack and defence ones, but they’ve also been somewhat consistent. These items were usually found in exploration fields or dropped by enemies, never in shops.

  • Brave Apple - Raises one level.
  • Cheerful Bread - Raises maximum HP. Shining Force III renamed it to Health Bread.
  • Bright Honey - Raises maximum MP. Shining Force III renamed it Brain Food in the west, though the sprite showed a hive with honey leaking.
  • Power Potion / Wine - Raises base attack.
  • Defense Potion / Armor Milk - Raises base defence.
  • Quick Chicken - Raises base agility. Renamed from Legs of Haste in the original for all subsequent games.
  • Running Pimento - Raises base movement. Renamed from Turbo Pepper in the original for all subsequent games and renamed in Shining Force III as Nimble Onion in the west.

Important items

The third major group of items is important items, found only in the main titles of the series. These act as keys to unlock parts of the story, either mandatory or discretionary. The majority of the latter are required to recruit secret characters for the forces but Shining Force III introduced Tomb Maps, which accessed Ruins within battles where several powerful items were stored.

Other items

Apart from the three major groups, these items are also present in the series:

  • In Shining Force, there were two items that changed the characters’ attire.
  • In Shining Force II, characters were promoted by carrying a specific item and then talking to a priest.
  • In Shining Force II, several items could be used in battle to attack enemies, and functioned as spells of some sort. This was revisited in Shining Force III, albeit a minor appearance and the only item indeed corresponded to an existent spell.
  • In Shining Force II it was possible to forge high quality items out of a piece of Mithril. Shining Force III expanded on the subject, by introducing pieces of Mithril that could be forged into accessories, material that could be forged into cursed weapons and exclusive to the third scenario, material that could be forged into very high quality weapons.

List of items by title

  • All names are from the english versions. The exceptions are Shining Force Gaiden: Final Conflict and exclusive items from scenario II and III of Shining Force III, where unnoficial translated names are given instead. If given, the game description for each item is in italics.
