Like most RPGs, the Golden Sun series features a wide variety of items that players can use to their advantage. The following items are consumable, meaning that the items will disappear when used. Fortunately, these items are also stackable, a term used to describe items that only take up one inventory slot despite a given character having multiple copies of the item. In the Golden Sun series, each party member can hold up to 30 of any consumable item.

Battle items[edit | edit source]

The following items are all united in that they can be used in battles, although some can also be used out of battle.

HP-restoring items[edit | edit source]

These items are used to replenish a party member's Hit Points, or HP. If characters run out of HP, they go down. If all party members run out of HP, players will get a Game Over and must continue their game from the nearest sanctum or the last time they saved. On that note, these items will only work on a character who has not yet been felled.
