The Captain's Stripe is an item that permanently increase the maximum health of the player's ship. They increase the Little Jack's health by 1,000 and the Delphinus' by 2,000. They are obtained at the end of major ship battles. There is no reason to hold on to the Captain's Stripe to save them because any Captain's Stripe used on the Little Jack carries over to the Delphinus.
Captain's Stripes may be obtained in the following battles:
- A Captain's Stripe is awarded to the player after defeating the penultimate boss of the game, Zelos, but as there is no chance to access the menu before continuing onto the last boss, the player will not get a chance to use it. Furthermore, as Zelos is the final ship battle, there would be no reason to use it anyway.
