Empowered is a positive status effect and a battle mechanic that appears in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood.
In gameplay, when a target is affected by Empowered, he/she does more damage to enemies in battle. A few rounds after the target has been given Empowered, however, it will wear off.
Empowered can be used by both playable characters and certain enemies. Empowered can be given to a target by performing certain POW moves, such as Blow Kiss, though playable characters can also be given Empowered by using Rock Salt.
