A Bonus is a modifier that changes or enhances activities or actions in the Valley. When a Bonus is active, an icon and accompanying text displays in the lower-right corner of the UI, above the image of the currently active tool. Multiple Bonuses can be active simultaneously. They will display in the order that they were activated, with the oldest at the top, and the most recent at the bottom.

Companion Role Benefits
Hanging out with a Villager with a role has a chance to provide extra resources. Assigning additional Villagers to the same role will increase the bonus resource chance for all characters with that role.
This hang out bonus is also tied to the Friendship level of the both the "hang out" Villager and all other Villagers with the same role.
The bonus chance of a resource when gathering while hanging out with a Villager with the matching role is:
Bonus Chance = Base Chance + Active Friend Level + Inactive Friend Level
- Base Chance: 20% for Gardening, and 25% for all other roles.
- Active Friend Level: 3.5% per friendship level of the Villager hanging out, up to 35% at level 10 friendship
- Inactive Friend Level: 1% per friendship level of all friends not hanging out, up to 10% each friend at level 10 friendship
This means bonus resources will be generated 100% of the time while hanging out if there are 5 Villagers assigned that same role (6 if the role is Gardening).
Well Fed Benefits
When the Well Fed Bonus is active, two additional speeds of locomotion become available to the Player.
The Player can run at a faster speed for no extra energy expenditure.
The Player can glide/hover using Sprint. This action will quickly expend Energy, and as soon as the Well Fed Bonus is exhausted, the Player will automatically stop Sprinting.
The rate of Critical Harvests (Golden Harvests) is reported to be increased.
If there is a currently active Star Path duty to collect a specific item, activating a Bonus will be ineffective. For example, if a duty to "Mine Amethysts" is active and the Miracle Pickaxe Polish has been used, rock nodes in the Frosted Heights and Forgotten Lands (where Amethyst can be found) will only yield the other Minerals for those Biomes until the charges of the Bonus have been depleted.
