It might sound weird and nuts but I have been thinking of this, which items haven't been used EVER in a adventure game... at least not yet. Here is my list of stuff nobody haven't been used in a adventure game that I know. Correct me if I'm wrong at a part.

A jojo
A skunk (note: the black cat you get in Day of the Tentacle doesn't count as a skunk)
A plastic goose with a rope on the top (Just kidding!)
A pen-eraser
A comic-book
A rubber-ducky
A voodoo-mask
Corndogs
Can of beer
A Grim reaper suit
A chicken suit
A DVD-movie
Some garlic
Some curry-powder

Well that's all I can think up of for now. You guys can tell me things that I missed.

A grim reaper suit was of course used in the classic LucasArts game, Grim Fandango.  One of my personal favorites.

And I dunno if the tofu mask from CMI counts, but that was sort of a voodoo mask.   :P

I've not seen my mum as an inventory item.

Then of course you could have a pointless thread asking people to list everything in the universe ever, (excluding only a relativly MINUTE numer of arbitrary objects) as an inventory item...

Would that be a paradox?

Well, the grim reaper suit in Grim Fandango doesn't count since it's NOT an iventory item and when I meant by the suit, a skull-mask be included. The tofu mask doesn't count because it was to fool the vegetarian cannibals so it's more of a cannibal mask than a voodoo mask.

Eggie, are you suffering under amenisia or do never play Monkey Island? No offense really, But keys have been used in a lot of adventure games and shovels have appeared a couple of MI games. A grabbeling hook was what Guybrush used at the end of LeChuck's revenge so it doesn't count. And I asked about things that have NOT been used as an iventory in ANY adventure game, not even AGS games. So think about three times before you reply, ok?

Just like there's never been a "find the clit" puzzle.

Or did I miss something in Lola - Sexy Empire?

Well, how about the Crocodile mask in GK1, which I believe Gabriel uses in the voodoo ceremony?

Has there ever been an adventure game walkthru as an inventory item?
