The "Singapore cane" for [[Wrestling/JimFullington The Sandman]], though he also has his beer cans.

* Not strictly speaking an Iconic Item in the singular sense, but Literature/NeroWolfe has the orchids that he grows in the rooftop greenhouse of his New York brownstone. The brownstone itself might also count, depending on how far we're willing to stretch the definition of 'item', since it's so lovingly and consistently detailed in each novel.

* Natsu's scarf in ''Manga/FairyTail'' is ever-present, even while he's sleeping. When Lucy accidentally yanked it off him (trying to pull it up) and he didn't seem to notice, she knew something was wrong.
** His scarf is a gift from his dragon-foster-father Igneel. It's probably made of dragon skin. It's also a ChekhovsGun, as it later protects Natsu from [[spoiler:Zeref's death magic]].

** Mario's hat. In ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'', if his hat is lost or stolen, he'll take double damage until he gets it back. In ''VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine'', if it's lost or stolen, he'll actually take damage every few moments ''because'' he's not wearing it. Justified because the strategy guide says he's getting sunburn without his hat protecting him. In ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2'', [[spoiler:Luma takes Mario's hat in the ending]]. He's not too happy about it.

** Marin from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening'' is almost never depicted without a HarpOfFemininity. It appears in several official artworks and in her ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' trophy, plus many fanworks include it. Unusually the harp ''isn't'' present in the actual game. There is not even a mention of her being able to play the harp. Her appearance in VideoGame/HyruleWarriors intead depicts her with the [[InstrumentOfMurder Sea Lily's Bell]].

* Ralphie's baseball hat from ''Literature/TheMagicSchoolBus''. He [[NeverBareheaded always wears it]], even when sick in bed. The [[WesternAnimation/TheMagicSchoolBusRidesAgain reboot]] modernized everyone's clothes to fit 2010s styles but kept his hat (which is a relic of the 90s when many male characters wore caps).

*** The horned Iron Helmet has become this for [[PlayerCharacter the Dragonborn]].Dragonborn]], despite it being the lowest tier heavy armor headgear, it is featured heavily in promotional materials and simply [[HornyVikings looks so badass]]. When it shows up in other media, it's a visual shorthand for the whole game.
