* Wrestling/AlSnow's CompanionCube, a decapitated mannequin head called [[ALizardCalledLiz Head]]. Actually caused some trouble when Head was included with an Al Snow toy sold to children, causing at least one upset mother to mistakenly think it represented the actual severed head of a woman and assume she'd bought her child a doll of a misogynistic serial killer.

* [[WebVideo/{{Jimquisition}} Jim Sterling's]] glasses with the red lenses, red tie, black gloves and coat, and usually his NiceHat. Also his podium covered with miniatures and toys, most notably [[CompanionCube Miniature Fantasy]] Creator/WillemDafoe.
** Incidentally, in his video [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PN4Umsjp6Cs "Ubiconic"]], Jim himself [[DeconstructedTrope extensively ripped apart]] Creator/{{Ubisoft}}'s obsession with marketing items belonging to their characters as "iconic" even though the franchise was brand new, [[ActionGenreHeroGuy the character was as generic as they come]], and the items were in no way truly "iconic", just so they can offer reproductions of them as [[PreOrderBonus preorder bribes]]. He scathingly advised that Ubisoft read a dictionary before they [[YouKeepUsingThatWord throw the word "iconic" around so much]], suggesting the most "iconic" things about Ubisoft were their predilection for [[ObviousBeta releasing games in a horribly bug-ridden state]], releasing games packed with intrusive and inconvenient {{DRM}}, absurdly overloading every release with {{Pre Order Bonus}}es to try and gouge as much money as possible from their players, homogenising all their games into the same open world QuicksandBox, just [[BlatantLies repeatedly lying to everyone about everything]], or most of all, [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment their own misuse of the word "iconic"]]. The [[RageBreakingPoint last straw that triggered this rant]] was Ubisoft's attempt to market the boring brown leather jacket worn by one of the characters in ''VideoGame/TheDivision'' as "iconic".

* While all the pilots in ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' wear a headset to help them link with their Eva units, Asuka wears hers with her civilian clothes as well (wearing them like barrettes). This helps to establish certain things about Asuka. On a personal level, she is proud to be a pilot, and doesn't want anyone to forget it. The shape of this gear also gives her "horns" like a female Oni (ogre) [[UruseiYatsura like another character we could mention]]. It's worth noting that ''oni musume'' (ogre's daughter) is roughly the Japanese equivalent of "bitch" -- which definitely fits her {{Jerkass}} personality.

* Creator/CharlieChaplin: His bowler hat, cane, baggy pants, large shoes.



* Creator/MauriceChevalier: His yellow boater hat and tuxedo.
* ''Franchise/IndianaJones''' Bomber jacket, bullwhip and fedora. It was specifically designed so you know the character just from his silhouette.
* ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'': Captain Jack Sparrow's hat. And his compass that doesn't point north.
* Speaking of ArmCannon weaponry, there's also Ashley J. Williams from ''Franchise/EvilDead''. Only instead of an arm-gun, he lopped off his hand and lashed a ''chainsaw'' onto it. This and his sawed off, back-holstered, shotgun are easily the most iconic items for Ash.
* "[[Film/GoldenEye Walther PPK, 7.65 millimetre. Only three men I know use such a gun... and I believe I've killed two of them]]." Film/JamesBond finds a newer Walther in ''Film/TomorrowNeverDies'', and uses it in the following movies up until ''Film/CasinoRoyale2006''. When promotional pictures from ''Film/QuantumOfSolace'' showed him having gone back to the PPK, the fandom rejoiced.

** Darth Vader's entire costume.
** [[TheStoic Mace Windu's]] purple [[LaserBlade lightsaber]] and Darth Maul's double-bladed lightsaber are unique weapons (all lightsabers are different, but Windu and Maul's are the only ones of their kind seen). Notably, the purple lightsaber was Creator/SamuelLJackson's only demand for accepting the role. This doesn't carry over into the ExpandedUniverse, where purple is a 'neutral' color used by both Jedi and Sith, and double lightsabers are present but not common. Lightsabers in general are iconic weapons for the franchise.
