** The Fourth Doctor's scarf and bag of jelly babies. Early in his run the production team had intended his yo-yo to be his signature item (note its prominent use in "The Ark in Space"), but it didn't stick.

** The Fourth Doctor's scarf and bag of jelly babies. Early in his run the production team had intended his yo-yo to be his signature item (note its prominent use in "The Ark in Space"), but it didn't stick. This one also has also become one for the show as a whole -- even today, following the massive success of the post-2005 series, a good way to instantly identify someone as "mad-keen ''Doctor Who'' fan" is to wrap them in a very long multi-coloured scarf.

* Guts from ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' actually has three one-of-a-kind items, any one of these, which would identify him to somebody who had only heard about him. The single most famous is his {{BFS}} The Dragonslayer made by the blacksmith Godo, which is so huge and heavy that only someone of his superhuman strength could wield it effectively. The second, which was actually presented to him shortly ''before'' the Dragonslayer, his mechanical is a prosthetic iron hand and his equipped with an ArmCannon which replaces the one he lost in the Eclipse. The third is the Berserker armour, all of Armor, a cursed armor made by dwarves which are one-of-a-kind items that match lets him unleash the fighting frenzy of his personality.inner beast at great cost to his body and his sanity.

* All Servants in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' have at least one Noble Phantasm, a weapon or item exclusive to themselves as a heroic spirit. Examples include Lancer's Gae Bolg and Caster's Rule Breaker.



* ''VisualNovel/ZeroEscape'':
** Luna ([[ReplacementGoldfish and]] [[spoiler:Diana, the human she was created to mimic]]) wears an [[AnimalMotifs appropriately symbolic]] cage necklace. In a promo image for the third game, [[spoiler:Diana]]'s face is actually hidden for dramatic effect- so the necklace is the only indication of her identity.
** Akane's doll, which played a pivotal role in her backstory and symbolizes her ([[BeneathTheMask otherwise hidden]]) humanity. Even in the second game- when the doll doesn't even appear- it's still highly relevant to the plot, being part of a computer password that the protagonists must find.
** Clover's axe- even though it isn't technically ''her'' axe, and only appears in one of many possible endings. That ending terrified the fans so much that axes and Clover became synonymous to them.
* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'':
** Rena's NiceHat, which is used at least once to signify [[spoiler:[[SignatureItemClue that she's dead]]]]. Her cleaver also counts.
** Mion has her taser that she's never shown using. It was removed in the remakes but appears in adaptations.
** Both Keiichi and Satoshi are heavily associated with baseball bats. Satoshi was into baseball but is associated with bats because [[spoiler:he beat his abusive aunt to death with it]]. Keiichi is associated with bats (specifically Satoshi's hand-me-down bat) for similar reasons.

And Minagi Tohno with rice tickets, which she carries with her by the dozen, and likes handing them to Yukito.
** Both girls appear as playable characters in ''VideoGame/EternalFighterZero'': Kano actually has two iconic items: her yellow ribbon, and her [[WeaponOfChoice signature weapon]], a MagicStaff to go along [[BlackMagicianGirl her ability to cast]] [[FireIceLightning elemental magic]]; And Minagi is capable of using her rice tickets as weapons.
