* The ''{{Pokemon}}'' series lets you make your team carry everything from claws to tails to rocks to ashes to scarves to bows to ribbons to berries to herbs to ''sweat'' and ''drool'' and even ''breath'' of other Pokémon to get stat boosts or other effects. You can make a Pokémon hold anything, but a large set of them actually grant a tangible benefit like +10% damage with a certain move type, a small stat boost, always going first, etc. There are also consumable items that the Pokémon will use automatically when hurt or affected with a status ailment.

* ''SecretOfEvermore''. Every accessory in the entire game. Chocobo Egg gives you and your dog more HP? A ring gives you a run button? Some... jewelry-type things... increase your dodge ability? Okay!

* ''VideoGame/SailorMoonAnotherStory'', has the Sailor Senshi equip jewelery to increase their stats rather then any actual equipment. Earrings, Tiaras, and even a wrist watch. The best ones for each senshi use their particular thematic gemstone and for some reason, doesn't work on anyone else if they equip it. They are bought in regular stores run by muggles, (Though the character specific ones have to be found) so they can't even be magical.
* These things are everywhere in PhantasyStarOnline. Weapons can be anything from a frying pan or wok to a game magazine. Bunny ears, cat ears, and wedding dresses show up as types of armor. And, if you play your cards right, you can turn your MAG into most (if not all) of Sega's game consoles.

** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyII'', wearing a Gold Hairpin not only makes you faster, but makes you take less damage from lightning magic. Equipping shields makes you ''faster'' in battle due to turn order being determined by evasion chance, which shields raise.



*** In that same vein, [[FinalFantasyXIII Snow's]] weapons are sigils sewn on the back of his longcoat. How these help him punch more effectively is beyond us.


Added DiffLines:

** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' and ''VideoGame/LightningReturnsFinalFantasyXIII'', characters can randomly negate an attack by carrying ''dice''.

* ''KingdomOfLoathing'', being a parody of computer [=RPG=]s, embraces this trope with all of its being. Some things make perfect sense, like the ordinary metal pail you can use as a helmet to absorb damage. Some things make a certain degree of sense, like the duct tape sword that increases your odds of looting items when you defeat monsters. Some things only make sense due to convoluted pop culture associations, like the arrrgyle socks (they have extra R's because they're dropped by pirates) which boost your mysticality as an offhand reference to The Pattern from ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfAmber''. However, there are also [[http://kol.coldfront.net/thekolwiki/index.php/Tiny_Plastic_Enchantments tiny plastic figurines]] you can carry, which inexplicably do anything from doubling your spell damage to raising the odds of monsters dropping candy.

*** Cait Sith has at least the excuse of having a mount in battle, [[FridgeLogic so the various megaphones he equips may act as a way to voice his commands to his mount.]] Red XIII, on the other hand, has no plausible explanation as to how wearing various hair clips help him have stronger attacks.

* The TabletopGame/{{MUNCHKIN}} series is overflowing with examples of this.

* The TabletopGame/{{MUNCHKIN}} series is overflowing with examples of this. For example, a [[NiceHat Magnificent Hat]] blocks the effect of curses, and a Bow With Ribbons gives elves a combat bonus even though the ribbons look like they'd get in the way.
