* Franchise/{{Pokemon}} that have the Pickup ability can get free items at a random chance after battles and are also generally capable of learning Thief or Covet, which allows them to steal items. They tend to not be good for much else, due to frequently being ComMons.

* Franchise/{{Pokemon}} that have the Pickup ability can get free items at a random chance after battles and are also generally capable of learning Thief or Covet, which allows them to steal items. They tend to not be good for much else, due to frequently being ComMons. Additionally, Harvest is the "free item" sort, as a user has a 50% chance of getting a berry back after consuming it (going up to 100% if bright sunlight is active).



* In ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}, several abilities give the user extra utility with items. The Pickup ability gives a 10% chance to find random items after a battle (including some very exensive ones, like a RareCandy), plus it allows the user in later generations to grab a copy of an item used up by a foe. Harvest is the "free item" sort, as a user has a 50% chance of getting a berry back after consuming it (going up to 100% if bright sunlight is active).

* Chai from ''VideoGame/MagicalStarsign'' can equip an accessory that doubles the effect of both battle and recovery items, making him the designated ItemCaddy of the group.

Added DiffLines:

* Everyone in ''TabletopGame/{{Numenera}}'' gets to use cyphers (consumable items), but Nanos generally get to carry around one more at any time than either of the other classes. There's a limit on how many cyphers one can carry without something bad happening, as [[ToxicPhlebotinum cyphers become more unstable in close proximity with each other]], but Nanos better understand the forces involved and so can control the instability somewhat, making them superior Caddies to the rest of the party.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/DarkestDungeon'', the Antiquarian has crappy attacks and mediocre support skills, but she allows the party to carry more loot and sometimes finds antiques that turn into trinkets once you return to base.

* In an interesting take on this trope, Pichu in ''SuperSmashBrosMelee'' was designed specifically with items in mind. His extreme speed would allow him to capitalize on item drops to gain the upper hand. Unfortunately for him, tournament rules largely ban items, sending him to the bottom of the tier list.

Sometimes, characters don't have the physical strength of the LightningBruiser, nor the toughness of the MightyGlacier or even the magic abilities of the SquishyWizard and WhiteMage. Maybe they have the speed of the FragileSpeedster, but sometimes not even that. Oh, what is a TagAlongKid to do in order to be actually helpful then?

** Another variant of item-depending class is the ability to throw weapons or money at the enemy. The former is usually given to Ninjas, the latter varies more (the Tactics Advance series gave it to the Juggler, ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'' gave it to the Samurai class, because... [[FridgeLogic Samurai are aristocrats? Or something?]]).

** Likewise, [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Lloyd/Loid/Roid]] from ''[[VideoGame/{{Mother1}} Mother]]''. He and Jeff both use special attack items in exchange for not having any PSI abilities like the other party members.
** Boney takes up this role in ''[[VideoGame/{{Mother 3}} Mother 3]]''. While the other party members have useful abilities, Boney is stuck with only able to use his EnemyScan. On top of that, while fast, his attack power starts to pale in comparison to [[LovableRogue Duster]] and [[GlacierWaif Lucas]] at mid-game, so naturally, he's the best user of the usable rockets and bombs that you'll pick up. In addition, he can't equip as many items as the others, so his inventory will have more space in it.

** [[TheHero Klein]] from ''VideoGame/{{Atelier Iris Eternal Mana}}'' has terrible Stat growth and no direct offensive skill except a very weak physical attack. He is also the only one who can use Mana Items, or even Synthesize them mid-battle. All his skills are also directed at strengthening the power of the items.
** In its chronological prequel, ''VideoGame/{{Atelier Iris 2 the Azoth of Destiny}}'', [[TheHero Felt]] can also synthesize items mid-battle, but otherwise he is a perfectly fine fighter and has no item-related skills. On the other hand, your last party member [[spoiler: Viese]] plays this trope straighter, getting a few of Klein's item related skils.
** In ''VideoGame/{{Atelier Rorona The Alchemist of Arland}}'', main character Rorona is the only one who can use items at all.
** In ''VideoGame/{{Atelier Totori The Adventurer of Arland}}'', again, only Totori and her mentor Rorona can use items. Totori plays this trope straighter, though, as she has a skill called Duplicate, which allows her to use items without actually spending it, but at only 80% power. It's her only skill in the game.
