Added DiffLines:

* The "Hessian Por Homme[=/=]Femme" {{DLC}} items in ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet'', cologne and perfume, respectively. They serve no purpose other than to make Sackboy do an animation as he applies the cologne or perfume. But it's justified, considering [[AprilFoolsDay what holiday happens near the time that the DLC gets put up]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'''s running gag of the Xanthous Armor set (a set of ''bright pimpin' yellow'' armor in a series known for drab colors, with a head piece that can only be described as a ball of cloth five times the size of your head) is not an example, as it is a decent set of light armor aside from the [[RainbowPimpGear obvious problem]]. ''VideoGame/DarkSouls2'', on the other hand, adds the Moonlight Butterfly set, a similarly gaudy butterfly-themed costume with awful stats (it has the ability to inflict poison merely by standing around someone, but it's more likely to get NPCs mad at you than be any help in a fight), as well as a ladle... meant to be used as a mace, with all the power you'd expect from a kitchen implement. Both ''2'' and ''[[VideoGame/DarkSouls3 3]]'' also feature the Porcine Shield, a terrible-quality shield shaped like a pig head that even the in-game descriptions like to make fun of.

* ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'' or "Devil Kings" had several joke items as top-level weapons for the characters. Some of them were ShoutOut to other games ([[TheHero Yukimura]] using two [[VideoGame/DevilMayCry Sparda swords]]), but others were totally ridicolous, including a set of Tambourines for [[HighlyVisibleNinja Kasuga]], a ''Swordfish'' for [[HotUncle Toshiie]], leeks for [[OlderSidekick Kojuuro]] and oversized fork&knife set for [[AxCrazy Mitsuhide]].

** Creating and completing mazes in Moblin Maze Mongers will earn you Moblin Marbles, which can be traded for things like a shovel or toy hammer, neither of which has anything remotely similar in the game. Oh, and the toy hammer actually makes squeeking noises when hitting targets :D

* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' has scores of these, many of which are gained through the TCG spinoff. Some also fall in the category of [[WeBuyAnything Vendor Trash]] but some players keep them for pure entertainment. The probably most straight example is an epic item from a daily quest in Wrath of the Lich King, the Pa'Trolla Badge. While the item has an "equip" (Shows everyone how awesome you are) atttribute, it does absolutely nothing.

* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'' lets you throw eggs at the Ganados. And, if you don't want to shoot [[DamselScrappy Ashley]], [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential you can throw eggs at her]].

to:

* The ResidentEvil series has a long standing tradition of having a knife that is useless to varying degrees. To wit:
** ResidentEvil1, the knife is semi-useful early on, due to the limited ammo and a GoodBadBug that lets you stab zombies if they are caught behind something, like say a statue or a banister. Beyond that it's not worth using.
** ResidentEvil2 the knife is completely useless, doing pitiful damage to any enemy that isn't already a one hit kill to any other weapon.
** The ResidentEvil3 knife is actually incredibly versatile, being able to stun lock a Cerberus, take down a zombie in as little as four hits, and even kill Nemesis in the police station due to the [[GoodBadBug corner bug]]. There are also a couple of EnvironmentalHazards the knife can be used on to save a few rounds of ammo. In Jill's hands. For Carlos, not so much.
** ResidentEvilCodeVeronica, the knife is upgraded to full on LethalJokeItem, due to it's ability to hit a monster multiple times in one slash.

Added DiffLines:

* In the cathedral in ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'' one can occasionally find the Black Mushroom, which was a quest item in the first game and is absolutely useless here. The flavor text is a misquote from Griswold saying that he knows as much about giant mushrooms as about {{red herring}}s.

* The Water Pistol, from ''MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain''. It can actually be used to startle enemies and short-circuit electronics, but it's not nearly useful enough to be a LethalJokeItem.

[[spoiler: During the fight against the Man on Fire in Mission 20 it can be used to extinguish his flames despite Miller's protests, but it takes about ''90 shots'' at close range to put him out once.]]

* ''Videogame/JustCause 2'' has the Bubble Blaster, a hidden weapon which is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. Made even more hilarious by the fact that NPCs react to it like it's any other weapon, cowering in fear when it's fired at them.
