* In the ''StarOcean'' series, item creation often yields items like this, especially to begin with. One particularly annoying example is the Bounced Cheque in ''VideoGame/StarOceanTheSecondStory'', which continually drains your party's money until you get rid of it, which costs money to do since you can't throw items away and its sale value is negative.

** The Hammer present in all games and the Golden Hammer in ''Brawl'' and ''SSB4'' both have a chance of being defective and completely harmless, which is a bit problematic when you can't voluntarily get rid of them. It's especially bad in the case of the former, as the head of the hammer falls off, after which it can be used as an extremely powerful throwing weapon, with the most likely target being the defenseless wielder of the broken hammer (now a useless stick). The Golden Hammer doesn't have such complications, but you can probably buy one in real life: The Golden ''Squeaky'' Hammer.

* The ''[[TabletopGame/{{Pokemon}} Pokémon Trading Card Game]]'' contains a promo card called Imakuni?, which confuses your active Pokémon upon use. That's all it does. The card itself was [[NoExportForYou only available in Japan]], but it also appears in the card game's video game adaptation.

* The Anchor in ''[[Literature/NintendoAdventureBooks Leaping Lizards]]''. While it served a purpose in both ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'' and the previous book, in this story all it does is drag Luigi down and cause him drown if he falls into a body of water.

** Half the unidentified items are actually cursed items. A bottle that looks like a Potion of Mirror Eyes (which protects against petrification) may instead turn you into stone. An obviously magical sword could put the character in a permanent Berserker state. Then there's the boots of double-speed, which are faster than speed boots, but cause fatigue and render the user unable to attack. However, the programmers unintentionally gave a way for savvy players to know what unidentified items are cursed (hint: even Bards with High Lore can't identify them on the spot). This is a continuation of the classical cursed items from ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' such as the Boots of Dancing, or a Dagger of Lycanthrope Sympathy (instead of killing Werewolves well, they're attract them well). Classic cursed items in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' also include weapons and armor that give AC and to-hit-and-damage ''penalties'' instead of bonuses, such as a -1 sword or a suit of -2 armor. Naturally, once you equip them, you can't take them off or otherwise be rid of them until a mage or cleric can cast a Remove Curse spell on you.

* In the world of computing, we have [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honeypot_(computing) The Honeypot]]. It consists of a block of data, files, or even an entire server in a computing system that is unused, isolated, and monitored, and designed to look valuable. The idea is should someone gain unauthorized access they'll go for the Honeypot, and since nobody else uses the Honeypot anyone accessing it will immediately [[TableTopGames/YuGiOh trigger the owner's trap card]] and get caught.

* ''VideoGame/ClarencesBigChance'': The hamburger. It will give Clarence "breath like an ogre" and make him look fat, which will cost you a lot of points at the date section.

*** The place of the classic poison mushrooms from TheLostLevels is now taken by the zombie mushrooms, which spawn from ?-blocks like items, but quickly show their true undead face and chase Mario as enemies.
