Ah, Aztec Crystal Skulls. There are 13 of them, and nobody knows what they're for, but they're supposedly packed with occult power. Consequently, they make great stock Mac Guffins for Gotta Catch 'Em All quests or other adventures.

Examples: Crystal skulls arc of American Dragon: Jake Long Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

    Are you accepting card games? E.g. in Yu Gi Oh there's a Crystal Skull card which is one of the three pieces of 'Ancient Treasure' which, combined, create the dreaded and wildly sought-after Triangle O which destroys everything. In the Animated Series based on it, I think I remember when 3 different groups are after one just to be able to activate the Triangle O, and there's a giant card-battle. It is in the Video game Yu Gi Oh! 5D's Tag Force 4, and another I think.

    Also, there are 30 Crystal Skulls scattered throughout the first eleven chapters of Ninja Gaiden 2, though they're not the real MacGuffins.
