- Classic Mac Guffin- The exact nature and capabilities of the item are irrelevant to the progression of the plot. It merely exists as something that motivates people to be involved and may even be discarded or discovered to be worthless before the end.
- Useful Mac Guffin- The exact nature and capabilities of the item are very well defined and those powers may even be used within the story. The key is that the exact powers, name, origin and/or the physical form can be altered with no discernable impact on the core of the plot.
