This is when the player receives any item, especially a mundane one, and fanfare ensues! In some games, collecting items is Serious Business, with the merest trinket is awarded the same dramatic significance as the hero's +10 Sword of Plot Advancement. This can be shown in all sorts of ways. Lens flares, sparkles, sun rays, glowing effects, trumpets, exciting music, cherubs, ribbons, banners... all of these things and more can occur for obtaining an important key item, and super weapon, 1 Gilda, or Piece of Shiny Rubble equally. Subtrope of Mundane Made Awesome.
(I'm sleepy and I started not being able to think around the word sparkles.)

You need to Get Known to get one of those.
