Unused Items

Item Name In-game Description Notes
birthday candle
This is a birthday candle, which will provide a very small amount of light for a very short amount of time. A usable item that was used to test the effects system. When used, gives an effect called "Light!" that similarily goes unused; it has no effect on the player.
voodoo doll
This doll reminds you of a babe. What babe? The babe with the power. What power? Look, I'm getting sick of all these questions, okay? I'm not the one on trial here! An off-hand item that increases Mysticality by 1.
Newbiesport™ backpack
This backpack is perfect for beginning adventurers, in that it allows them to carry stuff that they wouldn't otherwise be able to carry. A back item that increases item drops from monsters by 1%. It's one of the few remnants of the scrapped Container item sub-slot that once was to be implemented into the game. Before becoming a back item in 2006, it increased Carrying Capacity by 100.
hemp backpack
This is a backpack made out of hemp, which was probably woven together by some filthy hippy. It's ugly, it smells awful, and the straps chafe your shoulders, but it's roomy. I guess they need lots of space for all of their drug paraphernalia and hacky sacks. A back item that increases drops from monsters by 2%. It's another remnant of the scrapped Container sub-slot. Before becoming a back item in 2006, it increased Carrying Capacity by 300.
Mr. Container
This is the very first container-type item found in the Kingdom of Loathing. How lucky you are to have this! A back item that increases drops from monsters by 3%. Again, it's one of the few remnants of the scrapped Container sub-slot. Before becoming a back item in 2006, it increased Carrying Capacity by a whopping 1000.
serrated proboscis extension
This item is not yet implemented. Familiar equipment for the mosquito that increases weight by 20lb. Seeing as how the mosquito is the first familiar a player obtains, it was probably meant for testing. Though it still exists in the game through hacked player's inventories, its proper description was deleted.
Children's Meal of the Damned
This is not here yet. A food item of the lowest quality. Adds 0 adventures and 0 fullness, and doesn't have a unique use message. Might have been intended to drop from the Evil Golden Arches item.
Mr. Shirt
It's Mr. Shirt! Hooray, Mr. Shirt! A shirt item that increases Muscle, Mysticality, and Moxie by 1. Used for testing.
Off-hand balloon
This is a balloon designed to be held in the hand your weapon doesn't occupy. An off-hand item that increases Muscle, Mysticality, and Moxie by 1. Used for testing.
Steaming evil
This is a fist-sized chunk of pure evil, stolen from the Hermit's secret underground laboratory. An off-hand item that increases Hot damage, Sleaze damage, and Spooky damage all by +6.
This is a phat beet. You might even go so far as to call it a mad beet. It has been called the most intense of vegetables, so you might even say that in an intensity contest, a beet cannot be beaten. Or beeten. An item that was a rare drop from resting at your campsite, before being removed around 2005. Is not usable or equippable; in other words, entirely useless.
Guild application
This is an application to one of the Professional Guilds of Loathing. You should take it to the Council in the Seaside Town. Item that has no use. Maybe once used as a different way to enter the Guild Hall?

Changed Graphics

Though old files are typically overwritten or deleted when their images are redrawn, there are several cases where the old image remains in the database, leaving it completely unused.

Knob Goblin King

Old New
:[ He looks sad. >:( He looks angry now.

The Knob Goblin King was redrawn in a different style, removing his neck in the process.

Interestingly, the filename for the old Demoninja image is Demonninja. The new filename is spelled correctly.

The Valley of Rof L'm Fao

Old New
Is that a-? That's better.

According to Mr Skullhead, co-creator of Kingdom of Loathing: Jick maintains that the Valley is not, in fact, intended to resemble a part of the female anatomy. Originally, when you used the bridge, you got a new picture that looked even more like female anatomy, complete with mountains that looked like knees up in the air and a well-placed tree at the cleft where they met. However, Jick got tired of people snickering and took the picture out.


Old New
Kol-Soda.gif Kol-Sodafinal.gif

The Dyspepsi-Cola's item graphic was changed to be darker, and include a graphic on it that is totally not the Pepsi logo.

Cheshire Bat

Old New
Isn't it cute? 2spooky

The Cheshire Bat familiar's icon was changed to be the same icon as its hatchling.

Profile Picture

Old New
Kol-Playerpic.gif Kol-Playerpicfinal.gif

While on a player's profile, the old version of this graphic indicated that the player had a picture on the "KoL Player Pics Page". However, not many people realized that it was actually a link; therefore, it was changed to a small picture frame, and now has the text This player has a picture on the KoL Player Pics Page accompanied next to it.

Pixel Items

Old New
Kol-Colorpix.gif Color Pixel family portrait!
Old New
Kol-Blackpix.gif Black Pixel family portrait!

The Black and Brown Pixel were given unique item graphics. The same goes for the Blue, Red, and Green Pixels.
