That's right, from Adventure Island to Zelda and everything inbetween, of all video games of all time, what is the NUMBER ONE BEST ITEM from any game??
Feel free to post a runner-up, but only one. Don't get all excessive and be like this one is great that one is awesome etc.
It can be any item, equippable or not, from any game.
Obviously the #1 for me is
But after that I'd have to say
Which is also found in Metroid as the Grappling Beam
Also you could consider the Ninja rope in worms an extension of the same device, but I digress.
Also any weapon from Megaman (Especially X-X3) is automatically the best ever above anything else, but I digress again.
GO GO POWER RANGERS
(Oh yeah and the Frying Pan and Chain Chomp weapons from MarioRPG gets honorable mention. Also the hurly gloves)
