Nicalis, Capcom and THQ has published most of these games

Some may be quite literal joke items, such as appearing extremely important so players will keep them around in hopes of using them, but such use never comes. Or the other kind of literal joke item that are used to perform practical jokes on people but have insignificant or absurd effects.
