Nonsensical gear

Video game concept

The equipment characters take makes no sense, usually by wearing or wielding unusually large number of same type of items such as 3 swords or 2 breast plates.


Name variations: nonsensical equipment

The first video game about Nonsensical gear was released in 2003.

Valve has published all these games

Note that this tag does not apply if the character in question actually does have the body parts to use the items on.

One possible explanation for the oddity is that the "power" of the items is somehow magically infused to the character and thus they don't really use the items themselves. Similar to how magical trinkets usually work, but instead of trinkets this is about the actual items.
