An Error Item is any item whose internal ID number doesn't match a valid item ID number in the game's underlying data file: ObjectInformation.xnb. Error items have no associated item data (price, energy, health, description, etc.) and thus default to purchase/sell prices of Gold.png0g and descriptions reading "???". An Error Item will display the image matching the item ID's position in the spritesheet Maps\springobjects.xnb, which might be a non-item image (like a mine stone, sparkle effect, etc).

Prior to game version 1.5, error Items could be generated by using the item ID glitch with invalid IDs.

It is not used in any bundles.


It is not used in any quests.


  • Version 1.0 of the game did not allow the player to enter brackets [ ], so generating Error Items was not possible.
  • Prior to version 1.2, the loaf of bread pictured above was the only naturally occurring Error Item. It could be found in The Saloon's menu and the garbage can outside the Saloon.


  • 1.5: Invalid item IDs no longer spawn an Error Item.
