Thingy detail.png

The "Thingy" was the name of seven unobtainable items that could previously be found in the game cache. Originally, they had the appearance of a Sapphire amulet, and the internal name "Strung sapphire amulet 7" giving no clues as to their purpose.

The items were most likely created as placeholders for content that was scrapped or removed, since items can only be replaced once added rather than deleted. It is possible they were related somehow to an aspect of Barbarian Assault.

In RuneScape, the item briefly became viewable in the Grand Exchange. When asked about this, a Jagex Moderator claimed the item was a joke:

...Content Development often add little jokes to their updates. Sometimes we're told about them before they're added to the game. Occasionally, they believe that it would be more amusing to just add them without telling us. Then we get lots of messages asking what a 'Thingy' is...

The Thingys were gradually removed from the game, with the last being replaced by a Healer icon in 2019. As a result, they have never been obtainable in Old School RuneScape.
