This article contains information obtained from the game APIs or cache.
The content may not be currently accessible in game, or may be reserved for use in a future update.

Unobtainable items are items that exist within the game's code, but cannot ever be obtained by players via normal gameplay. These items are usually found by extracting information via the game's cache. Some items are found in game, or within certain interfaces, but cannot be placed into the inventory.

These items, like all other items, have an ID number assigned to it.

Item IDs may change over certain updates, and may fill unused IDs that are considered null. Certain items used exclusively may be removed from the game and their item IDs relabeled as "Null", which are represented in the cache as pink skirts.

Never released[edit | edit source]

These items have never appeared in the game in any form. Usually, they are items leftover from content that was significantly altered or removed during development, making them useless.

Joke items[edit | edit source]

Other items could never be made into banknotes to begin with, yet nevertheless an ID slot was taken up by a null item where the noted form would have been. In 2005, these empty slots were filled by items with humorous names and descriptions that all bizarrely had the appearance of a Pink skirt. Players who attempted to either spawn or view the items using illegal hacking software would be given a Hex edit detected instead. In Runescape, these items would later become viewable in the Quick Chat interface causing much confusion.
