Useless key detail.png

The useless key is an unobtainable item released alongside A Taste of Hope, created to replace the discontinued shortcut key. Two versions of the key were created to replace the standard, and bank placeholder, versions of the shortcut key. While the useless key was never meant to be seen by players, it inadvertently became visible as the bank placeholders were not wiped from the game.[1] Therefore, any players who had created a bank placeholder of the shortcut key saw the useless key takes its place.

The placeholders were removed over a year later in an update on 13 June 2019.
