DISCLAIMER: If there's a thread like this made between Ultimate's announcement and now, please point me in the direction of that thread. This thread's intention is not to rip off any others.

Anyways, this thread's title speaks for itself. Got any new ideas for items? Just drop 'em here. Ready? GO!

Campfire: Spawns cooked food and sometimes even Fire Flowers or Fire Bars. Can he thrown at opponents to cause damage.

Wario Bomb (WarioWare): Takes about 10 seconds to explode, which is signaled by "3-2-1" above it.

Toothbrush: Can be used to hit an opponent up to eight times at once until it breaks.

Electric Shield (Sonic 3): Gives fighters an extra jump, as well as Immunity to electric attacks.

Picnic Basket: Spawns food whenever hit.

Laser (Star Fox): Similar to the Ray Gun, but can charge a powerful shot that homes in on the closest foe.

I have 1 idea

It involves the plants from Plants vs Zombies, with the items being the plant seeds.

One you use them, they will spawn a random plant or mushroom to fight back against the enemies

A few examples being Pea Shooter and relatives (shoots out peas), Squash (slams opponents), Potato Mine, Jalapeño, Doom Shroom and Cherry Bomb (explodes in the enemies faces), Pults (launch produce at opponents) and Cactus (shoots needles at opponents). This would be only half of those examples of the ones listed.

That is all I got, but I'll come up with more ideas

Breidablik as the FE counterpart of Pokeballs. Black Knight, Tiki and Lyn are moved to Breidablik summons.

Autobomb (Splatoon): The user throws the auto bomb onto the ground. Once the Autobomb hits the ground, it will search for opponents in a small radius. 1: If it finds one, it will pursue them for a few seconds. Once that time runs out, or if no opponent is found, it will stand still for roughly a second and explode. The explosion will leave all targets in the blast (besides the player who threw it and any allies if team attack is off) inked. If hit hard enough, it will explode with no one having thrown it.

I always thought the Ultra Hand would be cool. It would give the user an extra long command grab that works on the ground and in the air, and would all the user to tether recover as well.
Also, if we were to get Elder Scrolls content in the game, the Wabbajack would be cool. It would fire a magic burst that has a random effect.

The fact that the Ray Gun isnt a NES Zapper and that the Ultra Hand isnt an item is a crime within itself.

Tarantula or Scorpion (Assist Trophy - Animal Crossing)
If bitten or stung, you will become dazed. Tarantula will jump if you try jumping away from it, although once it falls off the stage, it won't return. Scorpion, on the other hand, will not jump, but will return to the stage if it falls off. Both are very quick.

Grapple Beam (Item - Metroid)
Similar to Screw Attack, once you pick up the item, your grab button will allow you to perform a tether grab or even use a grapple aerial (z-air) to attack your opponent(s) at a distance for a limited time.

Boo Buddies (Assist Trophy - Mario)
Once activated, Boo Buddies will appear in the area where they're released, dealing damage to any opponent who walks into them.

Hover Boots (Item - The Legend of Zelda)
These boots will allow you to run off the stage and levitate for a few seconds, letting you perform grounded attacks in the air. However, jumping will immediately negate this effect. Traction will be slightly reduced, though it won't be as noticeable as Luigi's.

Fruit (Item - Animal Crossing)
Eating this fruit (apple, cherry, coconut, orange, peach, or pear) will reduce damage and increase attack power.

Shockwave Grenade: can be thrown to send opponents and yourself flying. Great for edgeguarding, recovery, and keeping opponents at a distance

Beast Ball (the actual thing, not some flaming baseball): Exclusively summons Ultra Beasts. (UBs can spawn from regular Pokeballs and Master Balls as well)

Teleporter (Team Fortress 2):

Spawns in up to 2 sets of 2 (one set is RED, the other is BLU). Anything that ends up on top of it is teleported to the other one of the same color. After something uses the teleporter: fighter, summon or item, the teleporter cannot be used again for a few seconds.

I was so angry when there was an item called "beast ball" and yet all the UBs got combined was a single PNG file. Speaking of which, Perkilator Perkilator are we allowed to make summons that come from summon-type items or should we keep it to just the items themselves?

Potion from Pokemon should've been the teammate healing item IMO. After all, the trainers don't use potions on themselves, only on their team.

The abandoned set of Drop Dead Fred (1991)
Punch Gun (Rockin' Kats)
- gives everyone a Zair which functions as both a tether and an attack. Additionally replaces Smash Attack.

Atom (Bubsy)
- a throwable item you can charge the throw of, the more you charge the further it'll go and more powerful it'll be when it explodes - however, if you charge it too long it'll blow up in your face, leaving you dizzy


Teddy Bear (EarthBound)
- literally just the Back Shield with a different look

Bobbin (Sonic)
- yet again, Bumper with a different look

Sonic/Eggman Monitor (Sonic)
- alternates between Eggman and Sonic, if you hit it as Sonic all your damage will be healed, if you hit it as Eggman, your damaged will be doubled

Sugary Drink (original) - a risk and reward item, temporarily heals a lot of damage, but gives back half of the healed damage later in the brawl at random, with the only way to avoid the damage being losing your stock before it comes back.

Elder Kettle's Brew (Cuphead)
- drink it to replace your jab with Cuphead's iconic finger guns. They run out with time, not ammo, so try to get the most out of it! Your model is flattened and gets a black outline, so you should be able to figure out when it runs out. You can blast while running, but you have to start shooting before running, otherwise you'll just do your dash attack.

Puyos (Puyo Puyo)
- one big Puyo will appear on stage, and small ones will appear afterwards - throw the small ones into the big one, making them part of the big one. Once there are 4 Puyos in a row, a powerful but non-deadly explosion will befall all opponents of the one who placed the final Puyo.

Aku Aku and Uka Uka (Crash Bandicoot) -
Appear in a box, when you release one you'll take no damage for the next 3 hits you get, through you'll still get knockback - they do protect unconditionally from self-damage (Pichu) and other non-knockback dealing damage (Fox's blaster) through. Aku Aku appears for heroes and neutrals, Uka Uka appears for villains, and both have an equal chance of appearing for anti-heroes like Wario. There's a weird glitch where Uka Uka shows up for Lucas' orange haired alt... what's up with that?

Mario's Kart
works like Wario's bike

Virus Bottle
When you hit an opponent with a virus bottle, viruses circle around them dancing back and forth, draining the person';s energy and making their attacks weaker until it wears off.

SpreadShot.jpg
Spreadshot
Give you a gun that fires in a spread pattern

tumblr_pn7ir8Y5qF1rz3o0k_540.gif
Arthur's Armor
Give you a metal-like form. While wearing this, you won't take damage. It breaks and shatters after taking the equivalent of 50% damage

314428-action_3.jpg

Shadow Clone Technique
Gives you an orange duplicate of your fighter that follows you around mirroring your movements. Lasts until you die.

Invfire.png
Riwheel.png


Invisible Firewheel
Temporarily surrounds you with rotating fireballs that deal damage if touched, also they block most projectile attacks

MSR_RoS_Gallery_031.png

IceBeam
Can fire small rapid shots that deal damage or can be charged up to fire a large shot that freezes opponent in place

Eternal-darkness-4.png

Tome of Eternal Darkness
Greatly increases the power of the person that picks it up and causes random effects on the field (teleporting plays, blacking out screen, inverting controls, flipping screen, or transforming players into metal, small, giant, or invincible forms)

And then everyone has to keep social distance, so the game becomes projectiles only (yes, characters like DK, Ganondorf or Marth, are screwed).

My 2 big Item Ideas are the Wisps from Sonic there could be different multiple different types that emulate their effects from Sonic Colors

My Other one is The Breidablik, It is the thing that summons characters in Fire Emblem Heroes and it could function as a Pokeball just for fire emblem characters.

If Scorpion gets in, a regular skull is iconic to MK and would function similar to Peach's turnips and turtle shells. Its an instant shield breaker. Shao Kahn's hammer would be hilarious.

Phoenix Down: Prevents the holder from losing a life/point.

Devil Axe: Deals great damage with each swing, but causes an SD on the 5th successful swing (a warning for which comes on the 4th successful swing).

Context Sensitive Pad (Conker’s Bad Fur Day)

Container item that appears exclusively with stage morph on. Gives you a reusable, basic but powerful projectile relevant to that stage, which becomes weak when the stage changes.

Syrup’s Lamp (Wario Land)

Throwable item that creates a floating platform every time it lands, it it hits an enemy the platform stays out longer.

The Candle from Legend of Zelda: Immediately after picking up this item, you send out a single fireball that travels forward a short distance before halting, remaining wherever it lands (even in the air). Whoever touches it (item user included) is knocked upward and receives fire damage. I do not know if Darkrai or other screen blackening elements are in Ultimate, but if they are, then the candle would reverse the effect. It would also otherwise brighten the screen anyway.
