This is a thread to discuss the weirdest things you need (or atleast will be very useful) to complete a gamebook. Which was the oddest? Which was the most silly? Which was your favourite?
Note: Potions, Keys, Weapons, Magical Jewels and anything else that would be obviously useful like a rope do not count. They have to be things that you probably wouldn't take if you were doing the adventure for real and have no real purpose until you randomly need it.

A couple from PDE books:
Portal of Evil requires you to be wandering around with a couple of caged songbirds. Even as pets go, they would seem unusually unhelpful to take on an adventure. (I can't remember whether it's possible to acquire them without knowing their purpose though.)
Spectral Stalkers has you picking up a variety of weird crap, including various items which are just vaguely roundish such as wheel hubs and inn signs. One in particular – a toy clown in a glass ball – can make all the difference if you get captured when nearing Globus.
______________ SotS has you picking up a fragment of antler for no very obvious reason, which is crucial if you're on the path that that appears.
