The Stick is a weapon item equipped at the beginning of the game. Its defensive counterpart is the bandage. It provides no statistical improvement, yet it can be used against certain enemies with differing results.
- Using the stick against any dog enemy (including Endogeny) immediately ends the fight.
- If used against Papyrus, he fetches it.
- Using it against Madjick makes them think of the protagonist as a fellow wizard, making it spareable.
- Using it during Mettaton's fight rewards 700 rating points.
- If used during the final stage of the fight, when he has been reduced to just his head and torso, the reward is 1400 rating points instead.
- However, if used more than once, it only gives 1 rating point.
