Key Items are items that are needed in order for you to progress in either the main storyline or in a side quest. Each one can only be obtained once from a specific person in a specific place. The Key Items cannot be used like a normal item, instead the Key Item will activate itself and start a cut scene when you have completed the required actions.
Key items come in two types: inventory items and Biteable Objects. There are also two types of Inventory Items, required items which are needed to progress in the main storyline and optional Key Items which are only needed to complete a specific storyline.
Key Items can be viewed under the Tools Category of the fan menu, however they cannot be used only selected to view a description.
