Simply, a simple key. It will fit a variety of locks, which is useful if you like to poke around in places you don't belong.


  • The sprite for the Simple Key is called the "graveyard key" and both a "Bath house key" and "Waterways key" exist in the game files implying that Jiji/Jinn's cave, the Pleasure House, and the Royal Waterways were each originally planned to be opened by these unique keys.
