Not really an item but it piss me off in alpha protocol it offer to save last checkpoint, which was quite useless. I think Ninja blade did it too.

The potion one is so true, lol! Deathspank is the most recent example of my potion hording. I mean, I never even use them (except for a very select few boss battles), since you have regular food to heal with.
