Rare Item Monday (commonly abbreviated as "RIM") is an event where a "Rare" version of an existing item or a whole new item is sold for one day only. This event was first introduced on February 6, 2012, and typically occurs on every Monday of each week. Most of the items released are members-only clothing, but many are non-member clothing items, and very few are den items.
The first few items released for Rare Item Monday did not include the "Rare" badge. This was changed for new releases in March 2012 and the older releases were given the badge later in 2012.
Some items formerly sold in the Beta Stage were brought back later with the "Rare" symbol for Rare Item Monday such as the Glove and Fox Hat.
Usually items sold for Rare Item Monday are only sold that day, but sometimes an item is released early or remains available for longer.
Some items released for Rare Item Monday have remained in stores for the entire week such as the Rare Backpack and the Rare Knitted Sweater.
Items released for Rare Item Monday can often be obtained as random prizes in some Adventures after they are no longer sold in stores.
Sometimes, before a Rare Item Monday item is officially announced or released, it can be won as a prize in The Forgotten Desert.
Some items have been released multiple times for Rare Item Monday such as the Rare Cupcake Hat, Glove, and Fox Hat.
Typically, these items are more expensive than their non-"Rare" counterparts.
Some items that have a rare badge were not sold as part of Rare Item Monday, such as the Rare Spiked Collar, the Rare Founders' Hat, the Nature Archway, and many others.
A couple of items were sold during Rare Item Monday with many color variations, all of which included a rare tag, such as the Rare Glove and the Rare Fox Hat.
The Rare Custom Top Hat is the first Diamond Rare Item Monday.
Most Rare Item Monday releases of a weapon accessory do not provide any additional damage in the Adventures even if their non-rare counterpart does provide extra damage.
The Rare Old Winter Boots and the Rare Snowflake Tiara did not have an advertisement on The Daily Explorer.
After May 6, 2019, The Daily Explorer has since stopped posting item artwork of each Rare Item Monday, and has instead been posting artwork of a box with "Rare Item Monday" labeled on.
