DS Daily: That special stylus

From swords to ... uh, more swords, we've seen quite a few special styli in our day. Some are colorful and some are extendable, but the stylus gift is pretty common with DS games. Do you own any special edition styli? Do you wish you did? If so, which ones? And we're not talking about just any random stylus here, though there are plenty of awesome DS accessories, but those specifically designed for (or that come with) certain games.

A friend who went to E3 brought me the Mario Kart stylus which was given out to promote the game. I also own a Dailga stylus from the Pokemon game.

Does the special 7-Rainbow-Styli set you got from the Brain Age 2 survey count? :)

If so, I have those and the Feather Stylus from Phantom Hourglass.

I've got the pink Kirby stylus that came as a giveaway for registering Canvas Curse, and the extendable Castlevania special edition one from Portrait of Ruin.

Why, oh why must you remind me of the Canada-only Future Store exclusive? Available, yes, but not to those of us south of the border. As for special styli(styluses, whatever, even Nintendo don't know XD), I have accumulated several. The Death Jr. scythe stylus, the Dialga topped stylus from Pokemon(Couldn't get the Palkia one sadly), the quill from LoZ:PH, the objection hand from Phoenix Wright, and I shall be getting the katana stylus with my preorder. I also have a shuriken shaped DS-phat stylus shell they sold in Japan, although I don't know if that really counts. As for ones I wish I had...Palkia-topped stylus and the Rockman.exe buster sword stylus.

I have the feather, but I don't care about custom styli at all. I like the one that fits in the system, call me crazy.

I have the feather stylus, but I agree with Brello. I prefer styli that fit in the ds.

I got the wand stylus that came with Orcs and Elves. Strangely enough, my friends who got the game didn't get a stylus in theirs, but all the games were only 20 dollars. Limited thing only put in some packages maybe?

I want to get the feather stylus for buying LoZ:PH, but it doesn't seem to be available. I got the Zelda SE DS Lite for Christmas. Last time I saw anything about it on the site it said that the survey to fill out was "Not Available". Now I can't even find it on there. :(

I bought myself a DS Lite for Christmas. Or rather, I bought myself a DS near Christmas, since I rather hate the holidays. I bought Phantom Hourglass and Brain Age 2 at the same time, (partly) because I knew (I did my research!) that nintendo was doing free styli give aways with em. However when I registered them I found out that the surveys were down. They still are! I've checked
every day to see if they're back up, but they're not! I feel a little cheated.

So because of that... The only special DS stylus I have is one that came with Pirates of the Carribean:At World's End. It was on sale for $20 at Walmart and the stylus was an exclusive to them as well. So I got it. Wish I hadn't. The game sucks. So does the stylus. It's too fat to go into the compartment built into the DS, and the Skull/cross bones thing on the end is painted BADLY. Oh well. I'm sure eventually I'll get in on some COOL stylus action.
