Most roguelikes allow the player to have an inventory of items to use at his/her convenience. The way the inventory work differs quite a lot between different games.

The inventory is in most roguelikes represented as a list of items, sometimes categorized by item type. Some roguelikes limit the inventory to a specific number of items while others limit the inventory to a specific weight or volume of items carried (based on the character's strength).

In some games there is no difference between the players inventory and the wielded/worn equipment while others have one list for the inventory and one for the equipment.
