Item World is an alternate dimension deep within every object demons create. Even the simplest piece of candy has a land filled with demons, traps, pirates, and most importantly, treasure. Every floor you clear makes the item stronger and more resilient. As the item gets more power, so does the enemies.
Every ten floors, the area is inhabited by the richest and most powerful demon; the item tyrant. Each item tyrant is decked out in powerful gear, is several levels above the rest of the floor enemies, and has a distinct title, depending on the floor it inhabits. The possible titles are: Item General, Item King, and Item God. Item Generals appear on floors 10, 20, 40, 50, 70, and 80. Item Kings reign on floors 30, 60, and 90. Item Gods live on floor 100. There is also an Item God 2, which appears on the 100th floor of Rank 40 items and is doubly as powerful. By killing an item tyrant, the parameters of the item raise considerably.
Not every item has the same number of floors, normal items only have 30 floors, rare items have 60, and legendary items hold 100 floors. Every floor cleared will result in the item gaining a level, which makes it more powerful. Although you can't increase the number of floors, you can get bonus levels through the use of mystery gates, as detailed later.
At the end of every 10 floors, there is a random chance that you will be given the option to enter Innocent Town. Innocent Town is a special floor where there are no battles to be fought. Instead, you can recover, return to Holt Village (or the Land of Carnage), and even power up the item in the Item Assembly by speaking to the resident Chicken (Roc), but he does not always appear.
In addition to this, there are a few extra things to do. Sometimes Innocent Town may hold Axel or a Prinny. If you find and talk to these characters several times (five for Axel and ten for the Prinny), the demon gives you an item.
 Mystery Gates
Mystery gates are surprises dotted throughout an item world. They may have shops, treasure, or ambushes from predatory demons; although the exact nature of a mystery gate is just that, a mystery, since the contents inside is completely random. Mystery gates are also a handy stopping point where you can equip newly found items and rearrange your item bag.
Many of the inhabitants of Mystery Gates are friendly merchants willing to sell visitors items and services not normally found in the other RosenQueen Branches. Unlike other Netherworld branches, Item World merchants are known for their hot temper; by talking to the merchant several times, the demon will get fed up and fight you.

Sometimes, you may find yourself face to face with pirates; special enemies that arrive during the first three rounds (usually) of a battle in Item World. These pirates are stronger than the other monsters on the level and may even have treasure chests on their ship. More importantly, they hold a piece of a Treasure Map. Once you collect the sixteen pieces, you can get into the Land of Carnage.
There are several different types of pirates, but some can not be found until you're on a high enough floor; they are the following:
|Pirate Name||Level Found||Comes With|
|Ambling Pirates||1+||1 High Level Sinner, appears frequently|

- 1. The unsubdued specialists will be first those that came with your item. If you've subdued all specialists in your item, and you have extra POP, it will come with random specialists, not surpassing the maximum POP level of your item.
- 2. Comes with a Yellow Mystery Gate and a special Red Mystery Gate. The Yellow acts as a normal Mystery Gate, where the Red acts as a special Dimensional gate that warps you up to the next 10th floor (I.E., if you were on floor 61, you would teleport up to floor 70).
- 3. All pirates are wearing shoes in all three slots.
Also, there are two more specific types of pirates which do not hold a piece of the treasure map. They are:
|Pirate Name||Level Found||Comes With|
|Baal Pirates||91+||4 Baal, Only Appears after you Open the Land of Carnage|
|Prinny Baal Pirates||91+||Takes place of Prinny Pirates, Defeating grants Adell the title "Lord Master" and raises Prinny Baal's stats by 3x in the Land of Carnage.|
