The Ruler is an item that appears in EarthBound Beginnings and EarthBound. The item serves no real purpose, and will only produce text stating that the user can "figure out the lengths of things easily". In EarthBound Beginnings, the item gives the description "It is 12 inches long".

In EarthBound Beginnings, the ruler is found on the top level of the Department Store in Merrysville.

In EarthBound, the ruler is found in Jeff's inventory when he first joins the party, and can be bought from a boy near the southwest end of the Burglin Park in Twoson for $2. The New Age Retro Hippie also uses one in battle to waste a turn, and may drop one when defeated. In the caves of Talah Rama there is a Monkey which ask for a Ruler, and upon giving it, she will move and let you progress further in the caves.
