Duster's Thief Tools are key items that appear in Mother 3. They are usable via his special command as early as Chapter 1.

The Wall Staples are available from the moment Duster is introduced, and the Rope Snake is obtained in Chapter 2 from ghosts inside of Osohe Castle. The rest of the Thief Tools are given to Duster by Wess prior to his trip into the castle.
