Each tribute is permitted to bring something with them into The Hunger Games that represents their district and remind them of home which will be used as a token. Tokens will be confiscated if they break the rules of the Games, as will anything that can be used as an advantage. A token is usually something that can be worn so the tributes may keep it with them easily.
The concept of a tribute token is seemingly eliminated from The Hunger Games film, as it is shown that Cinna sneaks the pin in.
The 50th Hunger Games
- Mockingjay pin - Maysilee Donner, District 12; later used by Katniss Everdeen during the 74th and 75th Hunger Games
The 74th Hunger Games
Tokens brought to the 74th Hunger Games
- Ring - Glimmer, District 1; this ring was taken away from her before the Games began once the review board realized that twisting the gemstone caused a poisoned spike to pop out. She claimed she had no clue about this, but it was still taken away, it is the only known confiscated token.
- Mockingjay pin; almost taken as the sharp part of the pin could be used as a weapon but managed to make it through - Katniss Everdeen, District 12
The 75th Hunger Games
- Mockingjay pin - Katniss Everdeen, District 12
- Mockingjay medallion, modeled after pin (also a secret locket, which contained a picture of Gale smiling, and Katniss's mother, along with Prim.) - Peeta Mellark, District 12 (Later given to Katniss, as a gift)
- Gold bangle with flame pattern - Finnick Odair, District 4 (first seen on Haymitch). Haymitch gave it to Finnick to tell Katniss to make him an ally, as he could later help her in the games.
- Wooden ball - Girl from unknown district; the ball was dropped onto the ground before the gong sounded and she was blasted into pieces by the landmine. She had to be literally scraped off the ground to be taken back in the hovercraft.
