The Cap Gun is a weapon that looks identical to the Dart Gun, but behaves differently. In the PC version of the game, It kills anything in one shot, even if they possess the Invincible adjective or is otherwise unable to be killed or removed, with the sole exception of Lily at Edwin's Farm. It can even destroy a Black Hole in one shot. In the 3DS version of the game, it is completely harmless, and cannot destroy anything.

The projectiles that the Cap Gun fires are particularly strange. When you fire on screen (When not attacking a certain object) it will not fire any projectiles also, it can pass through walls and platforms. It can only kill when you click certain object and attack it. When opened up in the object editor, it is revealed that they aren't any object at all, which may mean that the projectiles it fires are more deeply coded into the game than the projectiles fired by other weapons.

Using the Cap Gun to crash the game

You can crash the game using a Cap Gun in Scribblenauts Unlimited. Proceed to Ruins of Ellipsis and start the Starite quest "Scribblequest". Give the Warrior a Sharp Cap Gun. Give the Rogue a regular Cap Gun. Give the Warlock a Magical Cap Gun. Give the Cleric a Healing Cap Gun.

Now when the group goes to attack the Dragon, they kill it as soon as the rogue takes his turn. The Warrior doesn't kill the dragon as he doesn't actually fire the gun, he instead uses it as a melee weapon.

The game does not expect this, and crashes after the Warlock has made their Meteor attack. This would normally be the point at which the Dragon breathes fire at the team.  

In Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure it does not do any damage least a one shot kill.
