"Maybe find some coin!"

The Taranchula Black Metal Detector was produced by Videlectrix Kidx as a consolation prize on children's game shows. It is officially endorsed by Schenkel McDoo, who suggests that it could be used to "maybe find some coin!" It increasingly flashes a red light and gradually builds up a beat to an elaborate rock piece as it gets closer to metal. Strong Bad tried to use it to find ancient ruins, but he only managed to detect bottle caps and tin foil. Strong Bad also states that when he used it indoors, it microwaved Strong Mad's eyebrows off.

In Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People, Strong Bad can use the same metal detector to find various conspicuously non-metallic items hidden underground. In Homestar Ruiner, it comes with treasure markers to help Strong Bad remember where to dig after he steals one of The Poopsmith's shovels. To shorten the time frame in subsequent episodes between finding an object and unearthing it, the detector comes with a built-in shovel attachment that Strong Bad collects at the same time as the detector.
