The Spade Key (スペードのカギ supēdo no kagi?) is a key item in Resident Evil 2. It appears as a large silver and blue-green key with the handle shaped like a spade.


It is used in the Raccoon Police Station to unlock the Reference room and a corridor on floor 2F.[1]


The key can be obtained in the main hall of the Raccoon Police Department after placing the Unicorn Medal at the fountain.
