In Final Fantasy Tactics, Thieves can gain the ability: Secret Hunt, which effectively lets them Poach enemies. Poached enemies, when killed by a character with Secret Hunt, will give extra item(s) to the player. Here’s how you can create this effect for RPG Maker MV!

<After Eval>
// Check if the user is an actor, target is an enemy, and the target has been slain.
if (user.isActor() && target.isEnemy() && (target.isDead() || target.hp <= 0)) {
  // Get the ID of the target.
  var id = target.enemyId();
  // Create an empty pool for the list of possible items.
  var pool = [];
  // Add items to the global pool.
  // If the enemy ID is 1...
  if (id === 1) {
    // ...then add unique items to the possible pool.
  // If the enemy ID is 2...
  } else if (id === 2) {
    // ...then add unique items to the possible pool.
  // If the enemy ID is 3...
  } else if (id === 3) {
    // ...then add unique items to the possible pool.
  // Get a random item from the pool.
  var item = pool[Math.floor(Math.random() * pool.length)];
  // Make sure the item is valid.
  if (item) {
    // Play an animation on the target.
    // Remove the target's immortality.
    // Play a sound effect.
    // Make the player party gain the said item.
    $gameParty.gainItem(item, 1);
    // Create a message indicating the item has been poached.
    var msg = '<CENTER>' + user.name() + ' acquired \\i[' + item.iconIndex + ']' + item.name + ' from ' + target.name() + '!';
    // Set the wait frames to 60.
    var wait = 60;
    // Make the BattleManager display the text.
    BattleManager.addText(msg, wait);
</After Eval>

Happy poaching!
