I am wondering if assets made for rpg maker that doesn't use any of the rpg maker features (such as tilesets made by others) can be used in other things such as game maker studio

Look at the terms of use for each asset. But any edits of RTP materials CANNOT be used in other game making programs.

only if they obey a number of heavy restrictions

1) they cannot contain edits of any RTP that come with any maker. Those are absolutely forbidden outside the makers, and a lot of people include edits because as long as they are used inside the RM restrictions they are free to use if you own the RM they came from.

2) if they contain shop DLC it depends on the pack and its terms.
There are a few packs available for sale that can be used outside the makers, and they specifically state that this is allowed. And even then you have to follow the rest of the TOS like encryption required which not all other game makers can do.

There are very few free resources out there that were made for the Makers but do not use any RTP or DLC, remaining free of those limitations. But if you find them and follow their terms, then it can be done.
