    I was making a item that summons a party member, and want him to be removed when the battle ends. How would I do that, since it would be more complicated than adding the party member and giving him a state (which will not work, unless the state would delete him after the battle ends).

    Is he only being summoned in a specific battle? Or is it an item that can be used in any given battle to summon a new party member?

    you could try making your item activate a common event  and inside that common event, just change party member to include the character you want. when the battle ends, you can remove the character with a normal event after the battle..

    It is for any fight, not just a boss fight.

    Yes, it is an item that can be used in any battle that can summon a party member for just that turn.

    Try this - use an item to call a common event to add an actor to the party:

    And another common event (running as a parallel process) to remove the actor when the battle ends:
