Yup. I have a Ryobi tool and used these with it. The blades are universal.

Somebody please tell me why the price of reciprocating blades is so tiny as compared to oscillating blades, where the cutting edge is much smaller.

Grabbed these last time. Haven't used every one of them yet but so far they slice through 4x4, branches, and cardboard pretty nicely

I went through a set of these last year, didn't care for them. Each went dull within a few minutes on every project I tried to use them on. Per Project Farm's recommendation I'm using Milwaukee Sawzall blades and while I haven't had any major projects yet, the blades feel sturdier.

I had tons of problems with the Bosch blades bending while I was using them, so I'll pass on this one.

this is only theory, but recip blades get used a lot more and it becomes an economy of scale. anecdotal, but i go through 5-10 recip blades before i go through one oscillating. i know a few people with oscillating, where as i dont know a single tool person that doesnt have a recip saw.

manufacturing wisse, there is a lot less waste in stamping out 10x 1"x8" recip blades out of a sheet of metal, but oscillating blades are a much more complicated shape with a lot more waste.

Sort of a 2 part answer.
First, some oscillating blades have proprietary fittings (unlike blades like these where are universal). There ARE universal fittings, but tool manufacturers are reluctant on making their own blades readily accessible (ex: Bosch).
Second, the application. Blades for oscillating tools are thinner and have a MUCH higher motion than even a jigsaw. The material has to therefore withstand that friction/abuse. This requires additional tooling which contributes to the additional cost.

TLDR: Greedy manufacturers and increased difficulty to make

I got a bundle of oscillating blades off eBay for cheap. Like a buck a blade although some are useless (scraping blades). They seem to perform decently well, although I didn't get the style that fit my system, had to use an adapter, and it doesn't work very well (keeps loosening after a minute or two). Will be more careful to get the ones that fit my PC. I use my oscillating and recip Saw for different purposes

These are decent for DIY home improvement use. I have used them and it's nice to have a few extra wood+nail blades in the drawer.

As an alternative if you want Dewalt, this 6 pack is also on sale:
