Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Adds a golden tear every 20 tears fired, which causes enemies to turn gold and freeze for a few seconds (similar to Midas' Touch Midas' TouchMidas' Touch Icon.pngEnemies that touch you are stunned and turn gold. Any enemy killed while in this state will drop a coin.) at the cost of one penny. Golden tears can still be fired if Isaac has no money.
    • Unlike other tear effects, golden tears are fired alongside regular tears rather than replacing a regular tear.
    • With multi-shot abilities, whichever tear is the 20th since previous will produce the additional golden tear.
    • The golden tear deals 2x normal damage.
    • Enemies killed while golden will drop 1-4 pennies.
