Jar of Flies
Effects[edit | edit source]
- Killing an enemy adds a fly to the jar, up to a maximum of 20.
- Upon use, releases Blue Flies equal to the number of flies in the jar.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Kills by blue flies and locusts (including flies from the jar) and shooting familiars (including Incubus) do not add flies to the jar.
- Blue spiders, orbital familiars, and chasing familiars do add flies to the jar.
- Friendly enemies such as from the Friendly Ball add flies to the jar, but not those spawned from other enemies.
- Batteries do not affect the number of flies in the jar.
- Enemies must be actually killed to add a fly; transformations (such as Gapers turning into Pacers) or knockouts (such as incapacitating a Globin) do not count as kills.
- Destroying a Shopkeeper will count a kill.
- With items that kill normally unkillable enemies, killing things like Stone Grimaces will add flies to the jar.
- Killing minions in the Hush fight does not add flies to the jar.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The item's pickup quote references the tagline of the Pokémon games.
- With Booster Pack #2, this item's sprite fills up with more flies depending on how many flies it contains. This is based off of this Steam Workshop mod by Stewartisme.
- The item is likely a reference to the Alice In Chains album of the same name.
