Luck Stat Icon.png Luck affects a variety of chance-based effects and is represented by a 3-leaf clover.

Effects of luck[edit | edit source]

Luck influences many different elements:

  • Room drops: Higher Luck gives a higher chance on drops after clearing rooms, going up to 100% guaranteed drops on any room at around 3-4 Luck in Normal Mode, and less than 10 Luck on Hard Mode.
    • The chance of chest drops is also greatly increased (and gives chests nearly every time when combined with Guppy's Tail Guppy's Tail ).
  • Tear effect chance: The chance of shooting tears with status effects becomes more likely as Luck goes up. This scales up to 100% chance per tear in most cases with enough Luck.
    • Most of the status inflicting effects require a very unlikely high number of Luck to activate on every tear.
      • Since these effects persist on the enemies for a set amount of time regardless of the Tears stat, a fast rate of fire is often enough to affect an enemy indefinitely.
    • Other items affected by Luck include:
      • Virgo Virgo : The shield activation chance increases with Luck, topping out at 100% at 10 Luck.
      • Gimpy Gimpy : The Soul Heart/Black Heart drop chance upon taking damage increases with higher Luck, topping out at 50% at 22 Luck.
      • Celtic Cross Celtic Cross : The Celtic Cross grants its invulnerability more often with higher Luck, topping out at 100% at 27 Luck.
      • Old Bandage Old Bandage : The Red Heart drop chance when you take a hit increases with higher Luck, topping out at 50% at 29 Luck.
      • Midas' Touch Midas' Touch : Poops have a chance to turn in Golden Poop. That chance increases with higher Luck.
    • Luck also affects:
      • Slot machine: Slot machines pay out more often with higher luck, but doesn't scale up to 100% payout chance. The increased payout chance is, however, enough to make the machine almost definitely profitable, and Pretty Fly is awarded more frequently.
      • Shell game: Shell games pay out more often with higher luck, but doesn't scale up to 100% payout chance. The increased payout chance is, however, enough to make the beggar almost definitely profitable.

However, Luck doesn't affect:
