Synergies[edit | edit source]
- Magic Fingers is very effective with coin-producing items/trinkets such as Piggy BankGives 3 pennies on pick-up. Every time Isaac is damaged, he will drop one additional penny., Humbling BundleGives one extra pickup (1+1 Free version) of Red Hearts, pennies, bombs, and keys. Does not work with blue, black, and half red hearts, nickels, and dimes., Petrified PoopGreatly increases the chances of a pickup dropping when destroying poop., and Lucky RockEach obstacle destroyed drops one coin..
- Works very well with high damage/low tear passives, like IpecacReplaces tears with explosive and poisoning projectiles fired in an arc from the mouth. and PolyphemusMakes Isaac shoot one huge tear. Also reduces Tears to minimum. Damage increased . If tear does more damage than an enemy's life, the tear continues to travel with the extra remaining damage..
- With a combination of Isaac's HeartIsaac himself is now immune to all damage, and a heart familiar appears and follows Isaac. If the heart is hurt, Isaac is hurt., SchoolbagAllows Isaac to hold two active items. and IV BagUpon activation, Isaac loses a half-heart (one whole heart in The Womb onwards) for a random amount of coins, similar to the blood donation machine., Magic Fingers can effectively be used infinitely by switching to IV Bag when low on money, with Isaac's heart preventing it from lowering the player's health.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The name is a reference to 'Magic Fingers' vibrating beds that could be found in hotels and motels during the mid-to-late 20th century. A person would insert coins into a slot on the device, which would cause pleasant vibrations in their beds for a certain amount of time. The device came to have connotations with sleaziness, as they were associated with seedy overnight locations where one-night stands and such were known to occur.
