Adds one heart container and lowers Speed.. The goal is to defeat Mom. This Challenge is unlocked when Magdalene is unlocked.

Difficulty[edit | edit source]

The main difficulty of the challenge is linked to Magdalene's low Speed. Additionally, the Thunder Thighs effect can cause unwanted results when not paying attention, such as setting off Bomb Rocks or creating new monsters to fight.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • The Thunder Thighs effect can easily give access to chests and other items trapped behind rocks. This will allow bombs to be used more efficiently when finding secret rooms, as well as in combat.
  • Pills can be obtained from mushrooms, which may provide a much needed Speed Up pill, but mushrooms can spawn poisonous clouds when destroyed, making this strategy risky.
    • Added in Afterbirth † Completing the Aprils Fool challenge allows Magdalene to spawn with a Speed Up pill, counteracting the heavy speed reduction from the challenge items and easily identifying future Speed Up pills.
  • Destroying as many rocks as possible is a recommended strategy, as this may result in finding a trapdoor. This can lead Magdalene to a Crawl Space or Black Market, thereby allowing the player to obtain valuable items.
  • Magdalene's high starting Health makes it easier to take deals with the devil without harsh consequences.

Unlockable Achievements[edit | edit source]

Bugs[edit | edit source]

Bug Bug! Sometimes, when using a Pill at the same time Magdalene touches the trophy, the pop up message won't appear and the player won't unlock Rune of Ansuz.[citation needed]
