- The game counts runes as cards for the purposes of Blank Card, and Tarot Cloth.
- Starter Deck does not prevent runes from generating, and allows holding two of them.
- Using the Blank Card with the ? Card teleports Isaac to the I AM ERROR room of the current floor. This consumes both the Blank Card and the ? Card.
- III - The Empress card's effect can be stacked with multiple uses of the same card (including uses by Blank Card), and also stacks with the Whore of Babylon.
- The damage bonus is the number of uses squared, e.g. +1.5 * 4 * 4 damage for using the card via a Blank Card, with Tarot Cloth and Car Battery equipped.
- XV - The Devil card's effect does not stack with multiple uses, nor does it stack with The Book of Belial. It also does not increase the chance of a Devil Room or Angel Room appearing when used like with the Book of Belial.
- Blood of the Martyr grants its additional 1.5x damage multiplier with XV - The Devil.
- Using the Joker card in Womb / Utero II will instantly teleport Isaac to the Devil Room or Angel Room with a trapdoor leading to Sheol or to the Cathedral. This can be used to skip Mom's Heart and will not count as a kill.
- Using The Joker card can allow Isaac to encounter Devil Rooms or Angel Rooms on floors they otherwise cannot appear on.
- If Isaac uses XI - Strength card with only Soul, Black, or Bone Hearts left, and loses the non-Red Hearts while in the same room, he retains the full Red Heart Container that XI - Strength grants.
- The foot summoned by The High Priestess can destroy rocks and open doors, including the entrance to Secret Rooms.
- The damage dealt by II - The High Priestess counts as explosion damage, meaning it will not damage Isaac when possessing Host Hat or Pyromaniac.
- Using XI - Strength as ??? will give him a permanent Soul Heart instead of a temporary one. When Keeper has only one Coin Heart, he can use XI - Strength to gain a second one which is also permanent. Both of the mentioned characters will lose the temporary health granted by XI - Strength.
- While Curse of the Maze is active, 0 - The Fool, IX - Hermit, XVII - The Stars, and XVIII - The Moon may fail and leave Isaac in a different room than intended. The Joker card still works normally.
- Using the XIV - Temperance can, in rare cases, spawn the Blood Donation Machine directly on Isaac, forcing him to use it once.
- All teleportation cards except 0 - The Fool are unavailable in Greed Mode.
- Leaving Trinkets in a Boss Room or Treasure Room will transform them into a Cracked Key when on the Ascent to Home, if the Red Key is unlocked.
- Once Mother is defeated, a unique marked skull will spawn on Depths / Necropolis / Dank Depths II or XL. When destroyed, it will always drop 0 - The Fool card (Or an identified Telepills if Little Baggy has been picked up).
- Soul of Cain's effect can open any door that Cracked Orb can, including the Strange Door and door to Mega Satan.
- Using Soul of The Lost and then beating a boss for a completion mark within the same room will not count as a completion mark for The Lost. Instead, the completion mark and achievement will go to the character who used the soul stone.
- Using 0 - The Fool? while having all empty Heart Containers with Soul Hearts will cause the Soul Hearts to all be dropped on the ground, killing Isaac.
- If Tarot Cloth is held, the currently held card will flash, indicating that it is being affected by Tarot Cloth.
- If Mega Chests have been unlocked, each Golden Chest spawned by VIII - Justice? has a chance of being replaced with a Mega Chest.
- Using any teleport cards while inside of The Beast fight will simply move Isaac instantly to different spot in the same room. This also includes the Joker card.
- Using IV - The Emperor? in Womb / Utero/ Scarred Womb / Corpse I or II will teleport Isaac to a boss fight from the current boss pool.
- Using it in Sheol / Cathedral / Dark Room / Chest / The Void / Home will teleport Isaac to a random room.
- Using it in ??? will teleport Isaac to a boss fight from the Womb boss pool.
- It can be used to skip Boss Rush after touching a pedestal item. After defeating the extra boss, leaving the room will lead Isaac to the regular, locked Mom boss room.
- Using IV - The Emperor? again on the same floor after defeating the boss it spawns takes Isaac back to the same cleared boss room.
- The effect of XIX - The Sun?, particularly flight, will persist even through the Knife Piece 2 sequence.
- Familiars gained from Soul of Lilith do not count as collected, and can still spawn in their appropriate pools.
- Esau from the Soul of Jacob and Esau can use Devil Beggar and Hell Game allowing The Lost and the Tainted Lost to use them without dying, or a form of invulnerability.
- The runes and their names ingame are based on the Elder Futhark alphabet system and its reconstructed Proto-Germanic names. In popular culture, runes often signify that something is in some way magical.
- IX - The Hermit?'s effect was based directly on the Rune of Fehu from Antibirth. No other Antibirth rune was adapted into Repentance.
- The Suicide King card is a nickname for the King of Hearts, referred to as such because its artwork depicts a king who seems to be sticking a sword into his own head.

- Ancient Recall, Era Walk, Huge Growth, and Chaos Card are all based on cards from Magic: The Gathering.
- The Chaos Card is a reference to the card "Chaos Orb", which also instantly destroys enemies that it touches.
- The "Ancient Recall" card is a reference to the card "Ancestral Recall", which also draws three cards.
- The "Era Walk" card is a reference to the card "Time Walk", which allows players to take an extra turn.
