Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Unlocking Sticky Nickels is strictly speaking a downgrade as they replace normal nickels, though the sticky ones are rare enough to not make a severe difference.
    • Although Edmund McMillen has stated they should replace pennies, this is not how they are actually implemented.
  • Added in Afterbirth † Booster Pack #5 added a green glow to Lucky Pennies, making them easier to spot. This was from this Steam Workshop mod by piber20.
  • Despite being able to pick up coins, Ultra Greed and his statue cannot pick up sticky nickels until they have been unstuck by an explosion.
  • During an Ultra Greed fight, if a sticky nickel drops Ultra Greed will be continuously drawn to it.
  • Added in Repentance Sticky nickels visibly stick to the ground upon spawning, making them easier to distinguish from ordinary nickels.
  • Added in Repentance In the unlikely event that a Sticky Nickel is present during the Bumbino fight, the boss will try to pick the coin up in futility, making him distracted and thus negating much of the difficulty of the fight.
