Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

(in Repentance)

Consolation Prize is a passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance.

Effects[ | ]

  • Gives Isaac one of the following stat boosts, depending on what attribute Isaac has the least of:
  • Also drops either 3 PennyCoins, 1 BombBomb, or 1 KeyKey on the ground.
    • Bombs and keys are valued at 3 coins' worth. The pickup dropped will be what Isaac has the least value of, and in case of a tie one is chosen randomly.
  • As Character Bethany iconBethany and Character Tainted Bethany iconTainted Bethany, one Soul HeartSoul Heart or two Red HeartRed Hearts can also be dropped if they are low on charges.
    • Charges are valued at 2 × Charges - 1 coins' worth. For instance having 7 charges would be valued at 13 coins.

Notes[ | ]

  • Pickups spawned can be variants of their type.
  • As Character Tainted ??? iconTainted ???, the game still checks the bomb count instead of the poop count. Since Tainted ??? cannot get bombs normally and bombs are turned into poop pickups or troll bombs, he will receive them every time once he has at least 3 coins and a key.
  • The tears up can break the soft tears cap of 5, due to the fact that it is a fire rate modifier.
  • Cards and trinkets that grant temporary stat increases will affect the stat given by Consolation Prize (e.g. using I - The MagicianI - The Magician or carrying Tape WormTape Worm will likely prevent the item from granting a range up, VII - The ChariotVII - The Chariot or Goat HoofGoat Hoof - speed, and so on.)
    • This can be use to force the raise of a chosen stat, if the player knows that 2 of them ar tied.
  • The stat up is permanent and won't go away even if the item is removed, similar to Collectible Experimental Treatment iconExperimental Treatment.
    • Because of that, Character Tainted Isaac iconTainted Isaac can pick it up and freely drop it without losing anything.

Trivia[ | ]

  • Consolation Prize is from the Antibirth mod.
  • The sprite of the item refer to a "chocolate medal", an ironic medal designed for the 4th place of a competition, as no medal is normally given for. That can be, in this way, a consolation prize.
