  • On its own, this item is considerably worse at generating Cards, Runes, and Soul Heart Soul Hearts than Crystal Ball Crystal Ball; Fortune Cookie produces 1 per 7.4 charges on average, while Crystal Ball produces 1 per 6 charges guaranteed. However, with 9 Volt 9 Volt, Fortune Cookie produces 1 per 3.7 charges on average, nearly twice as often as Crystal Ball.
    • If you include the chance of trinkets generating, then Fortune Cookie will produce 1 per 6.6 charges, or 1 per 3.3 charges with 9 Volt.

  • Using this item in a room with enemies, spikes, or other hazards can often make it difficult to see what is happening, as nearly half of the player's screen may be covered by a fortune. This can be circumvented by pausing the game and waiting for the fortune to disappear.


  • Book of Virtues Book of Virtues: Spawns a green wisp on the middle ring. Each wisp gives Isaac +0.2 Luck. If wisps are lost, Luck is only updated after Isaac's Luck changes through any means (this is most likely a bug; see bugs section of Book of Virtues). This mechanic also causes the first wisp given to not increase Luck.
