Effects[ | ]

Notes[ | ]

  • The effect will also be triggered when the floor is reset (for example, with Collectible Forget Me Now iconForget Me Now).
  • Character Eden iconEden will not be given the eternal heart on the first floor if they start with this trinket.
  • (in Afterbirth † and Repentance) When held as Character The Forgotten iconThe Forgotten, the eternal heart will be given to whichever character is being controlled when entering the next floor.
  • (in Repentance) When going though the Ascent, eternal hearts will be given for each floor traveled up.

Trivia[ | ]

  • Maggy's Faith is most likely a reference to Mary Magdalene's faith in Jesus. Mary was said to be one Jesus trusted most and she stayed with Him past the abandonment of His disciples, as well as being the first person He showed Himself to after His resurrection.[1]
    • It may also be a reference to Mom, with her name being revealed to be Maggy during the Ascent sequence.
  • "Faith's reward" may constitute a contraction of the adage "Faith is its own reward", although use of the word 'faith' in the game is conflicted, as it also used in the quote for the Rosary BeadRosary Bead, in reference to Angel RoomAngel Rooms.
  • (in Repentance) This trinket is used in Baptism by Fire (challenge #38).

Bugs[ | ]

Bug Bug! (except in Rebirth) When held as Character Keeper iconKeeper, blue flies will not be spawned instead of the eternal heart, making the trinket useless.
