The Left Hand is an unlockable trinket.



  • Removed in Repentance The effect includes chests already spawned. Entering a room that previously contained other types of chests while holding The Left Hand will turn them into Red Chests permanently.
    • Added in Repentance Chests that have already spawned are not converted into red chests.
  • It is advised to drop The Left Hand (by holding either CTRL key for few seconds, holding R2 or RT for 3 seconds on PS4 and Vita and Xbox One, respectively, or holding ZR on the New Nintendo 3DS / Nintendo Switch for a few seconds) before entering Chest Chest, as it will convert the golden chests there which always contain free items.
    • Removed in Repentance The player may prefer red chests for their possible soul hearts or red chest items, at the expense of guaranteed items.
    • Added in Repentance Golden chests converted in Chest Chest's starting room will contain Devil deals, allowing for more powerful items, but at the cost of hearts.
      • Red Chests found past the starting rooms of either Chest Chest or Dark Room Dark Room will contain regular red chest drops, dropping the trinket is advised.
  • Added in Repentance Stone Chests are affected by The Left Hand.
  • Added in Repentance Old Chests and Mega Chests cannot be overwritten by Red Chests.
