Effects[ | ]

  • Spawns an additional Curse RoomCurse Room on each floor, if possible.
  • Curse rooms have improved layouts and rewards while Voodoo Head is held.
  • A coin is guaranteed to spawn in Curse Rooms.

Notes[ | ]

  • Has no effect in Greed Mode.
  • The singular coin generated by the item in curse rooms cannot be a special coin (nickle, dime, lucky, etc).
  • Does not spawn a coin if Voodoo Head was picked up on the same floor.
  • This item is beneficial for Character The Lost iconThe Lost due to the chance of obtaining Collectible Dead Cat iconDead Cat or Collectible Guppy's Collar iconGuppy's Collar in curse rooms. However, use caution as the run can easily end from being hit while fighting any enemies inside. A teleport card, such as 0 - The Fool0 - The Fool, would be advised to prevent such situations.
  • This item is also very beneficial for Character Tainted Judas iconTainted Judas or Character Tainted Forgotten iconTainted Forgotten, as they can enter and leave curse rooms for free.
  • The coin that spawns, while minimal for most characters, is considerably useful for Character Keeper iconKeeper and Character Tainted Keeper iconTainted Keeper, letting them partially heal from the curse room door's donation and letting Tainted Keeper leave even if there are no enemies to get coins from.
  • This item causes the level generation to increase the minimum number of dead ends on each floor by 1, increasing the likelihood of curse rooms spawning.
    • The level generation does not guarantee an additional curse room can be placed; there is limited space for special rooms, and other types may take priority over it.
      • If a curse room doesn't spawn, it's possible Voodoo Head still increased the dead end count, giving you an extra special room.
