Notes[edit | edit source]
- This item's tooltip incorrectly states how much jump speed it grants, with the actual value being roughly 20% of the listed jump speed boost.
- Shell Speed Boost will not be granted on hit if the player has the Panic Necklace or any of its upgrades equipped.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
|April Fool's sprite|
- During April 1st (April Fool's Day), the Sponge's sprite changes to a cube resembling a real life cleaning sponge.
- The Sponge gets its name from the term "damage sponge" due to the Sponge's ability to increase the survivability of the player.
