Pick Ups are random items that are dropped by Champion Monsters, Bosses, spawned in rooms, given by Beggars, won in Slot Machines/Shell Games, and found in Chests, Fireplaces, Poop piles, and Tinted Rocks. They are consumed by walking over them. In the case of hearts, you will not pick up a heart or attract it with Magneto unless you are damaged.

Note : Only 12 hearts will be displayed at a time (regular and soul hearts). You can only have a maximum of 12 regular hearts for the purposes of damage, though Deals With The Devil and Guppy's Paw keep track of hearts off the screen. Soul hearts are not restricted in this way.

Basic Pickups include:
