Doctor's remote is actually a decent item, a limited use epic fetus.

- Dead Cat
- Dead Cat

- Dead Cat

Why? Because 1UP exists.

Nah, kamikaze! can be a pretty useful item if youre out of bombs and the current stage is full of hearts, so you can find the secret rooms without wasting your bombs or even need any.

Poop might give that crucal soul heart.or penny.
Misshap i agree
Remote is useful for that one guy you just cant hit because he is too fast.
Kamaze! can be used to one shot pin or something.

The dead cat is a great item if you know how to use it. I actually just got done writing a guide to making bad items useful ( and while there's not much I can do for boring stuff like Lemon Mishap, something like the Dead Cat which can potentially get you half a dozen free items is actually pretty damn useful.
Every item has its use. Even the Poop. For example, I used it, broke the turd I left behind and found a dime. The Blue Baby♥♥♥♥♥♥a dime. What's not brilliant about that?

There's poop on every stage on the game, and yes maybe it will give you a penny or something, but do you really play the game and hope the first item you find is Poop?

I think the Tick is the worst!!!

1. Lemon Mishap (Barely useful)
2. Cat-o-nine-tails (Very limited usefulness)
3. Holy Water (Glitches out my other familiars.)
4. Notched Axe (Almost always shows up in that last shop in the depths when you desperately need the map or compass)
5. Dead Cat (Always drops after that hellish fallen fight.)

If you have that item that allows for TWO trinket slots, its pretty useful. It heals you half a heart at the start of a boss, and said boss actually starts with LESS health.

-Bum friend (greedy b#tch always picks up coins when I need them)
-Boom! (just more bombs with slighty more damage, not useful since I don't use bombs in fight)
-Mr. mega (same as Boom!, i'ts just an extra bomb)
-Mom's pad (makes the enemies run away, how is that useful)
-The bean (makes you fart. really you can just do that with pills)
-My reflection (shoots tears back at you, how in any way is that helpful?)
-Lemon mishap/Holy water (just a puddle of creep monsters never even touch)
-Remote detonator (not so useless if you use bombs in battle, but still)
-Telepathy for dummies (Just makes your shoot homing tears. not that useful)
-Magic 8 ball (gives you a tarot card. Big f*cking deal)
-3 dollar bill (I almost never get other tear effects appart of normal.)
-Paegant boy (just gives you money. nothing really useful)

Those Items are very crappy/useless for me. all the other items are just fine.

A real killer for me is ABEL. It really isn't helpful unless you are in a room full of flies ♥♥♥♥ing themselves opposite you; the least they could have done with it was at least give it either faster firing rate or higher damage to make it seem like it's doing something a bit more important.

My personal 'top hated space-type items':
-the poop ( not worth the time to block enemies, and to get a dime... once in a life time...)
-notched axe ( *facepalm* pleeeaaasee... never ever used - only found in shops most of time for 15C - I buy it to replace item using D6 ONLY!) [btw. In minecr@ft is much more usefull :P]
-mom's pad/bra... (just LOL)
-kamikaze... (it's simplier and faster to restart game...)
-the bean ( don't even bother since there is the Black one and pills)
-Lemon Mishap (as people above... same reason, most enemies avoid the split....)
-teleport (there are tarrot cards, pills, its only good to look for the secret rooms / error rooms - oh, avoid at all cost at the chest zone, error room=trap/no exit LOL tested! x-{ )

And my personal 'top hated collective type items':\
-ankh (*except for the ???* - swaps after death your character to ??? pleaseeee...)
- dead cat ( ok this one had only 2 lucky game rolls through my whole game play - it;s good to actually 'steal' items from devil room early in game, but on Utero and later it's one-hit good-bye!)

There are also trinkets :P
The Tick (hate the most!!!), umbilical cord, the skull (playing as ??? LOL get hit you;ll know why ;D)
While playing as Isaac with D6 every space-item is useless for me up to chest :P (or other character getting D6)
Thanks for D6+battery/9volt+habit - also get yourself OP with mom's knife/brimstone :D

The items I want tend to vary depending on where I am in the game. Bum Friend is annoying on early floors, but invaluable in the Womb onwards where money becomes useless. A lot of these items (especially dead cat) have uses, they're just situational. In fact I'll probably update my guide with more of them as I go.

That said: Telepathy for Dummies is awful. It's rare enough I need homing shots, but it's not even a one room recharge.
Paprika Jan 20, 2013 @ 4:46pm 
Lots of people don't realise that the magic 8 ball isn't a tears up, and is just a shot speed up. Like the cat-o-nine-tails. So, they are basicly on the same level of uselessness. BUT YOU GET A FREE TAROT CARD. OOOOOOOOOOoooOOO.
