Removes all goop in a small radius continuously.

A normal sponge, useful for cleaning up messes. Holding it, you hear the whispers of an alien tongue.

Sponge is a passive item.

Effects[ | ]

  • Removes all liquids/webbing near the player.
  • Allows the player to understand Professor Goopton (not an actual game-changing mechanic).
    • The player does not need to be actively holding the sponge in order to understand Professor Goopton - they just need to have picked it up once in the run. Dropping the Sponge keeps the effect.

Notes[ | ]

  • Synergy Soft Air - If the player also has JK-47, when holding the JK-47, the player regains ammo when walking over liquids, and increases fear range while reloading.
  • Synergy Spengbab - If the player also has Tangler, its knockback and range are increased by 50%.
  • Sponge cannot be sold.
  • This item nullifies the effect of Bug Boots.
  • This item nullifies the ammo recovering ability of guns that require you to stand on liquid, such as the Plunger and the Gungine.

Trivia[ | ]

  • Godliness is a reference to the idiom, Cleanliness is next to Godliness.
  • The Synergy Spengbab synergy is a reference to SpongeBob SquarePants. It being "Spengbab" is likely not just for avoiding copyright, but instead also a reference to the "Oh hell nah Spunch Bop" meme, where the main joke is that the cast's names are purposefully misspelled.
