Wax Wings is a passive item.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Grants flight.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Synergy.png Peripheral Vision - If the player has Light Gun, the Light Gun will turn from red to white and a dog resembling the Duck Hunt dog will appear and slap an enemy when they are shot.
  • Synergy.png Vulcan Raving - If the player also has Vulcan Cannon, its knockback is increased by 50%.
  • This item grants immunity to floor hazards like poison/fire goop, and spike/fire traps.
  • If the player also has Jetpack, they can dodge roll even while Jetpack is active.
  • Winchester's game is trivial since you can just shoot every target point-blank.
  • Having Wax Wings stops the player from moving dust while flying, making it impossible to clear the dust from the entrance to the Resourceful Rat's Lair. This item may be dropped temporarily to uncover the hatch.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This item is a reference to the Greek tale of Icarus.
  • The quote "too close to the gun" is also a direct reference to the tale of Icarus, where he tried to fly out of the Labyrinth with wings constructed out of feathers and wax. His father, Daedalus, warned him not to fly too close to the Sun, otherwise the wax in his wings would melt. However, Icarus was overcome with the freedom of flight and accidentally soared too close to the Sun, falling into the sea below as the wax melted.
