Treasure is a general term for the collection of items that increase the player's money score when picked up.

There are many kinds of treasure that can be found lying around on the ground, embedded in the floor, dropped by certain enemies upon defeat, or - on the rare occasion of a Golden Scarab - flying around in dark levels, sub-areas, or in the City of Gold.

Most treasure is collected simply by having the player's body touch it, and it may trigger Arrow Traps or be whipped away.

As a basic rule, the value of each item increases by 25% of its original value in each area, with the exception of special items and Golden Idols.

Notes

  • Golden Idols scale differently; While all other treasures scale by an extra 25% every level, Golden Idols scale by an extra 100% of its original value in the first area, increasing by $5000 per world.
  • Gold Bars, Gold Coins, and Large Gold Nuggets all have the same value and scaling.
  • Golden Scarabs only appear in sub-areas, dark levels, and The City of Gold.
  • Small gems can only be obtained from opening normal Chests or as the excrement of a Golden Monkey. They cannot be transmogrified into Diamonds by The Ghost.
  • Diamonds are most easily obtained by passing The Ghost through other normal sized gems, but may also be obtained from Vault Chests, breaking open a level's Curse Pot, or given to the player by Van Horsing in Volcana.
  • The Giant Statue and Giant Chest are only obtainable at the end of a run by completing either the normal or hard ending respectively. While these treasures do count towards the "Millionaire" Achievement, they do not count for the "Low Scorer" Achievement.
