  • Although some NPC dialogue lines do change depending on the player's gender, like the Stylist's dialogue, gender otherwise has no significant impact on game mechanics or gameplay, and as such the effects of this potion are purely cosmetic.
  • On use, a helix of relatively long-lasting blue and pink particles will surround the player.


  • The Gender Change Potion, alongside the use of the Stylist NPC and dressers, allows the player to change every visual aspect of their character.
  • Due to the variety of crafting ingredients required, it may be easier and more practical for an early-game player to simply create a new character with the other gender instead. The potion is primarily useful for later-game characters, for when it would be more efficient to gather all of the herbs than to make a different character which needs new Life Crystals, Mana Crystals, Life Fruits, and/or a Demon Heart.
    • The potion is also useful to in-game roleplayers.
  • Gathering all of the ingredients can be made a trivial task with an herb farm.


  • The Gender Change Potion and the Garland are the only items to require all of the herbs in their recipe.
  • The potion jar sprite contains the colors pink and blue, which are associated with girls and boys respectively in the United States, the United Kingdom and some European countries.
