Noita Wiki

Cruel orb is an item.

When kicked, it can produce a small amount of blood money, or a very large explosion.

It can only be found when the player has the Curse of Greed active, in which case it takes the place of any Shiny Orbs that would otherwise generate in unvisited areas.


When kicked the item will "roll" a number from a 1-20 range, and depending on the outcome create gold or explode. The rolling is more akin to drawing cards from a deck than it is to rolling a die, as the same number can't be rolled twice by an individual Cruel Orb.

Number Rolled Effect
