Feeling tired, bro? No sweat, bro. The gold egg's got your back. I'll have you powering through your fitness goals in less time than it takes to make scrambles. We're gonna crush it, broseph. Unless you wanna be a field mouse for the rest of your life. Is that what you want? Huh? Answer me. What's up, cat got your tongue, wickle mousey? There we go. Now you're getting pissed off. I like that. Use it. Abuse it. Unleash the beast within!
Type
Booster

Gold Easter Egg is a Booster item that was released in April 2010. [1] The Gold Easter Egg permanently increases all four of a player's Battle Stats by 1%. It cannot be sold to a store.

All Gold Easter Eggs that existed on 23 March 2023 were converted into the Chocolate Egg, a one-time event that was meant to prevent players from having large stocks of eggs from previous years after their effect was changed. [2]

Obtaining

Easter Egg can only be obtained during April. It can be obtained as Loot by defeating the Easter Bunny [17] [3] or from the Easter Egg Hunt, during which eggs spawn on-screen. The Gold Easter Egg will be added to a player's inventory when clicking its corresponding icon. It is the rarest easter egg to spawn in the event. [4]

The Gold Easter Egg cannot be obtained through city finds and cannot be traded between players.

Usage

Eating a Gold Easter Egg permanently increases a player's Strength, Speed, Defense, and Dexterity by 1% each, and increases Booster Cooldown by six hours.

This is the equivalent of using a Dumbbells, Skateboard, Boxing Gloves and Parachute all at once, with the bonus of using 18 hours less of booster cooldown. This item is considered by most players to be the best Booster in the game, and many players make careful deliberations to decide when to use it.

Historical Notes

The number of eggs required to trade for a Gold Easter Egg increased over the years. During the release of the Easter Egg Hunt in 2010, only the six original Easter Eggs (The Blue Easter Egg, Green Easter Egg, Red Easter Egg, Yellow Easter Egg, White Easter Egg, and Black Easter Egg) were required. [5] This number increased to nine in 2011 with the addition of the Brown Easter Egg, Orange Easter Egg, and Pink Easter Egg. [6] The number of Easter Eggs required to exchange for a Gold Easter Egg topped out at ten Easter Eggs in 2021, with the release of the Purple Easter Egg. [7]

Prior to its effect being changed in 2023, the Gold Easter Egg gave 250 happiness upon consumption, which tied with the Birthday Cupcake for the highest happiness gains from a Candy item.

All Gold Easter Eggs with this effect were converted into Chocolate Eggs on 23 March 2023. 33,159 Gold Easter Eggs were changed to Chocolate Eggs in total. The Gold Easter Egg was also changed from a Candy item to a Booster item the same day.

* Miniaturized icon versions of the two earliest images for the Gold Easter Egg exist but were unused, as Gold Easter Eggs did not spawn on pages until 2023. [11] The original icon can still be accessed in Torn's public image files here.

** Icons were retired after the 2022 Easter Egg Hunt. Eggs now spawn at full size.
