The Angels are secret unlockable mini-bosses, accessible after defeating The Lamb in the Dark Room or ??? in The Chest. There are two angel variants; they are listed below.

Locations[edit | edit source]

  • A random angel will appear when bombing an angel statue in an Angel Room.
    • It is possible to use Thunder Thighs Thunder Thighs or Leo Leo to spawn an angel, which will save the player from using a bomb, but this will almost certainly cause the player to take contact damage from the Angel as it spawns.
  • Dark "fallen" versions of both angels will show up during the battle against Mega Satan.
    • Fallen Uriel has 450 health instead of 400.
    • Fallen Gabriel has 750 health instead of 660.
  • DLC Indicator.png Uriel will appear after the 9th and Gabriel will appear after the 11th sacrifice in a sacrifice room.
  • DLC Indicator.png A random angel has a chance of appearing in Boss Rush, though it will not drop a Key Piece on death.
  • Afterbirth† Indicator.png Angel Statues can sometimes appear in super secret rooms which can be blown up for a fight, but will not drop a Key Piece on death.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

  • Moves towards Isaac.
  • Folds his wings, then shoots a ring of 12 blood tears.
  • Shoots light beams in four directions.
    • If his hands glow and he stops moving around, the light beams will be fired in the cardinal directions.
    • If he folds his wings, the light beams will be fired in the diagonal directions.
  • Summons Angelic Babies.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The angels will always alternate in order of appearance. Thus, if you have already defeated Uriel, the next angel spawn is guaranteed to be Gabriel, and vice versa.
  • If the player defeats an angel and they already have both key pieces, no key piece will drop. However, if this occurs, it counts as a normal room clear, and the player may be rewarded with a pickup or chest.
  • Angels will only drop a key piece the first time they are defeated, even if Isaac does not pick up the key piece.
  • Rerolling Key Piece 1 Key Piece 1 or Key Piece 2 Key Piece 2 will yield an item from the Angel Room item pool.
  • The hitbox for the angel's beams of light are off and causes Isaac to take damage if he is anywhere near them, even if he does not touch the beam.
  • Angels will drop Items from the Angel Item Pool instead of the key pieces if Isaac is holding Afterbirth† Indicator.png Filigree Feather.
  • Afterbirth† Indicator.png Sometimes, two angel statues can appear in the same room. Destroying both will spawn both Uriel and Gabriel, but only one key piece will drop.
  • Uriel and Gabriel are immune to the Fear effect.
