Angel

From Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

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 or 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.

Gabriel wears a bright red scarf. He will always drop Key Piece 2.

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.
  • The defeat of both Uriel and Gabriel in a single run will unlock Dad's Key.
  • Rerolling Key Piece 1 or 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.

Unlockable Achievements[edit | edit source]

  • Dad's Key Dad's Key - Pick up both Key pieces from the Angels in one run.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Uriel (or Auriel/Oriel) is one of the archangels of post-Exilic Rabbinic tradition, and also of certain Christian traditions. The name means "God is my light".
  • Gabriel is an archangel who typically serves as a messenger sent from God to certain people in Abrahamic religions. The name means "God is my strength".
  • The angels' names are never referred to in-game, but can be found within the game's files.
