Ankh is a passive item.

Effect[edit | edit source]

  • Grants an extra life.
    • Isaac will respawn as ??? in the previous room.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Because characters are respawned as ???, if Azazel or The Lost are resurrected by this item, they will lose the ability to fly unless they picked up items granting such abilities.
    • Azazel will also lose his short-ranged Brimstone.
    • If Lilith is resurrected she will lose Added in AfterbirthIncubus IncubusIncubus Icon.pngA demonic familiar that follows Isaac and shoots tears identical to Isaac's in terms of damage, range, fire rate, and effects. and fire as any other character instead.
  • Like other items that grant an extra life, but respawn Isaac as a different character, all Completion Marks earned from the moment of death onwards will count towards the new character, not the old.

In-game Footage[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Ankh is an Egyptian hieroglyph that means "life".
    • Additionally, this item's effect may be inspired by the Osiris myth, which featured Osiris, a pharaoh, being murdered by his brother Set, then later resurrected as the Egyptian god of the afterlife, similarly to how Isaac resurrects as ??? upon death.
  • This item works similar to Spelunky's Ankh.
