From Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki
Mega Satan for the first time.Apollyon is unlocked by defeating
Unlockable items[edit | edit source]
Strategy[edit | edit source]
- Knowing most, if not all passive item effects is very important for Apollyon, as you want to know whether or not to absorb something.
- While helpful to know active items, you can simply pick them up and then activate them to discover their effects.
- Depending on what your goal is, absorbing the bible may be a bad idea or good, as it kills you during the Satan and Mega-Satan battles and kills Mom and Mom's Heartduring their battles.
- Apollyon starts with only two hearts, and therefore requires more evasive maneuvers than Isaac does.
Good Items[edit | edit source]
- Satanic Bible-Due to the black heart it gives you, Satanic Bible is a great yet simple addition to your void.
- Yum Heart-Just like Satanic Bible, Yum Heart is a simple addition to your void that grants a red heart upon use.
- Necronomicon-Flat damage to all enemies in the room, giving the Void and offensive edge
- Head of Krampus-As with Necronomicon, gives a nice offense to the void.
- Delirious-Cuts delirious' charge in half, making it a much better item that can lead to very interesting runs, especially when combined with Car Battery.
- Mega Blast-Again halfs the charge for Mega Blast, which allows it to be used more often.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Apollyon is the Greek name for the angel Abaddon, and is also known as "The Destroyer".
The achievement for unlocking Apollyon states "You Unlocked The Destroyer".
- Apollyon starting with Void is a reference to the fact that he is the angel of the bottomless pit or the abyss.
- In the New Testament Book of Revelation, an angel called Abaddon is written as the king of an army of locusts, hence the locust trinkets he unlocks.
- Besides Isaac, Apollyon is the only character that has no in-game requirements to be unlocked.
- However, in the console version of Afterbirth+, he does need to be unlocked and is unlocked upon killing Mega Satan.
- Despite the fact that Apollyon appears to have wings, he does not start with flight.
