Apollyon is a character added in The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth † expansion.

Apollyon starts with two heart containers and Void Void, a 6-charge item which destroys items and grants bonuses in return, and combines all voided spacebar items into one.

 Switch   PS4  Apollyon is unlocked by defeating Mega Satan for the first time.

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".

 Switch   PS4  The achievement for unlocking Apollyon states "You Unlocked The Destroyer".

  • Apollyon starting with Added in Afterbirth † Void 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.
