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

Apollyon starts with two Red Heart containers and Void Void, a 6-charge item that destroys items and grants bonuses in return and combines all voided active items into one. Apollyon is unlocked by defeating Mega Satan for the first time.

Unlockable items[edit | edit source]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • Knowing most item effects is very important for Apollyon, as you want to know whether or not to absorb something.
  • The Battery The Battery and Charged Baby Charged Baby allow Void Void to be used twice consecutively without going into other rooms. This is helpful if you want to use Void Void to fight the boss and then absorb the item after defeating it after all rooms have been cleared, or when a Devil/Angel Room spawns after defeating the boss and you do not have Goat Head Goat Head or Eucharist Eucharist.
  • There's Options There's Options and More Options More Options are amazing items for Apollyon, as they give the opportunity to absorb twice as many items that could increase his stats or add to his actives collection.
