Effect[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Best Friend heavily resembles Isaac’s crying animation.
  • Edmund McMillen stated that Best Friend would no longer "Die upon touch". This is a reference to a bug in the original The Binding of Isaac where, in many circumstances, the player could take glitched hits (often killing Isaac outright).
