Breath of Life is an activated item.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Holding spacebar will gradually deplete the charge bar. As the charge gets closer to zero, Isaac turns bluer over time.
    • Added in Afterbirth † Once the invincibility takes effect, Isaac starts flashing rapidly.
  • Grants a brief moment of invincibility when the charge bar hits zero. If the spacebar is held for an additional second after hitting zero, Isaac will take damage.
  • The item will recharge on its own but cannot be used again until it is fully charged (even if you didn't fully deplete the charge bar).

Uses[edit | edit source]

Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • Added in AfterbirthBlind Rage Blind Rage: Doubles the invincibility period after taking damage with Breath of Life.
  • Isaac's Heart Isaac's Heart: When held down too long, Breath of Life no longer damages Isaac, resulting in infinite invincibility.
  • Added in Afterbirth †Void Void: Using Void with Breath of Life will immediately grant invincibility frames.

In-game Footage[edit | edit source]

Gallery[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Breath of Life refers to God breathing life into the soil to create the first human.
  • This is the only activated item whose charge bar is gradually rather than instantly depleted.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

Bug Bug! Removed in Afterbirth † This item does not work with Broken Remote.
Bug Bug! If you have The Battery and a full yellow charge bar, the yellow charges will not decrease when the item is used, despite the green charges decreasing beneath. This makes it more difficult to gauge when to release the button.
