Buttlickers are monsters that wander around randomly in straight lines similar to Larry Jr.. They most often spawn attached to other Buttlickers in chains of up to 5. When one Buttlicker in the chain is destroyed, the other Buttlickers separate from each other and continue to move in random directions.
Similar to Larry Jr., Buttlickers can destroy Poop on contact. Often, Buttlickers are seen in rooms filled with Corny Poop, leading to swarms of Flies.
Buttlickers can prove to be quite difficult due to their speed and unpredictable movement, allowing them to evade Isaac's tears and catch up to him if he's too slow. If Buttlickers are seen in chains, the player should attack only the leading Buttlicker or the Buttlicker at the back to prevent them from splitting into multiple chains. Piercing tears work well on Buttlickers as they can damage multiple parts of a chain at once.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Any status effect inflicted on a Buttlicker (poison, etc) will also spread to any other Buttlickers attached to it if in a chain.
- Charming a chain of Buttlickers will cause it to chase Isaac if no other enemies are in the room. However, if Isaac kills a Buttlicker in the middle of the chain and then charms them, the Buttlickers will attack each other.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Buttlickers were first implemented in the Wrath of the Lamb DLC for the original The Binding of Isaac.
- In the original The Binding of Isaac, destroying any Buttlicker in a chain would cause all Buttlickers to separate and move independently. This does not happen in Rebirth.
