Effects[edit | edit source]

    • Dark Bum Dark BumDark Bum Icon.pngSpawns a familiar that follows Isaac around and collects red hearts. For every one-and-a-half red hearts collected, Dark Bum will generate one soul heart, one hostile Spider or one friendly blue spider.
    • Demon Baby Demon BabyDemon Baby Icon.pngFollows Isaac and automatically fires at enemies in its reach.
    • Incubus IncubusIncubus Icon.pngA demonic familiar that follows Isaac and shoots tears identical to Isaac's in terms of damage, range, fire rate, and effects.
    • Leech LeechLeech Icon.pngSpawns a friendly familiar leech on the ground that hunts down enemies and heals you for half a heart each time it eats one.
    • Lil Brimstone Lil BrimstoneLil Brimstone Icon.pngA Familiar that shoots a thin Brimstone beam. Must charge like Brimstone before shooting.
    • Succubus SuccubusSuccubus Icon.pngSpawns a flying familiar that bounces around the room with a black aura, dealing rapid damage to any enemies inside it. While standing in the aura, Isaac gains a 1.5x tear damage multiplier.
  • The first and second familiars will each spawn after taking damage 15 times. The third and fourth familiars will each spawn after taking damage 30 more times. No further familiars will spawn. As a result, after taking damage 90 times, four out of six possible familiars will have spawned.
  • Isaac will look progressively more pregnant as he takes damage.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Lilith starts with this item by default, even if it hasn't been unlocked.
  • Only one of each type of familiar can be spawned.
  • Only actually getting damage counts towards the payout. For example, disrupting the Holy Mantle Holy MantleHoly Mantle Icon.pngAutomatically negates first taken damage in every room. shield while keeping your heart containers full will not spawn any familiars.
  • Familiars spawned this way do not count towards transformations nor the Collection Page.
  • Familiars spawned by the item do not affect item pools, so multiple copies of one familiar can be obtained. For example, a second Incubus can be purchased after Cambion Conception spawns one.
  • If a familiar obtained is a copy of another one you've already obtained, using Box of Friends Box of FriendsBox of Friends Icon.png4 roomsUpon use, duplicates all of Isaac's familiars for the current room. will only clone one of that familiar, similarly to the Box of Friends's effects on cloned familiars that it spawns.
