The Cursed Eye is a passive item.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Grants charged tears which when fully charged fires a tight burst of four.
    • Releasing all fire keys while not completely charged shoots 0-3 tears in a tight burst dependent on how long Isaac charged.
  • Taking damage while charging will teleport Isaac into another room.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Getting hit while holding a full charge does not teleport Isaac.
  • This item can be counterproductive, especially while fighting bosses, as getting hit while charging a shot will reset the fight.
  • Added in Afterbirth The teleporting and charge-up effects do not apply to Lilith. Her Incubus will fire three projectiles with each shot without needing to charge, making this a very easy way of tripling her damage output with no downside.
  • The color of Isaac's cursed eye will indicate what state it currently is in:
    • White: Inactive
    • Black: Charging up
    • Flashing black and white: Fully charged

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This item may be a reference to Edgar Allan Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart" where the narrator talks about murdering an old man because of his "evil eye", which is described to look like The Cursed Eye.
  • When Keeper charges up his shots his eye turns into a dollar sign.[1]
