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 chargeup 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

In-game Footage[edit | edit source]

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]
