The Dark Room is one of the game's three final stages, alongside its counterpart, The Chest The Chest, as well as Added in Afterbirth † The Void The Void. The Dark Room is unlocked by defeating Satan 5 times, after which it can be accessed by touching the chest dropped by Satan with The Negative The Negative equipped. Entrance to the Dark Room can also be achieved via the I AM ERROR room on Sheol, even without The Negative The Negative as well as through the Black Market on Sheol Sheol and through a trapdoor spawned by a button. After completing this level or The Chest for the first time, the Dark Room will always contain a large golden door in the first room, which can be unlocked with either the Key Pieces (combination of Key Piece 1 Key Piece 1 and Key Piece 2 Key Piece 2), Dad's Key Dad's Key, Added in AfterbirthGet out of Jail Free Card Get out of Jail Free Card or Added in Afterbirth †Mr. ME! Mr. ME!.

Added in Afterbirth The Dark Room can also be accessed by repeatedly using a Sacrifice Room. After Uriel and Gabriel are killed, continuing to use the Sacrifice Room will teleport Isaac to the Dark Room, regardless of what floor he was previously on.

Added in Afterbirth † The Dark Room is home to the Grave Room which will contain a Dirt Patch, which can be dug up using Added in Afterbirth †Mom's Shovel Mom's Shovel. Doing so for the first time will unlock The Forgotten. On subsequent runs, multiple Dirt Patches can be found, and digging them up using We Need to Go Deeper! We Need to Go Deeper!, Ehwaz Ehwaz, or Mom's Shovel will spawn a random type of chest.

Like Sheol Sheol before it, the Dark Room consists of only one floor. In the Dark Room, it is not possible to bomb doors open to skip rooms. The Dark Room's rooms are mainly filled with bosses and mini-bosses. The boss of the floor is always The Lamb.

The first room the player spawn in will automatically contain 4 Red Chests. Red Chests will also drop frequently upon clearing a room, regardless of whether the player has the Left Hand trinket or not. Additionally, all normal and Locked Chests spawned in the Dark Room will always contain Treasure Room items.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • If Isaac gets Key Piece 1 Key Piece 1 and Key Piece 2 Key Piece 2, the key will open the golden gate to fight Mega Satan, but if Isaac uses Forget Me Now Forget Me Now, the floor will reset and Isaac won't get both Key Pieces back, making it so that the golden gate won't open again.
  • Added in Afterbirth The I AM ERROR room cannot be reached by any method in The Chest The Chest and the Dark Room.

Unlockable Achievements[edit | edit source]

  • Dead Boy
    Dead Boy - Complete chapter 6 without taking damage.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Dark Room is the only floor in the game which originates from Rebirth. All the other floors included in Rebirth at its launch were from the original The Binding of Isaac and its DLC Wrath of the Lamb.
  • The Dark Room is also the name of a room which, like its name suggests, is plunged into complete darkness, for the notable purpose of processing photos. The fact access to this floor is done by touching the chest in Sheol while holding The Negative The Negative, which is the name given to a photo that has not been processed yet and whose colors and hues are inverted, might be a nod to this.
  • The layout to The Chest and the Dark Room are identical for a given seed.
  • One of the Super Secret Room layouts is of the Dark Room and a Black Heart. The sprite for the door is a portal rather than a gray door, however, since bombed-out entrances in the Dark Room appear as portals.
    • This secret room appears floating in a black void on most floors, but in the Dark Room, it appears in a purple misty void instead, just like all the other rooms.

Music[edit | edit source]

The music for the Dark Room is titled Devoid, which means “empty”.
