Extra Lives[edit | edit source]
Typically, when Isaac dies, the game over screen appears; however, there are certain revival items, characters, and abilities that can resurrect Isaac after death. It is possible to obtain extra lives throughout a run by picking up various items. When Isaac dies, they will be revived in the previous room under the new life. Below is a list of these items and special death / extra life conditions that they bestow. The order of revives is independent of order of item pickup, determined by the list below from highest to lowest placing:
1up![edit | edit source]
The 1up! grants Isaac an extra life. Upon death of the previous life, Isaac will be revived with full Red Heart containers. If he lacks any, he will revive with one Half Soul Heart, or in the case of ???, 3 Soul Hearts.
Lazarus and Lazarus' Rags[edit | edit source]
While holding Lazarus' Rags, Isaac will be revived as Lazarus Risen with 1 Red Heart container. Note that unlike other items, the Rags will revive Isaac on the spot with brief invincibility, as opposed to in the previous room.
Dead Cat grants Isaac nine extra lives. Isaac will be revived with one Red Heart container unless playing as ???, where he will be revived with one soul heart.
Guppy's Collar grants Isaac a 50% chance to be revived with one Red Heart container half-filled. If he lacks any, he will be revived at half a Soul Heart instead. If the collar fails to activate, any other items after Guppy's Collar will be checked. The revives from Guppy's Collar are seeded per death.
Ankh[edit | edit source]
The Ankh revives Isaac as ??? with 3 Soul Hearts.
When held, Broken Ankh has a 2/9 chance to resurrect Isaac as ??? with 3 Soul Hearts. The revives from Broken Ankh are seeded per death.
