Death (Boss)

From Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
When the Lamb broke the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come.” I looked, and behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth.
~ Revelation 6:7-8

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Phase 1

  • Spawns four scythes that stay stationary for a few seconds, then home in on the player.
  • Spawns two scythes that stay stationary for a few seconds, then continue to home in on the player until they are destroyed.
  • Uses The Hourglass The Hourglass to slow the player down.

Phase 2

  • After enough damage is dealt, Death will dismount from his horse.
  • Death's horse will continue to fly horizontally throughout the room dealing contact damage, even after Death has been defeated.
  • Death will occasionally spawn Knights.

Champion versions[edit | edit source]

  • Black: In his first form, he summons Kamikaze Leeches instead of using the Hourglass. He spawns Red Maws rather than Knights when he dismounts his horse.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Death is one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
  • Death's scythe attack is a homage to Castlevania's recurring boss, Death. Both summon four scythes that stay put for a few seconds, then home in on the player.
  • Death is currently the only enemy in game that is able to use a status effect against Isaac.
  • When Death uses The Hourglass The Hourglass, The Ludovico Technique The Ludovico Technique's tear is slow to respond and has a higher maximum speed, becoming difficult to control.
