Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Grants 2 Black Hearts on pickup.
  • When Isaac has no red hearts:
    • Grants flight.
    • Every 40 seconds, when in a room with enemies, a shield triggers, nullifying all types of damage for 10 seconds.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The changed texture of the player's body is the same as The Lost's, but recolored.
  • Has no effect on Keeper.

Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • The Lost, ???: Since these characters can never gain red hearts, Empty Vessel will always be activated.
  • Abaddon AbaddonAbaddon Rebirth Icon.pngIncreases damage and speed, removes all red heart containers, grants six black hearts, and adds a chance to shoot fear tears.: Since Abaddon removes all red hearts as well as adding several black hearts, it will immediately activate Empty Vessel's effects.
  • Whore of Babylon Whore of BabylonWhore of Babylon Rebirth Icon.pngIncreases damage and speed whenever Isaac has half a red heart or less (one red heart for Eve), ignoring any soul or black hearts.: Since Whore of Babylon is active at half a red heart or less, it will always be active when Empty Vessel is active.

In-game Footage[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]
