Added in Afterbirth

God's Flesh is a passive item added in Afterbirth.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Tears now have a random chance to apply a shrinking effect, causing enemies to shrink in size and also run away from Isaac.
    • Shrunk enemies can be crushed and killed by walking over them.
  • Added in Afterbirth This item belongs to the Fun Guy set. Collecting three items from this set will transform Isaac into a walking mushroom.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The shrinking effect has no effect on bosses or mini-bosses.
  • Any enemies that are spawned from the death of a shrunken enemy do not carry over the shrunken effect.
  • Champions and enemies that explode upon death will damage Isaac if crushed.
  • Shrinking a Heart monster will cause its corresponding Mask to shrink as well. The Mask can be crushed and killed separately.
  • The chance to fire a shrinking tear does not scale with Luck.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The term God's flesh is a nickname for psychedelic mushrooms.
  • In Aztec culture, hallucinogenic mushrooms were eaten during religious ceremonies. The Aztec name for these mushrooms translates to "god's flesh".
  • Using God's Flesh on a Rag Man head will shrink it and reveal that there is actually a very small invisible body underneath.
  • This item may be a reference to the Shrinker (or Shrink Ray) item in Duke Nukem 3D. When used on an enemy, it shrinks into a smaller version of itself where it can be stepped on and killed.
