Added in Afterbirth †

Greed's Gullet is an unlockable passive item added in Afterbirth+.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Grants an extra heart container for every 25 coins Isaac has, up to a maximum of 4 hearts at 99 coins.
    • Dropping below the number of coins required for a heart container removes the heart container.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The extra heart container can exceed the maximum heart container limit of Keeper, allowing him to obtain more than 2 heart containers.
  • Depending on the character used, this item only affects red heart containers, soul hearts (???) or health coins (Keeper). It has no effect on The Lost.
  • The health container gain is not retroactive - picking it up at 99 coins will not grant 4 extra heart containers.
    • However, picking it up at 99 coins and then dropping below 99 coins will lose a heart container, decreasing the feasibility of picking this item up the more coins you have.
      • The player will die if they lose their last form of health as a result of Greed's Gullet.
      • If Keeper drops to under 2 health coins as a result of Greed's Gullet, or by any other means (devil deal, etc.), he is unable to use a HP Up to increase his health back to 2, and has to regain the lost coins to do so.
    • If Greed's Gullet is rerolled away after gaining health, the extra health will be preserved even if the player loses coins afterwards.
      • However, if this happens with Keeper, his health will drop back to 2 health coins upon picking up an item, unless another Greed's Gullet is picked up.
  • Be careful when buying items from the Shop, as it can remove heart containers.
  • Enemies that drain Isaac's coins (such as Keepers, Hangers, Greed, or Super Greed) can remove heart containers.
