Gapers are monsters that resemble Isaac, but have blood instead of tears, and their skin is more pale. Gapers are commonly found in The Basement and Cellar.

Gapers will attempt to walk towards Isaac by taking the most direct route possible. If there is no way to reach Isaac, due to obstacles such as rocks or poop blocking the way, they will stand still and avoid moving towards Isaac until a proper route is created.

On occasion, they can turn into Pacers or Gushers after dying.

Gurgles are enemies that look identical to Frowning Gapers and are very common in The Catacombs The Catacombs. They are green and have at least quadruple the health of a normal Gaper. When they get near Isaac, they fire an Ipecac IpecacIpecac Icon.pngReplaces tears with explosive and poisoning projectiles fired in an arc from the mouth. shot at him. Killing it has a small chance for it to become a Splasher.

They fire Ipecac shots at Isaac at very short range. These shots will kill other enemies in their Area of Effect, but Gurgles themselves are immune to their own shots. Like other enemies' explosive projectiles, Gurgles' shots can be used to shatter Rocks or open secret rooms by making Gurgles fire at the appropriate area.

Gurgles are somewhat more predictable and accurate in their shots compared to guts and walking guts, because they will always shoot at Isaac's position. However, the timing of their shots is unpredictable. As such, an effective strategy of delivering explosives to a particular area (e.g. tinted rock or potential secret room entrance) is to stand still in that position as long as possible before moving to avoid getting touched, in order to prompt the Gurgles to shoot their projectiles at you.

Skinnies are a version of the Gaper with melted faces and a very small creep trail behind them. Skinnies travel much slower than normal Gapers, making them easy to kill without receiving damage.

Crispies are a Skinny variant added in Booster Pack #5. They initially start out slow, but will turn darker in color until it becomes crispy black and begin to chase the player at a much faster pace as they take damage. They also take damage regardless of Isaac every few moments.

Nulls appear fairly rarely in the Depths and below. They behave similarly to Frowning Gapers, but walk faster and have the ability to phase in and out of visibility.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • In chapter 3, Nulls are most commonly encountered in a 2x2 room layout, where six of them are encased in the center, unable to chase Isaac. Isaac has to blast away some skulls first to open the path to them. Flight as well as spectral tears do very well here, as the player can fly in, drop a bomb, and leave, and the enemies will remain stationary where they were last chasing the player.
  • White Champion Nulls may not be able to turn invisible while invincible.

Bug Bug! If an Explosivo tear is stuck to a Null, when it becomes invisible, the tear will fall to the ground.
Bug Bug! If a Champion Gaper is killed and it turns into a Pacer/Gusher, it will no longer be a champion.
