IV Bag is an activated item.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • When activated, causes Isaac to lose half a heart (or a full heart in The Womb and beyond) while spawning 1-3 coins.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This effect is counted as inflicted damage for the purpose of items that spawn pickups upon damage, such as Gimpy or Fanny Pack, but does not count against the chance of encountering the Devil Room.
  • Invulnerability will not prevent Isaac from losing hearts.
  • Spawns 0-1 coins when playing as Keeper.
  • If down to half a heart (or a full heart in The Womb and beyond), it will take soul or black hearts instead of red hearts.
  • When playing as the Lost, using the item will be an instant kill through Holy Mantle.
  • Since using the IV Bag still causes invulnerability, using it just before getting hit, walking over spikes, or going through a Sacrifice Room will grant coins without inflicting extra damage.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • A glitch in the original Binding of Isaac existed where the player could leave a room and activate the item during the invincibility frames offered during recovery of using the items, effectively spawning infinite coins. This bug has been fixed in The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth.
