Incubus Defeat Hush as Lilith
Added in Afterbirth

Incubus is an unlockable passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Spawns a demonic familiar that fires tears.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Lilith starts with this item, even if it has not been unlocked. It is her primary method of attacking, as she is blindfolded and cannot fire tears normally.
    • Lilith's starting Incubus is technically not a collected item but an intrinsic part of the character, and is removed if an item such as Ankh Ankh or Added in Afterbirth †Clicker Clicker are used to become a different character. As such, playing as Lilith will not add Incubus to the collection page.
  • Incubus is one of the familiars that can be spawned by Cambion Conception Cambion Conception.
  • If an Incubus is acquired through Cambion Conception Cambion Conception or by starting with it as Lilith, another Incubus can still be found normally. Lilith can also receive one from Cambion Conception Cambion Conception in addition to the one she starts with, and if this occurs, Box of Friends Box of Friends will produce only one extra Incubus.
  • Incubus ignores the shot speed and range stats completely. Only tear height, which is included in most range-increasing items, has an effect on Incubus' range.
  • When The Forgotten has the Incubus, it will fire bone tears like Added in Afterbirth †Compound Fracture Compound Fracture without the splitting effect.

Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • Azazel / Brimstone Brimstone: Incubus can charge a Brimstone attack while still firing the previous laser, allowing it to fire more rapidly than normal.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

  • Added in Afterbirth †Analog Stick Analog Stick: Incubus cannot fire in non-cardinal directions, only tears up applies.
  • Cricket's Body Cricket's Body: The range decrease is ignored for the main tears, but not for the split ones.
  • Cursed Eye Cursed Eye: No effect.
    • Added in Afterbirth † A burst of 3 tears is fired at the regular tear delay without needing to charge.
  • Dead Eye Dead Eye: The damage multiplier can be raised by Isaac's tears, but not by Incubus' tears. Incubus tears still receive the damage boost.
  • Dead Onion Dead Onion: Shot speed is not affected, but the range is decreased slightly due to tear height.
  • Epic Fetus Epic Fetus: Isaac shoots guided missiles while Incubus still shoots normal tears.
  • Evil Eye Evil Eye: Incubus is unable to fire Evil Eye shots.
  • Added in Afterbirth †Eye of Greed Eye of Greed: Incubus is unable to fire golden tears.
  • Added in Afterbirth †Flat Stone Flat Stone: The effective range of Incubus' tears is roughly doubled, with a single bounce in the middle of the flight.
  • Guillotine Guillotine: Incubus will fire tears in relative position to its body depending on where Isaac's head is currently.
  • Added in Afterbirth †Ghost Pepper Ghost Pepper: No effect on Incubus.
  • Isaac's Tears Isaac's Tears: The item is recharged by Isaac's tears, not Incubus'. This item works with Lilith.
  • Kidney Stone Kidney Stone: Incubus ignores range down from item and will fire tear barrage but not the stone.
  • Added in Afterbirth †Large Zit Large Zit: No effect on Incubus.
  • Loki's Horns Loki's Horns: No effect on Incubus.
  • The Ludovico Technique The Ludovico Technique: Spawns a controllable tear while retaining the ability to fire normal tears. Incubus' tears become piercing and spectral.
  • Maw of the Void Maw of the Void: Damage increased. Incubus will not trigger the void ring.
  • Marked Marked: Fire rate increased. Incubus fires continuously in the direction the character is facing.
  • Mom's Eye Mom's Eye: No effect on Incubus.
  • Mongo Baby Mongo Baby: Does not copy Incubus's tear effects.
  • My Reflection My Reflection: Since Incubus ignores shot speed the tears turn back very quickly, greatly reducing effective range.
  • R U a Wizard?: No effect on Incubus.
  • Tech.5 Tech.5: No effect on Incubus.
  • Tech X Tech X: Incubus shoots small, fixed-size Tech X laser rings, with a very slightly longer minimum charge than Isaac.
  • Technology 2 Technology 2: No effect on Incubus other than a damage down.
  • Tractor Beam Tractor Beam: Range increased, but the trajectory is unaffected.

In-game Footage[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In folklore, incubi are evil spirits said to descend upon sleeping people, specifically ones fabled to have sexual intercourse with women during their sleep, or, more simply put, the male version of a succubus.
