Kamikaze! is an activated item.

Effect[edit | edit source]

  • Upon activation, causes an explosion in the same place as Isaac, damaging him for half a heart and dealing 40 damage to all monsters caught in the blast.
  • Unlike IV Bag IV Bag, Isaac will not take damage from using it while he has invincibility, which means it can be used after getting hit.
  • It has a cooldown that lasts as long as the invincibility after taking damage, preventing Isaac from using it a second time for free.
