Little Horn is one of the bosses added in the expansion The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth that can appear in all environments of Chapter 1.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

  • Will constantly try to evade Isaac by moving away from him.
  • Spawns a smoking black ball that chases Isaac and can be destroyed.
  • Creates and jumps into a Pitfall and pops up elsewhere.
  • Creates 3 to 5 Teleport Pitfalls that move outwards and damage Isaac if he falls into one.
  • Throws a troll bomb or a mega troll bomb into a created pitfall underneath itself. The bomb then pops up in a random location.
  • Creates a regular pitfall under itself that does not move but lasts for several seconds and damages Isaac if he falls into it.
  • Jumps into a pitfall and appears elsewhere while spawning a troll bomb in his place, and repeats this process numerous times.

Added in Afterbirth † Champion versions[edit | edit source]

  • Orange: Spits out an orange Troll Bomb instead of a black ball. The bomb deals contact damage and leaves a patch of fire similar to Hot Bombs. The bombs that are thrown into pits are also orange, but the bombs spawned during the constant teleportation attack are normal.
  • Black: Does not attack with Pits or troll bombs, but fires smoke balls more frequently. He can still do the constant teleportation attack, but he doesn't spawn any bombs.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Little Horn's health bar appears at the bottom of the screen rather than the top.
  • The Gnawed Leaf Gnawed LeafGnawed Leaf Icon.pngAfter standing still and not shooting for a short time, Isaac turns invincible until he moves or shoots. can make the battle infinitely easier, as Little Horn will damage himself with his bombs over time. This will take a while, but none of his attacks can deal damage to Isaac when he stands still. Isaac can still fall into the pits and be transported around the screen, and will appear to suffer damage, but no actual loss of HP will occur if he is in statue form when he falls in.
  • The smoke balls that Little Horn spawns can appear in Closets in Caves and Flooded Caves. They also appear in a room with Little Horn in the Chest.
  • If Isaac has the Safety Scissors Safety ScissorsSafety Scissors Icon.pngTroll bombs turn into Bomb pickups before they explode. Mega troll bombs turn into 1+1 free bombs before they explode., he can acquire maximum bombs from the fight at fairly little risk, since the bombs Little Horn spawns will turn into bomb pickups and all his hole attacks are easy to dodge.
  • Little Horn's homing black ball is considered a monster. Killing it will activate items such as Charm of the Vampire Charm of the VampireCharm of the Vampire Icon.pngHeals the character for half of a red heart for every 13 monsters killed., Infestation 2 Infestation 2Infestation 2 Icon.pngSpawns allied blue spiders from killed enemies., andJar of Flies Jar of FliesJar of Flies Afterbirth Icon.pngUnlimitedEvery time Isaac kills an enemy, a fly will be added to the jar, up to a maximum of 20. Using the Jar of Flies will release all the flies that are currently in the jar as friendly blue flies that will damage enemies..
  • Occasionally, a pitfall that Little Horn summons will not vanish after defeating the boss. The pitfall is still active and can damage Isaac, even if it does not actively chase the player.
