The dark friendly chargers act like normal chargers and will charge at enemies when they have a chance. They will attack enemies until they run out of hp either from contact with enemies or hazards (e.g. spikes or fireplace).

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The allied chargers are affected by mass slowdown effects from items such as the Stop Watch Stop Watch, granting the Shadow Chargers a disadvantage.
  • If Isaac has homing tears, they will home in on allied chargers.
  • The allied chargers will take damage from any sort of explosion, Added in Afterbirth † except from your own general explosions, though certain synergies involving Scatter Bombs Scatter Bombs may kill the Friendly charger.
  • With Punching Bag Punching Bag, the allied chargers may attack the Punching Bag instead of enemies. It is recommended you don't take these two items together as they don't synergize well.
    • Added in Afterbirth † This bug has been fixed.
