Pin is one of the bosses that can appear in The Cellar. It is among the most common to fight, particularly because it can appear on later floors as an enemy.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Sometimes, a Spitty, Conjoined Spitty, or Round Worm can accompany Pin at the start of the battle.

  • Pin will jump out of the ground attempting to ram the player, then burrow back in.
  • Sometimes it can fire four tears diagonally from the last section of its body when jumping out of the ground or/and when burrowing back into the ground.
  • Occasionally sticks its head out of the ground in order to fire an explosive projectile. After doing this attack, Pin will always jump out of the same spot it was when firing, making it easy to predict.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Each segment of Pin can be individually damaged, so a single piercing tear could possibly hit Pin multiple times.
  • Despite looking like it's flying above the ground, Pin is not immune to ground-based effects such as creep when doing its jumping attack. On the contrary, since every segment is guaranteed to pass over the damaging area, it can easily kill it in less than a second..

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Pin was added in the Wrath of the Lamb DLC for the original The Binding of Isaac.
  • Added in Afterbirth The Frail is its posthumous version.
  • In the original Binding of Isaac, Pin had a black champion alternative which shot 6 shots instead of IPECAC shots. This version of Pin doesn't seem to exist in Rebirth.
  • Pin is based off the pinworm, an internal parasite.
  • Pin is likely a reference to Lanmola, a boss from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past; as nearly all attacks are the same.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

Bug Bug! If you fire immediately upon entering the Boss Room, rarely, you can damage Pin before it emerges.
Bug Bug! Added in Afterbirth † If Pin is under the effects of Broken Modem in mid-air, its jump will be stopped and it will fall.
