Disambig.png This article is about the explosion immunity item. For the item that grants bombs, see Pyro.

Pyromaniac is a Special passive item.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • +5 bombs
  • All explosions heal Isaac for one red heart instead of damaging him. If Isaac has no red heart containers or full health, no damage is taken.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Makes the player immune to Mom's, Satan's, and other enemies' stomp attacks, making those fights substantially less difficult.
    • Due to the immunity to Mom's stomping attack, Mom's Toenail Mom's Toenail has improved usefulness.
  • Makes the player immune to The Cage's, The Adversary's, and Mega Satan's rock wave attack.
  • The item is unable to produce Soul Hearts, Black Hearts, or Eternal Hearts, making Pyromaniac a little less effective if used with ??? or The Lost. However, these characters still gain immunity to explosions.
  • Also makes the player immune to the projectiles from Red Fireplaces.
  • Added in Afterbirth † Ultra Greed's second form in Greedier Mode uses explosive attacks almost exclusively. As a result, Pyromaniac makes characters nearly invulnerable against him.

Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • Dr. Fetus Dr. Fetus, Epic Fetus Epic Fetus, Ipecac Ipecac - Explosions heal Isaac, essentially making him invincible as long as he has more than one red heart container and a decent rate of fire.
  • Fire Mind Fire Mind - Explosions caused by tears can be used for healing
  • Kamikaze! Kamikaze! - Allows immortality and infinite explosions for free.
  • Mom's Toenail Mom's Toenail - Becomes immune to the stomp.
  • Piggy Bank Piggy Bank, Fanny Pack Fanny Pack, Swallowed Penny Swallowed Penny - When used in conjunction with explosions, can be used to very slowly gain an infinite amount of money or pickups.
