Satan is the final boss of Sheol.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

The battle against Satan has three distinct waves.

First phase[edit | edit source]

The first phase starts with a slight delay after Isaac enters the room:
Satan will shout, and roughly two seconds after Satan's voice dies out, The Fallen will spawn at the center, with two Kamikaze Leeches to both of his sides.
Once The Fallen is dead, the second wave starts.

It is advisable to place a bomb at the center shortly before the spawn: When timed right, the explosion will kill both Leeches and the first phase of The Fallen immediately. The best way to do this is by placing the bomb shortly after the sound effect that plays upon entering the room ends.

Second phase[edit | edit source]

Once this is done, Satan will appear/spawn from the statue at the top of the screen in his first form. He stays at the top of the screen, hence bombs are very effective against him. However, if he moves to the side, the bomb will be ineffective.

Patterns[edit | edit source]

  • He will frequently shoot waves of projectiles from both his hands towards the left and right side of the room. The safest spot is directly in front of Satan, but beware of his Brimstone BrimstoneBrimstone Icon.pngTears are replaced by a laser beam that pierces through all enemies and obstacles in its path and deals high damage.

  • He can shoot two slightly homing Brimstone BrimstoneBrimstone Icon.pngTears are replaced by a laser beam that pierces through all enemies and obstacles in its path and deals high damage. Can only be fired after a short charge-up period. lasers (like The Adversary) from his hands when Isaac is on the right or on the left in front of Satan. The safe spot in this case is the center or either corner of the room.
  • When Isaac is at the center of the room, Satan will start an audible charge and emit one thick straight Brimstone BrimstoneBrimstone Icon.pngTears are replaced by a laser beam that pierces through all enemies and obstacles in its path and deals high damage. Can only be fired after a short charge-up period. beam through his mouth.
  • Two scattering shots of 5 and 6 projectiles from Satan's mouth, similar to Gurdy's birthing attack, except aimed directly at Isaac. This attack is virtually untelegraphed and thus is very difficult to avoid.

Once he gets to a third of his life, he enters in his second form, the third phase.

Third phase[edit | edit source]

He attacks by stomping Isaac with both his feet, which come down considerably quicker than Mom's foot. However, the stomps will come down in a constant rhythm: His second hoof follows shortly after the first one, and he redraws each after they have been on screen for about one second (like Mom's foot). Then he will stomp again about two seconds after the second foot has been redrawn.

Up to two Kamikaze Leeches will also spawn during this time. If one of them dies, another one will respawn shortly afterwards.
This can be used to your advantage to have Satan stomp on one of them for considerable damage. However, be very careful not to run into them while evading the feet, which often turns out to be the hardest part of the fight due to their charge attack, their tendency to be obstructed by the legs, as well as the random location new leeches can unexpectedly respawn.

Once Satan dies, the Kamikaze Leeches spawned by him will automatically explode and die.

Unlockable Achievements[edit | edit source]

In addition, beating Satan with a particular character for the first time will unlock the inverted cross Completion Mark on that character's post-it note.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Using the The Bible The BibleThe Bible Icon.png6 roomsUpon activation, Isaac gains flight, allowing him to pass over all obstacles in the current room. Instantly kills Mom, Mom's Heart, and It Lives when activated, but will kill Isaac when activated while fighting Satan. on Satan will instantly kill Isaac, even if Isaac has the The Wafer The WaferThe Wafer Icon.pngAll sources of damage that would cause more than one half heart of damage are reduced to one half heart instead..
  • On the third wave, Pyromaniac PyromaniacPyromaniac Icon.pngIsaac heals 1 heart instead of taking damage from an explosive source. Adds 5 bombs. and/or Added in AfterbirthHost Hat Host HatHost Hat Icon.pngA host familiar that sits on Isaac's head and has a random chance to block enemy shots and retaliate with 3 tears. Grants immunity to explosions. will be extremely useful, as Kamikaze Leeches and stomping (which is considered as an explosion) will not hurt Isaac.
  • Satan's feet don't cause damage on contact for the short time they rest on the ground after a stomp, providing a window of opportunity to deal significant damage with orbitals such as Sacrificial Dagger Sacrificial DaggerSacrificial Dagger Icon.pngDagger orbits Isaac, dealing very high damage., or activate other on-touch effects like Midas' Touch Midas' TouchMidas' Touch Icon.pngEnemies that touch you are stunned and turn gold. Any enemy killed while in this state will drop a coin..

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Satan's pose as a statue and during the VS Screen is a nod to the demon Baphomet, who is usually portrayed in a similar pose.
  • The demonic speech Satan shouts at the start of his first phase reuses one of Mom's voice lines, shouting "Isaac!" in reverse with heavy distortion.
  • The music that plays during this battle is titled Hericide. He​ricide is the act of murdering one's own master, lord, or teacher.
  • In the original Binding Of Isaac, touching Satan's legs dealt a full heart of damage.
