We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Grants a chance to fire poison tears, dealing damage over time when inflicted.
  • Inflicts poison on enemies who make contact with the character.
  • Enemies who are killed after they have been inflicted with this type of poison have a 20% chance to drop Black Hearts.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The contact and poison effects of this item are identical to The Virus The Virus , but does not include a Speed down.
  • This item and The Virus The Virus are the two only poison sources to have a chance to drop black hearts.
  • Enemies and bosses with multiple segments, such as Chub and Larry Jr., have a chance to drop multiple Black Hearts.
  • The enemy does not need to be killed by the poison or still be poisoned when killed for the Black Hearts to drop.
  • Although Stonies and Shopkeepers can't be visibly poisoned, they still can drop Black Hearts if destroyed after being touched.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

  • DLC Indicator.png Tech X Tech X : The laser will poison enemies but never generates black hearts.
  • Technology Technology : The laser will poison enemies but never generates black hearts.
  • Technology 2 Technology 2 : The laser will poison enemies but never generates black hearts.

Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • DLC Indicator.png Athame Athame : The black ring created by the Athame applies the poison from Serpent's Kiss. This means enemies killed will have a higher chance to drop black hearts.
  • Invulnerability: Contact while invincible poisons enemies.
  • Afterbirth† Indicator.png Euthanasia Euthanasia /Afterbirth† Indicator.png Little Horn Little Horn : Allows harvesting endless black hearts from Stone Grimaces as they can be (invisibly) poisoned by touching them, then destroyed with Euthanasia/Little Horn and made to respawn by leaving the room.
  • Scorpio Scorpio : Grants the character a 100% chance of firing poison tears.
  • DLC Indicator.png Second Hand Second Hand : Extends the duration that enemies stay poisoned, dealing more damage over time.
  • Soy Milk Soy Milk : The low damage and high fire rate increases the chance of enemies and bosses being poisoned.
  • The Common Cold The Common Cold : Adds to the chance of firing poison tears, based on the character's Luck stat.
