Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Damages all enemies in the room.
    • The damage dealt is equal to Isaac's current tear damage plus 10% of the enemy's max health.
  • Has a 15% chance to drop half red or soul hearts when it damages an enemy.
    • Half red hearts will always drop when the player has at least one red heart container; otherwise, half soul hearts will drop.
    • The amount of enemies damaged does not improve the chance.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • When used on Delirium, this item should be used when it isn't transformed to deal the most damage, as Delirium doesn't have his armor up when in his true form.
  • For enemies that can disappear or go under ground, it only affects them if they are visible.

Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • Car Battery Car Battery: Damage is doubled and two half hearts may be dropped.

In-game Footage[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Before Booster Pack #5, Sharp Straw would instantly kill Big Horn if used while his hands were out due to their arbitrarily high health.
  • Sharp Straw was originally an unofficial item which was supposed to showcase the modding capabilities of Afterbirth+ in the PAX 2016 livestream. However, all items included in the demo were later added to the final game.
    • In the livestream, Sharp Straw had the name 'Isaacula', a different appearance and a recharge time of six rooms.
