Strange Attractor is a passive item.

Effect[edit | edit source]

  • Monsters, pickups, and trinkets are magnetically attracted to the player character's tears.
    • Added in Afterbirth This also applies to Isaac's bombs.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Extra caution must be taken when using this item, as the attraction effect will pull small, lightweight monsters like Boom Flies towards the character very fast and in an unpredictable manner, with the consequent risk of taking damage.

Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • Brimstone Brimstone: Enemies and pickups are sucked towards the beam, increasing accuracy significantly.
  • Dr. Fetus Dr. Fetus: Enemies are sucked towards bombs, increasing accuracy and making enemies easier to kill.
  • Godhead Godhead: Enemies will be pulled into Godhead's damaging aura, increasing the aura's effectiveness at causing damage.
  • Ipecac Ipecac: Enemies and pickups are pulled towards the shots, increasing accuracy. The color of shots and their explosive effect is a darker green.
  • Mom's Knife Mom's Knife: Enemies are pulled towards the knife. The effect is minor while not firing and much stronger while the knife is launched.
  • Added in Afterbirth †Nose Goblin Nose Goblin/Added in Afterbirth †Sinus Infection Sinus Infection: Attraction effect will remain on the booger shot stuck to an enemy. This can drag the enemy across the whole room until they reach one wall and get stuck on it, effectively disabling their normal movement.
  • Technology Technology/Technology 2 Technology 2/Tech.5 Tech.5: The beam will attract enemies, often sucking them into the beam and holding them there.
  • Added in AfterbirthTech X Tech X: Enemies and pickups are attracted to the outer ring, increasing accuracy.
  • The Ludovico Technique The Ludovico Technique: Enemies, items, and even most bosses will be sucked to the single floating tear, dealing constant damage while keeping Isaac well away from harm, making this combination extremely effective in almost all scenarios.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

  • Cricket's Body Cricket's Body/Added in Afterbirth †Compound Fracture Compound Fracture: Since tears will split into more tears, all traveling different directions, enemies will be randomly moved around.
  • Epic Fetus Epic Fetus: Overrides Strange Attractor.
    • Added in Afterbirth Epic Fetus Epic Fetus: Enemies get drawn towards the target mark on the ground, ensuring that the missile will hit.
  • Added in AfterbirthExplosivo Explosivo: Enemies will be pulled toward the stuck on tears, dragging them helplessly or grouping them for the explosion.
  • Added in Afterbirth †Haemolacria Haemolacria: Enemies and pickups are attracted to the main tear, but not burst tears.
  • Added in Afterbirth †Lachryphagy Lachryphagy: Enemies will often get sucked into tears, making it more difficult to feed tears or let them burst.
  • Monstro's Lung Monstro's Lung: Due to the high concentration of tears, enemies will be pulled towards Isaac at great force; in certain cases, enough force will be generated to pull enemies through rocks. This can greatly increase accuracy but depending on enemies' movements and positions can also damage Isaac.
  • The Parasite The Parasite: Enemies will be pulled towards both fired tears and split tears. However, because they both travel in opposite directions, the split tears' magnetic effects tend to cancel each other out.
  • Rubber Cement Rubber Cement: Due to tears being reflected, enemies tend to be pulled towards Isaac with much force. Additionally, the random angle of tears being reflected results in erratic enemy movement. Not recommended.
  • Soy Milk Soy Milk: The rapid tears will pull enemies quickly and erratically around the room. Not recommended.
