Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Power Pill will not protect Isaac from dying.

Uses[edit | edit source]

  • Since using Suicide King means death, Isaac will need to have a resurrection item to make a good use of it, such as 1up! 1up!1up! Icon.pngGives an extra life. Upon death, you will respawn in the previous room with full health and lose the 1up!., the Ankh AnkhAnkh Icon.pngUpon death, the player will respawn as ??? with 3 soul hearts., the Dead Cat Dead CatDead Cat Icon.pngSets the amount of red heart containers to 1, but gives Isaac 9 extra lives. After dying, Isaac is teleported to the last safe room. New heart containers can be obtained after picking up this item, but after each death, the number of heart containers is set to 1 again., or being Lazarus.
    • When combined with Blank Card Blank CardBlank Card Icon.png4 roomsHas the same effect as the card or rune currently held by Isaac. and Dead Cat Dead CatDead Cat Icon.pngSets the amount of red heart containers to 1, but gives Isaac 9 extra lives. After dying, Isaac is teleported to the last safe room. New heart containers can be obtained after picking up this item, but after each death, the number of heart containers is set to 1 again., the card can be used nine times (spawning a total of 90 consumables).
  • Suicide King won't always drop a pedestal item, but often drops numerous Chests, meaning that using Suicide King on a Special Room or in the Dark Room/The Chest can be useful to get good items.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • When Suicide King causes a Game Over (i.e. is used with no revive items), a picture of the last cause of damage will appear on Isaac's last will as the cause of death.
  • The background color for the Suicide King achievement has the same color as all the Boss Rush unlocks, suggesting that the Suicide King card was originally intended to be unlocked via completing a Boss Rush, with Lazarus.
  • The Suicide King is the king of hearts in a standard card deck. It is called this because the character on the card is seemingly thrusting his sword into his own head.
  • The card quote reinforces the idea proposed by Reddit user Jayborino. That the only way for Isaac to get out of the chest in the "real world", is to die in the game.
    • This user was praised by Edmund himself for his article being "mind blowingly accurate".
