Not to be confused with Suicide King (Challenge).
Suicide King is a special card.

If the heart is hurt, Isaac is hurt., Book of ShadowsUpon use, creates a protective shield nullifying all types of damage for 10 seconds., Holy MantleAutomatically negates first taken damage in every room., Unicorn StumpUpon use, grants invulnerability and increased speed for five seconds, but removes the ability to shoot tears., My Little UnicornUpon use, grants invulnerability and increased speed for five seconds, removing the ability to shoot tears and replacing it with the ability to deal contact damage to enemies. and Power Pill.
- If Lazarus' RagsUpon dying, resurrect as Revived Lazarus with one heart container and Anemic item. are used to resurrect, Isaac will only have one heart. This can be detrimental if used with more than one heart container.
- Since using Suicide King means death, Isaac will need to have a resurrection item to make a good use of it, such as 1up!Gives an extra life. Upon death, you will respawn in the previous room with full health and lose the 1up!., the AnkhUpon death, the player will respawn as ??? with 3 soul hearts., the Dead CatSets the amount of red heart containers to 1, but gives Isaac 9 extra lives.

- 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.
- 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".
