Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • Aries AriesAries Icon.png+0.25 Speed. Running into enemies while at a high speed will deal 18 points of damage. Does not prevent contact damage. - Isaac is able to continuously damage enemies for 18 points while invincible, without the normal drawback of taking damage.
  • Blood Rights Blood RightsBlood Rights Icon.pngUnlimitedDamages all enemies in the room, but deals a heart of damage to Isaac with each use. - While Isaac is invincible, Blood Rights can be freely used without taking damage. This trivializes many rooms, and since Taurus can activate every room, this combination can be game-changing, especially if Isaac has high base speed.
  • Gnawed Leaf Gnawed LeafGnawed Leaf Icon.pngAfter standing still and not shooting for a short time, Isaac turns invincible until he moves or shoots. - Isaac's speed will increase while in statue form, allowing the invincibility effect to activate without risking taking damage.
  • Libra LibraLibra Icon.pngGives 6 coins, 6 bombs, and 6 keys and balances out all attributes. - Isaac's damage and range increases as speed increases. However, if Isaac's base speed is not high enough, the invincibility never activates.
  • The Ludovico Technique The Ludovico TechniqueThe Ludovico Technique Icon.pngInstead of firing tears, Isaac controls one floating tear that hover over obstacles. This tear deals constant damage when held in place over an enemy. - Isaac cannot control the tear while invincible, but any enemies touching it will still take damage from it.
  • Midas' Touch Midas' TouchMidas' Touch Icon.pngEnemies that touch you are stunned and turn gold. Any enemy killed while in this state will drop a coin. - Running into enemies while invincible will freeze them, and killing them will drop coins, allowing for very rapid coin generation.
  • Mom's Knife Mom's KnifeMom's Knife Icon.pngIsaac's tears are replaced by a knife that pierces enemies, can travel through obstacles, and can hurt enemies while Isaac is holding it. Holding down the fire button before firing increases its range and power. - Allows Isaac to stab enemies in close contact, dealing massive damage without fear of taking contact damage.
  • Roid Rage Roid RageRoid Rage Icon.pngIncreases speed by 0.6, range by 5.25, and tear height by 0.5. - As Isaac's speed is considerably increased, it's easier to reach the invincibility form.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This item, like the other Zodiac items, is a reference to the Zodiac signs.
  • If you are invincible as a result of having this item when you touch the chest after the ??? (Boss) fight, the music during the credits will still be sped up. The music during Ending 14 and its "The End" screen will play as normal, however (This has not been confirmed for other endings or items that cause music to distort).
