Telekinesis is an unlockable activated item added in Booster Pack #2.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Upon use, for the next three seconds, any enemy shots that come near Isaac are held in place. After the charge is depleted, they are fired back as tears.
    • The reflected tears always deal 3.5 damage.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

  • 9 Volt 9 Volt9 Volt Icon.pngReduces the charge of any Activated Items by 1. Any 1 charge items instead have timed recharges.: Does not benefit from 9 Volt unlike other auto-recharge items.
  • The Battery The BatteryThe Battery Icon.pngActivated Items can be "overcharged" to allow for an additional use.: A Little Battery has to be picked up for another charge. Both charges are expended at once for a longer-duration effect.
  • Car Battery Car BatteryCar Battery Icon.pngCauses Isaac's activated item to activate twice on each use.: The Car Battery has no effect.
  • Sharp Plug Sharp PlugSharp Plug Icon.pngUsing an activated item while it's not charged will charge it and Sharp Plug does 2 full heart damage to Isaac.: Charge gained from Sharp Plug is expended immediately and won't stop enemy shots.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The tears can be rammed into enemies while they're held by Telekinesis. They won't disappear until the effect ends, but deal no further damage.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Telekinesis is based on this Steam Workshop item by Eufuu, originally known as Telepathy.
  • This item is a reference to Telekinesis, a fictional psychic ability to control items with the mind without any physical interaction.
  • This item and the pickup sprite may be a reference to The Matrix, where the protagonist Neo can stop bullets in mid-air when they are directly in front of him, holding out his right hand exactly how it's represented in the sprite.
