The Adversary is the posthumous version of Dark One and is one of the bosses that appear in Chapter 3.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

  • Darkens the room.
  • Quickly charges a homing Brimstone Brimstone in any cardinal direction if Isaac is in line of fire. This is telegraphed with a very low pitched growl.
  • Flies off-screen and plummets down a few seconds later, creating a shock wave that throws up damaging terrain (like The Cage, although not as far, and the terrain travels in all directions) that subsides when it reaches the radius of roughly three tiles.
  • Occasionally summons Spiders.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Brimstone attack's homing effect is stronger as it gets farther away from The Adversary. It is much easier to avoid by staying close and being ready to pivot around him via quarter circle dodges when he telegraphs the attack.
  • If there is a room containing two Adversaries, their Brimstone shots may be unavoidable if fired from both sides of the room simultaneously.
  • DLC Indicator.png Host Hat Host Hat and Pyromaniac Pyromaniac make the player immune to The Adversary's shock wave attack, since it is considered to be the same as explosions by the game.

 3DS  When The Adversary darkens the room, you can pause the game and the room will eventually brighten again while still in the pause screen. This also works with Dark One.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • "The adversary" is one of the ways that the original Hebrew word "ha-satan" can be translated.
  • Adversary is the name of a level in Super Meat Boy, which Edmund, part of Team Meat at the time, worked on.
  • The Adversary seems to be the Dark One that got severely injured, though what could have caused such injury is unknown. It is thought that it could possibly be from an earlier defeat by the player.
  • The Adversary has a bandage on his horn in-game, but he does not on his boss portrait.
