From Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki
| The Adversary|
Behavior[edit | edit source]
- Darkens the room.
- Quickly charges a homing Brimstone
in any cardinal direction if Isaac is in line of fire. This is telegraphed with a very low pitched growl.
Tears are replaced by a laser beam that pierces through all enemies and obstacles in its path and deals high damage. Can only be fired after a short charge-up period.
- 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.
- Host Hat
A host familiar that sits on Isaac's head and has a random chance to block enemy shots and retaliate with 3 tears. Grants immunity to explosions.
make the player immune to The Adversary's shock wave attack, since it is considered to be the same as explosions by the game.
Isaac heals 1 heart instead of taking damage from an explosive source. Adds 5 bombs.
