Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The usual tactic is to stay behind The Bloat and dodge any projectiles he may shoot behind him. If he backs himself to the back wall, try to shoot him diagonally or wait for him to use another move before attempting to strike him side ways or from behind. Bombs are highly recommended to be used here if you are a new player.
  • If you stay at his right or left, but not high enough, his brimstone-like attack will be fired, but it won't hit you. It is recommended to do so to get a few free hits.
  • If you start the fight directly below him or to his left or right, move out of the way immediately to avoid getting hit by an immediate Brimstone BrimstoneBrimstone Rebirth Icon.pngTears are replaced by a laser beam that pierces through all enemies and obstacles in its path and deals high damage.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Bloat was added in the Wrath of the Lamb DLC for the original The Binding of Isaac.
  • Bloat is a medical condition in which the stomach becomes overstretched by excessive gas content.
  • Corpses also bloat during decomposition due to the excessive build-up of gas-releasing bacteria. Due to being an undead version of Peep, this phenomenon could possibly be what the Bloat’s name is referencing.
  • The Bloat's eyeballs look slightly different than Peep's.
  • Added in Afterbirth † The Aprils Fool challenge replaces all bosses with The Bloat as a reference to the exceptional hatred some fans express toward this boss.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

Bug Bug! The Bloat's Eye has the same collision radius as The Bloat itself, which results in the eye being difficult to dodge since the hitbox doesn't match up with the eye's visual size.
