The Chest is one of the final levels in The Binding of Isaac, alongside the Dark Room Dark Room and The Void The Void.

The Chest can be accessed with three methods: Touching the chest dropped by Isaac while having The Polaroid The PolaroidThe Polaroid Icon.pngIf the character has half a red heart or no red hearts after taking damage, it triggers the Book Of Shadows effect, creating a shield that nullifies all types of damage for 5 seconds. Also allows entrance into The Chest. (always dropped by Mom after beating Isaac five times) equipped, or, while in the Cathedral Cathedral, by using Telepills or another item that acts like Telepills, and being sent to the I AM ERROR room, or finding a black market on the Cathedral and going into the beam of light.

Like the Cathedral before it, The Chest consists of only one floor. In The Chest, it is not possible to bomb doors open to skip rooms. The Chest's rooms are mainly filled with bosses and mini-bosses. The boss of the floor is always ???.

The first room in The Chest will automatically contain 4 golden chests. These special chests always contain treasure room items. Additionally, all brown and golden chests spawned in The Chest will always contain Treasure Room Items. This means that a lot of different items can be found in The Chest when clearing rooms with items or effects that raise the chance of spawning chests. This can be useful when trying to complete the collection page.

After completing The Chest or the Dark Room for the first time, the first room of The Chest will always contain a large golden door, which can be unlocked with either the Key Pieces (combination of Key Piece 1 Key Piece 1Key Piece 1 Icon.pngCombined with Key Piece 2, unlocks the golden gate in the starting room of The Chest and Dark Room to fight Mega Satan. and Key Piece 2 Key Piece 2Key Piece 2 Rebirth Icon.pngCombined with Key Piece 1, unlocks the golden gate in the starting room of The Chest and Dark Room to fight Mega Satan.), Dad's Key Dad's KeyDad's Key Icon.png2 roomsOpens all doors in the current room when activated, including doors which require a key to open and entrances to secret rooms.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Chest and its boss, ???, are based on the in-game backstory of Isaac locking himself in his toy chest and asphyxiating to death.
  • The sprite appearance of ??? is a reference to Edmund McMillen's Dead Baby games, which are often referenced throughout The Binding Of Isaac.
  • The texture of the floor may have a small chance of showing two small glowing dots which look like eyes.
  • Like in the Dark Room Dark Room, bombing the doors to open them doesn't work on this floor.
  • The shadow cast on the floor most likely resembles Isaac's head while opening the chest.

Music[edit | edit source]

  • The music for the chest is titled Sketches of Pain.
