The Headless Horseman is a Boss that has a chance of replacing any other Horsemen Isaac could meet.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

The Headless Horseman consists of two entities: The head and the body. The 2 will keep attacking Isaac independently as soon as combat starts.

Head[edit | edit source]

  • The head shoots 3 bullets at Isaac.
  • The head charges across the screen 3 times.

Body[edit | edit source]

  • The body continuously lobs explosive shots at Isaac.
    • Shots leave behind a damaging puddle of Red creep.
    • This behavior is similar to Pestilence's 2nd stage, except without his fly spawning ability.

Gallery[edit | edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • In several normal rooms, the Headless Horseman's head appears on its own without its body.
    • Two or three of the Headless Horseman's heads can be found in the same normal rooms.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Headless Horseman appeared in the original The Binding of Isaac.
  • The Headless Horseman has been a common motif in Europe since the middle ages.
  • The boss art shows the head with both eyes even though the in-game sprite only has one.
  • The boss art shows the horse's head as brown even though its in-game sprite is black.
  • The Delirium form's horse appears more similar to Famine's horse than The Headless Horseman's.
