The Jar is an activated item.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Isaac can store up to 4 extra red hearts in the jar if there are no remaining empty Heart Containers.
  • When used, all hearts in the jar are dropped on the floor, rather than directly consuming them.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Red hearts are the only type of heart that can be stored. Blended Hearts do not count.
  • If used in a Black Heart or Eternal Heart-containing Super Secret Room, it will spawn those types of hearts instead.
  • If a whole red heart is picked up and Isaac only heals half a heart container, the other half is placed in the jar indicated by the jar number increasing by one. Despite the jar indicating that it picked up a whole red heart in this fashion, it will only drop half a red heart on use. When picking up a double red heart, the jar will also store the remainder not healed in the same way.
  • Co-op babies, with the exception of Magnet Baby, cannot add hearts to the jar as they are unable to interact with pickups.
  • Added in Afterbirth † The Jar will retain its hearts inside the Schoolbag, but the player cannot pick up more hearts while it is inside the Schoolbag.
