The Mulligan is a passive item.

Effect[edit | edit source]

  • Tears have a 1/6 chance of spawning allied blue flies when they hit an enemy.
  • This item belongs to the Beelzebub set. Collecting three items from the set will transform Isaac into a giant humanoid fly.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Because the Guppy transformation includes the guaranteed ability to spawn flies on hit, the Mulligan's effect is nullified. This means individual tears cannot spawn more than one fly per hit.
  • This item does not work for Lilith since the Added in AfterbirthIncubus IncubusIncubus Icon.pngA demonic familiar that follows Isaac and shoots tears identical to Isaac's in terms of damage, range, fire rate, and effects. tears do not count for her own tears.
  • Items and trinkets that increase tear firing rate synergize well with the Mulligan.
  • This item is not affected by Luck.
