Disambig.png This article is about the item. For the chapter, see The Void.

Void is an unlockable activated item added in Afterbirth †. Apollyon starts with this item.

Effect[edit | edit source]

  • Upon use, destroys all pedestal items in the room.
    • If Void destroys an active item, it gains the ability of that item - whenever Void is used, it will simultaneously use all previous active items that were absorbed.
    • If Void destroys a passive item, the player gains 2 random stat boosts. Possible stat changes include:
      • +1 flat damage
      • +0.5 tears
      • +0.2 speed and maximum speed (may never exceed 2.0)
      • +0.2 shot speed
      • +1 luck
      • +0.5 range
      • If tears or speed are at their maximum and are chosen, there will be no visible increase.
    • Void does not work on devil deal, black market, or shop items unless they have been bought first.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Void does not consume unpurchased items in devil deals, black markets, or shops.
  • Using Void to absorb items in Boss Rush or challenge rooms counts as taking the items and will cause waves of bosses or enemies to start spawning.
  • The ability of the newly absorbed active item(s) will activate even if the item has no charge. Using any multiple-use item before absorbing it with Void will effectively allow you to use the item twice.
  • If one finds another Void, such as during a Victory Lap where it is left behind in the previous lap, it will have the same active effects stored in it as the other Void.
    • Consuming a second Void will create no effect.
  • If multiple copies of an active item are absorbed, using Void will activate that effect equally many times.
  • Absorbing items that would normally count towards transformations upon pickup does not give progress toward transformations.
  • Apollyon will start with this item even before it is unlocked.
  • Stat boosts upon destroying passive items are determined by the seed and are tied to the number of items destroyed, not the items themselves. If the player runs the same seed and chooses to consume different passive items, the same stat boosts will be gained.
  • Stat boosts are permanent and are retained if Void is dropped.

Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • Breath of Life Breath of LifeCollectible Breath of Life icon.png6 secondsGrants a brief moment of invincibility when the charge bar hits zero. If the spacebar is held for an additional second after hitting zero, Isaac will take damage.: Immediately grants invincibility frames.

If the effect fails, the items and pickups disappear.: Using Void with the Crooked Penny absorbed will result in items in the room being absorbed as usual, but afterwards new copies of the items or one coin are spawned.
  • Delirious DeliriousCollectible Delirious icon.png12 roomsSpawns a random charmed boss. /Mega Blast Mega BlastCollectible Mega Blast Afterbirth icon.png12 roomsUpon use, Isaac fires a laser similar to the one used by Mega Satan. This laser deals massive damage, lasts for approximately 15 seconds, and persists between rooms. Isaac is pushed backwards by the force of the laser while it is active.: Allows it to be used every 6 rooms instead of 12 and batteries will fully charge the item.
  • More Options More OptionsCollectible More Options icon.pngTwo items spawn in every Treasure Room. Only one can be taken; the other will disappear. / There's Options There's OptionsCollectible There's Options icon.pngThere will be 2 items available to choose from after defeating a boss.

Opens doors to the floor's secret and super secret rooms. /Mystery Gift Mystery GiftCollectible Mystery Gift icon.pngOne time useUpon use, spawns a random item from the current room's item pool, with a chance to spawn A Lump of Coal or The Poop instead.: Single-use items are used once upon being destroyed, but their effects are not absorbed and will not activate with subsequent Void uses.
    • Sacrificial Altar Sacrificial AltarCollectible Sacrificial Altar icon.pngOne time useUpon use, sacrifices up to 2 familiars and spawns an item from the Devil Room Pool for each familiar sacrificed. is properly absorbed, unlike other one-time use items, allowing Isaac to sacrifice familiars and obtain Devil Room items with each activation of Void. Possibly a glitch or oversight.

  • Clicker ClickerCollectible Clicker icon.png6 roomsTransforms Isaac into another random character.: If Void is either Isaac's only item or the item most recently picked up, it will be lost upon absorbing and thus activating the Clicker.
  • The D6 The D6The D6 Icon.png6 roomsAllows Isaac to re-roll collectible items in the current room into other items, depending on the current room's Item Pool.: If absorbed while there are other pedestal items in the room, it will reroll the items before absorbing them. Likewise, if The D6 was previously absorbed and Void is used, pedestal items will get rerolled before being absorbed.
  • Glowing Hour Glass Glowing Hour GlassCollectible Glowing Hour Glass icon.png2 roomsWhen used, this item will rewind time, put Isaac back in the previous room, and undo anything that happened in the current room. Any health, pickups, or items gained or lost will be reset back to the previous state.: Upon using Void, Isaac is sent to the previous room and most changes are reverted, nullifying many other effects that Void may have absorbed. If the Glass is absorbed in a shop, Isaac is sent back to the previous room, but the Glass will be unused in the shop on its pedestal. This allows for an infinite shop donation circle, eliminating the need for a battery to be present in the shop.
  • How to Jump How to JumpCollectible How to Jump icon.pngUnlimitedGives Isaac the ability to jump (over gaps, spikes, etc.).: Be wary with this combination; without an infinite recharge, it is possible to jump to a spot that there is no way of returning from.

While held, increases luck by 1 and doubles the effects of trinkets.: Drops a trinket every time the Void is used. The other passive effects of holding the box do not apply to the user.
  • Moving Box Moving BoxCollectible Moving Box icon.png4 roomsIf the box is empty, picks up all items and pickups in a room and stores them. If the box is not empty, places all stored items and pickups in the current room.: Moving Box will not be added to Void; instead, it is converted into stat boosts like a passive item.
  • A Pony A PonyCollectible A Pony icon.png4 roomsPassively grants flight and increased speed. Upon use, Isaac charges in the direction the pony is facing, becoming invulnerable during the charge and damaging enemies.: Absorbing it with Void will not give a passive ability to fly; however, Isaac will still charge in the first direction chosen.
  • Remote Detonator Remote DetonatorRemote Detonator Icon.pngUnlimitedBombs you place explode only when you use this item. Gives 5 bombs.: Absorbing it with Void does not cause bombs to remain on the ground until Void is used, but using Void explodes all player-placed bombs as usual.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • When this item was originally teased, it had a recharge counter of four and converted pickups into blue flies; in its release, it was nerfed to a recharge counter of six and the effect on pickups was split to an entirely new item altogether.
  • Before the balance patch on 5 January 2017, Void synergized with single-use items and constantly trigger them upon each use of Void; this has since been removed.
  • Void is one of only four items to appear in both the Angel and Devil item pools, the others being 7 Seals 7 Seals7 Seals icon.pngGrants a random Harbinger familiar that changes every 10 seconds., Lil Delirium Lil DeliriumCollectible Lil Delirium icon.pngGrants a familiar that transforms into another random familiar every 10 seconds., and Duality DualityCollectible Duality icon.pngWhenever a Devil or Angel Room would spawn after defeating a boss, both rooms spawn. Only one can be entered..

Bugs[edit | edit source]

Bug Bug! If the player has overcharge from The Battery The BatteryThe Battery Icon.pngActivated collectibles can be "overcharged" to allow for an additional use., using absorbed items that the player can "put away" (e.g. Shoop Da Whoop! Shoop Da Whoop!Shoop Da Whoop! Icon.png2 roomsFires a laser from Isaac's mouth., Bob's Rotten Head Bob's Rotten HeadCollectible Bob's Rotten Head icon.png3 roomsUpon use, Isaac holds a poison bomb which can be thrown towards any of the four cardinal points and explodes on impact., and Notched Axe Notched AxeCollectible Notched Axe icon.png3 roomsIsaac holds the axe above his head for as long as the spacebar button is held (or until he leaves the room). While holding the axe, Isaac can break any rock he touches, but cannot attack or pick up other items.) will use all the overcharge, even when the player puts away the items. In the case of Notched Axe on its own, using Void will use all charges at once.
