Void Defeat Delirium as Apollyon
Added in Afterbirth †
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:
    • Void does not work on devil deal, black market, or shop items unless they have been bought first.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • It is unproductive to use Void in devil deals, black markets, or shops unless you want the active item effects, as passive items will be picked up upon buying them.
  • 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.
  • Using an item before absorbing it with Void will effectively allow you to use the item twice. This does not apply to one use items such as Diplopia Diplopia
    Diplopia Icon.pngOne time useDuplicates all pickups and item pedestals in the room.
    , Pandora's Box Pandora's Box
    Pandora's Box Icon.pngOne time useUpon use, spawns certain pickups or items depending on the floor it is used on. Single-use.
    , Plan C Plan C
    Plan C Icon.pngOne time useKills all enemies in the room, then kills Isaac three seconds later.
    , etc.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    : 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 Jump

    : Be wary with this combination; without an infinite recharge, it is possible to jump to a spot you have no way of returning from. (This can be fixed by going to the main menu and then resuming the game, however.)

  • Moving Box Moving Box

In-game Footage[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • When this item was originally teased, it had a recharge counter of four and converted pickups into Blue Flies; in the 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 5th January 2017, Void synergized with single-use items and constantly trigger them upon each use of Void; this has since been removed.
