A Stone Grimace is an invincible stationary statue of a head, with a wide open mouth and hollow eyes. Stone Grimaces will sporadically spit a red bullet in Isaac's direction until the room is cleared of regular enemies. When the room is cleared, the Stone Grimace closes its eyes and mouth.

Cross Stone Shooters were added in Booster Pack #4.

The Cross Stone Shooter constantly fires tears in four directions, alternating between cardinal and diagonal directions. If the room has to be cleared (e.g, Buttons, enemies) then Cross Grimaces will deactivate upon the room's completion like a regular Grimace. However, if the room is purely trap based and does not present an objective to complete then Cross Grimaces will continue shooting indefinitely.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Stone Grimaces and their variants play their appear animation for a second before resuming as deactivated in a cleared room if they were deactivated.
    • Added in Afterbirth † They now no longer reuse their appear animation in a cleared room when the player reenters it.
  • If a Constant Stone Shooter is deactivated, it closes its eyes and mouth and stops crying, looking similar to Stone Grimaces upon deactivation. The difference is that deactivated Constant Stone Shooters still have a crack on top of their heads.
  • If a Gaping Maw or Broken Gaping Maw is deactivated, unlike other Grimaces, it doesn’t fully close its eyes. Instead, it closes its eyes only partially and makes a frown.
  • Added in Afterbirth † Previously, Broken Gaping Maws were extremely hard to find. As of Booster Pack #5, they are now more common to find in rooms and have a chance of replacing Gaping Maws.
