Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Multiple Balls of Bandages can be collected in a single run.
  1. The first ball spawns an orbital familiar that deals 7 damage per tick (105 damage per second) to enemies on contact.
  2. The second ball gives the orbital the ability to shoot charming tears that do 3.5 damage.
  3. The third ball turns the orbital into a Bandage Girl that will chase enemies and fire charm tears.
    • The Bandage Girl deals 3.5 damage twice per second to enemies on contact and its tears deal 3.5 damage.
  4. The fourth ball makes the Bandage Girl larger and increases its contact damage to 5.5 damage twice per second.
    • Enemies killed by a level 4 Bandage Girl's tears have a chance to drop full red heart pickups.
  5. The fifth and subsequent balls will start the cycle again.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Harbingers will always drop Ball of Bandages or Cube of Meat.
  • Outside of not blocking shots in Removed in Afterbirth Rebirth, Ball of Bandages is virtually always preferable to Cube of Meat, having charm tears and retaining the ability to shoot from phase 3 onward.
  • Added in RepentanceIn Repentance the Ball of Bandages orbits the player significantly faster than before, making it more effective at blocking shots but less effective for dealing damage.
  • Ball of Bandages will replace a Pretty Fly when the player has 3 Pretty Flies.
  • If 15►Monster Manual Monster Manual summons a Ball of Bandages while the player has one already, it will raise the level of Ball of Bandages only for the current room.
  • Using Added in Afterbirth15►Box of Friends Box of Friends will raise the level of the Ball of Bandages by one each time it is used, rather than creating another Ball of Bandages.
  • A level 3 or 4 Bandage Girl will deal significantly less damage than the orbital form but is also much easier to use.
  • Level 3 and 4 Bandage Girls' tears inherit Isaac's momentum.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

  • Added in Afterbirth †Duct Tape Duct Tape: Familiar will stay in place relative to Isaac at levels 1 and 2. No effect at levels 3 and 4.
