Added in Repentance

Binge Eater is a passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Grants one red heart container and fully heals Isaac.
  • Item pedestals periodically switch between any food item and the item they would otherwise contain.
  • Upon picking up a food item, in addition to a heart container, Isaac gains a +3.6 temporary damage boost and a permanent boost to 2 stats, depending on the food item consumed.
    • The temporary boost fades over 30 seconds.
    • The temporary boosts cannot be stacked, and eating more food resets it to +3.6.
    • Every food item while having Binge Eater in the inventory heals 3 heart containers instead of just 1.

Food Effects[edit | edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Has no effect on certain items that are required to progress through the game, such as 15►The Polaroid The Polaroid, 15►Knife Piece 1 Knife Piece 1, or 15►Dad's Note Dad's Note.
  • No bonuses are granted from other items alluded to be edible, such as 15►MEAT! MEAT!.
  • Removing collected food items or Binge Eater itself will also remove associated stat bonuses.
  • Because food items can switch out items in Devil deals and all of them cost 1 red heart, Devil deals can essentially be used as free stat upgrades (on characters that can have red heart containers).
  • When playing as Jacob and Esau Jacob and Esau, items will swap between the normal items and food items as normal, but only the brother that took Binge Eater gets the stat ups other than health.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

  • 15►Diplopia Diplopia / 15►Crooked Penny Crooked Penny: If an item pedestal is copied when switched to the non-food item, it will create an identical switching pedestal of the same two items. If an item pedestal is copied when switched to the food item, it will create a non-switching pedestal of the food item only.
  • Tainted Isaac Tainted Isaac / Isaac Isaac holding 15►Birthright Birthright: The food item will cycle alongside the original 2 granted by the character, resulting in a total of 3 items per pedestal.
