Added in Repentance

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

Effects[]

  • Grants one Red Heart Container and fully heals Isaac.
  • Item pedestals cycle between the initial item and one of several food items.
  • Upon picking up an affected food item, in addition to their normal effects, Isaac gains a temporary +3.6 Damage boost (which fades over 30 seconds) and a permanent boost to 2 stats, depending on the food item consumed.
  • Affected food item heal 3 Red Hearts instead of just 1.

Notes[]

  • Food items that Binge Eater affects and can cycle between, and their bonuses, include:
  • The temporary Damage boost cannot be stacked, and picking up additional food items resets it to +3.6.
  • Has no effect on certain items that are required to progress through the game, such as The Polaroid The Polaroid, Knife Piece 1 Knife Piece 1, or Dad's Note Dad's Note.
  • No bonuses are granted from other items alluded to be edible, such as MEAT! MEAT!.
  • Removing collected food items or Binge Eater itself will also remove associated stat bonuses.
  • Because this affects items in Devil Room Devil Rooms and all of them cost 1 Red Heart Container, Devil Deals can be used as free stat upgrades.

Interactions[]

  • Diplopia Diplopia / Crooked Penny Crooked Penny: If an item pedestal is copied while the original item is revealed, it will create an identical cycling pedestal of the same two items. If an item pedestal is copied when the food item is revealed, it will create a non-switching pedestal of the food item only.
  • Jacob and Esau Jacob and Esau: Items will swap between the initial item and food item as normal, but only the brother who picked up Binge Eater gets the additional stat bonuses.
  • Tainted Isaac Tainted Isaac / Isaac Isaac's Birthright Birthright: The food item will cycle alongside the original 2 granted by the character, resulting in a total of 3 items per pedestal.
