Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Upon use, Isaac throws a black hole which sucks in and damages enemies.
    • The black hole deals 0.4 damage per tick very rapidly, for a maximum of 6 dps. This damage doesn't scale with Isaac's damage.
    • The black hole lasts for about 6 seconds.
    • The black hole also slightly sucks in Isaac and pickups.
    • The black hole also destroys nearby obstacles, such as rocks and pots.
    • It can also suck in projectiles shot by enemies.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Black Hole can pull pickups across pits, so be careful as it may pull pickups to areas where they are unobtainable.
  • Black Hole's pull is stronger than the pull of 15►Strange Attractor Strange Attractor.
  • Black Hole can't open Secret and Super Secret rooms regardless of placement, despite crushing obstacles.
  • Black Hole does not suck in stationary or invincible enemies.
  • Black Hole will not suck in the following bosses, although they can still take damage from the black hole and their shots are affected by it:

Interactions[edit | edit source]

  • 15►Car Battery Car Battery: No effect.
  • 15►Gnawed Leaf Gnawed Leaf: The black hole does not pull Isaac in while he is a statue.
  • 15►Schoolbag Schoolbag: The black hole will continue to pull in enemies, pickups, etc while allowing player to use other active items.
