Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

Disambig-dark.png This article is about Bloody Lust, not to be confused with Lusty Blood or Bloody Gust.

Bloody Lust is an unlockable passive item.


  • Damage increases as Isaac receives damage. The damage increase stays for the whole floor, but resets upon entering a new floor.
    • Removed in Repentance The first three times Isaac is hit, his damage is increased by 0.5. The next three times Isaac is hit, his damage is increased by 33%.
      • Added in Repentance Damage is increased by flat amounts: +0.5 for the first hit and an additional +0.2 for each hit, until +1.5 at the sixth. The maximum total is +6.0.
    • Any damage taken past the sixth hit does not further increase damage.
  • Isaac becomes redder as his damage increases.


  • Samson Samson starts with this item by default.


  • Added in RepentanceBirthright Birthright + Samson Samson: Birthright allows him to gain 4 more damage boosts at the same +0.2 intervals, for a new maximum total of +14.0.
  • Added in Afterbirth †Dull Razor Dull Razor: Safely provides the damage boost without needing to take damage.


  • Added in AfterbirthDiplopia Diplopia: No effect, damage up still caps at +6 and increases at the same intervals
  • Added in RepentanceBloody Gust Bloody Gust: Bloody Lust's "rage" effect is shared with Bloody Gust, so if Isaac is picks up Bloody Gust after already getting hit with Bloody Lust (or vice versa) the boosts will automatically update to that level.
