Breath of Life is an activated item.
- Holding the active item button will gradually deplete the charge bar. As the charge gets closer to zero, Isaac turns bluer over time.
- Once the invincibility takes effect, Isaac starts flashing rapidly.
- Gives a brief moment of invincibility when the charge bar hits zero. If the spacebar is held for an additional second after hitting zero, Isaac will take damage.
- The item will recharge on its own but cannot be used again until it is fully charged (even if you didn't fully deplete the charge bar).
- While difficult to use in combat, it is very helpful for using Blood Donation Machines, Confessional and Devil Beggars without losing any life. In order to do this, you have to activate it slightly longer when you're invincible, lest you take damage.
- Can not be used to prevent damage from the door to the Mausoleum.
- Similarly, it can be used to cross over spikes and enter Curse Rooms without taking damage.
- Book of Virtues: Creates a wisp after it's been held long enough for Isaac to take damage.
- Isaac's Heart: When held down too long, Breath of Life no longer damages Isaac, resulting in infinite invincibility.
- Void: Using Void with Breath of Life will immediately grant invincibility frames.
- The Breath of Life refers to God breathing life into the soil to create the first human.
- Breath of Life initially had a different animation, almost exactly alike to Chocolate Milk's effect. However, this animation has one frame of Isaac holding his breath that isn't found in Chocolate Milk's sprites. It even has its own .anim2 file, paralleling Chocolate Milk's. The finished effect for Breath of Life is a gradual change of Isaac's skin tone, from perky pink to hold-my-breath blue.
- Depleting the skill's charge turns Isaac a similar color to ???/Blue Baby, who is implied to be Isaac after suffocating in his toy chest.
|Bug!||This item does not work with Broken Remote.|
|Bug!||Replacing this item with another active item, switching into another active item with Schoolbag, or directly remove it via debug console while holding active item key cause Isaac to take damage (even if the charge bar isn't depleted at all).|
