(in Repentance)

Bumbino is a boss added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance that can appear in all environments of Chapter 2 (CavesCaves, CatacombsCatacombs, Flooded CavesFlooded Caves).

Behavior[ | ]

Bumbino slowly moves towards Isaac and can perform the following attacks:

  • Swipes forward to clear a path to Isaac if Bumbino is obstructed by obstacles while chasing him.
  • Performs two swipes, one in Isaac's direction, followed by another swipe in the opposite direction; these swipes can break obstacles. Then slams the ground, releasing 8 rock projectiles in all directions as well as 4 rock waves diagonally.
    • If Bumbino hits a wall or a pit with a swipe he is momentarily stunned, interrupting this attack and causing rock projectiles to fall from the ceiling.
    • His swipe attack will also deflect incoming projectiles.
  • Charges in Isaac's direction when vertically aligned with him and a wall, breaking all obstacles caught in his path. Bumbino will become stunned upon impacting the wall, launching a cluster of rock projectiles in the opposite direction and causes rock projectiles to fall from the ceiling.
    • If Isaac is close to the impact, he is pushed away.
  • Launches a Collectible Butt Bombs iconButt Bombs Bomb in Isaac's direction.

All of Bumbino's attacks deal 1 Heart of damage.

Additionally, Bumbino attempts to pick up any dropped Coins, similar to Boss Ultra Greed ingameUltra Greed, but without the healing.

  • He prioritizes picking up coins on the ground over attacking.
  • He cannot pick up NickelSticky Nickels, but will try indefinitely if one should spawn in the room, effectively anchoring him to one spot.
  • Getting hit by Bumbino's swipes may sometimes cause Isaac to drop coins.
    • Isaac will drop coins even if he's immune to damage through any means. This includes Character Tainted Forgotten iconTainted Forgotten's skeleton.
  • If Bumbino picks up 12 cents worth of coins, he drops an extra item from the following list and then leaves the room:

  • The name "Bumbino" is a portmanteau of "Bumbo" and "Bambino", the Italian word for child.
  • Bumbino's slam attack may be a reference to the Wario Land games, as he slams with his shoulder forward, mimicking Wario's Shoulder Bash move.
