Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

Added in Repentance

Candy Heart is an unlockable passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance.



  • Items/effects that directly heal Isaac (such as Yum Heart Yum Heart, XIX - The Sun XIX - The Sun, Charm of the Vampire Charm of the Vampire, etc.) do not trigger stat boosts from Candy Heart.
  • Healing using Rotten Heart Rotten Hearts triggers the stat boosts for Candy Heart.
  • This item does not give stats when adding to Tainted Bethany Tainted Bethany's blood charges.
  • This item is useless for characters that can't have red hearts (e.g. The Lost The Lost, Keeper Keeper, ??? ???, etc.).
  • Any healing prior to picking up Candy Heart will not provide stat boosts.
  • The stat bonuses are "stored" on the Candy Heart. Dropping or losing it in any way won't immediately revert the bonuses gained, only when Isaac's stats are updated again. The respective stat changed is the one that loses the Candy Heart bonuses.
    • The bonus stats will be lost if Isaac's stats are updated by dropping out of the game or if the game crashes.
  • The stat bonuses are seeded, meaning the same stat ups will apply in the same order in the same seed.



  • Apple of Sodom Apple of Sodom: This doesn't give the stat increases when picking up hearts to make spiders.
  • Diplopia Diplopia: This item isn't affected by stacking.
