Chaos is a passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth.

Notes[ | ]

  • When playing Greed mode, items that are available only in the normal game will still not appear despite Chaos; the modes' different item pools stay separate.
  • As the item does not mix or combine item pools, it is possible to deplete smaller item pools and end up with Collectible Breakfast iconBreakfast before all items in the game have been taken.
    • Thus, if Chaos tries to pull from an item pool that is already depleted, it will not pull from a different pool and instead give Isaac Breakfast.
      • As many Greed Mode item pools are small, Chaos tends to result in Breakfast more often during Greed mode.
  • (except in Repentance) Chaos will draw items even from item pools that are not used in the game, but defined in the game's files. The unused pools are bossrush containing nearly all bomb related items, challenge with a smaller selection of bomb items and dungeon containing several Mom related items and food items.
  • (except in Repentance) Since all item pools have the same probability of being selected, bomb-related items are much more common due to the Bomb Bum, bossrush and challenge item pools.
  • (in Repentance) Each pool has a weight based on the number of items in the pool. Items from large pools such as Treasure Room, Shop, and Boss are very likely, while items from small pools like Bomb Bum and Planetarium are more rare.
  • If an item outside of the Devil Room pool appears as a Devil Deal, it will always cost 1 Red Heart Container (or 3 Soul Hearts should Isaac have no Red Hearts).
    • (in Repentance) If an item from the Angel Room pool appears as a Devil Deal, it will cost 2 Red Hearts if it would cost 30 cents in the Angel Shop generated by Collectible The Stairway iconThe Stairway, and 1 Red Heart if it would cost 15 cents in the Angel Shop.
  • If an item that grants an Eternal HeartEternal Heart is taken in a devil deal, the eternal heart will not keep Isaac alive if he has no other hearts.
  • (in Afterbirth † and Repentance) Bosses defeated in The VoidThe Void drop items as if Chaos was active. Re-rolling the items uses the Boss Room pool as normal.
