Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

Chargers are a more advanced form of MaggotMaggot.

They possess a smiling face of sorts and look quite harmless as they slowly crawl along without attempting to follow Isaac. If a Charger lines up with Isaac vertically or horizontally, however, they will immediately and quickly charge in a straight line towards him. Because they're usually encountered in groups, avoiding them quickly becomes a problem.

Trivia[ | ]

  • Chargers first appear in the original Flash version of The Binding of Isaac.
  • Chargers are based on Ropes from the Legend of Zelda franchise, since both charge at the player when they are in their sight.
  • (in Afterbirth † and Repentance) Dank Chargers were created by Kilburn for Booster Pack #5.
  • (in Afterbirth † and Repentance) The behavior of the Dank Charger resembles that of the Charger from The End is Nigh, another game made by Edmund McMillen.
  • (in Repentance) Elleeches are the only Ascent enemy without "Tainted" in its name.
    • Their name instead is a portmanteau combining the words "Elite" and "Leech", still carrying its elevated status.
    • They also take the appearance and behavior of a Small Leech, so in a way, they could be called Tainted Small Leeches.
