Daddy Long Legs is a boss that can appear:

Behavior[ | ]

Daddy Long Legs' head hangs down stationary and can perform the following attacks:

  • Raises his head, making it invulnerable, and stomps the ground in random locations around the room 4 times in quick succession. (in Repentance) One of these legs will always stomp on top of Isaac's position.
    • The appendages that he stomps with can be attacked to damage him.
  • Lifts his head off-screen and stomps the ground 4 times at regular intervals on top of Isaac's position. At the end of the 4 stomps, he slams his head down quickly, shooting out 8 projectiles in all directions. He can only slam his head down along a horizontal plane across the center of the room and slams it down close to Isaac's position.
    • Occasionally performs a fifth stomp before slamming his head down.
    • The appendages that he stomps with can be attacked to damage him.
  • Spits out 2-3 SpiderSpiders.
    • These spiders can be killed by Daddy Long Legs' stomps and head slam.

Daddy Long Legs' foot stomp and head slam deal a whole heart of contact damage.

Notes[ | ]

  • The passive item Collectible Daddy Longlegs iconDaddy Longlegs is a familiar form of this boss, stomping enemies to assist Isaac. The familiar will even attack the Daddy Long Legs.
  • Like Boss Mom ingameMom's stomp, his stomp deals explosive damage. On rooms where Daddy Long Legs is treated as a degraded Boss, they can be used to blow open doors.

  • Daddy Long Legs is a colloquialism for various types of arachnids including Opiliones and Pholcidae.

Bugs[ | ]

Bug Bug! During the mass-stomp attack, the player will take damage before the animation even begins, making it impossible to dodge.
Bug Bug! During the mass-stomp attack, if the player deals damage to one of the legs that would normally kill a full health Daddy Long Legs, it will cause the leg to die as a separate Daddy Long Legs. This will not damage the boss at all.
Bug Bug! If you freeze one of Daddy Long Legs's legs, then kill Daddy Long Legs while a Spider is still alive, then kill the Spider, the boss fight music won't stop. This is fixed if Isaac leaves the room and then re-enters again.
