Devil Room.png

Devil Room Devil Rooms primarily allow Isaac to make Deals with the Devil, but they can also contain a variety of enemies, pickups, or even a boss battle against Krampus Krampus. A Devil Room has a chance to appear in a Boss Room Boss Room after the boss occupying it has been defeated. If certain criteria are met, a Devil Room can be replaced by an Angel Room Angel Room.

Added in Afterbirth In Greed Mode, Devil Rooms are guaranteed appear upon completing the optional 11th wave of a floor.

Possible Contents[]

Additionally, 2 Red Fire Place Red Fire Places may spawn, Added in Afterbirth † as well as Urns. Spikes may spawn instead of or in addition to any items/pickups. Some regular enemies can appear as well, including: Added in Afterbirth 1 Mom's Hand Mom's Hand, 2 Nulls Nulls, or 1 Added in Afterbirth Imp Imp.

If a Devil Room appears upon defeating Mom's Heart Mom's Heart Removed in Afterbirth or It Lives It Lives, it will only contain a trapdoor to Sheol Sheol.

Deals with the Devil[]

A Devil Room has a high chance of spawning items that will be put up for sale. Unlike Shop Shops where Isaac pays with money, to make Deals with the Devil Isaac has to trade Red Heart Containers as payment. All items normally cost either 1 or 2 Red Heart Containers, and their prices roughly correspond to their power.

See the following item pool for a comprehensive list of items offered and their health price: Devil Room (Item Pool)


  • If Isaac does not have Red Heart Containers upon entering a Devil Room, all items will cost 3 Soul Heart Soul Hearts.
    • Added in Afterbirth If Isaac is presented with 2+ items to buy, but only have enough Red Hearts to buy one, the price of the other(s) will change to 3 Soul Hearts upon spending your Red Hearts.
    • Added in Repentance Additionally, if Isaac only has one Red Heart, deals that normally cost 2 Hearts will change to one Red Heart and two Soul Hearts.
      • Unlike other Deals, if Isaac does not have enough Soul Hearts for this type, he will not be able to take the Deal.
    • Added in Repentance If Isaac has less than 3 Soul Hearts, but at least one Added in Afterbirth † Bone Heart Bone Heart, he can take a three Soul Heart Deal and stay alive because of the bone hearts.
  • Added in Afterbirth / Removed in Repentance Two-Heart Deals can be taken even if Isaac does not have enough Red Hearts to afford them, as long as he has one Red Heart to spend.
  • Spending all of his Heart Containers will not kill Isaac as long as he has Soul Heart Soul Hearts or Black Heart Black Hearts remaining.
    • If taking a Deal leaves Isaac with no Red Heart Containers, he can still survive if he picks up a Soul Heart or Black Heart while holding the item in the air. Also, if he has an active item that grants Soul/Black Hearts, he can take a Deal and then use the active item, leaving him alive with whatever the item gave him[1].
  • Added in Repentance Some items may cost Soul Hearts even if Isaac still has Red Hearts.
    • An item's price may change from Red Hearts to Soul Hearts if Isaac visited the Devil Room prior to obtaining enough Soul Hearts and returning to the Devil Room

Angel Rooms[]

  • Refusing to make Deals with the Devil will give Isaac the chance of an Angel Room Angel Room replacing the Devil Room Devil Room on subsequent floors. If any Deal with the Devil is taken, Angel Rooms will not spawn for the remainder of the run.
  • Only the act of paying health (Red Hearts or Soul Hearts) for an item in a Devil Room counts as a Deal with the Devil. Taking Black Heart Black Hearts, opening Red Chest Red Chests, and taking items that weren't paid for (such as those obtained from Red Chest Red Chests, Krampus Krampus, Beggars, Pandora's Box Pandora's Box, or made free by using Credit Card Credit Card) do not count as Deals taken, allowing Isaac to still see Angel Rooms.
  • Removed in Repentance Trading Heart Containers for items in a Black Market Black Market counts as taking a Deal with the Devil for Angel Room Angel Room generation purposes.
  • Added in Repentance If the first offered Devil Room is not entered at all, the next offer is guaranteed to be an Angel Room. If the player uses the Joker Joker it will take you to the Angel Room without removing the guarantee. This can be exploited by taking red heart damage to prevent its spawn as the next generation will be an angel room.

  • In the original The Binding of Isaac, the Devil Rooms were somewhat less forgiving; if Isaac has an Eternal Heart Eternal Heart, taking a Devil Deal will remove it.
    • Furthermore, if Isaac has at least one Soul Heart and one Red Heart Container, and he takes a Devil Deal, Isaac would die. Isaac's last will will show a pentagram or a goat head as a result.
