Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

Doctor's Remote is an activated item.

Effect[ | ]

  • Upon activation, a large red crosshair will appear on the ground. The crosshair can be moved using tear controls.
  • After approximately 2 seconds, a large missile will land on the red marker. The missile acts like a large bomb explosion, dealing 20 times Isaac's damage (the same as Collectible Epic Fetus iconEpic Fetus).

Notes[ | ]

  • This item shares many of the synergies and interactions with Epic Fetus.
  • The red marker works different from Epic Fetus' marker when controlled with the mouse: While pressing mouse left button, it keeps going away from Isaac, not following the mouse.
  • Activating the item again while the crosshair is on the ground will cancel the animation of Isaac holding up the remote and allow him to shoot tears sooner.
    • Activating the item again while having full charge (e.g. with Collectible The Battery iconThe Battery) will also deplete the charge, wasting it.
    • (except in Repentance) Taking damage also cancels the animation.
    • (except in Repentance) The missile will still drop on the crosshair, which can no longer be controlled.
    • (in Repentance) This will cancel the missile drop and remove the crosshair.

Synergies[ | ]

  • (in Repentance)Collectible Book of Virtues iconBook of Virtues: Spawns grey bomb-like wisps in the middle ring. When Doctor's Remote is used, the wisps fire two inaccurate, explosive tears at the crosshair in an arc that deal 14 damage (28 with Collectible BFFS! iconBFFS!).

Trivia[ | ]

  • This is a reference to an item used by the antagonist in Super Meat Boy, "Dr. Fetus".
  • Epic Fetus is the endless version of this Item and, as such, uses the same attack animation.
  • The sprite of this item is identical to Collectible Teleport! iconTeleport! and (except in Rebirth)Collectible Teleport 2.0 iconTeleport 2.0, but with a different color.
  • In the original The Binding of Isaac, this item was used in the challenge "The Doctor's Revenge".
