Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

Envy is a mini-boss and one of the Seven Deadly Sins.

Behavior[ | ]

  • Envy floats around the room diagonally, bouncing off the walls.
  • He splits into 2 medium heads upon death which split into 2 small heads each when destroyed. These small heads split one last time into 2 even smaller heads when destroyed.
  • The heads increase in speed as they split into smaller versions.

Notes[ | ]

  • (in Afterbirth and Afterbirth †) Occasionally, 2 regular Envies appear in a Mini-Boss Room and the boss message will display "Isaac vs. Super Envy".
  • (in Afterbirth † and Repentance) Both Envy and Super Envy are extremely vulnerable to Collectible Contagion iconContagion as their relatively low health generally ensures that the poison effect will persist all the way down to the smallest heads.
