Unlock Method
Eve Don't pick up any hearts for 2 floors in a row

Eve is a character unlocked by beating two floors in a row without collecting any heart pickups. Eve starts with two Red Heart containers, 15►Whore of Babylon Whore of Babylon, and the 15►Dead Bird Dead Bird.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Unlike other characters, Eve's 15►Whore of Babylon Whore of Babylon's effect activates with one remaining Red Heart, instead of half a heart, and it will set her damage multiplier to 1.00.
  • When unlocking Eve, gaining Red Heart containers or using Yum Heart does not count as picking up heart pickups.
  • Added in Afterbirth Upon donating 439 coins to the Greed Donation Machine, Eve will start with the 15►Razor Blade Razor Blade. This allows Eve to get to her Whore of Babylon while also granting the damage up of the Razor Blade, and without lowering Devil Deal chance.

Item & Strategy Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Eve works well when she's low on health; using Devil Beggars and Blood Donation Machines are good ways to activate Whore of Babylon.
  • 15►Guppy's Paw Guppy's Paw is also a useful item for building up damage, providing Soul Hearts and free Whore of Babylon during the run.
  • Curse Rooms are usually pleasant to find at the beginning of a run, since without health upgrades, they will lower Eve's health into her Whore of Babylon state, and can potentially hold useful items and/or Soul/Black Hearts to protect Eve after transforming. If not already active, be sure to damage yourself upon the Curse Room door before accepting Soul or Black Hearts to activate the Whore of Babylon state.

Good Items[edit | edit source]

  • Items that take Red Heart containers away typically do so as a cost to counterbalance its potent benefits; for Eve, however, this supposed cost will likely be beneficial due to Whore of Babylon. Such items include 15►Dead Cat Dead Cat, 15►Guppy's Paw Guppy's Paw, and 15►Abaddon Abaddon.
  • Following the same logic, items that make deals with the Devil more likely will allow Eve to trade her Red Heart containers away more reliably, making it safer to gain health for the sole purpose of spending it in a Devil Room.
  • As Eve will prefer having little to no Red Hearts, she will need alternative ways to stay alive. As such, items that are conducive to spawning Soul Hearts or Black Hearts will be instrumental for Eve. Such items include 15►Dark Bum Dark Bum, 15►Book of Revelations Book of Revelations, 15►Satanic Bible Satanic Bible, 15►Mitre Mitre, and many more.
  • Added in Afterbirth 15►The Polaroid The Polaroid works very well with the 15►Razor Blade Razor Blade, when Eve is at half-a-Red-Heart or less. During the period of invincibility after taking damage, the player can spam the Razor Blade quite a few times and vastly increase Eve's damage with no penalty.
  • Items that activate with low health such as Added in Afterbirth †15►Dark Prince's Crown Dark Prince's Crown work well with Eve.

Bad Items[edit | edit source]

  • Any items that give Eve Red Heart containers are potentially bad since it could deactivate the Whore of Babylon effect. However, because Red Heart containers are very useful in deals with the Devil, it could also benefit Eve greatly to hold on to the containers temporarily. Thus, an understanding of Devil Room spawning occurrence and chance is essential in deciding whether or not to take such items.
  • Items that heal Red Heart containers (such as 15►Placenta Placenta, 15►Charm of the Vampire Charm of the Vampire, and the Tick Tick) can, and oftentimes, inevitably will cancel the effect of Whore of Babylon, if Eve has more than one Red Heart container.
  • Items that attract pick-ups (such as Magneto or Broken Magnet) will force Eve into avoiding Red Hearts so she could keep the Whore of Babylon effect, should she have more than one Red Heart container.
  • Child's Heart Child's Heart causes more Red Hearts to appear, something which is generally undesirable in an Eve run without 15►Dark Bum Dark Bum, and can make more useful items such as bombs or keys less likely to appear.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Eve was a playable character in the original The Binding of Isaac. She was added with Halloween Update.
    • In the original, Eve was unlocked by making two or more Devil deals in one run. This unlock method was given to Azazel in Rebirth.
  • According to biblical theology, Eve was the first woman on earth, born of Adam's rib in the book of Genesis.
  • In the original game, Eve had a unique effect in that she would leave a bloodstain when entering a room at half a heart remaining instead of a urine stain. This was thought to be a reference to menstruation, as biblically menstruation was a curse upon Eve given by God. This feature was initially (intentionally or unintentionally) left out in Rebirth, but was later re-added in Booster Pack #5.
  • Eve was confirmed to be Edmund McMillen's favorite character from The Binding of Isaac in a Twitter AMA.
