Notes[ | ]

Holy Eye[ | ]

(in Repentance)

Holy Eyes are a unique variety of eye added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance. They are only encountered on CathedralCathedral.

The Holy Eye is a stationary enemy, much like other Eyes. Every few seconds, it summons four beams of light (similar to the beams summoned by Collectible Crack the Sky iconCrack the Sky) near Isaac's position, with shadows telegraphing where the beams will strike. The first beam strikes where Isaac is, but the others will attempt to predict his movements, striking where Isaac would be if he kept moving in a straight line. Holy Eyes will always attempt to summon beams of light if they take damage and aren't already firing.

Trivia[ | ]

  • When Eyes spawn, they can be briefly seen opening their eyelids before they start turning towards the player.
  • In the original Binding of Isaac, Bloodshot Eyes, despite using Brimstone as projectiles, had limited range. This does not apply to Rebirth.
  • Eyes may be a reference of Mr. I from Super Mario 64, which is immobile and can rotate, although they shoot pink bubbles from their pupils instead of lasers.
  • Afflicting fear to Eyes will cause them to look away from Isaac.
  • (in Repentance) Holy Eyes, Holy BonyHoly Bonies, and Holy MulliganHoly Mulligans originated as cards from the card game The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls.
    • They originally went by the card name "Holy Mom's Eye" as the card name for regular Eyes was "Mom's Eye".
