Effects[ | ]

  • On use, spawns a random friendly monster that mimics Isaac's movements and attacks, similar to Character Jacob and Esau iconJacob and Esau.
  • Friendly monsters can take damage from flames, spikes, and other hazards.

Notes[ | ]

  • Currently, there are 21 monsters that can be spawned in:
  • Certain enemies will have a crosshair to show where they are firing, mainly those with stringed attacks. A Black BonyBlack Bony will only keep the crosshair until it fires all three shots, but a Holy BonyHoly Bony will keep its crosshair for as long as fire keys are held.
  • Bullets fired from friendly mobs will still visibly blink as if they're an enemy bullet, and will be highlighted if Bullet Visibility is set to High, despite not harming Isaac.
