Giant Cell is a passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Whenever Isaac takes damage, he summons a micro-Isaac familiar, known as Minisaac, that chases nearby enemies and attacks on its own.
    • Minisaacs deal 1.35 base damage that scales with +0.15 per floor: damage = 1.35 + 0.15 * (floor - 1)
    • Minisaacs shoot 3 tears per second and their tear delay is not affected by Isaac's stats.
    • Minisaacs persists between rooms and floors.
    • Each Minisaac is spawned with 15 health points that are constantly drained with a rate of 0.4 per second. The draining stops when they reach 0.8 HP.
      • They are healed back to full HP whenever Isaac takes damage, even when the familiars cap is reached.
    • Enemies can damage Minisaacs by shooting projectiles at them or dealing contact damage.
      • Isaac's bomb explosions will also damage the familiars.
      • Minisaacs are immune to spikes and lasers.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The familiar cap for Giant Cell is 16, after which taking damage will not spawn a new Minisaac.
  • Minisaacs will change their skin color based on the character that they were spawned from.
    • Certain items that change skin color can also affect the familiars' appearance.
  • When playing as The Forgotten The Forgotten, the familiars take the style as either The Soul or The Forgotten, depending on who gets hit.
    • If the familiar takes the style of The Forgotten, it will also inherit its bone club attack, dealing 8.1 base damage that scales with +0.9 per floor. It will swing its bone club 1.5 times per second.
  • Minisaacs for Tainted Forgotten Tainted Forgotten will spawn from The Forgotten's body and inherit its skin color but they will shoot regular tears.
  • Familiars spawned for Azazel Azazel or Tainted Azazel Tainted Azazel will not inherit the 15►Brimstone Brimstone laser and will fire regular tears.
  • If Isaac has any form of flight, the Minisaacs will receive wings and will be able to fly as well.
    • Minisaacs spawned before flight was acquired will not get upgraded.
  • There's an unused Shadow-like minisaac that looks like it should be spawned from Dark Judas Dark Judas, but this isn't the case.
