Gnawed Leaf is a passive item.
Effects[edit | edit source]
- Upon pickup, Isaac gets a small brown ringtail.
- After standing still and not pressing the move or attack buttons for one second, Isaac will turn into an invincible statue.
- Using bombs and active items will remove the invincibility state.
- Bombs can be placed while stationary and safely be stood on until they blow up if no other inputs are done after placing the bomb.
Synergies[edit | edit source]
- E Coli/ Midas' Touch/ The Virus: Monsters touching the statue will be affected without Isaac taking collision damage.
- Kamikaze!: Statue form will break, but the initial explosion will not damage Isaac, therefore granting Isaac quasi-unlimited bombs.
- The Ludovico Technique: The hovering tear will still deal damage and the statue form won't break as long as the attack buttons aren't being pressed.
- The Ludovico Technique + Strange Attractor: Can pull enemies in while remaining a statue, clearing out rooms easily.
- Mom's Knife: The knife can damage enemies while Isaac is a statue.
- The Pinking Shears: Isaac's body will attack enemies while his head is invincible.
- Placenta: Isaac can safely regenerate Red Hearts in any room, making it easy to have enough health from any mistake at the cost of time.
- Sprinkler: Can be placed upon entering a room, and will continue to fire when Isaac is invincible, meaning any room can be cleared without the risk of Isaac taking damage. This theoretically allows end-game bosses to be beaten without having to move.
- Super Magnet: Pulls enemies into Isaac, can be extremely powerful if combined with orbitals that allow contact damage.
- Dark Arts: While Isaac surrounded by enemies Isaac will not take damage and will safely go into the shadow state. (Even if enemies are in pointblank range.)
Interactions[edit | edit source]
- Blood Rights / IV Bag / Razor Blade: Statue invulnerability will not prevent damage from these items when activated.
- My Little Unicorn / The Gamekid / Unicorn Stump: Statue form can activate while invulnerable.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- While invulnerable, Little Horn’s pitfall still affects the player and will teleport them throughout the room; however, the damage is not dealt.
- With items like Cube of Meat, you can easily but slowly kill most of the enemies and bosses without taking any damage.
- The recipe to craft the item with alternate Cain is 1 key, 3 bombs and 4 pennies.
In-game Footage[edit | edit source]
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- This item is a reference to the Super Leaf from Super Mario Bros. 3, which grants the player the Tanooki suit. The Tanooki Suit also has a tanooki tail and the ability to turn into a statue.

Bugs[edit | edit source]
|Bug!||Leaving and re-entering a run while in statue form makes Isaac continue to appear in statue form, though he is vulnerable.|
|Bug!||Moving as tainted forgotten doesn't disable gnawed leaf. (Attacking does disable it)|
