  • The spawned door will not disappear when leaving and re-entering the boss room.

Notes[ | ]

    • Even if taken after a boss is killed, Goat Head will force a Devil / Angel Room door to spawn on that floor.
  • Accepting a deal with the Devil will prevent any Angel Rooms from appearing, meaning that Isaac needs to acquire the Goat Head in a Curse RoomCurse Room, (except in Repentance) Locked ChestLocked Chest, (in Rebirth) Red ChestRed Chest, from Boss The Fallen ingameThe Fallen or with Credit CardCredit Card, which would allow Angel RoomAngel Rooms to open.
  • (in Afterbirth and Afterbirth †) Goat Head will not force a Devil / Angel Room door to open if the boss fight was in a narrow room.

Trivia[ | ]

  • This item is a reference to how goats and their blood were often used as a common sacrifice proxy. This is even more evident by the pickup quote.
  • This item actually sets devil deal chance to 6660% under the hood, but the value is truncated in the HUD.
