Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

Goat Head is a passive item.


  • A Devil Room Devil Room / Angel Room Angel Room Door will always spawn after every boss fight, excluding first floor and floors after Chapter 4.
    • The spawned door will not disappear when leaving and re-entering the boss room.


  • The precise effect involves setting the Devil Room chance to 100%, regardless of other effects.
    • 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 Room Curse Room, Removed in Repentance Locked Chest Locked Chest, Removed in Afterbirth Red Chest Red Chest, from The Fallen The Fallen or with Credit Card Credit Card, which would allow Angel Room Angel Rooms to open.
  • Removed in Afterbirth Goat Head and The Book of Belial The Book of Belial are the only items that will ensure Angel/Devil Rooms on every floor between The Basement Basement I and Utero Utero II.
  • Added in Afterbirth / Removed in Repentance Goat Head will not force a Devil / Angel Room door to open if the boss fight was in a narrow room.
  • Added in Afterbirth Goat Head has no effect in Greed mode and is not normally available.


  • Added in AfterbirthBlack Feather Black Feather: Grants a damage boost
  • Added in Afterbirth †Duality Duality: Both Angel and Devil Room doors spawn after every boss, and the selected door will never disappear.


  • Added in Afterbirth †Eucharist Eucharist: Overrides Goat Head.
  • Added in Repentance Tainted Lazarus Tainted Lazarus: Fighting the boss as the Lazarus with Goat Head will spawn the door immediately. Fighting the boss as the other Lazarus will spawn the door when you leave the room and re-enter.

  • 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.
