Behavior[ | ]

Greed wanders randomly around the room and performs one of two attacks:

  • Fires a spread of 3 projectiles in the cardinal direction closest to Isaac.
  • Spawns 2 HopperHoppers to his either side.

If hit by Greed, Isaac loses 2-4 coins and drops 1-3 Pennies on the floor.

Greed deals a whole heart of contact damage.

Notes[ | ]

  • Shops and Secret Rooms Greed is encountered in count as Mini-Boss Rooms, and cannot be bombed out of. They also prevent any other Mini-Boss Rooms from generating that floor.
  • Once Greed is encountered in a Shop or Secret Room, Super Greed replaces him in subsequent Shops and Secret Rooms. After Super Greed is encountered in the same manner, they cannot spawn in Shops or Secret Rooms for the rest of the run.
  • If Isaac teleports out of the room after defeating Greed but without killing all the Hoppers he spawns, Isaac can re-fight Greed for extra coins or copies of Steam Sale.
  • (except in Rebirth) Greed spawned by blowing up a special shopkeeper can never spawn as Super Greed, even if another Greed was encountered before.
