(in Repentance)

Heartbreak is an unlockable passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance.

Effects[ | ]

  • Grants +0.25 damage for every broken heart Isaac has.
  • Immediately grants 3 broken hearts.
    • Every otherwise fatal hit will add 2 more, replacing other types of hearts if necessary, and deal 40 damage to all enemies in the room.
    • Once Isaac has no non-broken hearts left, he dies. Extra lives will apply at this point.
    • The effect does not save Isaac from fatal Devil deals.
      • However, by placing a BombBomb, taking an otherwise lethal Devil deal, then dying from said bomb during the pickup animation, the Devil item can be taken at the cost of some broken hearts.
