Horfs are disembodied human heads with their eyes gouged out. Horfs remain immobile in one spot, firing blood shots at Isaac when he gets in their range. They will fire shots directly at Isaac when they're about 1/2 room width away from them, even though their shots can travel the entire room's length. This makes it possible to outrange the Horfs in almost all encounters with them; even if you're in range, they have a slow rate of fire and their shots are slow-traveling as well, and can be dodged simply by moving slightly to the side.
Variations[edit | edit source]
Psychic Horf[edit | edit source]
Sub Horf[edit | edit source]
Sub Horfs are a variant of Horfs found in Downpour and rarely replace Horfs in other floors. Sub Horfs look like Horfs but tinted blue.
Sub Horfs will only shoot if hit first. If they're shot at, they are turned a different direction but still attempt to shoot back at Isaac. They release 1 water shot upon death.
Level 2 Horf[edit | edit source]
|Base HP||Stage HP|
Spawned after killing a Level 2 Gaper.
Level 2 Horfs are a variant of Horfs found in Corpse. They look like Horfs in a decaying state.
Level 2 Horfs act quite similarly to regular Horfs, however they spit Small Maggots at Isaac instead of blood shots. Although they float, they cannot get past gaps in the floor.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Maws and Psychic Maws appear to be the posthumous versions of Horfs and Psychic Horfs, as their attacks are similar. Plus, Maws appear to be rotting Horfs.
- Even though Horfs look like they are flying, they are considered grounded.
- Sub Horfs appeared in Antibirth.
