Difficulty[ | ]

With a powerful set of items to start with, this is a rather easy challenge after getting used to Mom's Knife. The most difficult challenge here is defeating Mega Satan.

Strategy[ | ]

  • Because Mom's Knife overrides many other items, finding powerful synergies may prove challenging.
  • As a result of beginning the challenge with both Key Pieces, Angel Rooms are much more likely to appear than normal.
  • (in Rebirth and Afterbirth) It is somewhat easier to beat this challenge with Collectible The Polaroid iconThe Polaroid (which doesn't appear after the Mom fight in Afterbirth †) than it is with Collectible The Negative iconThe Negative, as Boss Isaac ingameIsaac is an easier fight than Boss Satan ingameSatan in this challenge. Furthermore, the ChestChest can provide many chances at useful items that the Dark RoomDark Room does not.
  • (in Repentance) The Red ChestRed Chests in the Dark Room now offer Devil Deals, granting powerful items at the cost of Red Heart Containers.

Notes[ | ]

  • (except in Repentance) Despite being forced to take Collectible The Negative iconThe Negative, the CathedralCathedral can still be accessed; however, once Boss Isaac ingameIsaac is defeated and the chest is entered, the run will simply end and will not count as a completion of the challenge.
  • (in Afterbirth †) If the player starts the challenge before Collectible The Polaroid iconThe Polaroid and Collectible The Negative iconThe Negative have been unlocked (using I AM ERRORI AM ERROR, a Sacrifice RoomSacrifice Room, etc.) then the player will need to repeat said method or use another method to advance to Mega Satan.
  • (in Afterbirth † and Repentance) Killing Boss Delirium ingameDelirium will count as completing the challenge.
