Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

Added in Afterbirth

Incubus is an unlockable passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth.


  • Spawns a demonic familiar that copies Isaac's tears.
    • Removed in Repentance Incubus' tears ignores Isaac's range and shot speed.
    • Added in Repentance Incubus' damage is reduced by 25% when playing as characters other than Lilith Lilith.


  • Lilith's starting Incubus is technically not a collected item but an intrinsic part of the character, and is removed if an item such as Ankh Ankh or Added in Afterbirth †Clicker Clicker are used to become a different character. As such, playing as Lilith will not add Incubus to the collection page, nor does her personal Incubus count towards the Conjoined transformation.
  • Incubus is one of the familiars that can be spawned by Cambion Conception Cambion Conception.
  • Added in Repentance Incubus has the second highest priority of following familiars, below King Baby King Baby.
  • Added in Repentance This item belongs to the Conjoined set. Collecting three items from this set will transform Isaac into a three-faced version of himself. Lilith's Incubus, however, does not count towards the transformation.


  • Removed in Repentance Azazel Azazel / Brimstone Brimstone: Fires a full length Brimstone laser that can be charged while still firing the previous laser, allowing it to fire more rapidly than normal.
    • The laser fired by Incubus has the same width as Lil Brimstone Lil Brimstone's.
    • Added in Repentance When playing as Azazel Azazel, Incubus' Brimstone laser has the same range as him.
  • Added in Repentance Berserk! Berserk! / The Forgotten The Forgotten / Spirit Sword Spirit Sword: Incubus will carry the respective melee weapon, using it exactly like Isaac.
