Kamikaze! is an activated item.

Effect[edit | edit source]

  • Upon use, creates an explosion in the same place as Isaac, damaging him for half a heart of health and dealing damage to all enemies caught in the blast.
    • Removed in Repentance The explosion deals 40 damage.
    • Added in Repentance Kamikaze!'s effect is identical to that of Mr. Mega or Mr. Boom, dealing 185 damage in a wide radius.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Unlike 15►IV Bag IV Bag, Isaac will not take damage from using Kamikaze while he has any form of invincibility active, such as after being hit.
    • However, it has a cooldown that lasts as long as the invincibility gained from its own damage, preventing Isaac from using it a second time for the cost of one hit.
  • Benefits from many bomb-enhancing items such as 15►Bob's Curse Bob's Curse, with exceptions listed below.
