Added in Afterbirth

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


  • Spawns a familiar that follows Isaac around and collects Key Keys, dropping random Chest Chests in return. (He does not fill up a familiar "slot".)
  • This item belongs to the Super Bum set. Collecting three items from this set will transform Isaac's bums into Super Bum.


  • Key Bum will not pick up Golden Key Golden Keys.
  • Added in Afterbirth † / Removed in Repentance Key Bum will pick up Charged Key Charged Key without additional benefit.
    • Added in Repentance Key Bum will leave a Lil' Battery Lil' Battery behind when picking up Charged Key Charged Key.
    • From a scoring perspective, Keys that Key Bum picks up count towards your Schwag bonus on daily runs. (only applies to Afterbirth and Afterbirth ✞ dailies)


  • BFFS! BFFS!: Familiar is bigger and drops chests more often.
  • Flat Penny Flat Penny: Chests frequently contain pennies, which have a chance of spawning more keys for Key Bum to pick up, possibly lead to a loop.
  • Added in RepentanceGilded Key Gilded Key / The Left Hand The Left Hand: Works as expected.
  • Added in RepentanceGuppy's Eye Guppy's Eye: Allows Isaac to choose which Locked Chests are worth opening and which to pass, thus saving keys. Great for min-maxing.
