Lemegeton Defeat Delirium as Tainted Bethany
Added in Repentance

Lemegeton is an activated item added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Upon use, Lemegeton will grant a random passive item from the current room's item pool.
    • Multiple of these items may be held at once.
    • A small ghost of the item will orbit Isaac, similar to the wisps from 15►Book of Virtues Book of Virtues.
    • Upon the ghost taking enough damage from either direct enemy contact or projectiles, the flame will dissipate, causing loss of the corresponding item.
    • It is possible to have more than one of the same item.
    • The same passive item can be obtained again after its initial loss.
    • There is a similar upper limit like 15►Book of Virtues Book of Virtues of 26 ghosts: an inner counterclockwise ring of 6, a middle clockwise ring with 8, and an outer counterclockwise ring of 12.
      • Using Lemegeton while holding 26 ghosts causes the first one replaced.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • It is possible to receive the item 15►Missing No. Missing No. as an orbital which will reroll all your passive items but not your orbital passives
  • Tainted Bethany starts with this item. Despite behaving like an active item, Lemegeton is held by her in the card/pill slot, though is not dropped nor prevents picking up of such items, with the ability to swap between Lemegeton and the card/pill, similar to having two cards/pills or two active items from 15►Schoolbag Schoolbag.
    • When playing as Tainted Bethany, picking up 15►4.5 Volt 4.5 Volt will cause Lemegeton to no longer gain charges as long as your normal active item has empty charges like 15►Schoolbag Schoolbag.
  • Upon use 15►Sacrificial Altar Sacrificial Altar, every ghost item will be converted to a Half Soul Heart.
    • But Isaac keeps the passive effects of them until the next use of Lemegeton, which erases all sacrificed passive items.
    • Familiars created by Lemegeton are sacrificable and spawn Soul Heart correctly.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Lemegeton is another name for the Lesser Key of Solomon, an anonymous grimoire focused on demonology that was compiled in the 17th century.
