The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth †
Upon taking damage, Isaac gains a body part as an orbital, which blocks enemy shots and deals 7 damage per tick to enemies it comes in contact with.
A maximum of three body parts can be active at once.
The body parts will be destroyed after dealing 30 ticks of damage and/or blocking 3 shots.
The body parts persist between floors.
Body parts orbit on the same layer as Blue Flies and Locusts do.
The description "You're tearing me appart!" is a refrence to the movie The room (which Edmund has said he is a big fan of), in which Tommy wiseau says the famous line "You're tearing me appart Lisa!".
Leprosy has been added in
Booster Pack #2, after the initial release of the DLC. Leprosy was inspired by
this Steam Workshop item by Bobby Lashley Fangirl #1. The item used to be misspelled "Leprocy" but was corrected in a later patch.
Its appearance is changed slightly for
The Forgotten due to his lack of skin, making him look like Melting from the game Nuclear Throne. The item is a reference to Leprosy, a bacterial disease that damages nerves and can cause extremities to rot in extreme cases.
