Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

(in Repentance)

Lil Dumpy is a passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance.

Effects[ | ]

  • Gives Isaac a Dumpy familiar, which follows behind him. When Isaac is about to take damage (as with Panic ButtonPanic Button), Lil Dumpy farts, pushing nearby enemies and shots away. Enemies that collide with obstacles or walls take damage. Pushed shots that hit an enemy deal 7 damage.
    • Lil Dumpy has a larger, hidden secondary radius that may randomly trigger its fart effect if an enemy projectile enters it.
  • After farting, Lil Dumpy goes on cooldown and "falls asleep" until Isaac walks up to him to wake him up. Lil Dumpy resets upon entering a new room.

Notes[ | ]

  • Does not prevent damage from environmental hazards, including spiked chests
  • Lil Dumpy's position behind Isaac can overlap with other Familiars or other copies of itself.
  • During the Mega Satan fight, Lil' Dumpy can get stuck at the top of the room and become unreachable for the rest of the fight.

Trivia[ | ]

  • Lil Dumpy is from the Antibirth mod. In Antibirth, Lil Dumpy instead wandered around the room randomly and would fart when blocking a projectile, which could poison or confuse nearby enemies as well as knock them back and send Lil Dumpy flying.
    • The design of this item is also based off of Dumplings, a common enemy present in Antibirth that does not appear in Repentance. Dumplings are a creature featured in multiple of Edmund McMillen's previous Flash games, and even having a game of their own.
  • Prior to V1.7.8, Lil Dumpy would instead behave like its Antibirth version.
