    • These spikes can spawn under Isaac but have a small delay before they can deal damage.
  • Spews a volley of large orange projectiles towards the bottom of the room, leaving slowing Orange Creep.
  • Shoots 3, 4, or 7 waves of 5 spread projectiles at Isaac's location.
  • Shoots a burst of disorganized projectiles at Isaac.
  • Occasionally retreats upwards off-screen before executing her spike attack. Performs her orange projectile attack immediately upon re-entering the screen.
