Added in Repentance

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

Effects[]

  • Double tapping a direction makes Isaac quickly dash in that direction.
    • Isaac is immune to damage from all sources during the dash, with the exception of Blood Donation Machine.png Blood Donation Machines, Devil Beggar.png Devil Beggars, and similar self-damage active items.
    • The dash deals damage equal to 4x Isaac's damage + 8.
    • The direction of the dash can be changed by holding another button.
    • The dash has an approximate 3 second cooldown.

Notes[]

  • The dash can be used to enter Curse Room Curse Rooms and open Spiked Chest Spiked Chests/ Mimic Chest Mimic Chests without taking damage.
  • The dash can destroy Shopkeeper Shopkeepers.
  • With a controller, tapping the joystick is rather inconsistent, and the dash can often activate by accident. Using the directional pad instead is recommended.
  • When Mars's dash is charged, Isaac will occasionally flash brightly, and visible steam will emit from his nose.
  • Extra care needs to be taken with this item, as tapping for precise movements too quickly will cause a dash.

Synergies[]

  • Camo Undies Camo Undies: Can be used to deal damage without breaking the confusion effect.
  • Kamikaze! Kamikaze!: Kamikaze can be used without taking damage while dashing.
  • A Pony A Pony / White Pony White Pony: Lowers the dash cooldown to approximately 1.5 second.
  • Tainted Forgotten Tainted Forgotten: Tainted Forgotten will charge on double-tap if Tainted Soul is not holding him. This can be used to let Tainted Forgotten attack enemies from a resting position, or move him away from damaging hazards so Tainted Soul can pick him up.
