Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Upon use, splits enemies in the room into two smaller versions with ~40% health each.
    • If the enemy splits as part of their mechanic, such as Teratoma or The Fallen, they will instead take the damage required to split them.
    • If the enemy has segments, such as Larry Jr., they will have their segments cut down to half, rounding down.
    • If the enemy has a cable between them, much like Mr. Maw, it will immediately be cut. Mr. Maws specifically will be left with just their head.
    • Cannot be used on invincible enemies, such as Hosts.
    • This item does not function on Hush or any final boss except Delirium, instead dealing a small amount of damage to them.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Gemini will immediately separate in two, resulting in Suture being enraged even if no damage has been dealt otherwise.
  • Using it on Loki will turn him into Lokii.
  • Using it on Carion Queen will instantly kill her

Bugs[edit | edit source]

Bug Bug! If used on Reap Creep, during their 3rd Phase, they cannot properly collide with the walls in order to perform their rock attack and will infinitely run against the wall.
Bug Bug! If used against Mom's foot, both will count as their own instance, and the second will only be able to be killed when the first is.
