  • If used a second time while the created TNT is still active, it will explode. This will consume a charge to remotely detonate the TNT instead of creating another TNT.
    • Added in Repentance The remote detonation can be used while the item is uncharged.


  • Added in Repentance The Movable TNT has a unique cubic appearance, but it functionally identical to a regular Movable TNT.


  • Added in RepentanceBook of Virtues Book of Virtues: Spawns one glowing green wisp that cannot take or deal damage in any way, and bounces around the room in a random direction, instead of following Isaac. If the wisp is shot by Isaac or his familiars, it explodes, dealing 100 damage to nearby enemies. The wisp does not persist between rooms. Explosions and enemy shots do not detonate it, and the wisps' explosions are unaffected by BFFS! BFFS! and bomb synergies.


  • Added in Repentance120 Volt 120 Volt: The TNT is spawned and then instantly detonated by 120 Volt's electric shock, inflicting 1 full heart of damage.
  • Added in Repentance Tainted Magdalene Tainted Magdalene: Tainted Magdalene immediately attempts to hug the TNT upon holding it up, instantly detonating it and dealing damage to her.
  • Removed in Afterbirth † Car Battery Car Battery: The TNT will be spawned and then instantly explode, dealing a full heart of damage.
    • Added in Afterbirth † Spawns two TNT barrels.
  • Midas' Touch Midas' Touch: Occasionally spawns a golden TNT barrel which turns into a regular movable TNT after 3 seconds. While in its gold state, Isaac cannot collide with the barrel nor push it, although it can be pushed by enemies. In some cases, the golden barrel will explode immediately after spawning, dealing damage to Isaac. Apart from that, it doesn't give any benefits.

In-game Footage[]



  • This item's name is a reference to the game Minecraft created by Mojang.
    • TNT is a craftable explosive block in Minecraft that is red and cubed. When lit up by the fire, fire setting objects, or certain redstone currents, it would eventually explode, damaging nearby blocks and entities. However, it doesn't share many similarities with the Mine Crafter pickup item or TNT in the Binding of Isaac.
    • Added in Repentance Mine Crafter also physically resembles a TNT block from Minecraft.

Bug Bug! Removed in Afterbirth † Using this item during the Mega Satan Mega Satan fight will cause a soft lock since an exploded barrel counts as an enemy that needs to be defeated before the fight can continue.
Bug Bug! Placing the TNT under the effects of Added in RepentanceVenus Venus or Added in Repentance2Spooky 2Spooky will tint it as if it were applied the corresponding status effect. It is purely visual and will fade after a while.
