Missing No. is an unlockable passive item.
Effects[edit | edit source]
- Randomizes passive items and attributes on pickup and at the start of every floor.
- Stats gain a random flat modifier. These modifiers do not stack between levels and are instead rerolled every time.
- Does not affect trinkets, cards, pills, Pretty Flies, The Polaroid / The Negative, Key Piece 1 / Key Piece 2, or active items.
- Can cause but does not remove transformations.
- Missing No. cannot be re-rolled with D4 or D100 after being picked up.
- Can't be removed with Genesis.
- Can't be removed by taking damage with Tainted Eden.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- See D4 for more details of the rerolling process.
- Like other full-reroll effects, Missing No. has a small chance to not reroll every item.
Synergies[edit | edit source]
- Butter!: Provides the only available method for getting rid of Missing No.

Strategy[edit | edit source]
- There is no real strategy to Missing No. as it randomizes all the player's items. The benefit of the randomization can be added by collecting more items to increase the chance of a good item synergy.
- However, this item can be used to gain more health if desperately needed, as the randomization does often include items that grant you various types of hearts.
- If the player has already obtained a large number of items (such as during a run where they have gained infinite money in greed mode), it is highly recommended to avoid this item, as it will almost always end up rerolling all the items the player has thus far collected into Breakfast.
- Due to losing all items every level, it is beneficial to try to gain permanent stat boosts if possible. These include using pills when equipped with PHD or Virgo, sacrificing health with Potato Peeler to gain damage or Brittle Bones to gain tears, or using up Judas' Shadow.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- This item is a reference to the infamous Missing No. glitch occurring in the first Pokémon games. The glitch would often corrupt save files, and therefore randomize various parts of the game as it would use the incomplete index values attributed to entities not included in the final release of the game. Isaac's appearance when affected by Missing No. is based on this glitch which could cause the player's sprite to become scrambled.
- The item also resembles the painting "Composition II with Red, Yellow, and Blue" by Dutch painter Piet Mondrian.
- The background color for the Missing No. achievement has the same color as all the challenge unlocks. This implies that Missing No. was originally intended to be unlocked via a challenge. (Or, perhaps, it was intended to be looked at as an error.)
