Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

(except in Rebirth)

Multidimensional Baby is a passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth.

Effects[ | ]

  • Spawns a familiar that follows Isaac's path with a 2-second delay.
    • (in Repentance) The delay is 0.66 seconds instead.
  • When a friendly tear passes through Multidimensional Baby, the tear splits into two parallel tears that gain a 1.33x shot speed boost, (except in Repentance) x1.5 range /(in Repentance) x1.5 tear height (which also increases effective range), and also a visual black and white flashing effect.

Notes[ | ]

  • It is possible to crash the game when combining this item with rapid-fire or multi-shot laser tears.
  • Duplicated tears will deal the same damage as Isaac's tears.
  • If other familiars that move with a similar pattern such as (in Afterbirth † and Repentance)Collectible Shade iconShade have been collected before the Baby, it will follow them instead with further delay.
  • Standing perfectly still with the Multidimensional Baby inside of Isaac will activate its effect, as the tears will pass through it as they spawn.
    • This does not work with attacks such as Brimstone.
  • (in Repentance) This item belongs to the ConjoinedConjoined set. Collecting three items from this set will transform Isaac into a three-faced version of himself.

Synergies[ | ]

  • Collectible Brimstone iconBrimstone: If a brimstone laser is shot through the baby, it will double the laser.
    • Character Azazel iconAzazel's short-ranged Brimstone attack will also be "fired again" from the baby, increasing the range.
  • Collectible Cricket's Body iconCricket's Body/Collectible The Parasite iconThe Parasite: Tears that pass through Multidimensional Baby will duplicate and their split tears will duplicate. Half of the tears fired through Multidimensional Baby retain The Parasite's look and the other half have the flashing appearance.
  • (in Afterbirth † and Repentance)Collectible Haemolacria iconHaemolacria: Haemolacria shots will be duplicated and more burst tears will spawn. Burst tears that pass through Multidimensional Baby will also be duplicated.
  • (in Repentance) Collectible Papa Fly iconPapa Fly: Papa Fly will always shoot two shots due to both familiars having the same movement delay.
  • (in Repentance)Collectible Revelation iconRevelation: If a revelation laser is shot through the baby, it will double the laser.

Interactions[ | ]

  • ???'s Soul???'s Soul/Collectible Abel iconAbel/Collectible Cain's Other Eye iconCain's Other Eye: Familiar tears will be duplicated if they pass through the baby. However, due to their independent movement pattern, it can be hard to achieve duplication.
  • Collectible Anti-Gravity iconAnti-Gravity: Multidimensional Baby will travel the same path as the Anti-Gravity tears, easily doubling any stationary shots. Any moving tears that hit it will produce a normal moving copy, however stationary tears will spawn a copy that will eventually fall to the ground even after the direction is released.
    • (in Afterbirth † and Repentance) Stationary duplicated tears will release normally.
  • (in Afterbirth † and Repentance)Baby-BenderBaby-Bender: No effect as Multidimensional Baby only duplicates Isaac's tears.
  • Collectible BFFS! iconBFFS!: The baby is larger, but tears shot through it will not do more damage.
  • Collectible Box of Friends iconBox of Friends: Each copy of Multidimensional Baby follows the previous copy with a 2-second ((in Repentance)0.66-second) delay. Tears shot through multiple babies will only be duplicated once.
  • (in Afterbirth † and Repentance)Collectible Compound Fracture iconCompound Fracture: Tears that pass through Multidimensional Baby will be duplicated and cosmetically look like normal tears. Bone shards will not duplicate unless they pass through Multidimensional Baby separately.
  • Collectible Dr. Fetus iconDr. Fetus: No effect.
  • Collectible Epic Fetus iconEpic Fetus: No effect.
  • (in Repentance)Collectible Eye of the Occult iconEye of the Occult: Makes it more easy to use Multidimensional Baby, as Isaac can simply stand while the familiar stays on top of him.
  • (in Afterbirth † and Repentance)Collectible Lachryphagy iconLachryphagy: Duplicates tears, which tend to merge after traveling a certain distance, making it easier to feed tears. Burst tears can only be duplicated if the tear they come from didn't pass through the baby already.
  • Collectible Lil Brimstone iconLil Brimstone/Collectible Robo-Baby 2.0 iconRobo-Baby 2.0: Familiar lasers that pass through the baby will not be duplicated.
  • Collectible The Ludovico Technique iconThe Ludovico Technique: Spawns another tear that will slowly follow Isaac but cannot be controlled.
    • (in Repentance) Spawns a stationary tear where Multidimensional Baby first appeared in the room. The tear does not follow Isaac.
  • (in Repentance)Collectible Mom's Bracelet iconMom's Bracelet: Throwing any obstacles through Multidimensional Baby will transform it into two 40 damage tears. Throwing obstacles that can drop pickups like mushrooms through Multidimensional Baby will cease the possibility of anything dropping from such tears. Crawl spaces, though, appear right after picking up an obstacle.
  • (except in Repentance)Collectible Mom's Knife iconMom's Knife: No effect.
    • (in Repentance)Fired knife is doubled when passing through Multidimensional Baby. No effect on held knife and returning knife.

In-game Footage[ | ]

Trivia[ | ]

  • The way the tear splits resembles stimulated light emission.
  • In the initial release of The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth, the flashing effect that Multidimensional Baby gave tears was much more intense, and made some players feel nauseous. This was changed in version v1.06.0052.
