Added in Afterbirth

The dark friendly chargers act like normal chargers and will charge at enemies when they have a chance. They will attack enemies until they run out of hp either from contact with enemies or hazards (e.g. spikes or Fireplace).


  • The allied chargers are affected by mass slowdown effects from items such as the 15►Stop Watch Stop Watch, granting the Shadow Chargers a disadvantage.
  • If Isaac has homing tears, they will home in on allied chargers.
  • The allied chargers will take damage from any sort of explosion, Added in Afterbirth † except from your own general explosions, though certain synergies involving 15►Scatter Bombs Scatter Bombs may kill the Friendly charger.
  • Removed in Afterbirth †With 15►Punching Bag Punching Bag, the allied chargers may attack the Punching Bag instead of enemies. It is recommended you don't take these two items together as they don't synergize well.
