Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

The Para-Bite is a monster introduced in the vanilla content of The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth. They can be only encountered in Chapter 4.

It will move around the room until Isaac appears in its line of sight, prompting it to charge towards him and can deal a full heart of contact damage. They're also able to move underground and pop up in a different location, although they cannot spawn right under Isaac.

Variations[ | ]

Scarred Para-Bite[ | ]

(except in Rebirth)

Scarred Para-Bites are a variant of Para-Bites added in The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth DLC.

They behave similarly to regular Para-Bites and occasionally fire a short-ranged blood shot towards Isaac.
