Disambig.png This article is about the explosion immunity item. For the item that grants bombs, see Pyro.

Pyromaniac is a special passive item.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • +5 bombs.
  • All explosions heal Isaac instead of damaging him. If Isaac has no Red Heart containers or full health, no damage is taken.
    • Removed in Repentance Explosions heal one full Red Heart.
    • Added in Repentance Explosions heal one half Red Heart.
  • Added in Repentance Grants immunity to damage from Fire Places or enemy fires, but does not heal Isaac.
    • It is still possible to acquire Knife Piece 1, as it does not protect the player from taking damage from the White Fireplace in Downpour II

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Removed in Repentance Makes the player immune to Mom's, Satan's, and other enemies' stomp attacks, making those fights substantially less difficult.
    • Removed in Repentance Due to the immunity to Mom's stomping attack, Mom's Toenail Mom's Toenail has improved usefulness.
  • Removed in Repentance Makes the player immune to The Cage's, The Adversary's, Mega Satan's, and Ultra Greedier's rock wave attack.
  • The item is unable to produce Soul Hearts, Black Hearts, or Eternal Hearts, making Pyromaniac a little less effective if used with ??? or The Lost. However, these characters still gain immunity to explosions.
  • Removed in Repentance Makes the player immune to fires left behind by enemies and their hot bombs, as well as projectiles from Red and Purple Fireplaces but not the fireplaces themselves.
  • Added in Afterbirth † / Removed in Repentance Ultra Greed's second form in Greedier mode uses explosive attacks almost exclusively. As a result, Pyromaniac makes characters nearly invulnerable against him.

Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • 15►Dr. Fetus Dr. Fetus / 15►Epic Fetus Epic Fetus / 15►Ipecac Ipecac: Explosions heal Isaac, essentially making him invincible as long as he has more than one red heart container and a decent rate of fire.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
