Notes[ | ]

  • Reap Creep's arena always has a hollow upper layer, preventing Isaac from getting too close with it. This makes the situation tricky if Isaac somehow has to deal damage with melee or grounded attacks.
    • Due to this, as of version 4.0.1, Reap Creep cannot appear in the Scat Man challenge.

Trivia[ | ]

  • Reap Creep originates from a Reddit post by NotYourSaggitarius in 2015, as a boss mockup. The boss was later incorporated into the Antibirth mod.
  • Originally in Antibirth, killing it, Boss Baby Plum ingameBaby Plum and Boss The Pile ingameThe Pile were necessary to unlock Antibirth's alternate chapters.
  • Reap Creep is one of two bosses that can appear in both the main path and the alternate path, the other being The Pile.
    • Because of this, its battle theme will be different, depending on where it's fought. If it's fought in The Depths or the Dank Depths, either Crusade or Cerebrum Dispersio will play, while if it's fought in the Mines, Juggernaut will play.
  • It is the boss version of Wall Creeps, Blind Creeps and Rage Creeps.
