(in Repentance)

Revelation is an unlockable passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance.

Effects[ | ]

  • Gives Isaac flight and two Soul HeartSoul Hearts.
  • Continuously firing for 2.35 seconds allows Isaac to fire a powerful holy laser when the fire button is released, similar to the attacks used by the Angel bosses.
    • The laser deals Isaac's damage per tick (up to a maximum of 15 times) and can be aimed diagonally. It lasts for ~1.28 seconds (77 frames).
      • With the EnableMouseControl enabled or an analog controller, the laser can be aimed in any direction, similar to Collectible Analog Stick iconAnalog Stick.
  • This item belongs to the SeraphimSeraphim set. Collecting three items from this set will transform Isaac into an angel.

Notes[ | ]

  • Tear delay has no effect on the charge time of the laser, it is fixed at 2.35 seconds.
  • This item's effects will still work while Blindfolded, which makes it extremely valuable for Character Lilith iconLilith and in challenges such as BRAINS! (challenge #27) or Hot Potato (challenge #42).
  • Many of Revelation's Synergies are similar to Collectible Brimstone iconBrimstone's
  • Having any charged tear effects like Collectible Monstro's Lung iconMonstro's Lung or Brimstone will lower their DPS if their charge time is under 2.35 seconds, in order to use Revelation's laser.

Trivia[ | ]

  • This item makes Isaac resemble UrielUriel and GabrielGabriel, and its ability resembles the two angels' abilities to fire a directed holy blast.
  • This item may be a reference to the Fire Emblem game series, which contains an "Angelic Robe" item that shares a similar sprite to Revelation.
  • Revelation originates from the Antibirth mod. This item is significantly different from its Antibirth counterpart, which gave stats up and a spectral Brain WormBrain Worm effect to Isaac's tears. It also gave Isaac two immortal hearts instead of soul hearts which was a heart pickup that was never transfered to Repentance.

Bugs[ | ]

Bug Bug! When combined with Collectible Chocolate Milk iconChocolate Milk, Collectible Cursed Eye iconCursed Eye, Collectible Monstro's Lung iconMonstro's Lung or Collectible Tech X iconTech X, releasing a Revelation attack may prevent a charged shot from firing at the same time as expected. The charged shot is delayed by about ~0.5 seconds. Holding a full charge for a longer time makes the delay more likely to happen.
