Added in Repentance

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


  • Gives Isaac flight and two soul hearts.
  • Continuously firing for 2.35 seconds allows Isaac to fire a powerful holy laser when the fire buttons are 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 15►Analog Stick Analog Stick.
    • Tear delay has no effect on the charge time of the laser — it is fixed at 2.35 seconds.
  • This item belongs to the Seraphim set. Collecting three items from this set will transform Isaac into an angel.


  • This item's effects will still work while Blindfolded, which makes it extremely valuable for Lilith Lilith and in challenges such as BRAINS!.
  • Having any charged tear effects like 15►Monstro's Lung Monstro's Lung or 15►Brimstone Brimstone will lower their DPS if their charge time is under 2.35 seconds, in order to use Revelation's laser.


  • 15►Angelic Prism Angelic Prism: When the laser hits the prism, it will split in four.
  • 15►Anti-Gravity Anti-Gravity: The laser fires in place, not following Isaac.
  • Brain Worm Brain Worm: The laser will bend completely to hit an enemy, effectively acting as a better form of homing on single enemies and bosses.
  • 15►Continuum Continuum The laser loops around, potentially hitting enemies twice.
  • 15►Eve's Mascara Eve's Mascara/15►Polyphemus Polyphemus: As the laser deals Isaac’s damage, but is not affected by tear delay, the DPS of the laser is greatly increased.
  • 15►Lachryphagy Lachryphagy: The laser will have reduced range, but will spawn a stream of red Lachryphagy tears.
  • 15►Multidimensional Baby Multidimensional Baby: If a Revelation laser is shot through the baby, it will double the laser.
  • 15►The Parasite The Parasite: The laser will split both ways at 90 degree angles on contact with an enemy.
  • 15►Pop! Pop!: The laser will have reduced range, but will shoot out eyeballs rapidly at its end.
    • 15►Pop! Pop! + 15►Multidimensional Baby Multidimensional Baby: Lasers modified by Multidimensional Baby are no longer affected by Pop!, being normal length and not firing additional eyes out the end.
  • 15►Rubber Cement Rubber Cement: The laser will bounce off the walls for a short distance.
  • 15►Spoon Bender Spoon Bender: The laser will home in on enemies in a very effective way.


  • 15►Almond Milk Almond Milk/15►Soy Milk Soy Milk: As the laser deals Isaac’s damage, but is not affected by tear delay, the DPS of the laser is greatly decreased.
  • 15►Diplopia Diplopia: Multiple copies of Revelation have no extra effect.
  • 15►Ipecac Ipecac: The laser will poison enemies and repeatedly explode on contact with an enemy or obstacle. Despite its high damage increase, Ipecac only adds +2 damage to the beam, similarly to 15►Brimstone Brimstone.
  • 15►Jacob's Ladder Jacob's Ladder: At any point the laser makes contact with an enemy or obstacle, lightning will jump from it.
  • 15►My Reflection My Reflection: The laser makes a thin loop in front of Isaac, and fires the normal laser backwards.
  • 15►Mysterious Liquid Mysterious Liquid: The laser creates a pool of creep on contact with an enemy or obstacle.
  • 15►Playdough Cookie Playdough Cookie: The laser rapidly flashes between different colors while firing, with a chance to inflict status effects.
  • 15►Sulfuric Acid Sulfuric Acid/15►Terra Terra: The laser will occasionally break obstacles.
  • 15►Tech X Tech X: If the Revelation beam and the Tech X are both charged, it will sometimes fire the Revelation beam first and the Tech X ring at the end of it.

In-game footage[]


  • This item makes Isaac resemble Uriel and Gabriel, and its ability resembles the two angels' abilities to fire a directed holy blast.


Bug Bug! When combined with 15►Chocolate Milk Chocolate Milk, 15►Cursed Eye Cursed Eye, 15►Monstro's Lung Monstro's Lung or 15►Tech X Tech 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.
