Added in Repentance

Saturnus is a passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • A circle surrounds Isaac. When entering a room, fills the circle up to 7 tears that copy Isaac's tear properties.
    • The tears will deal 1.5x Isaac's damage +5 flat damage.
    • After 13 seconds, the tears will automatically fall to the ground.
    • The room does not have to be a new room to renew the 7 orbiting tears.
  • Any orbiting tear that hits an ennemy will disappear and respawn at the beginning of next room.
    • Orbtiting tears can damage destructible Fire Places and Poops without disappearing, allowing the player to destroy these elements when they are behind obstacles.
  • Enemy tears have a chance to be caught in the orbit, making them able to damage enemies and adding a chance to avoid damage.
    • Enemy tears caught only last for the current room.

Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • 15►Angelic Prism Angelic Prism: Orbiting tears automatically contact the prism and multiply.
  • 15►Eye of Belial Eye of Belial: When an orbiting tear hits an ennemy, it will turn into an 15►Eye of Belial Eye of Belial's tear. From that point, the tear gets out of Saturnus's orbit every time an ennemy is nearby, becomes autonomous and chases ennemies that are close enough to the tear. It won't be destroyed by ennemies anymore. When there's no ennemy close from it, it comes back into the orbit. As all 7 tears can become eye of belial ones, this synergy is significantly powerful.
  • 15►Godhead Godhead: The orbiting tears have Godhead's damaging aura without the homing effect.
  • 15►A Lump of Coal A Lump of Coal: The tears grow in size and damage as they orbit around Isaac.
  • 15►Blood Clot Blood Clot: Orbiting tears will be the same than the last fired tear before leaving the previous room. Hence if you want to guarantee orbiting tears to have the 15►Blood Clot Blood Clot damage bonus, your last fired tear before leaving a room must come from the left eye.
    • If you have an item that makes you have a charge bar or replaces tears such as 15►Mom's Knife Mom's Knife, each orbiting tear will randomly be a regular or buffed one.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

  • 15►Dr. Fetus Dr. Fetus: No effect; tears surrounding Isaac will be regular tears.
  • 15►Explosivo Explosivo: Orbiting tears that stick to an enemy but don't detonate will return to the ring if the enemy cannot be stuck to anymore.
  • 15►Ipecac Ipecac: Tears surrounding Isaac will not cause self damage if at maximum distance until high tear size. If Isaac enters a room and his Saturnus tears have not spread out, they could hit an entity and cause self damage.
  • 15►Mom's Knife Mom's Knife: No effect; tears surrounding Isaac will be regular tears.
  • 15►Proptosis Proptosis: Causes the tears to immediately fall, making Saturnus almost irrelevant.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

Bug Bug! Using 15►Glowing Hour Glass Glowing Hour Glass will the trigger effect of Saturnus again when returning to the room that was teleported out of, doubling the tears in that room.
Bug Bug! In the first room of a floor, orbiting tears may be packed in two groups instead of having an equivalent distance between all of them. They will turn back to normal when going to another room. This bug may be due to some synergies/interactions
