Not to be confused with The Pinking Shears or Safety Scissors

Scissors is an unlockable activated item.

Effect[edit | edit source]

  • Detaches Isaac's head from his body and turns the head into a stationary familiar that fires tears for the current room.
    • The player still controls Isaac's headless body, which also shoots tears.
      • Added in Repentance The body constantly spews a controllable fountain of blood shots, dealing about 0.66x-1.01x damage.
    • Removed in Repentance The tears fired by the head do not scale with Isaac's damage and always do 3.5 damage.
    • Added in Repentance The head's tears are affected by Isaac's stats and attack modifiers.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Can spawn multiple heads if used in the same room more than once.
    • Added in Repentance Only the most recent head is able to fire.
  • Removed in Repentance15►Brimstone Brimstone and 15►Technology Technology are not fired from the stationary head.
  • If Isaac has an invisible body due to the cosmetic effect of 15►Transcendence Transcendence, only a shadow will be seen after using the Scissors.
  • If Isaac is Blindfolded, the floating head can still fire tears.
    • Removed in RepentanceDoes not work with Tainted Forgotten
  • Added in Afterbirth / Removed in Repentance Each wave of Boss Rush fully recharges the item, allowing many heads to be spawned.
  • Only deaths which end runs (i.e. Isaac is not revived by a revival item such as 15►1up! 1up!) count towards unlocking the Scissors.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This item is very likely a reference to the English idiom "running with scissors", which means to "willfully act in a reckless, foolish, and/or dangerous manner", alluding to the literal act of running with a pair of scissors in one's hand, which can cause severe injury, thus the item's effect and unlock condition.
