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.
    • 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.
  • 15►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.
  • Added in Afterbirth 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]

  • 15►BFFS! BFFS!: The loose head won't become larger, but will deal double damage.
  • Added in Afterbirth15►Car Battery Car Battery: No effect.
