Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Shade is absorbed by Isaac after dealing 600 damage.
    • The familiar disappears and turns into friendly dark Chargers, similar to those spawned by 15►My Shadow My Shadow.
    • Isaac will now do equal contact damage at the same rate as the Shade used to.
      • 15►BFFS! BFFS! will continue to work on Isaac even after absorption, doubling damage dealt.
      • Isaac's contact damage increases when absorbing multiple Shade familiars.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • If other familiars that move with a similar pattern such as 15►Multidimensional Baby Multidimensional Baby have been collected before the Shade, it will follow them instead with further delay.
  • If Isaac gains a method of flight, Shade will gain wings.
