Notes[ | ]

  • The buffs from Sol will be active upon entering all the floors in the Ascent, but it will not activate the effect of XIX - The SunXIX - The Sun.
    • In HomeHome, the buffs from Sol will activate after sleeping in Mom's bed or defeating Boss Dogma ingameDogma's first phase.

    • In The VoidThe Void, only the randomly selected Boss room will grant Sol's effect.
  • Does not activate with bosses killed during Boss RushBoss Rush.
  • Despite being on a different floor, Sol's effect persists for ?????? and thus contributes to the Boss Hush ingameHush fight.
  • Upon defeating a multi-segment boss where all pieces die at the end (Chub, C.H.A.D, Carrion Queen, etc.), the effect activates once per segment, leading to an effective +3 luck and +9 damage until leaving the room, after which, the extra bonuses will be removed. It's probably a bug.
  • Sol will not activate upon clearing the Mirrored World's Boss Room.
  • If Sol is obtained in Greed Mode, through Collectible Spindown Dice iconSpindown Dice or as a starting item for Character Eden iconEden, the effects will activate when entering the main room for the first time. In addition, it will activate each time a boss wave is completed.
    • Sol will not activate during the final stage in the mini-boss fight before Boss Ultra Greed ingameUltra Greed.
  • If Isaac manages to die at the same time he kills a boss, Sol will not save him. Instead, Isaac will die with full health.
