Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

The D6 is an unlockable activated item.

Effect[ | ]

  • Upon use, replaces every item in the current room (not pickups or trinkets) with other random items corresponding to the current room's item pool.

Notes[ | ]

  • (except in Repentance) The D6 is a special item.
  • Character Isaac iconIsaac starts with this item once it is unlocked.
  • Since it re-rolls every item in the room, it can be more efficient to use it in rooms where multiple items are in the same room. For instance:
  • Items from ChestChests can be rerolled.
  • When an item pool is exhausted, the pool will start to use the Treasure Room Pool.
  • (in Rebirth) If Isaac runs out of red hearts in the Devil RoomDevil Room, then rerolls, the prices of the items switch over to soul hearts.
  • (except in Repentance) Using the D6 on an active item yields different rerolls depending on whether you picked up the active item first.
  • Using the D6 to reroll items duplicated with (except in Rebirth)Collectible Diplopia iconDiplopia will reroll all the items into different items. The copied item will not be rerolled into the same one as the original item.
  • Be careful when rerolling, as it will replace the item with another item from the current room's item pool, even if the item came from a different pool, or is a set drop. This can be used as an advantage in various ways; for example, after defeating Boss The Fallen ingameThe Fallen, the item will be drawn from the Devil Room item pool, so Isaac can safely roll the item into another from that pool. This behavior can also be an advantage in Angel RoomAngel Rooms since Collectible Key Piece 1 iconKey Piece 1 and Collectible Key Piece 2 iconKey Piece 2 can be rerolled to get a free Angel Room item.

Synergies[ | ]

  • (in Repentance)Collectible Book of Virtues iconBook of Virtues: Spawns a D6 wisp in the middle ring. An extra wisp is spawned per item rerolled.

Interactions[ | ]

  • (except in Rebirth)Collectible Car Battery iconCar Battery: Re-rolls twice instantly without any benefits besides doubling the speed of depleting item pools.
  • (in Repentance)Collectible Glitched Crown iconGlitched Crown: When the D6 is used, all 5 items will be re-rolled.
  • (in Repentance)Soul of IsaacSoul of Isaac: Using the D6 re-rolls the current item and cancels alternation.

Trivia[ | ]

  • (except in Repentance) Although the D6 is considered a Special Item, it will only count as a special item if found naturally during gameplay. Starting with the D6 as Character Isaac iconIsaac will not cause fewer special items to appear later on. This fact also extends to Character Eden iconEden's starting items: if Eden starts with a special item, that item will not count toward the special item total.
  • In the original Binding of Isaac, the D6 had a recharge time of 3 instead of 6.
  • In the Eternal Edition of the original Binding of Isaac, The D6 has a chance to delete the item instead of rerolling it when playing in hard mode.
    • (in Repentance) The Collectible Eternal D6 iconEternal D6 has the same effect but with a 2 room charge.
  • In the original Binding of Isaac, this item was called "The Dice".
    • Like the other dice items, the D6 uses the naming scheme of dice for tabletop RPGs like Dungeons & Dragons, which were associated with devil worship during the Satanic Panic.
  • The (except in Rebirth)Collectible D7 iconD7, (except in Rebirth)Collectible D8 iconD8, (except in Rebirth)Collectible D12 iconD12, Collectible D20 iconD20, Collectible D100 iconD100, (in Repentance)Collectible Spindown Dice iconSpindown Dice, and (in Afterbirth † and Repentance)Collectible D infinity iconD infinity has the sides displayed with numbers, while (in Afterbirth † and Repentance)Collectible D1 iconD1, Collectible D4 iconD4, Collectible The D6 iconThe D6, and the (in Repentance)Collectible Eternal D6 iconEternal D6 has sides displayed with pips.
  • The D6 is the only dice item that includes ‘The’ in its name.
    • This may be because it is ‘The’ quintessential dice item; being the first added to the game, arguably the most iconic, and the only one featured as a starting item - for Isaac himself, no less.
