The Headless Horseman is a Harbinger that can appear in all environments of Chapters 1, 2, 3 and 4; replacing any other Horsemen.
The head has 100 HP. The body's HP scales depending on what Chapter it is encountered- ranging from 60-300 HP.

Behavior[]

The Headless Horseman consists of two entities: The head and the body. Each performs attacks independently of the other.

The head has the following attacks:

  • Shoots 3 projectiles in a spread at Isaac.
  • Charges either left or right off-screen and continuing on from the opposite end of the screen. Continues until it has crossed the screen three times.
    • It performs this attack more often if Isaac is to its left or right.
    • This attack deals a full heart of damage.

The body has the following attack:

  • Periodically shoots red Ipecac Ipecac-like shots at Isaac leaving a large puddle of damaging Red Creep on impact.
    • This behavior is similar to Pestilence's second phase.

Both the head and the body deal a whole heart of contact damage.
