The Wafer is a passive item.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • All damage taken is reduced to half a heart.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The damage reduction includes most sources in the game that would cause more than half a heart of damage:
  • The Wafer does not prevent death (even if the player has more than half a heart) by using the Suicide King card or using the Bible on the Satan boss fight.
    • It also cannot prevent health loss from Devil Room deals or Health Down pills.
  • Despite The Wafer reducing damage to 1/2 a heart, this does not change the amount of invincibility frames the player would normally get from full/two heart damage sources.
  • It will not work with Keeper as he cannot have half of a health coin.
  • Added in Repentance It does not reduce the damage taken while Glass Cannon is held.
  • It does not reduce the damage taken when entering the Mausoleum.

In-game Footage[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In the original Binding of Isaac, "resistance" in the pickup quote was misspelled as "resistence". This was corrected in Rebirth.
  • A wafer is a thin cake made of flour and is used in Christianity for various purposes, including the sacrament of the Eucharist, in which believers consume the body (represented by sacramental bread) and blood (represented by sacramental wine) of Jesus Christ.
  • In the original Binding of Isaac, The Wafer required an unlock, by beating Mom's Heart seven times.
