Added in Repentance

Tooth and Nail is a passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Every 6 seconds, Isaac turns to stone and sprouts spikes for 1 second. While Isaac is in this state, he is immune to damage and deals 40 contact damage.
    • Isaac flashes white four times before turning to stone on the fourth flash. The first three flashes are accompanied by a "ticking" sound, the final one with the spike extension sound of a mimic chest.
    • Unlike 15►Gnawed Leaf Gnawed Leaf, Isaac can still move and shoot tears.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Blood Donation Machines and Devil Beggars will still deal damage while Tooth and Nail is active.
  • With proper timing, Curse Rooms can be both entered and exited without taking damage.
  • When invincible, Mimic Chests can be opened without taking damage.

Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • 15►Damocles Damocles: As Isaac is invincible 1/6th of the time, with some luck, Tooth and Nail may save him from the falling sword.
  • 15►Kamikaze! Kamikaze!: Allows usage without taking damage during invincibility.
  • The Lost The Lost can use this item to prevent additional damage from occuring after losing the 15►Holy Mantle Holy Mantle (for example, exiting a curse room after being hit), and it does not use up the Holy Mantle's 1-hit protection if it has not been lost.
