  • If Collectible Scissors iconScissors are used after picking up Transcendence, Isaac will have no visible body from which to shoot tears. Only a shadow and orbitals will remain.
    • (in Repentance) In Repentance, however, blood gurgles will be spewing constantly from the body, making it much easier to keep track of it.
  • This item is used in Solar System (challenge #6).
  • In the original Binding Of Isaac, Transcendence was unlocked by beating Boss Mom's Heart ingameMom's Heart two times instead of three.
  • The item sprite is a reference to the suicide method of one hanging themselves with a rope connected to an anchor point on top.
