Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

(in Repentance)

Twisted Pair is an unlockable passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance.

Effects[ | ]

  • Spawns two demon familiars that float by Isaac's side, and fire tears that use Isaac's tears, range, shot speed, and tear effects, and scale with Isaac's damage.
    • Each familiar deals damage equal to 0.375x Isaac's damage.
  • This item belongs to the ConjoinedConjoined set. Collecting three items from this set will transform Isaac into a three-faced version of himself.

Notes[ | ]

  • Twisted Pair is very similar to the item Collectible Incubus iconIncubus. It provides the same total damage per second increase in the form of a familiar (familiars in this case).
  • When playing as Character Lilith iconLilith or Character Tainted Lilith iconTainted Lilith, the demon familiars will deal 50% of Lilith's damage each.
  • Holding the up/down + left/right attack buttons will make one demon go further behind and the other one in front of Isaac.
  • Because the demons need time to adjust their position while firing, the left\right directional buttons can be tapped to shoot more precise, straight lines of tears.
  • They don't inherit all effects and stats from the player. See item interactions below to see the small oversights.

Interactions[ | ]

  • Collectible Epic Fetus iconEpic Fetus: Each familiar will fire a missile from a two additional crosshairs. Not Recommended, as the twisted pair crosshairs are not synced to Isaac's crosshair and move at a much slower rate, making self damage much more likely as the additional crosshairs will struggle to make distance from Isaac. This is likely an oversight.
  • Collectible Eye Drops iconEye Drops: The familiars do not have the staggered attack, stat bonuses still apply.
  • Collectible Eye of Greed iconEye of Greed The two familiars will also fire coin tears which spend Isaac's coins. Their shot counter is independent from Isaac's.
  • Found SoulFound Soul: While the soul is alive, decreases Twisted Pair's damage by 20%.
  • Collectible Sacrificial Altar iconSacrificial Altar: Only 1 item pedestal is spawned for their sacrifice, unless they were spawned through Collectible Cambion Conception iconCambion Conception, in which case they will count for two.
  • Collectible Terra iconTerra + Collectible Brimstone iconBrimstone/Collectible Technology iconTechnology: While Terra + laser items like Brimstone or Technology don't open doors normally, Twisted Pair's lasers can open doors. This is likely an oversight.
