Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

Ultra Pride is a mini-boss and one of the Seven Super Deadly Sins. Ultra Pride resembles Edmund McMillen, while the Ultra Pride Baby resembles Florian Himsl.

Behavior[ | ]

Ultra Pride differs from its normal counterparts by having attacks more similar to Super Sloth and a Baby than Pride. They perform attacks independently of each other.

Edmund wanders randomly around the room and performs one of two attacks:

  • Shoots out 3 arcing homing projectiles.
  • Throws out a horizontal line of Green Creep if Isaac is to his left or right.
    • The line is cone-shaped and will always be wider to the right end, no matter which direction it was sent from.

Ultra Pride Edmund deals a whole heart of contact damage.

Florian slowly floats towards Isaac and can randomly teleport around the room.

  • If Isaac is close, he periodically shoots out a homing projectile that deals one full heart of damage.
  • (in Repentance) Florian has slightly more health than other Babies, 30 HP instead of 25.

If Edmund is defeated first, Ultra Pride drops The Left HandThe Left Hand, regardless of whether or not it has already appeared during that run. If this is the first time it is defeated, the Left Hand achievement is also unlocked.
(except in Repentance) If Florian is defeated first, there is a 25% chance of a pedestal item from the treasure room appearing. Otherwise, the player receives a normal room clear drop.
(in Repentance) If Florian is defeated first, Ultra Pride has a 25% chance to drop the (in Repentance)Collectible Eternal D6 iconEternal D6 if it has been unlocked.

Notes[ | ]

  • (except in Repentance) Florian is treated as an ordinary Baby by the game, so it still has a chance to spawn as an Angelic Baby. This will override its unique appearance.
  • (in Afterbirth and Afterbirth †) In one room, two Edmunds can spawn instead of one of each.

Trivia[ | ]

  • They are randomly encountered as an alternate version of Pride.
    • Despite this, Edmund's attacks mirror Super Sloth's more than Pride's.
      • This is supported by both Edmund and Super Sloth having the same entity ID of 46.
  • Ultra Pride may be a reference to the book Frankenstein, in which Victor Frankenstein creates a living being he deems a monster. The creation of life is often considered the ultimate act of pride. In this case, Florian takes the place of Frankenstein and Edmund takes the place of the monster.
    • It might also be a reference to the fact that inserting yourself into your own video-game is often seen as narcissistic.
    • Ultra Pride's first appearance was in the final update to the flash version of The Binding of Isaac and was believed by fans to symbolize Edmund's "Ultimate Pride" at both the success of, and the fact he had finally finished development on The Binding of Isaac.
  • Florian Himsl was the programmer of the first The Binding of Isaac game.
  • Ultra Pride (Edmund) is one of five enemies (four without Repentance, three without Afterbirth+) in the game that uses Creep as projectiles, the others are Conjoined Fatty, Bloaty, Meatball and The Thing.
  • The Seven Deadly Sins that these mini-bosses are based upon are, in Christian teachings, a classification of vices from which all others are derived from.
  • (in Repentance) Florian dropping the Collectible Eternal D6 iconEternal D6 is a reference to the Eternal Edition of the original game, which was a free update developed by Florian.
  • According to Edmund in a twitter AMA, the other deadly sins were supposed to have ultra forms as well, however they were scrapped for unknown reasons.
