Added in Repentance

Uranus is a passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance.


  • Isaac's tears become icicles that freeze enemies upon death, turning them into ice statues.
  • Frozen enemies can be kicked, sliding and leaving damaging creep across the room and shattering when they hit a wall, obstacle or an enemy, releasing 10 icicle tears in a circle.
    • These icicles can either slow enemies for 4 seconds or turn them into ice statues as well if they deal the lethal hit.
  • Killing an enemy by freezing them will prevent any on-death effects to occur, such as split into other enemies, fire any post-death tears, explode, etc., even after shattering.


  • Isaac's own tears cannot apply a slowing effect on enemies. This property is only available for the icicle burst after shattering a frozen enemy.
  • The on-shatter icicles deal damage equal to 8 + (floor - 1) which is not affected by Isaac's stats.
    • These tears do not inherit any of Isaac's tear effects.
  • The blue creep left behind ice statues while they're sliding across the room rapidly deals 2 flat damage for 11 ticks per second, resulting in 22 damage per second.
  • Ice statues have 10 health points and can be shattered if shot by 10 tears or projectiles.
    • Isaac's damage is irrelevant here and each tear shot will deal only 1 point of damage to them.
    • Enemies ignore the ice statues when targeting Isaac and they can also destroy them if shot enough times.
    • Explosions will shatter the statues immediately.
  • Enemies hit by a sliding ice statue receive 35 flat damage which is not affected by Isaac's stats or the current floor.
  • Frozen enemies are considered dead by the game, meaning they don't need to be shattered in order for the room to be cleared. If not shattered, they don't disappear until leaving the room.
  • Since Dark Esau is technically considered a mini-boss by the game, he won't get frozen after death, thus Uranus tears cannot protect you against his on-death explosion.
  • Champion enemies that drop consumables won't drop anything until their ice statue is shattered.



  • 15►Berserk! Berserk!/Tainted Samson Tainted Samson: Kills will freeze the enemies upon their death but they don't count as kills, therefore making it impossible to extend the time by killing enemies with the jawbone.
  • 15►Death's List Death's List: Enemies frozen by Uranus do not count as kills towards Death's List, meaning the room can be cleared in any order and bonus will be granted for every room.
  • 15►Friendly Ball Friendly Ball: Cannot be used to capture frozen enemies.
  • 15►Jar of Flies Jar of Flies / 15►Lusty Blood Lusty Blood: Enemies frozen by Uranus do not grant extra flies or grant the damage bonus, even if shattered.
  • 15►Shoop Da Whoop! Shoop Da Whoop!: The beam is unable to freeze enemies.
  • 15►Trisagion Trisagion: Can help break statues faster due to multiple hits from Trisagion blast.
  • 15►4.5 Volt 4.5 Volt: Damage dealt during the killing blow doesn't provide charge.
