Added in Repentance

Vade Retro is an activated item added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • While held, non-ghost enemies leave behind small, red ghosts on death; using the item causes the ghosts to explode, dealing damage to nearby enemies.
    • The damage exploding ghosts deal is equal to 3 + 0.04x the health of the enemy the ghost spawned from, and each explosion can hit the same enemy up to 3 times. Explosion range increases the more powerful the explosion is.
    • Enemies with high health, such as champion enemies, minibosses and bosses will leave behind a larger ghost that creates three explosions, instead of just one.
    • Explosions from this item do not damage the player or terrain, but can destroy enemy projectiles.
    • Can be used as long there are ghosts in the room.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The item's name refers to the Latin phrase "Vade retro satana", a phrase commonly uttered during exorcisms which roughly translates to "Stay back, Satan."
  • This item's ability could be a reference to Nuclear Throne where the character Melting has a similar ability.
