Added in Afterbirth †

Wait What? is an activated item added in The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth †.

Effects[]

  • Upon use, Isaac farts, knocking back enemies and their shots. It also sends out rock waves that deal 10 damage per tick to nearby enemies and break obstacles.

Notes[]

  • This item is identical to 15►Butter Bean Butter Bean in appearance.
  • 15►Butter Bean Butter Bean has a small chance to turn into this item upon pickup.
    • Added in Repentance Swapping Butter Bean with other active items no longer has a chance of turning it into Wait What?.
  • This item is useful for opening Secret Rooms, Super Secret Rooms, and Bedrooms. In Bedrooms, it can also open up the passage under the carpet.
    • To break open a secret room, the wall must be hit with one of the rock waves, not the gas cloud, so Isaac needs to stand a few steps away from the wall.
  • The earthquake can open Bomb Chests.
  • The earthquake can be used to blow up the Donation Machine or activate/blow up a Restock Box.
    • Added in Repentance Wait What? can no longer withdraw coins from the Donation Machine.

Synergies[]

  • 15►Ghost Pepper Ghost Pepper: Shoots a flame behind Isaac upon each use of Wait What. While 15►Car Battery Car Battery does not duplicate Wait What's shockwave, the flame shot is duplicated regardless.

Interactions[]

Trivia[]

  • The item description is a reference to a brand of margarine named "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!".
  • Unlike Butter Bean, this item has no unlock condition, meaning it's possible for the player to find it right away, making the joke and reference slightly confusing.
