Not to be confused with the Keeper enemy.

Keeper sprite

Keeper (キーパー Kīpā) is a secret character added in the Afterbirth DLC for The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth. He is unlocked by donating 1000 coins to the Greed Machine.


Keeper starts with triple shot and 1 bomb. He will also start with the Wooden Nickel after defeating Isaac, a penny after defeating Hush, and Store Key after defeating Satan.

Unlike other characters, Keeper uses coins as health. He starts with two health coins, loses one every time he is damaged, and heals for one coin every time he picks up a coin. All types of hearts are transformed into Blue Flies (half red hearts are one fly, full red hearts are two, soul/spirit hearts are three, black hearts are four, and eternal hearts are five) and Keeper cannot have more than two health coins. If Keeper falls to one health coin (Devil deal, Health Down,..), any HP Up will increase his health back to two health coins.
