Gapers are a category of enemies that usually directly chase after the player. Revelations adds the following variants.

Frosty Gapers are Gaper variants that spawn from Ice Hazards. Frosty Gapers act as regular Gapers, and will attempt to walk towards the player by taking the most direct route possible, dealing contact damage. Upon death they have a chance of leaving behind either a Frosty Pacer or a Frosty Gusher.

Ice Block Gapers act as regular Gapers and directly follow the player, dealing contact damage. When they die, their heads split off and slide away from the player. When the head collides with an object it shatters and releases the head as a Frosty Horf. Meanwhile the body will turn into either a Frosty Pacer or a Frosty Gusher.

There exist two variants of Ice Block Gapers, clumpy and cuboid. The two act the roughly the same but with the main difference being the way their ice heads behave when knocked off. Clumpy Ice Block Gapers, distinguished by the more uneven even ice blocks engulfing their heads, can have their heads knocked off in any direction and when they shatter they release 4 tears in a diagonal x pattern. The heads of Cuboid Ice Block Gapers, based on their squarer shaped ice, will only slide in one of the cardinal directions and release 4 cardinal tears in a + pattern upon breaking.

Yellow Ice Block Gapers originally only appeared in the fight against champion Flurry Jr. but following Sin Update can be found in regular rooms within the Glacier. Yellow Ice Block Gapers are urine themed variants of Ice Block Gapers and behave roughly identical. However when their heads get knocked off, instead of leaving a trail of slippery ice creep they leave damaging yellow creep as they slide.

Yellow Ice Block Gapers are there for usually more dangerous than their non-yellow counterparts.

Snowbobs act as regular Gapers and directly follow the player, dealing contact damage. When they die, their head flies off and lands on the floor, and is able to be killed. If it isn't killed in a short amount of time, the Snowbob head will perform actions depending on what kind of head it is.

Rag Gaper directly follows the player. If the player gets too close, Rag Gaper's head will roll off the body, destroying it, and start rolling on the ground, following the player. The head will continue to decrease in speed, and will die if it stops moving.

When buffed, Rag Gaper will become faster and his rolling head will last longer. When his head falls off while buffed, instead of destroying the body, a Rag Gusher will be left. If the Rag Gusher is not destroyed in a short period of time, another head will regenerate.

Arrowhead

Arrowhead will wander around the room. If Arrowhead is damaged by any means, he will notice the player and directly charge him. After a while of charging the player, Arrowhead will send tears out in a + pattern, an x pattern, and another + pattern, and then return to wandering.

Notes

  • Some Snowbobs have bones in their heads. These bones disconnect from the head when Snowbobs die, and will deal damage to the player if they hit them.

Trivia

  • When an Arrowhead spots the player, he uses the same sound clip that Gemini made in the original Flash game of the Binding of Isaac.
  • In the sin update trailer, an Arrowhead is seen towards the end. He roars as he walks into frame before inspecting Dante and Charon in their high-five pose. The Arrowhead then either feels awkward or gets bored and paces back off screen.
