Bishops are stationary enemies that defend other enemies instead of attacking Isaac. If an enemy or boss is within a large distance of one, it will grant them an impenetrable shield.

This shield effect nullifies all damage the player inflicts so usually it's a top priority to defeat all Bishops in the room first; otherwise, the situation may be unwinnable. Fortunately, Bishops can not apply shields to other Bishops.


  • Bishops can provide a shield for more than one enemy at a time.
  • Bishop shields only become visible if the player attempts to attack the enemy under the shield.
  • If all enemies in the room besides the Bishops are slain, the remaining Bishops will not change in behaviour.


  • The Bishop is currently the only enemy in the game to apply buffs to other enemies.
  • Bishops are one of the only enemies to wear clothing.
