The Visage is one of the bosses that can appear in Mausoleum. It is a more difficult version of the Mask of Infamy.

Behavior

Phase One

Much like the Mask of Infamy, during the first stage of the battle the Mask and the Heart will act largely independently of each other, with the Mask attempting to chase Isaac and deal contact damage while the Heart tends to move away. However, the two are connected by a chain, and neither can be harmed directly. The chain must be damaged to progress the fight.

Phase Two

Once the chain has been destroyed, the second stage of the battle begins. Now the Mask has a visible hole in its back through which a purple flame can be seen, and both the Mask and the Heart can be damaged directly. The Mask can only be harmed by attacking its back side, but the Heart is vulnerable regardless of where it is hit. In Phase Two, the behavior and kinds of attacks used by the duo also change:

  • The Mask seems to charge at Isaac faster than before.
  • The Heart will flee from Isaac at a higher speed.
  • On occasion, the Heart will fire a chain towards the Mask and pull it over so that the Mask is directly adjacent to the Heart and facing Isaac. Then, the Mask will fire a pair of purple (but not homing) Brimstone lasers in a double-helix pattern in the direction it is facing. When the Mask finishes firing this beam, the pair disconnect and each resumes its normal behavior.
  • Sometimes, the Heart will fire a big purple ball of energy that moves slowly towards Isaac.
    • If the ball of energy doesn't hit Isaac for long enough, it'll hit the mask in the back, stopping anything it was doing and propelling it forwards very fast towards the direction it was looking at (only cardinal directions) while firing brimstone lasers in a double-helix. The mask takes a bit of time to start attacking again after hitting the wall.
    • The energy ball will have the same effect if it hits the back of the mask while chasing Isaac.
  • You there! Yes, you! We know that this boss has more attacks, but we aren't sure just how those attacks work. If you find out any moves we missed, please don't hesitate to update this list.

Trivia

  • Judging by the general theme of the Mausoleum where it appears, it's possible that The Visage is actually a posthumous version of the Mask of Infamy which was revived with necromancy.
  • When the boss is defeated, the Heart is destroyed like most bosses (leaving nothing but a pool of purple blood), but the Mask leaves behind a metal husk which can be nudged around like a |stone chest. This object maintains the general appearance of the Mask and faces the same direction which the Mask faced when the boss was killed, but the purple fires which could be seen in its eyes and the hole in its back side have gone out and it no longer deals contact damage. It is unknown if this remnant of the boss is purely aesthetic or if it is related to some sort of secret, like the skull dropped by The Siren.
