** Bumbo from ''Afterbirth'' has won a lot of fans over with his array of rather useful abilities. The fact that he grows by collecting money, which tends to be rather useless later on, also helps.

** The Butter Bean, in all versions of the game. It's a spacebar item that only has the effect of producing a small fart that can knock back some enemies. At least it recharges spontaneously in ''Rebirth''.

* SelfFanservice: On occasion, most often happening to Eve. It might have something to do with her starting item...

** The sound of an Angel or Devil Room opening up after a boss kill. [[spoiler:Unless you have to fight Krampus, that is.]]

** The Blighted Ovum. Similar to Gemini, this one has the added "benefit" of being the same speed as the player sans-powerups and leaving behind lethal blood trails that deal '''A FULL HEART OF HEALTH IN DAMAGE''', along with a "little brother" that pukes blood lasers. And the blood trails stick around for ''just'' enough time that you ''will'' step on one after completing a circle around the room. If the Ovum isn't dead or close by then, and you lack flight, you are very screwed.

** Leapers, the bane of any player going for a NoDamageRun. Their erratic jumping makes them hard to hit consistently, they can jump to any part of the screen with little warning, and when there's four of them, the screen tends to be filled with bullet spam from repeated jumps. A real pain to deal with.

Added DiffLines:

** Fat Bats are both a literal ''and'' a metaphorical example of this. They come with a boatload of health, have unpredictable bullet attacks with no tell, and try to avoid your shots. On the other hand, they're also slow and don't shoot very often (and when they do, it's relatively simple to dodge). As a result, they're not exactly dangerous so much as tedious to fight.


Added DiffLines:

** Scolex. He behaves similarly to [[BreatherBoss Pin]] and is about as dangerous as that implies, except that [[AttackItsWeakPoint only his tail segment is vulnerable]]. As a result, you generally only get a window of about a second or so to damage him every time he jumps, meaning that the fight usually drags on for far longer than it has to. Fortunately, he has one attack that leaves the tail vulnerable for a rather long time, but AIRoulette means there's no guarantee of him actually using it.

* By the time you reach Chapter 6: Headless Horseman Heads. Their size, speed, and health make them take a while to kill (unless you're ridiculously overpowered), they fire three-way blood shots, and they often spawn in groups of two or three, or are accompanied by either [[DemonicSpiders Demonic or Holy Leeches]]. By this point in the game they aren't really that dangerous, but they're certainly ''annoying'' to fight through.

** Most challenges where you're blindfolded and thus unable to fire tears falls into this category, such as "Cat Got Your Tongue" (rely only on flies and Guppy's Hairball for damage) and Solar System (orbitals only).

** Little Horn from ''Afterbirth''. His attacks aren't terribly dangerous and he doesn't have too much HP, but the problem is that he ''never holds still''. Much of the fight has you chasing him and dealing chip damage as he teleports around the room dropping Troll Bombs, praying that he kills himself by teleporting into one. Finally, he's a Basement boss, meaning that you're unlikely to have any good items to speed up the process.
