Given how that there are so many mods thanks to Afterbirth+'s modding tools,should there be a "recommended mods" page? There's one for Oblivion,Skyrim and Fallout 4,so it's not an entirely new thing.

Why was the following

  • Bittersweet Ending: The "Missing" ending can be interpreted as this. While Isaac is without a home, he survives his mom's murder attempt, and, according to Word of God, he eventually becomes the protagonist of Time Fcuk.

deleted from the main page?

Probably because Ending 17 continues directly on from Ending 15, and... Well... Isaac's dead.

The Ur-Gurdy thing mentioned in the Ymmv page is just a piece of fanart that went amok. And the "Rarely appears in Sheol" thing is just a Sheol-colored Womb in the original fanart.

Here's the original archived reddit post by NotYourSagittarius:

How should we categorize the bugfix in Rebirth that prevents the game from crashing if you manage to generate all the items in the game's inventory by simply spawning nothing but Breakfasts, like Bisnap has demonstrated in his breaking runs?

Guys, guys, I have a brilliant idea.

Instead of listing Game-Breaker as a trope on the page for this work, which is famous for having Game Breakers, many of which are not subjective as the author himself acknowledges, discusses, showcases the gamebreaking combinations, let's just hide it in a commentary which you will only see as you edit the page.

This commentary will tell you to go to a different page.

That page will tell you go to another different page!

Do you like this amazing idea? I'm sure that makes a lot of sense. Let's implement this bullshit. This is a wiki, right? It's supposed to have links. Let's split the game breaker page into two pages, one for the original and wotl, another for rebirth too, more links, everyone is extremely happy all the time.

All of this comment is sarcastic.

What's with the list of examples following the bit on Purposefully Overpowered? It's almost entirely focused on the items' drawbacks rather than explaining how they can actually be helpful.

The troper that added World of Pun claims they're everywhere, but I actively searched for them and found only four. So, either I'm missing a lot of puns, or that trope should be taken off. If there are indeed many puns in the game, some more examples should be added in my opinion.

It's also an Zero-Context Example. I did change it to a Pun example, since the example context seems to fit.

I went through Nightmare Fuel Coloring Book trope and the entire page depicting The Binding of Isaac. The entire game is this, and I think it should be noted.

I went through the page and revised the ??? entries so that they actually use spoilers to hide relevant information about the character. Now we need to decide if we want to keep it hidden, or unspoiler it entirely.

As I mentioned in the edit summary, there's really no point in spoilering just the name "???", given that it adds no meaningful information about the character.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.

The next one might be easier to see.
