A book bound in leather made from human flesh, with an impression of a screaming face on the cover.

EffectsEdit

Upon activation, all enemies in the room will be damaged.

SynergiesEdit

  • Bloody Lust/Samson's Lock - All enemy projectiles in the current room are also destroyed upon use, which will count as "kills" for the extra damage effect.

NotesEdit

  • Triggering the effect of the trinket A Missing Page will also count towards unlocking The Necronomicon.
  • This item deals significant damage during the Mom fight, as it hits all the doors and the leg, leaving Mom with little health left.
  • This item works quite well against bosses with multiple segments (such as Larry Jr.) as every segment is damaged separately.
  • The Necronomicon can damage off-screen enemies, which is possibly a bug.

TriviaEdit

  • The Necronomicon is a fictional grimoire appearing in the stories of horror writer H. P. Lovecraft.
  • It is believed to be bound by human skin, explaining the face on the cover.
  • The book bears a strong resemblance to The Necronomicon in the Evil Dead series.
  • In the Collection, the Necronomicon is misspelled as "Necronomico".

BugsEdit

  • Using the Necronomicon on a Mask + Heart will only kill the 'masks', leaving the hearts alive, but one hit away from death.
