Reduces all kinds of damage received to a half-heart.


  • The item reduces any damage Isaac receives to half a heart, instead of only halving it.


  • Using The Bible on Satan, Isaac or ??? after picking up The Wafer will not kill the player, but damages the player for half a heart. 



  • The Wafer is a reference to the consecrated hosts made of unleavened bread used in the Catholic Liturgy of the Mass.
  • When picking up The Wafer, the message shown at the bottom of the screen has misspelled damage resistance as "damage resistence".
