The Headless Horseman is an enemy in The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth. It appears as a Boss, occasionally replacing one of the four horsemen bosses.


The Headless Horseman has two parts to it (the head and the horse), each with different behaviors. They are as follows.

Horse and Body

  • The body will occasionally cough up IPECAC shots, the shots leaving red creep on impact.


  • The head will occasionally charge across the screen a total of three times, also occasionally shooting 3 tears in a wave pattern.


  • While the head has two eyes in the portrait, the head only has one eye in-game.
