The Bob of Bob's brain/rotten head as a character
Who is the "Bob" whose head and brain appear in both flavours of the Binding of Isaac? (I think his brain only appears in Rebirth/Afterbirth)

Has Edmund given any hints as to who he is in the game or if he was based on anyone and if so who?

In-game, he appears to be dead, his brain and head are both green and cause explosions.

I think if Bob were introduced as a playable persona for Isaac (as all the characters you play as are) or as a famiiar, he would be a green guy in a jumpsuit with shoulder pockets who begins with 1 red heart, 3 or 2 combat and Isaac's speed.

He would yell "THEY'RE EVERYWHERE!" when starting a battle with monsters and bosses at 1 heart or less and start the game with a new item called "Electronic A.rse" (a jab at EA) which functions like the kamikaze but always respawns him upon death. He would still vulerable when it is being charged and would yell "FROG BLAST THE VENT CORE!" when the item is triggered.




Just my suggestion but it is a damn good one. Any other ideas as to who Bob is meant to be? (other than just a random name for his two items)

Bob = Sloth.
I'm pretty sure this was confirmed.

That makes sense, given Sloth's explosive attacks and his coloring.

True ,True. I was thinking of something else that he could have been based on, assuming Edmund is a Bungie fan.

Now you can become the Bob in Afterbirth.

everyone here is saying Bob = Sloth

what they're forgetting to mention is that Bob = Sloth = Bob Sloth

Mr. Sloth is the only character in the game with an established and legitimate first and last name
aka. two names that are the one name where neither of them are just descriptions

I think Sloth and "BoB" may well both have been based on these guys:

As I mentioned above. perhaps BoB as a character in Isaac could be designed like them.
Bob is Sloth
We can turn in Bob in Afterbirth
Im hope edmmund add other sins transformations
