The chest after mom's heart

After killing mom's heart, I skipped the huge chest that dropped and immediately proceeded down to The Womb II in hopes of beating Satan. I skipped the chest because last time I opened it, the game ended(?) and credits rolled, and I was afraid that would happen again and I wouldn't have had an opportunity to battle Satan. But once Satan is unlocked, does opening that huge chest give me some kind of item or buff or something? I just don't want to be missing out on some kind of item =p

Thanks.

I'm going to assume this is only your second time beating the game, as after you beat the game 10 times (ie. open the chest after fighting mom's heart) that chest will stop appearing and you'll instead get a trapdoor down to Sheol. However, if a satan room happens to appear after beating mom's heart, it does give you a chance to go down to Sheol earlier than your 10th win. Personally, I never did this because I felt it was taking advantage of the game and that Sheol is something you should get only after beating the game 10 times. That said, every time you beat the game up to your 10th time, you'll unlock a new item and a new game ending.

There's another possibility to enter sheol early, happened to me:

Telepills on Womb II took me to the I AM ERROR room, the trap door there leads to the next level immediately. So my first Satan kill was on my 4th or 5th run through the Womb. (unskilled, but overpowered )

Ah okay, yeah I had a Satan Room open after beating Mom's Heart, and just assumed that was the regular way of getting down there. So, because I skipped the chest and went through the Satan room and died during the Satan battle, does that mean I still have only technically "beaten the game" once? Because I only opened that chest once?

It still counts.

You can even watch the ending video you missed.

If you manage to get to Sheol and kill Satan before you killed Mom's Heart 10 times, you'll still unlock the item you were supposed to get if you touch the chest on the Womb 2. Failing to kill Satan will still net you the item.

On top of that, killing Satan will always unlock Ending 11 at any time, even before you unlock Ending 10 or any subsequent ending, and it will count as an additional game completion.
For reference check the timestamps when I completed the game for the second time and third time.

The item you would have gotten is unlocked even if you go down in Sheol; if you can kill Satan before killing Mom's Heart/It Lives 10 times, it counts as another Mom kill, and actually makes it so you have to kill Mom's Heart LESS times!

I managed to do this on my 3rd Mom's Heart kill, and it unlocked endings 3, 4, and 11. Felt good to unlock all those goodies, even took a screenshot of how many endings I had at the time.

Thanks guys.

Another question: Does your first playthrough, just killing Mom, as Isaac, count as "completing the full game?" Because if so, I don't think my runthrough with Eve when I got to Sheoul through the Satan room and then died fighting him counted as a completion. I also don't have an achievement for "completing the full game with Eve."

So far I've killed Mom w/ Isaac, killed Mom's Heart w/ Maggy, and then attemptd Satan w/ Eve and died.

I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything because I love this game and want to get all the achievements haha. I've not care about achievements with any other game except this one for some reason.

No. It only unlocks The Womb and "I killed Mom" achievement.

So there's no "complete the game with Eve" achievement. only complete Sheoul with Eve? I don't really understand why when there's an achievement for completing mom's heart with like every other character XD

Mom's Heart/It Lives:

Isaac = Nothing
Maggy = The Cross
Cain = Penny Bag
??? = D6
Judas = Robo-Baby
Eve = Razor Blade

Satan:

Isaac = Mom's Knife
Maggy = Guardian Angel
Cain = Bomb Bag
??? = Forget Me Now
Judas = Monster Manual
Eve = Demon Baby

Hope this helps!
