They provide passive bonuses, but only one can be held one at a time. The collectible item Mom's Purse allows two trinkets to be kept at once, but not two of the same trinket. The held trinket is displayed in a slot in the upper left portion of the screen.
Trinkets can be foundEdit
- After completing a room
- In normal and golden chests
- Fortune Telling Machines
- In the Top Secret Room
- Dropped always when picking up the item Box
- Dropped from a blown-up Slot Machine
- Re-rolled from another pickup with the D20
- Dropped by the Bum Friend
- After defeating Mom (Polaroid) (Providing it is unlocked.)
- Dropped by Ultra Pride (The Left Hand)
Once a trinket drops, it can drop again, but has a very low chance and the trinket dropped will appear reversed (except Mom will still drop the Polaroid at 100% even if you already have it). If all trinkets have dropped, tarot cards will start dropping in their place.
List of TrinketsEdit
|Name & Image||Effect||Info|
If you have other familiars, they may follow ???'s Soul instead of Isaac.
|Ace Of Spades||Improves chances of finding Tarot and Suit Cards.||
Holding this items will give a small boost to the chances of finding suit cards: 2 of hearts, 2 of diamonds, 2 of spades, 2 of clubs and the joker card.
|Bloody Penny||Gives a 50% chance to drop a 1/2 heart when money is collected.||
Effective trinket for bloodbank gambling, often the penny dropped from a bloodbank will give a 1/2 heart allowing a "free" roll.
Works well with IV Bag.
|Burnt Penny||Gives a 50% chance to drop a bomb when money is collected.||
Unlocked by completing the Large Marge challenge.

|Cancer||Decreases Tears Delay by 2. (see Tears on stats pages for calculation)|
|Child's Heart||Increases the chance of receiving hearts from drops (clearing rooms, enemy drops, etc.)|
|Counterfeit Penny||Gives a 50% chance of increasing the value of every coin pickup by one. Can be found in Golden Poop.||Unlocked by completing the Isaac Was Good Today challenge|
If Isaac's health is brought down to 1/2 of a red heart, Isaac is then teleported to the last room he was in. If Isaac only has Soul Hearts as health, or only has 1/2 of a red heart and soul hearts, he will be teleported upon taking damage, as well as teleporting ??? every time he takes damage.
If you are brought down to a 1/2 heart near the end boss battle (Example: You kill Monstro II but his flies brought you down to a 1/2 heart) you will have to complete the boss battle again. You only get one reward for killing the boss since the first battle was not finished.
|Eve's Bird Foot||
Gives a chance of spawning a Dead Bird familiar when attacking an enemy for that room only.
Unlocked by completing The Chest with Eve.
|Flat Penny||Gives a 50% chance of spawning a key upon collecting a penny. Also may rarely spawn a Golden Key.|
|Fish Head||Attack flies spawn every time Isaac gets hit.||Unlocked by completing the Lord of the Flies challenge|
|Isaac's Head||Gives the player Isaac's severed head as familiar. It is similar to Brother Bobby, but it has piercing tears.||Unlocked by completing The Chest with Isaac.|
Clearing rooms may heal Isaac by 1/2 of a heart (10% chance).
|Judas' Tongue||Items in the Devil Room only cost 1 heart. Soul heart trades still cost 3 Soul hearts. Only works if you have the trinket before revealing the Devil Room.||Unlocked by completing The Chest with Judas.|
|The Left Hand||
Replaces all normal chests with Red Chests. Gold chests are affected as well.
|Unlocked by defeating Ultra Pride.|
|Liberty Cap||25% of giving Isaac a random passive effect from Mushrooms as well as its corresponding visual effect upon entering a room.
Bug v1.48: Can also randomly add The Compass effect.
When playing as ??? will generate a spirit heart when you gain the health up effect from Odd Mushroom (large). This spirit heart does not disappear when you exit the room.
Increases the chance to get a drop after clearing a room. Although the Luck stat also influences this, it does not actually increase the Luck stat.
Unlocked by Completing the 7 Years Bad Luck challenge.
|Maggy's Faith||Gives an eternal heart at the start of every floor.||Unlocked by completing The Chest with Maggy.|
|Match Stick||Increases the chance of receiving bombs from drops (clearing rooms, enemy drops, etc.)|
|A Missing Page||
5% to induce The Necronomicon's effect upon taking damage.
Increase the chance of red heart pickup becoming a soul heart when spawned (approximately by 10%). This effect stacks with the item Mitre
|Pinky Eye||10% chance to fire a poison tear.||There's a possibility to fire poisonous bombs with Dr. Fetus.|
If Isaac's HP is 1/2 heart or less or takes damage that would reduce his HP to 1/2 heart, he will receive a brief shield similar to the Book Of Shadows. This effect ignores soul hearts. The effect always works for ???.
Since 1.4, it is always dropped by Mom (provided it is unlocked).
Unlocked by completing Cathedral six different times. You may use the same characters for all six completions.
|Push Pin||10% chance to fire a spectral tear and piercing tear.|

Improves drop rate of pills.
|Samson's Lock||Have a chance of increasing damage each time Isaac kills an enemy for the current room. When damage is maxed, Isaac and his tears turn red.||Unlocked by completing The Chest with Samson.
This is the same effect as Bloody Lust, but maxes damage more quickly. When used in combination with Bloody Lust, damage will be maxed even more quickly.
When entering boss rooms, bosses spawn with 15% less health; and one heart of your health bar gets restored.
Cannot be swapped out for another trinket.
Adds a tick to Isaac's head. When fighting The Fallen, once he splits in two, both copies will have their health reduced as well.
Might be disadvantageous when playing with Eve: The player entering a boss room in the Whore of Babylon state will fight the boss in the character's regular state.
|Umbilical Cord||When Isaac's health is brought to one half of one heart, a Little Steve familiar spawns.||Applies only for the current room, making it mostly useless unless you can maintain low red hearts all the time.|
Match Stick, Safety Cap, Child's Heart, and Ace of Spades make a chance of spawning a respective item from the following locations:
Note that they don't replace drops from the sources mentioned above, so the dropped trinkets are an addition to the default loot.
