Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Grants a familiar with random tear effects, fire rate, and damage.
    • The familiar's damage scales from ~2-6, and tear delay scales from ~12-30.
    • The familiar takes the appearance of a random co-op baby.
    • The familiar is randomized upon entering a new floor.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The tear effects available are the same as on the 15►Fruit Cake Fruit Cake item.
  • The familiar's tear appearance isn't linked to the normal effect such tears would have.
  • Some tear effects like 15►Proptosis Proptosis and 15►Tiny Planet Tiny Planet do not have their associated stat boosts and thus are very ineffective.
  • Familiars with the 15►Serpent's Kiss Serpent's Kiss effect can drop Black Hearts when an enemy is killed.
  • Familiars will not do contact damage.
