  • Compound Fracture Compound Fracture/Cricket's Body Cricket's Body/The Parasite The Parasite: Tears that pass through enemies will become Belial tears and split into smaller Belial tears. Non-Belial split tears can also turn into Belial tears if they pass through enemies.

  • Lachryphagy Lachryphagy: Eye of Belial tears can still be fed and will burst, and burst Eye of Belial tears will still be homing. Tears from regular bursts can also turn into Eye of Belial tears
  • Lost Contact Lost Contact: Piercing through a projectile triggers the double damage and homing effect.

  • Added in RepentanceSaturnus Saturnus: When an orbiting tear hits an enemy, it will turn into an eye of belial tear.

It won't be destroyed by enemies anymore. When there's no enemy close from it, it comes back into the orbit. As all 7 tears can become eye of belial ones, this synergy is significantly powerful.
