Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Adds a golden tear every 20 tears fired, which causes enemies to turn gold and petrifies them for a few seconds (similar to 15►Midas' Touch Midas' Touch) at the cost of one coin. Golden tears can still be fired if Isaac has no money.
    • Unlike other tear effects, golden tears are fired alongside regular tears rather than replacing a regular tear.
    • With multi-shot abilities, whichever tear is the 20th since previous will produce the additional golden tear.
    • The golden tear does 2x normal damage.
    • Enemies killed while golden will drop 1-4 coins.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Tears fired from items that cause multiple tears to be fired at once, e.g. 15►20/20 20/20, 15►Monstro's Lung Monstro's Lung etc., are counted.
    • The gold tear is not duplicated by said items.
  • The Forgotten has separate tear counters for The Forgotten and Soul.

Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • 15►Chocolate Milk Chocolate Milk: How much the 20th tear was charged determines the size and damage of the golden tear.
  • 15►Compound Fracture Compound Fracture/15►The Parasite The Parasite/15►Cricket's Body Cricket's Body: Golden tears will still look like coins and will still split into other golden coins when hitting obstacles.
  • 15►Lachryphagy Lachryphagy: Golden tears can also be fed and will burst into split tears. Burst tears are not golden.
