Disambig-dark.png This article is about Found Soul, similar in appearance to Your Soul and Lost Soul.

Found Soul is a trinket added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance.

Effects[]

  • Summons a Familiar that follows Isaac's exact movements, akin to Jacob and Esau Jacob and Esau, and shoots spectral tears.
    • The ghost uses Isaac's tears, range, shot speed, tear effects, and trinkets, and deals 0.5x Isaac's damage.
    • The familiar has collision and can be separated. Holding down the "drop" button keeps the familiar in place.
    • When Isaac places a bomb, the familiar will drop one as well at no cost.
    • The familiar can press Buttons.
  • The familiar dies after taking any damage, and will respawn on the next floor.

Notes[]

  • If Found Soul is dropped before its death animation finishes, it will still be available for the current floor if picked up again.
  • First time pickup of this trinket may result in it not scaling with Isaac's speed properly. Regardless of Isaac's current speed, Found Soul's speed will be at 1, which may lead to detrimental de-syncs. This issue is usually fixed by traveling to the next floor.

Synergies[]

Found Soul is capable of copying the effects of most items, including but not limited to:

Active Item Interactions[]

In addition to copying/doubling many passive items, Found Soul can utilize the same active item as Isaac, effectively doubling them. Items that are affected by Isaac's damage will scale with Found Soul's damage instead. These include, but are not limited to the following:

Special Interactions[]

  • Abyss Abyss: Using Abyss will have the locusts orbit the soul. If the soul is dropped or dies, all locusts disappear and do not come back when picked back up or when it respawns next floor.
  • Anima Sola Anima Sola: Chains the same enemy twice at once, to no further effect.
    • Anima Sola + The Battery The Battery: Unchaining one of the enemies and using Anima Sola again allows chaining two enemies at once.
  • Breath of Life Breath of Life: Will kill the soul at any point during the charge.
  • Dark Arts Dark Arts: The soul will use Dark Arts along with Isaac. Enemies can be marked by both Isaac and the soul. It will gain its own damage boost.
  • Dead Sea Scrolls Dead Sea Scrolls / Metronome Metronome: The soul will double only the active effects that it can double.
  • Dull Razor Dull Razor: Allows the soul to activate items that would otherwise be useless, such as Old Bandage Old Bandage, Fanny Pack Fanny Pack, Varicose Veins Varicose Veins etc. It can also be used to dodge damage.
  • Everything Jar Everything Jar: Regardless of current charges, the soul will always pay out with a poop on every use of the jar.
  • Jar of Wisps Jar of Wisps: The soul will spawn a single random wisp each time, and the amount spawned do not increment with each use.
  • Lemegeton Lemegeton: The soul will get its own Lemegeton wisps orbiting it, but none of them give their respective item effect.
    • Lemegeton + Book of Virtues Book of Virtues: Wisps spawned by the soul while Isaac has Book of Virtues will be buffed.
  • Magic Fingers Magic Fingers: The damage is only applied from the soul's part, meaning this item will always deal less damage while the soul is carried around.
  • Mom's Bracelet Mom's Bracelet: The soul can indeed pick up rocks and throw them, despite lacking sprite work.
  • Notched Axe Notched Axe: The soul can swing the axe once, then breaks permanently, unable to be recharged.
  • Red Key Red Key: With proper placement, the soul can open another red room, for free.
  • Sharp Key Sharp Key: The soul will throw its own key in tandem with Isaac. The throw still costs one key.
  • Scissors Scissors: The soul will spew its own blood fountain, but no extra head will spawn.
  • The Scooper The Scooper: An extra Peeper familiar is not spawned; however, the soul will benefit from the right eye damage boost.
  • Sprinkler Sprinkler: While soul is alive, reduces Sprinkler's damage by 20%.

Other Interactions[]

  • Heartbreak Heartbreak: The ghost gains 2 extra hits per floor and every hit the soul takes will damage all enemies in the room as well.
  • IBS IBS: The soul itself can never trigger IBS, however when Isaac receives a poop, so does the soul.
  • Isaac's Heart Isaac's Heart: The soul becomes immortal and can not be killed. Likely a soon-to-be-fixed bug.
  • Spirit Shackles Spirit Shackles: The soul will be chained next to the spot it got hit. Proceeding to not get hit again for a short time will revive the soul as normal.

In-game Footage[]

Trivia[]

  • This trinket is a reference to Lost Soul Lost Soul.
  • The text when picking up the trinket, "Finally!," is a reference to the "Finally, Upgrade" meme.

Bugs[]

Bug Bug! While Found Soul is alive, damage dealt to bosses is reduced by 20% in an inconsistent manner. Isaac's normal tears, Mom's Knife, Spirit Sword, familiars' attacks (including Found Soul) and contact damage are reduced, but many other attacks such as Brimstone and Dr. Fetus are not.
Bug Bug! Resuming a Jacob and Esau Jacob and Esau run with Found Soul equipped in Esau's trinket slot will require a controller to continue. After plugging the controller, Found Soul can be controlled like a Co-op baby and won't mimic either brother's movements. This effect won't happen if Jacob holds the trinket.
Bug Bug! When used together with Azazel's Stump Azazel's Stump, the soul familiar sometimes keeps Azazel Azazel's properties (flight and short brimstone) for a few rooms after Isaac has transformed back to normal. Lil Clot Lil Clot also has this bug.
Bug Bug! The synergy with Purgatory Purgatory can cause the game to crash if the soul familiar dies while the item effect is active.
Bug Bug! If Sulfur Sulfur has been used in a room before picking up Found Soul, it will retain Brimstone until dropped/killed, even through rooms.
