Bugs[ | ]

Bug Bug! Resuming a Character Jacob and Esau iconJacob and Esau run with Found Soul equipped in Esau's trinket slot will require a controller to continue. If a controller is available and plugged in, 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. If no controller is available, the run is softlocked and cannot be continued.
Bug Bug! When used together with Azazel's StumpAzazel's Stump, the soul familiar sometimes keeps Character Azazel iconAzazel's properties (flight and short brimstone) for a few rooms after Isaac has transformed back to normal. Lil ClotLil Clot also has this bug.
Bug Bug! If Collectible Sulfur iconSulfur has been used in a room before picking up Found Soul, it will retain Brimstone until dropped/killed, even through rooms.
Bug Bug! Entering one of the portals created by Collectible Card Reading iconCard Reading, Collectible Lil Portal iconLil Portal, and Collectible Ventricle Razor iconVentricle Razor causes the familiar to become invisible until Isaac drops and picks up the trinket again or sometimes from entering a new floor.
Bug Bug! The game will crash if Found Soul collides with a ConfessionalConfessional, and the game will crash upon attempting to reload the run, effectively terminating it.
