  • Dlc a† indicator.png Collectible Lachryphagy icon.png Lachryphagy: Tears will move towards Isaac and can still be fed and burst. The bursted tears will also move towards Isaac.
  • Collectible A Lump of Coal icon.png A Lump of Coal: The tears increase in damage as they are pulled towards Isaac.
  • Collectible The Ludovico Technique icon.png The Ludovico Technique: The tear will slowly move towards Isaac, and the shot speed increase allows the tear to be moved much faster.
  • Collectible Mom's Knife icon.png Mom's Knife: No effect, as the knife already has this effect.
  • Dlc r indicator.png Collectible Montezuma's Revenge icon.png Montezuma's Revenge: Causes the beam range behind Isaac to become significantly increased as well as having a short range similar to Azazel's beam in front of him. This greatly eases the use of this item allowing for high DPS.

  • Collectible Rubber Cement icon.png Rubber Cement: Isaac's tears will continually be pulled towards him, effectively reducing the chances that tears will bounce.

In-game Footage

Trivia

  • This item is a reference to the concept of a mirror breaking when being looked into, usually played as a joke on ugly characters being 'so ugly they break the mirror'.
    • This may be a commentary on Isaac's poor self-esteem.
    • This item may also be a secondary reference to the superstition of a broken mirror causing seven years of bad luck.
  • In his first post-Repentance Lore Stream, Edmund McMillen stated that Isaac's visual appearance (ie: the crescent shape on his forehead) is simply a reference to the shape of boomerangs, as the item causes Isaac's tears to come back to him like the movement pattern of a boomerang.
    • Some have also drawn parallels to the visual appearance of the titular protagonist of the anime Sailor Moon, in which Sailor Moon has a crescent shape upon her forehead. This is likely coincidence, however.
  • In the same lore stream, McMillen explained that the reason Isaac's tears return to him is simply due to the idea of attacking a mirror, with the tears being reflected backwards similarly to how shiny surfaces (such as mirrors) reflect light.
  • This item is the only one to apply a multiplier to Isaac's shot speed, instead of a plain bonus.
  • This item is used in Challenges #7 (Suicide King) and #15 (Slow Roll).
