Synergies[ | ]

  • Collectible Aquarius iconAquarius: Each individual puddle will grant a different effect, and will copy the corresponding color.
  • Collectible Brimstone iconBrimstone (including Character Azazel iconAzazel's and Character Tainted Azazel iconTainted Azazel's) / Collectible Trisagion iconTrisagion / Collectible Technology 2 iconTechnology 2: Beam(s) apply a different effect every tick, and have an RGB filter. This can be used to rapidly apply different effects.
    • All of Collectible Trisagion iconTrisagion's lasers will share the same color at any given moment, regardless of when they were fired.
  • Collectible Dr. Fetus iconDr. Fetus / Collectible Epic Fetus iconEpic Fetus: Explosions still use the effects the tears give them, while also inheriting their synergies with the items they're based on and (for Collectible Dr. Fetus iconDr. Fetus) visually resembling them. (e.g. Dark Red becomes Collectible Hot Bombs iconHot Bombs, Green becomes Collectible Bob's Curse iconBob's Curse).
    • They don't gain damage from Red, or lose damage from Blue, however.

Trivia[ | ]

  • This item is named Playdoh Cookie in Antibirth; this potentially was changed due to copyright issues. Playdoh Cookie had only 5 different tear colors, and some were not included or had their effects changed in Repentance. Its pickup quote was also changed from "Multicolored tears".
    • Prior to Antibirth this item originated in the Community Remix mod for the original Binding of Isaac where it was based on a Reddit [1] concept.
  • The pickup quote of this item is possibly a reference to the Skittles' slogan, "Taste the Rainbow".
  • Most of the tear effects are correspondent to tear effects of a similar color or effect. The only exception is Dark Blue, which has no correlation to Collectible Proptosis iconProptosis.
    • Green resembles Collectible Scorpio iconScorpio's tears. Other poison items exist, but it is guaranteed much like Scorpio and matches its color.
    • Yellow resembles Collectible Mom's Perfume iconMom's Perfume's tears. Other fear items exist, but it matches that of Mom's Perfume.
    • Light Blue resembles Collectible Uranus iconUranus' tear color, minus the ice shape.
    • Pink resembles Collectible Mom's Eyeshadow iconMom's Eyeshadow's tears.
    • Red resembles the colors of Collectible Eye of Belial iconEye of Belial's sprite and Collectible Mom's Contacts iconMom's Contacts's tears.
      • Although Collectible Fire Mind iconFire Mind is less similar, it could be based on Fire Pits having an orange and red variant.
    • Purple resembles Collectible Spoon Bender iconSpoon Bender's tears.
      • Brain WormBrain Worm still counts as a form of homing, though it does not change tear color.
    • Orange resembles Collectible Rotten Tomato iconRotten Tomato's tears.
