Trinity Shield is a passive item.



  • Isaac uses a shield to block shots.
  • The shield stays in the same direction until Isaac fires in another direction.


  • The shield can block diagonally by holding down 2 arrow keys at once.
    • Tears will be fired vertically while the shield is at an angle.
  • The shield can't block beams or explosions.
  • The shield can be held in any direction if you're using a joystick.
  • Many items change the shield's color as if were a tear or another weapon, but the change is only cosmetic.


  •   BFFS!: No effect.
  •   Notched Axe: While using this item, the shield stays in place. It returns when the effect ends.
  •    Maw of the Void: Trinity shield briefly stays fixed in place during the start of the effect.
