Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

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 that change the color of Isaac's tears will also change the color of the shield; this effect is purely cosmetic.
  • When using Tainted Forgotten, the shield goes on the bone pile and not the soul.


  • Added in RepentanceMarked Marked: The shield will now face the crosshair instead of facing just four cardinal directions.


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