Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

Trinity Shield is a passive item.

Effects[ | ]

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

Notes[ | ]

  • 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.

Bugs[ | ]

Bug Bug! When (in Afterbirth † and Repentance)Collectible Pause iconPause is used with Trinity Shield it creates a second shield that stays in place where Isaac used "Pause" which lasts for the active item's duration. Moreover both shields are flashing and can not block enemy tears for the duration.
Bug Bug! (in Repentance)Swapping characters using Collectible Esau Jr. iconEsau Jr. or as Character Tainted Lazarus iconTainted Lazarus will leave a stationary copy of the shield until Isaac leaves the room. The stationary shield still blocks tears.
