Tonsil is a trinket added in Afterbirth †.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • When hit, there is a small chance a removed tonsil familiar starts following Isaac, blocking enemy shots.
    • The effect can happen twice, after which the trinket will be destroyed.
    • The familiar does not deal damage to enemies.

Added in Afterbirth †
  • When the familiar is generated, Isaac will gain the familiar permanently as a passive item. This allows Isaac to drop the trinket while keeping the familiar.
    • The passive Tonsil item does not exist in any item pool; thus, this is the only way to find it and make it appear in the Collection Page aside from starting with it as Eden.
  • If Eden starts with the passive tonsil item and picks up the trinket, the trinket will spawn only one familiar before being consumed.
  • On average, each familiar spawns after approximately 16 hits. [citation needed]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Tonsils are soft tissue located near the back of the throat which can be removed without much noticeable difference.
