What Music They Make!
This sinister brooch was once worn by an unlucky inhabitant of the Gungeon, who used it to draw health from wounded enemies.

There is a curse upon it, however, and the cost may not be worth the benefit.

Blood Brooch is a passive item.

Effects[ | ]

  • Increases curse by 1 while held.
  • Heals the player for half a heart for every 1200 damage they deal.

Notes[ | ]

  • Synergy blade - If the player also has Kruller Glaive, its damage is increased by 20%, and enemies hit will visually bleed.
  • Synergy Fear the Old Blood - If the player also has Trick Gun, its reload time is decreased by 33% and fire rate is increased by 20%.
  • Synergy Venom Veins - If the player also has Mutation, it will poison enemies.
  • With Antibody, it's possible to recover a full heart whenever Blood Brooch's effect activates.
  • This item has no effect aside from increasing curse when playing as Robot.

Trivia[ | ]

  • The item effect is reminiscent of the rally mechanic in Bloodborne, whereby the player character can regain health by attacking enemies after taking damage.
  • This item and its synergy with the Trick Gun are references to Bloodborne where the old blood refers to the blood of the Great Ones.
  • The pickup line is a reference to Count Dracula's line, "listen to them — children of the night. What music they make" in the book and in the 1931 movie Dracula .
    • It may also be a reference to the Bloodborne character Father Gascoigne, to whose wife the Red Jeweled Brooch described above belonged, and who has a mechanic during his boss fight where he can be distracted with music.
