Chicken Flute is a passive item.

Effects[ | ]

  • Spawns a chicken that follows the player, blocks bullets, and deals 2.5 contact damage to enemies it touches.
  • After the chicken takes a certain amount of damage, an army of chickens spawns that attacks all enemies in the room.
    • This of course doesn't kill the original chicken companion, who can trigger the effect multiple times in the same room, should it take enough damage again.

Notes[ | ]

  • Synergy Bullet or the Egg - If the player has The Scrambler, its shots become larger and split into 10 seekers instead of 5.
  • Synergy The Elephant in the Room - If the player has Elephant Gun, it becomes an elephant head and shoots elephants instead of bullets.
  • Synergy Tea For Two - If the player also has Teapot, while reloading the Teapot, a small red aura will appear around the chicken. Every enemy in this aura will be ignited.
  • The chicken rapidly takes damage on electrified water, almost instantly triggering the effect.
  • The chicken can be damaged by Shock Rounds.
  • If duplicates of this item are somehow obtained, adds another chicken to the player's kit.
  • If the player has Grappling Hook, they can use it on the chicken to deal damage to it and activate it's army of chickens effect.

Trivia[ | ]

  • UnusedSynergy Unused: Chickensword - If the player has Blasphemy, Blasphemy will still be able to fire its sword projectile even when the player is not at full HP. Removed because it contains a starting weapon.
  • This item is a reference to Cuccos in the Legend of Zelda series, where if Link attacks a Cucco three times, an army of Cuccos will appear, attacking the player.
  • The appearance of the item itself is also a reference to The Fairy Ocarina in the Legend of Zelda series, which can play different songs which serve different purposes.
  • The pickup quote, "Fowl play", is a play on the common expression "Foul play" and the fact that chickens are a type of fowl.
  • The synergy Synergy Bullet or the Egg is a reference to the question "Which came first: the chicken or the egg?".
