Trinkets are the personal items you get during a run in Ship of Fools. Every Fool has their own trinket, trinkets are run-specific and can’t be saved for another run, and are acquired at random on the pink necklace symbols on the map. Since trinkets have the ability to enhance your run, here are the best trinkets in Ship of Fools.

Every Trinket in Ship of Fools

Because trinkets are strictly random, it isn’t super important to know what every trinket is and how to use them. Whenever a trinket comes along, pick it up. Since you can hold an infinite amount of trinkets, knowing which is the best isn’t as important as knowing which ammo is the best.

All Trinkets in Ship of Fools Ranked

The best trinkets to get in Ship of Fools are the ones that greatly increase your chances of dealing a critical hit, greatly increase your projectile damage, and add the Fire status effect to your attacks. Though every trinket is good in its own respect, those are the trinkets that are the best.

Trinkets with “light” in their names are better than others but are only acquired by successfully completing a section with a curse, which is acquired at the broken vase symbol on the map.

Depending on your Fool, some trinkets may greatly benefit and slightly change your playstyle for that run. But regardless, having more trinkets, whatever they may be, is better than having fewer trinkets.

Ship of Fools is available now on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
