A Trinket is an item that provides combat benefits to the player, similar to the way unique variants or perks do. Unlike most other gear items, trinkets require a Slot Upgrade in order to be equipped.
Unlike other equipment, trinkets require Trinket Slot Upgrades in order to be used for combat.
- Trinket Slot Upgrades are often additional prizes from various Prize Boxes, as well as always available from the Supply Depot.
Trinkets are purchased at level 1 and do not level-up (they do not require or take Heat).
The Elite Trinket Box contained several different kinds of trinkets as potential prizes.
Players often "cash in" trinkets at vendors if they have enough "extra" spark Tokens. Simply trade your tokens for a "junk" trinket at Brinks, then sell that trinket to a vendor for "quick cash."

|Below is a group of elaborate sortable Gear Lists. This show/hide contains information about how to use these lists efficiently.|
About Gear Lists
It is best to use these lists to find items with 2 or more properties you desire and then use the show/hide for each item to compare stats. For a general quick search, try using the relevant category system, like Category:Armor.
Click on the item name or icon to go to that item's page. An item's page will have much more information, such as how to acquire that item and so on.
This list is generally sorted by Order of Release when in default, alphabetically if tied.
Sorting the abilities column groups positive abilities, penalizing abilities (text of penalties is pink), and items with no abilities together, but this is not convenient for finding something specific.
Use the Control+F keyboard function to find specific abilities you desire. Press enter to go through each find. For example, searching for "Fiend" will find any items that have abilities that deal with fiends. Editors have added the word "uniform" to relevant items and use abbreviations for convenient searching.
These abbreviations are commonly used by the player community:
The text in the abilities column otherwise matches up with the text in the abilities image in-game.
Most icons in this table have important comparative information in popup tooltip text. To see this tooltip text, hover your cursor (mouse) over an icon for a moment. If you are browsing without a cursor, there is another way to see this information, but it is restricted to the visual seen in-game. Access the show/hide tabs in the name column to see these visuals. There is more information about how these visuals translate to text in the "for defensive/offensive" item sections below.
It is important to note that the table's STATUS resistance/weakness columns will not reliably sort items ascending or descending based on their values. While the table is certainly capable of sorting this way, it seems to make players miss items because of how they are grouped. Since this table is useful primarily for simply finding items that have combinations of properties, and THEN comparing them, the potential to miss an item because it hangs out near the bottom of an otherwise grouped bunch of items is not ideal. Since most items of the same star level offer the same level of resistance, this is for the best of both scenarios.
Thus, for the overall convenience of both new and veteran players, the status columns of the table simply sorts into groups, and provides comparative tooltip texts as well as in-game visuals in each item's show/hide cell.
For defensive items
About icons in this table:
Click the show/hide to the right of the item's name to view its stats and abilities - these visuals translate like so for status columns. This applies to armor, helmets, and trinkets (natural non-UV shield status resistance bars are simply always full. Certain status resistant trinket bars fall below low, while others fall somewhere between low and med. Thus shield and "non-UV level equatable" trinket status bars are not included in this visual):
For the defense columns, the tooltip text is always a number equal to its full bars + the pixel count of its partial bar. The first part of the bar isn't counted - all items (except trinkets) have the type symbol and a small blue bar to start the bar aesthetically. All such images are of an item when it is unheated. Here is an example translation:
A special note: while these differences within star levels are apparent, most of them do not seem to be truly significant when taking, say, a stapler to the face from a devilite while in the field. There are plenty of discussions about these issues on the Spiral Knights Forums - here is an example thread that focuses on the influence of depth on items. In short, it is best to make an item for its abilities and basic defenses, and to not worry about the tiny differences between items that share damage type defenses and status properties.
For offensive items
It is important to consider what these lists can - and can't - tell you.
