Tonsil Stone
Found
Given by Patches the Spider.

The Tonsil Stone is a Key Item in Bloodborne.

Description[]

In-Game Description

A latticed, deformed rock, or perhaps a meteorite.
Appears useless, but possesses some odd gravitational force that prevents its riddance. A dubious soul once said:
"Step lightly round to the right of the great cathedral, and seek an ancient, shrouded church... The gift of the god head will grant you strength..."

Location[]

Possible NPC doors to obtain the Tonsil Stone from, after setting foot in the Forbidden Woods:

Use[]

When the Tonsil Stone is in the Hunter's inventory, a Lesser Amygdala, in the Cathedral Ward, will teleport the Hunter to the Lecture Building on the 1st floor. To reach the room with the Lesser Amygdala, take a left at the bottom of the first set of stairs after exiting the Grand Cathedral, in the Cathedral Ward. Continue past the area with the well and down a few ramps passing two Executioners. The second Executioner stands near the entrance to the room with the Lesser Amygdala.

Walking up to the door in the room will trigger a vortex animation and the Lesser Amygdala will grab the Hunter, followed by a cut scene. Note that no Blood Echoes will be lost and +2 Insight will be gained. This can be used to reach the Nightmare Frontier faster for a player that wishes to PVP after entering a consecutive playthrough on their character.

Notes[]

Trivia[]

  • The Tonsil Stone is actually given to the hunter by Patches the Spider, who, at some point, temporarily replaces every NPC hiding from the hunt in their houses.
  • It looks like Amygdala's head. The description also refers to it.
  • It is possible that the stone is made from siderite. Siderite is mentioned to be a rare stone that came from the "heavens", which has magnetic properties, and since the Tonsil Stone's description describes it as possibly being a meteorite with "gravitational force."
  • The name of this item, in Japanese, is: '扁桃石'. '扁桃' means either 'tonsil' or 'sweet almond'; '石' means 'stone' or 'jewel'.
    • Incidently, '扁桃体' is the word for the brain part: Amygdala.
    • The scientific name for amygdala is: 'Prunus amygdalus'.
