The Blinking Mirror (またたきの手鏡, Matataki no Tekagami, Blinking Hand Mirror) is a recurring item in the Suikoden series. The mirror has the power to return the user to their home base under most conditions.
When the Toran Liberation Army recruited Hellion in Teien, she gave them the Blinking Mirror. A larger mirror appeared at Toran Castle with Hellion's recruitment and was the location the Blinking Mirror return its users to. The Blinking Mirror itself looked like a small hand mirror.
It said that the Gate Rune War's end was accelerated thanks to this magical hand mirror.
- As the Blinking Mirror is not a key item in Suikoden, be careful not to drop it accidentally. If you do, it's gone forever. Also be careful not to give it to Gremio when you're in Soniere Prison, Pahn before his duel with Teo or Viktor before the battle with Neclord or else you'll be doing a lot of walking. In fact, because some characters can also die in war battles, your best bet is to just keep the mirror on yourself.
