The Jewel of Light is a Master Mode-exclusive light pet-summoning item that has a 25*1/4 (25%) chance to be dropped by the Empress of Light. When used, it will summon a pet Fairy Princess that provides pink-colored light. It is fast and will always position itself slightly elevated behind the player.


  • Despite being exclusive to Master Mode, the fairy does not possess any unique abilities, such as the Wisp in a Bottle's manual repositioning or the Suspicious Looking Tentacle's treasure sensing. This, combined with the fact that it still has the same brightness as those items (120%) might render its usefulness rather limited.
    • However, one might prefer the fairy for its lighting color and static positioning behind the player's back.


  • The pet that is summoned is very similar to that summoned by Frozen Crown, and has the same flight patterns.
