Immunity Idol
Survivor Gameplay
Description An item that prevents a tribe from attending Tribal Council
Appearance(s) Every Season

The Immunity Idol is a small totem that symbolizes Tribal Immunity, and is awarded to the winning tribe(s) of an Immunity Challenge. Not to be confused with the Hidden Immunity Idol  or the Immunity Necklace , the Immunity Idol serves as a trophy-of-sorts that grants an entire tribe exemption from Tribal Council , thus avoiding elimination.

When tribes convene at an Immunity Challenge, the winning team passes back the Immunity Idol to the host moderators, who keeps hold of it until a winning team has been confirmed.

The idol is different every season and reflects the local culture or motif theme of the season. In seasons with more than two initial tribes, the Immunity Idol is separated into multiple pieces, to be shared by multiple tribes. In the event when the multiple tribes are spread into two new tribes, the tribe that wins the challenge would obtain the complete idol.



  • Shúa is the first tribe to win tribal immunity.
  • Hísshe is the first tribe to lose tribal immunity.
  • Uspekh currently has the most immunity wins of any tribe with eight.
  • Wewak and Uspekh are the only tribes to have the Immunity Idol throughout their run as a tribe.
  • Pobeda is the only tribe to never have immunity, and therefore holds the record for the least amount of immunity wins with zero.
    • Cardenas, Isis, Glarus, and Alaotra hold the record if tribes dissolved before merge are discounted, each with only one immunity win.
