Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This item's name and unlock requirement are likely a reference to the biblical story of Jacob and Esau, in which Esau trades his birthrights to Jacob in exchange for stew. The reference is strengthened by the Birthright's specific effect when taken by Jacob or Esau, allowing them to "inherit" the items of their brother.
