Trivia[ | ]

  • In the original Binding of Isaac, this item was known as "Max's Head". Max was a non existing animal named after the rabbit of Edmund McMillen's sister.
    • (except in Repentance) The filename for the item icon in the game files still refers to it as "Max's Head".
    • According to Edmund's first post-Repentance Lore Stream,[1] the reason for the name change is due to the fact that it 'bugged him' to name an item after an animal that did not exist in a game that was written around his life.
  • Cricket's Head is named after one of Ed's former cats who is now rehomed, Cricket.
    • According to Edmund's first post-Repentance Lore Stream, the reason for re-homing Cricket was that Cricket became increasingly moody after the death of one of Edmund's other cats named Guppy, which involved getting into fights with Tammy.
  • Although Collectible Cricket's Body iconCricket's Body and Cricket's Head are presumed to be from the same animal, Cricket's Body has darker fur color and spots than Cricket's Head.
