Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Godhead is another term for Godhood or overall Divine nature.
  • The Godhead bears a strong resemblance to the Eye of Providence, Eye of God, or The Eye That Sees All, a common religious symbol also used in Christian religions. The three edges of the triangle may represent each part of the Holy Trinity.
  • Godhead is arguably the hardest/most grueling item to unlock in Rebirth and Afterbirth, as it requires having to kill every final boss, on hard mode, with The Lost.
  • The three triangles on the corners of the Godhead icon may be a reference to 15►The Mind The Mind, 15►The Body The Body, and 15►The Soul The Soul items.
  • This item appears in the Afterbirth † release date trailer.
