Trivia[ | ]

  • Godhead is another term for Godhood or overall divine nature.
  • Godhead bears resemblance to the Eye of Providence, Eye of God, or The Eye That Sees All, a common Christian religious symbol. The three corners of the triangle may represent each part of the Holy Trinity.
  • The three corners of the triangle may also be a reference to Collectible The Mind iconThe Mind, Collectible The Body iconThe Body, and Collectible The Soul iconThe Soul items, as the colors of the corners match the colors of the items, that are also unlocked by The Lost.
  • This item appears in the Afterbirth † release date trailer.
