Trivia[ | ]

  • The design of the Sacred Orb seems to be based upon a globus cruciger, lit. "cross-bearing orb", a Christian symbol of authority.
  • This item is a stronger version of Character Tainted Lost iconTainted Lost's "better items" mechanic. Its unlock method is unusual, as most other tainted characters have items based on their unique mechanics unlocked by defeating Boss Delirium ingameDelirium instead of Boss The Beast ingameThe Beast.
