    • McMillen describes Geller as a 'scam artist', so it can be gathered that this reference was not born out of appreciation.
    • Spoon Bender may also be a reference to The Matrix.
  • This item is used in Computer Savvy (challenge #16).
  • According to a Twitter post[2] from Tyrone Rodriguez, the Brimstone Brimstone + Spoon Bender synergy was modeled after the Plasma Laser, first introduced in the video game Raiden II.
