  • A useful technique when Isaac have acquired Lord of the Pit is to hover over a pit and shoot at walking enemies like Globins and Gapers. These enemies cannot get to Isaac as long as he is above the pit.


  • Lord of the Pit could be a reference to the Magic: The Gathering card of the same name.
  • More probably, it's a reference to the Biblical term Abaddon, used to describe a deep pit, a demon living in a pit or Satan himself.
    • Another Devil Room item that grants flight, Spirit Of The Night, is also a reference to a Magic: The Gathering card.
  • The pickup quote of this item has "Demon Wings" (or "Daemon Wings", the old English spelling of the word) misspelled as "Deamon Wings".
  • The inverted cross is used in the Bible as a symbol of humility before Christ; St. Peter insisted he be crucified upside-down because he was not worthy of dying in the same manner as his lord. This cross is called the Cross of St. Peter. In popular culture, however, it is mistaken for a Satanic symbol.
