  • The item's name is a reference to the band, Nine Inch Nails.
  • The visual effect on Isaac may also be a reference to a line in Eminem's "My Name Is", in which he says, "Wanna see me stick Nine Inch Nails through each one of my eyelids?". This line is also a reference to the aforementioned band.
