Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The item name and description are a reference to the dataminers who discovered the secret of The Lost within 109 hours of Rebirth's release.
    • The item and its pickaxe icon are a play on words on the term data mining, used in the context of gaming communities as extracting data from the game files.
  • The item's sprite is a recolor of the Notched Axe Notched AxeNotched Axe Icon.png3 roomsIsaac holds the axe above his head for as long as the spacebar button is held (or until he leaves the room). While holding the axe, Isaac can break any rock he touches, but cannot attack or pick up other items..
  • If used during the Mom fight, you will be able to see a normally hidden part of the leg sprite revealing a blue skirt with yellow polka dots.
  • If Dataminer is used right before traveling to the next floor, the music for the transition screen will be affected by it.
