Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The music that plays during this fight is titled Ventricide . Ventricide is a made-up word formed from the word ventricle (chamber of the heart) and the suffix -cide, which denotes an act of killing. This theme is used in other tracks, such as Matricide, Hericide, and Infanticide.
- Ventricide could also be a junction of the prefix ventr-, which could denote "belly", "stomach", or "womb" with the suffix -cide.
- It Lives, according to the developers, takes the shape of what Isaac looked like as a fetus.
- It Lives makes the same sounds as Mom's Heart.
