Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In Hebrew, Sheol is translated as "place of the dead"; it is described as the common grave of humans in Jewish religious lore (including the Old Testament), making it the Abrahamic version of the underworld.
  • Sheol is the 9th level in the game (without there being a Curse of the Labyrinth). The 14th-century novel Dante's Inferno, one of the first books to describe hell in detail, notes that the 9th layer of hell is frozen. On Isaac's last will, it says he died in "a cold place" if he dies in Sheol.
    • In addition, the 9th layer of hell is said to be where Satan is imprisoned, indicating the reason for Satan's presence in the area.
  • Like in all chapters, small noninteractive objects can be found on the ground. One of these decorations is a drawing of a triangle that can possibly be a reference to the Triforce, an iconic relic from The Legend of Zelda series.

Music[edit | edit source]

The music for Sheol is titled Duress. The term duress means intimidation or coercion, and usually denotes violence.
