Inside is a Christmas tree, a leg lamp (made from a real leg), and a rifle called "Rider," with a caption which reads, "Careful... you might put someone's eye out".

  • There is a boss monster called Rakkinishu. Its name is a reference to a carver boss from Diablo II named "Rakanishu".
    Rakkinishu will always drop a shield called "Cracked Sash", which shares its name with the lowest quality belt item in Diablo II.

  • When Baron Flynt is killed he will drop a unique shotgun called 'Boomstick'. Its info line states 'Beyond Groovy'. This is a reference to Bruce Campbell's character Ash in the movie Army of Darkness (1992). Ash refers to his shotgun as his Boomstick and frequently uses the expression 'groovy'.
