** Rather ironically, when St. Catherine herself died, her own remains were divided and her head, now inserted in a bronze bust, was carried in a procession through Sienna (with her mother Luppa among the pilgrims and followers behind it). Then it was stolen several times, until it was finally located in the local Basilica of St. Domenico.

* the Irish legend cycle reinforces the historical truth that the head was regarded as sacred in Celtic society. A victorious warrior would collect the heads of those he killed as trophies, to be displayed in a prominent place in the hall; the legends recount several examples of great chiefs and warriors who would talk to the heads of vanquished foes, reliving old battles, treating them almost as living allies, asking their advice in times of trial.

** Creator/{{CLAMP}} probably got the idea from either Jonathan Joestar holding Dio Brando's detached head in ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', (though that's not quite an example of this trope because Dio isn't actually dead at the time) or ''Manga/{{Devilman}}'', where Akira holds Miki's head, since the situation is much closer to that in X: boy holding his beloved's head and all. That was one of the defining moments of the Devilman saga, by the way. CLAMP even did fanart of Satan holding Akira's head at one point, and they did doujinshi for both series before making it big on their own.
