* In the ''ComicBook/DeRodeRidder'' album ''De Ijzeren Kroon'' [[note]]The Iron Crown[[/note]], there turn out to be three copies of the Iron Crown of the Lombards, each made with one of the three nails (two for his hands, one for both feet). In the end {{Merlin}} magically combines the three into one, which then gives Johan enough holy power to take on the demon Baalfemort (which he could barely scratch before) on equal terms.
