• This card's English name is a bit of a misconception: the words "tortoise" and "turtle" are often erroneously considered synonymous. Although this turtle's physical structure could be disputed, it is listed as a WATER Aqua monster, making hence the term "tortoise" incorrect, since it is strictly used to refer to land turtles. The Japanese card and the English dub use the term turtle, which is more correct; in British English, it describes the sea-dwelling creatures, while in American English ,it is a general term for both water and land dwellers.
  • This monster can be considered a contrast to "Gem-Turtle", which is a turtle, whereas this card is a tortoise.
    • They both have 2000 DEF.
  • Emerald Turtle's voice in the English dub is reminiscent of Filburt, a turtle character from the Nickelodeon animated series Rocko's Modern Life.
