This monster is the Xyz counterpart of " Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon", " Clear Wing Synchro Dragon", and " Starving Venom Fusion Dragon".
The orbs on its wings that start to glow before it attacks are similar to the ones on "Odd-Eyes" that do the same thing.
"Clear Wing" and "Starving Venom" also show a change on their wing.
In the anime, the signature users of all four monsters Yuya, Yuto, Yugo and Yuri also share very similar appearances to the point that they were mistaken for each other.
This monster's initial roar is the same as that of " Number 107: Galaxy-Eyes Tachyon Dragon", just as how "Odd-Eyes" reuses the roar of " Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon" and "Clear Wing" reuses the roar of " Number 99: Utopic Dragon".
However it abandons this roar for the simple snarl that also played during its initial Summoning in later appearances. This second roar is reused from the Japanese version of Number 17: Leviathan Dragon.
Also, like "Clear Wing" and "Starving Venom", its effect allows it to gain ATK dependent on the target of its effect.
Like how its counterparts are a reference to their owner's origin, "Dark Rebellion" represents Zarc's vengeance on humanity. Reflected by Yuto's action against Duel Academy.
This card is the first Xyz Monster to be Summoned in the anime.
It is also the first Xyz Monster to be used by Yuya Sakaki, the series' main character.
This monster has the following distinctions from the other Four Dimension Dragons:
It is the only member to not have a silhouette before it is revealed. However, it did have a silhouette when it first clashed with "Clear Wing" in episode 18.
According to director Katsumi Ono, the above scene was intended to take place in episode 1 before "Dark Rebellion" physically debuted in episode 7.
As an Xyz Monster, it is the only member that does not possess a Level.
It is the only member to possess only one effect. (As a Pendulum Monster, "Odd-Eyes" has both a Pendulum Effect (two in the / TCG ) and a OCG Monster effect.) It can, however, use its effect more than once per turn.
So far, it is the only member to appear in both the anime and the manga as the rest are replaced by their manga counterparts. However, its appearance is omitted in later chapters.
