  • This monster and "Firewall Dragon" are the first ace monsters of a spin-off protagonist whose Type is neither Dragon nor Warrior, thus breaking the pattern of the spin-off protagonists' ace monsters (though "Decode Talker" does resemble a Warrior and "Firewall Dragon" does resemble a Dragon, so they only break the pattern semantically).
    • It is also the first time a protagonist uses a newly created Type (in this case, Cyberse).
    • This card eventually being replaced by the 2500 ATK "Firewall Dragon" as Yusaku's ace monster mirrors Jaden Yuki's "Elemental HERO Flame Wingman", who eventually got replaced by the 2500 ATK "Elemental HERO Neos", Yusei Fudo's "Junk Warrior", who eventually got replaced by the 2500 ATK "Stardust Dragon", and Yuya Sakaki's "Odd-Eyes Dragon", who was replaced by "Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon".
      • This is mirrors Yusei Fudo more as both their ace monsters are replaced from a warrior type(or warrior like) monster to a monster with "Dragon" in its name.
      • "Decode Talker" and "Junk Warrior" are also both monsters with 2300 ATK and effects that boost their ATK through ally monsters.
      • This card's second effect is similar to that of "Stardust Dragon". Both sacrifice something to protect cards on the field.
      • However Decode Talker is used more often than Firewall Dragon.
  • This monster has a LIGHT defensive-based counterpart: "Encode Talker".
    • While this card is offensive-themed, its effect is far more defensive than "Encode Talker".
  • This monster has a WIND counterpart that supports others: "Excode Talker".
    • While this card's effect draws strength from others, "Excode Talker" grants strength to others and protects them.
  • This monster has a FIRE counterpart that sacrifices others for its own power: "Powercode Talker".
    • While this card's effect sacrifices others to protect others, "Powercode Talker" sacrifices others to empower itself.
  • This monster has an WATER counterpart that focuses on multiple attacks and additional card draws: "Shootingcode Talker".
  • This card can be viewed as a personification of Yusaku because it gains power by using others to achieve its goals (similar to how Yusaku views Ai as a tool for his ends).
    • Furthermore, its effect that requires sacrificing a monster it is Linked to for the safety of its allies is similar to how Yusaku wouldn't hesitate to delete Ignis if the Knight of Hanoi didn't stop his destruction of LINK VRAINS.
