A poll held by Shonen Jump magazine suggested that the English name of this card would be "Exodius, the Ultimate Forbidden One." This was also its name in the English version of World Championship 2008.
When this monster attacks in the anime, its right arm grows larger.
The first English print of this card mistakenly uses the color scheme of a Trap Card in the Attribute circle, instead of the color scheme of a DARK monster. This subtle error was corrected in later reprints.
