• This card is based on the "Basilisk", a serpent which was hatched by a cockerel from the egg of a toad or serpent. It was depicted as having features of a cockerel during the times of Medieval Europe.
    • It is also similar in appearance to the "Cockatrice" a two-legged dragon with the head of a rooster.
      • Both the Basilisk and the Cockatrice were said to be able to kill or turn to stone whomever they looked at, which this monster's effect mimics.
