• This monster is based on the Hercules beetle, a subspecies of the Rhinoceros beetle.
    • This card's English, German and Spanish names are based on the beetle's names which in turn are based on the Roman hero Hercules.
      • Its Italian name literally translates to "Herculean Scarab".
    • The OCG names are based on the beetle's English name, and its names in Japanese and Korean (ヘラクレスオオカブト Herakuresu Ookabuto and 헤라클레스 장수 풍뎅이 Herakeulleseu Jangsu Pungdeng-i) which in turn are based on Hercules's Greek counterpart, Heracles.
  • This card's OCG/TCG artwork is taken from Yu-Gi-Oh! Duelist Duel 007: "The Trap", specifically from the panel where this monster is Summoned.
