In the French dub of the anime this card was called "Mage Sans Visage" (Mage Without [a] Face).
In the Portuguese dub of the anime this card was called "Donzela Sem Rosto" (Faceless Maiden)
This monster appears in the English dub theme song of Yu-Gi-Oh!.
This card's OCG/TCG artwork is taken from Yu-Gi-Oh! Duelist - Duel 003, specifically from the panel where this monster is Summoned. This monster's pose is made vertical, however.
In the manga and anime, this card is said to be a very rare one, in that Yugi claims he hasn't seen one before his duel with Pegasus.
This card seems to be a spiritual predecessor to "Dark-Eyes Illusionist." Not only do they have highly reminiscent designs, with wide, pointed shoulders, underdetailed hands, a lack of a face, and a cloak (particularly in the manga, where the black-and-white artwork gives them an identical color scheme of black stripes on a white body), but they are both illusion cards used by Pegasus in an identical fashion (baiting an attack from Yugi's monster, then paralyzing it and taking control of it, using the strength of "Dark Magician" against Yugi in the process). They are even used at a similar time in the Duel (directly after Yugi regaining the upper hand). In this sense, "Dark-Eyes" can be seen as an upgraded version, as it does not require a support card to use this strategy.
