This monster bears a resemblance to Yami Yugi with a scar over one eye. In the anime, his voice actor is also the same as Yami Yugi's.
This card's Spell-banishing effect is a reference to how when it was Summoned in the anime, Dartz's "Orichalcos Tritos" was immediately wiped out. Meanwhile, in the TCG/OCG, banishing is the most efficient way to remove "The Seal of Orichalcos" from the field (as it can protect itself from destruction).
In the anime, this was the only Legendary Knight to be destroyed more than one time.
A warrior that resembles this card makes an appearance in "Mirage Ruler".
