It is also the first alternative "Number" not to have an added element before the digits in its name.
This card's effect is an improved version of the effect of "Number 39: Utopia".
This card may come from the expression "roots of evolution", which states that a beginning or primordial stage of evolution is unbalanced, weak or strong, and as it evolves, it compensates by counterbalancing some traits it loses.
This card's artwork angle is mirrored from that of "Number 39: Utopia", to the point that "Utopia" even wields its sword in the opposite hand (right in the original "Utopia", left in "Roots").
This is the only form of "Utopia" released in the TCG/OCG that isn't a cover card or a promo card.
