This card resembles "Thunder Dragon" since both of them are LIGHT-Attribute monsters that add cards from your Deck to your hand and can fuse another of its copy to form a Fusion Monster. Also, since Kaito resembles Kaiba, Kaito uses "Photon Lizard" while Kaiba uses Thunder Dragon.
Despite its cards name it is a dragon, when usually lizard means Reptile, it shares this trait with Lizard Soldier although the latter's description adds some insight as to why. There is a vice versa of this instance as well, the other being Evil Dragon Ananta which despite its name is a reptile not a Dragon.
Another similarity to "Cyber Dragon", in which it has dragon in its name but is actually a Machine.
