In the anime, this is the first card that can attack all Special Summoned monsters your opponent controls, and only them, by its own effect.
When this monster activates its effect while the opponent controls at least two monsters, it is sheathed in an enormous cloak of flames, during which time it resembles "The Winged Dragon of Ra" (Phoenix Mode) (along with its potentially field-clearing ability).
This monster represents the rise stage of a rebellion. This is further supported by its effect and low ATK, which reflects crippling a minor asset connected a large oppressive order to symbolize and instill hope.
In addition as a further reference, whenever this monster is Summoned, the opponent often underestimates it due to its low ATK; only to quickly be overwhelmed by its effect.
