  • Sophia (Σοφία) is the Greek word for wisdom.
  • This card is based on the Aeon Sophia in Gnostic Mythology.
  • This card bears a resemblance to the Baphomet, a medieval deity used as a symbol of duality, and in more recent times as a symbol of the Devil.
  • This card has two counterparts:
    • "Nekroz of Sophia", with the same ATK, DEF, Level, intrincate Summoning requirements and a watered down mass removal effect.
    • "Tierra, Source of Destruction", that has the same Level, but an "opposite" Type and Attribute (this card is a DARK Fairy-Type, whereas "Tierra" is a LIGHT Fiend-Type), reversed ATK and DEF values, harsh Summoning requirements, and similar mass removal effects that cannot be responded to.
      • In terms of appearance, "Sophia" has a natural, organic appearance, while "Tierra" is completely artificial and mechanical in form.
  • This card's Special Summoning condition refers to the powers of the "Gishki" (Ritual Monster), "Gem-Knight" (Fusion Monster), "Gusto", "Vylon", and "Laval" (Synchro Monster), "lswarm" and "Constellar" (Xyz Monster).
    • On closer inspection, this card seems to have a representation of each of the elemental Duel Terminal archetypes in its artwork. "Sophia" has two "Gishki Aquamirrors" for a bra ("Gishki"), two armbands with differently colored gems ("Gem-Knight"), a pair of green wings sprouting from her head ("Gusto"), flaming hair and a further modified crest of Laval tribe on her skirt ("Laval"), and orbs of light and darkness held in either hand ("Vylon" and "Constellar", and "Steelswarm" and "lswarm", respectively). In addition, there is a symbol of Dragunity between the two Gishki Aquamirrors. Also, the pattern of the tattoos on her arms resemble the plants commonly found in the artworks of "Naturia" and "Ritual Beast" cards.
  • This card's German lore has a major error; instead of Must be Special Summoned (from your hand) by banishing 1 face-up Ritual, Fusion, Synchro, and Xyz Monster from anywhere on the field, (...), it is printed Must be Special Summoned (from your hand) by banishing 1 face-up Ritual, Fusion, Synchro, or Xyz Monster from anywhere on the field, (...) which would make it ridiculously easy to Summon this card.
  • Part of this monster's design and posture alludes to a diagram of the human female reproductive system, further adding to the symbolism of a goddess and the theme of rebirth.
