Just like the anime effects of "Odd-Eyes" and "Dark Rebellion", this card's effect affects Level 5 or higher monsters. Unlike the other two cards, however, and like "Clear Wing", that characteristic was retained for this card's OCG/TCG effect.
Like how its counterparts are a reference to their owner's origin, "Starving Venom" represents Zarc's desire for power, his own corruption and sadistic personality, which is reflected by Yuri's corrupted personality.
This is also the first Dragon "Venom" monster, as well as the strongest in terms of ATK.
This is the first Fusion Monster in the OCG/TCG that is not Special Summoned via Contact Fusion to specifically state which location its Fusion Materials must originate from, in this case, the field.
This card's requirement for its Fusion Materials to be on the field most likely reflects how its Dimension Dragon counterparts require their respective Materials to also be on the field.
Unlike the other members of the Four Dimension Dragons, this card's Japanese name does not contain the Japanese name of its Summon mechanic. Its name contains a transliteration of the English word "Fusion" (フュージョン Fyūjon) instead of the Japanese name for Fusion (融合 Yūgō).
