In mathematics, topology is the study of the properties of space that are preserved under continuous deformations. This is referenced by this monster's tail being the shape of a Möbius strip and the protrusions in the shoulders being shaped like a Klein bottle.
Also in topology and knot theory, a branch of mathematics, the trefoil knot is the simplest example of a nontrivial knot. This is referenced by the shape of the energy that seems to be generated by the monster's right arm.
Furthermore, the knot in the card's artwork and Link Summoning in general may also reference to the concept in mathematical knot theory called a link, which is just a collection of knots which do not intersect, but which may be linked together.
Following the computer network themed cards, a network topology could be disabled or affected by one of the nodes being affected. As per this card's effect, when a monster is Special Summoned in a zone a Link Monster points to, a disturbance is applied on the field.
