"Uria, Lord of Searing Flames" is the Sacred Beast counterpart of "Slifer the Sky Dragon", noted by its red color, serpentine body, sharp, pointed facial features and second mouth, in addition to their similar ATK-increasing effects. However, while "Slifer" is the Egyptian God entity of lightning, "Uria" is the Sacred Beast's entity of fire.
This card shares an evil version with "Slifer the Sky Dragon" called "The Wicked Eraser".
The Sacred Beasts are named after angels in Judeo-Christianity; "Uria"'s name is an alternate spelling of the name of Uriah, which means "the Lord is my light".
