This card is the second Level 5 "ZW -" monster to be released; the first was "ZW - Lightning Blade". Both of them do not include the name of the animal they depict in their card name. Each card's equipped form also appears in the background of the artwork.
In the anime, this was the second Warrior-Type "ZW -" monster to be revealed; however, its appearance is that of a Chinese/Oriental dragon. When revealed for the OCG/TCG, it was changed to a Dragon-Type, making it the first Dragon-Type "ZW -" monster.
This is the only "ZW -" monster to appear in a duel outside of the one it was originally created in.
