Card Trivia:Barrel Dragon
- This monster appears in the artwork of "Proton Blast".
- This card has an upgraded form, "Desperado Barrel Dragon".
- This card's effect and appearance, in the original Japanese artwork, are meant to reference the game Russian roulette. In the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga, Joey Wheeler explicitly makes the connection (fittingly, the one that played the card, Bandit Keith, claims to have played "real" Russian roulette at least once, during his slump after losing to Maximillion Pegasus).
