- This monster is based on the Baku, a tapir-like creature from Japanese and Chinese myth, known for eating dreams.
- Its OCG name is also a pun for the Japanese word "Bakudan", which means "bomb" in Japanese, referring to its effect of destroying the monster it is equipped to.
- This monster's TCG name is a combination of "explode" and "opposum". Despite this, it does not resemble an opossum at all.
- However, the Spanish name preserves the Japanese pun with "Tapirplosión".
