  • This monster's name is a combination of the Yamata no Orochi and Ame-no-Murakumo-no-Tsurugi.
    • This monster is likely based on the tale of the Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi. According to legend, the Shinto god Susanoo slew a Yamata no Orochi by cutting off all of its 8 heads while it was drinking from 8 vats of sake. He then proceeded to cut off all 8 of the creature's tails, where he discovered a great sword in the fourth tail, which he named Ame-no-Murakumo-no-Tsurugi. He later renamed this sword to Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi.
    • This card's Level and first effect (that banishes the top 8 cards from your Deck face-down) are possibly a reference to the 8 heads of the Yamata no Orochi. This card's second effect (that banishes 3 random cards from your Extra Deck face-down) is possibly a reference to the Imperial Regalia of Japan, 3 legendary items from Japan's history, one of which is the Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi.
