  • In Norse mythology, Jörmungandr, or "Midgard/World Serpent", is a sea serpent and the middle child of Loki and the giantess Angrboða. It was prophesied that Thor would slay it during Ragnarok, but he would then die from the dying beast's spewing venom.
    • When in Defense Position in the anime, this monster is shown to have its tail in his mouth, similar to an Ouroboros. According to Norse mythology, Jörmungandr is wrapped around the Earth with its tail in its mouth, and when it lets go, the world will end. This could be intrepreted as that when this card is changed to Attack Position, it unwraps itself and "brings the end of the world" by having its controller take a potentially devastating damage.
