  • This card is one of the few monsters whose ATK or DEF is not divisible by 50. Others include "Castle of Dark Illusions", "Sword Arm of Dragon", "Dark Chimera", "King of Yamimakai", "Barox", and "Number S39: Utopia Prime". Notably, PaniK had all of these cards in his Deck (except for "Number S39: Utopia Prime" (who was used by Yuma Tsukumo) and "Sword Arm of Dragon"), and they were all present in his Duel with Yugi Muto.
    • The ATK digits, in individual kun'yomi pronunciation, can be read as: 1 = hi 3 = mitsu 8 = ya 0 = ma
    • While the DEF digits, in individual on'yomi pronunciation, can be read as: 1 = i 9 = ku 3 = sa 0 = re
    • As a complete sentence, [himitsu yama, ikusare], or [秘密山、行くされ] loosely reads as "you are going to the secret mountain". In Japanese folklore, death gods, called shinigami, are known to possess people and lead them to mountains, seas, and railroads where people have died.
  • This card's OCG/TCG artwork is taken from Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel 82 (Duelist Duel 23): "Defeat the Darkness!", specifically from the panel showing this monster right before it 'attacks' Dark Yugi's Set Trap Card.
    • In the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga, Dark Yugi mentions that when it comes to using Spell/Trap Cards, this card is the most important thing to watch out for.
      • This is stated since this card's manga version is capable of destroying 1 Spell/Trap Card on the field with its effect, which Dark Yugi baited the Player Killer of Darkness into doing.
  • The Spanish Dark Beginning 1 print of this card has two different texts. It includes the words "destruyela" ("destroy it") and "devuelvela" ("return it") instead of "destrúyela" and "devuélvela".
