Card Trivia:Satellite Cannon

  • This card's effect and name suggest that, each turn, this monster collects solar power or some similar form of energy, and then releases this energy in the form of a laser when it attacks.
  • As the anime suggests, this monster is a satellite, and so is floating in outer space. This is why only high Level monsters can attack it, because otherwise it is out of range from enemy attacks.
    • An interesting note is its anime effect is stronger than its card effect but it has a bigger weakness to compensate for it, a trait rare in anime effects. It can't be destroyed by battle by a Level 7 or lower monster and battle damage is negated. In exchange, if it is attacked by a Level 8 or higher monster, its ATK becomes 0. In the actual game, it doesn't negate damage if it's not destroyed, but its ATK doesn't become 0 either.
  • In a 40 card Duel, there are 34 End Phases (unless the size of the Deck changes). That means, this card's ATK can become 34,000.
