  • Theseus was the mythical king of Athens and was the son of Aethra by two fathers: Aegeus and Poseidon. This monster is probably inspired by the sea monster that is present in the storyline of his Six Labours: in a location named Megara, there was an elderly robber that forced travellers along a narrow cliff-face pathway to wash his feet. He then kicked those travellers off the cliff so that they were eaten by a sea monster. In this tale, Theseus was the one that pushed that robber off the cliff.
    • This card's name may also come from the thought experiment known as the Ship of Theseus, which questions whether an object (specifically a ship) that has all of its parts replaced remains the same object.
