  • The nose of this monster resembles the snout of a sawfish.
  • This card appears to be a "base" version of "Sharkraken". This relationship can be seen more easily in the direct translation of the Japanese name for "Shocktopus", which is actually "Sharktopus".
    • In this card's debut appearance, "Shocktopus" was Tributed for the Special Summoning effect of "Sharkraken"
    • This direct translation was likely not used to avoid copyright issues, as Sharktopus is also the name of 2010 Roger Corman film released on SyFy.
