Card Trivia:The Seal of Orichalcos

  • The runes around the rim of the seal are Enochian, with the runes spelling out "Oreichalcos" twice.
    • In the original Japanese version of the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime, the text on all "Orichalcos" cards are also written entirely in Enochian runes, except for "Orichalcos Sword of Sealing" (incidentally, the only "Orichalcos" card that Dartz did not use).
  • This card's effects are based on its appearances in the original Yu-Gi-Oh! anime.
    • This card's first effect of boosting the player's monster's ATK by 500 is identical to its anime conterpart.
    • This card's second effect of being immune to destruction once per turn is a reference to when Yami Yugi tried to destroy Gurimo's copy with "Dust Tornado"; while Gurimo claimed the card could not be destroyed at all, since it was never attempted to be destroyed again, Konami asserts that Gurimo was intentionally deceiving Yugi.[2]
    • This card's third effect of limiting the opponent's choices for attacking the player's monsters is a twist on its anime counterpart's effect to prevent the opponent from attacking monsters placed in the Spell & Trap Card Zone by its other effect. This effect is identical to that of "Pixie Ring", which Konami pointed out when announcing it.[2]
    • This card's fourth and fifth effects of preventing the player from Special Summoning monsters from the Extra Deck and destroying the opponent's Special Summoned monsters is a reference to when this card was played by Yami Yugi, destroying "Dark Magician Girl the Dragon Knight" and reverting it to its unfused state, and the fact that Yugi, Dartz, Rafael, Valon, and Alister did not Fusion Summon after it was activated. Ironically, Rex Raptor Fusion Summoned "Horned Saurus" in Yu-Gi-Oh! episode 161: "On the Wrong Track - Part 2" while this card was in effect.
    • This card's sixth condition of only activating once per Duel is a reference to how a Duelist who uses this card once in a Duel will not be able to use it again, as either they will win the Duel and trap their opponent's soul in the card, or they will lose the Duel and their soul along with it, barring DRAWs.
  • This was the first card to prevent the user from Special Summoning from their Extra Deck as a means of balancing its power. Later cards have since picked up on this, such as "March of the Monarchs".
  • This is the only card known to have received a printed mock-up.
  • Konami has pointed out that the number of sentences of text on the TCG print of this card matches the number of lines and points in this card's symbol.[1]
