- This monster is based on Botis (also known as Otis), a demon described in The Lesser Key of Solomon and Pseudomonarchia Daemonum. Botis is a viper that can transform into a humanoid shape, in which he has big teeth and two horns, and carries a sharp and bright sword.
- This card has the same Japanese name (ボティス Botisu) as the demon Botis. However, because the letters "B" and "V" are typically represented by the same sound in loanwords in Japanese, its Japanese name could be interpreted as either "Votis" or "Botis" without context.
