Despite this monster's card text, this card was released in the TCG long before Magician of Black Chaos.
This monster is the apprentice and female counterpart of the Dark Magician.
This card has a retrained counterpart: Apprentice Illusion Magician
This monster is a cover card for Premium Pack 4.
This card's effect may refer to how Mana, its original spirit owner, vowed to train hard and become stronger to honor the death of her teacher Mahad (who became Dark Magician after his death).
This monster appears in the artwork of the following cards:
Bond Between Teacher and Student
Dark Burning Attack
Dark Burning Magic
Dark Magic Twin Burst
Dark Magic Expanded
Dark Magic Inheritance
This card has counterparts known as Magician's Valkyria and Gagaga Girl, as well as a supposed younger counterpart known as Card Ejector, a Toon counterpart known as Toon Dark Magician Girl, and an Xyz counterpart known as Magi Magi Magician Gal. In the anime, she also fuses with The Eye of Timaeus to form Dark Magician Girl the Dragon Knight
Dark Magician Girl is themed after the magical girl manga and anime subgenre, while retaining a shonen undertone.
The third artwork of Dark Magician Girl is based on the first artwork of Dark Magician. Both artworks feature the Magicians holding their hats with their left hands, holding their scepters with their right, floating in front of the Magicians seal with their knees bent and their legs tucked in.
In the 20th tome of the manga, when Yugi Summoned Dark Magician Girl during his Duel against Strings she appears the same way she is drawn on this artwork, and remained in this position until her destruction.
Newer reprints for this card (in Starter Deck: Yugi Reloaded and Premium Gold) do not have the 8-digit passcode.
This is one of the few times a card is reprinted without a passcode.
This card is the only Magician Girl monster to have only one effect.
