Card Trivia

 This card was the first Level 4 Synchro Monster.
The flashing background seen in this card's artwork can also be seen further away in the artwork of Junk Archer.
The wording of the latter part of this card's effect is very similar to that of a Union monster except that it does not have the Union monster's limitation of one per monster, nor does it protect the equipped monster from destruction.
This card's English name has become somewhat of a gag by the fan community. Since the monster is an autonomous gauntlet and machine as a sole monster, it could very well be an armored arm. In this context, Armory Arm becomes a pun.
In the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's anime, this card is the only Synchro Monster used by Yusei Fudo that he did not have a chant for when performing its Synchro Summon.

If a monster equipped with "Armory Arm" destroys "Colossal Fighter" by battle and sends it to the Graveyard, then the effect of "Armory Arm" and the effect of "Colossal Fighter" will form a Chain. "Armory Arm" is Chain link 1 and "Colossal Fighter" is Chain link 2. The effect of "Colossal Fighter" resolves first and Special Summons "Colossal Fighter", then the effect of "Armory Arm" resolves but since "Colossal Fighter" is no longer in the Graveyard, no damage is inflicted.
