Card Trivia

 Zephyrus is the Greek god of west wind.
This is the first Blackwing monster that Special Summons itself from the Graveyard instead of its owner's hand.
This monster looks like it could be a mix of Blackwing - Shura the Blue Flame and Blackwing - Bora the Spear.
In the anime, this card could be Special Summoned repeatedly at the cost of 400 Life Points. Its restriction on once per Duel was probably meant to stop abusing cards like Mass Driver.
This monster's hairstyle and what appears to be its clothing look like its master, Crow Hogan.
The first printed editions in Spanish had the word regresar instead of devolver, which is the official word for return.
Honest, Burial from a Different Dimension, Power Tool Dragon and Winged Rhynos had the same word corrected in subsequent printings.
