Card Trivia

 This monster appears in the artwork of Crystal Bond, Crystal Flash, Crystal Conclave, Golden Rule, Rainbow Path, and Trap Strap.
The name Ruby Carbuncle is a double pun, since Carbuncle is also a type of gemstone, as well as a mythical creature, alleged to be seen in Latin America. Legends say the Carbuncle has some sort of jewel on its head.
It may also refer to a skin condition of the same name, which is a boil that bursts and leaks with pus.  In an analogous sense, that is similar to the ruby (carbuncle) that breaks and reveals the monster when this monster is Summoned in the anime.
This monster has an Advanced Crystal Beast counterpart: Advanced Crystal Beast Ruby Carbuncle.
This card's name and appearance are similar to that of Carbuncle, a recurring summon in the Final Fantasy game series, in where Carbuncle is also known by its Ruby.
In Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Tag Force 2, this monster can be seen jumping on the lower right hand corner of the loading screen.
In the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX English dub, Ruby Carbuncle is the only Crystal Beast to not have a voice based on a celebrity; in fact it's also the only one to be incapable of human speech, instead making cat-like squeals.
