Card Trivia

 This monster is the cover card of Code of the Duelist.
It is the first monster cover card not to appear in the anime before the succeeding Booster Pack's cover card monster.
This monster is the signature card of Yusaku Fujiki during the first season of Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS.
It shares the same ATK of 2500 as of the other signature cards: Dark Magician, Elemental HERO Neos, Stardust Dragon, Number 39: Utopia and Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon. These monsters are respectively the signature cards of Yugi Muto, Jaden Yuki, Yusei Fudo, Yuma Tsukumo and Yuya Sakaki, the previous main protagonists from the first five series of the anime
As a Link Monster, it is the first signature card of a main protagonist to not possess either a Level/Rank or a DEF.
This is the first Link Monster, as well as the first Cyberse monster, to be on the Forbidden/Limited Lists.
However, despite this monster being Yusaku's signature card, it has only appeared in three episodes of Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS season 2, and not at all since episode 82, which aired in December 2018 when this card was declared Forbidden in the OCG/TCG.
This card has an Xyz counterpart: Firewall eXceed Dragon.
Like Firewall Dragon, it is the cover card of Dark Neostorm.
This card has an evolved form: Firewall Dragon Darkfluid.
Like Firewall Dragon, it is the cover card of Chaos Impact.
This card is named after a firewall; a network security system in computing that monitors and controls the incoming and outgoing network traffic based on predetermined security rules.
Therefore, this card can represent Yusaku's actions as Playmaker against the Knights of Hanoi: Protecting the Virtual World against any threat that menaces it.
This card was the first Link-4 monster to be released.
This card has two downgraded Link-2 counterparts: Proxy Dragon and Security Dragon.
Their combined ATK, Link Ratings, and Link Arrows equal those of this card's.
Their effects are also very similar, with the effect of Proxy Dragon involving cards it points to being destroyed (though in this case it is a cost rather than a trigger), and the effect of Security Dragon returning cards to the hand once while its on the field if it is co-linked.
This card, Decode Talker and Cyberse Clock Dragon are the first ace monsters of a spin-off protagonist whose Type is neither Dragon nor Warrior, thus breaking the pattern of the spin-off protagonists' ace monsters (though Firewall Dragon and Cyberse Clock Dragon resemble Dragons while Decode Talker resembles a Warrior, so they only break the pattern semantically).
It is also the first time a main protagonist uses a newly created Type (in this case, Cyberse).
This card eventually replacing the 2300 ATK Decode Talker as Yusaku's ace monster mirrors both Jaden Yuki's Elemental HERO Neos, who eventually replaced the 2100 ATK Elemental HERO Flame Wingman, and Yusei Fudo's Stardust Dragon, who eventually replaced the 2300 ATK Junk Warrior.
Therefore the thematics of Firewall Dragon which, focus on recovery and Summoning back monsters to strengthen the field by its presence, can be similar to the effect of Stardust Dragon to protect the field from any harmful effect by its presence and Summoning itself back to strengthen the field.
Those similarities are also applied to their initial rival monsters Topologic Bomber Dragon and Red Dragon Archfiend, which are their complete foils and focus mainly to the destruction of the field to reign supreme by itself, as well as being the same Type.
This card also opposes Borreload Dragon, as both monsters feature opposing stances and color schemes similar to Stardust Dragon and Red Dragon Archfiend. Furthermore, their effects also oppose each other, as Firewall willingly protects other monsters, while Borreload forcefully controls other monsters before sending them to the Graveyard.
Because of this, Firewall and Borreload have a rivalry.
This monster's first artwork features a pose similar to the artwork of Stardust Dragon, while its second artwork is the form it transitions into in order to attack.
This monster's attack name, Tempest Attack, is likely named after Transient Electromagnetic Pulse Emanation Standard (TEMPEST) Attacks, which work on the principle of intercepting electromagnetic radiation emissions from electronic devices such as monitors, hard disk and PC memory from a remote location, and allow the replay of the information captured.
This card is the only Firewall monster whose Attribute is not DARK.
