Card Trivia

 This card was the first Fusion Monster to be Summoned during the second series anime, as well as being the first Fusion Monster to be Summoned by Yugi Muto.
This monster has an Xyz Monster counterpart and a retrained counterpart: Gaia Dragon, the Thunder Charger and Sky Galloping Gaia the Dragon Champion, respectively.
All 3 have the same Type, Attribute, ATK, DEF and Level/Rank.
This card's OCG/TCG artwork is taken from , specifically from the panel showing the end result of Polymerization fusing Gaia the Fierce Knight and Curse of Dragon together.
Interestingly, this card is a WIND monster, whereas its Fusion Materials are DARK and EARTH monsters. It shares this distinction with Chimera the Flying Mythical Beast. Coincidentally, both monsters are used by Yugi Muto/Yami Yugi in the anime.
This monster appears in the artwork of Corrosive Scales.
