Card Trivia

 This card's Japanese OCG name is derived from Satan, a major demon/fallen angel and the incarnation of evil and temptation in Abrahamic religions such as Christianity, Judaism and Islam.
Also, the title Satan, in Hebrew, literally translates to accuser or adversary, and is sometimes understood as a demonic force of duality and the opposite to Thamiel– the force of unity– in the Qliphoth.
This card's Japanese name Shaitan comes directly from the Arabic name for Satan, and can also mean astray or distant. Fittingly, this card's effect deals with Spin-type removal– leading the opponent's cards astray and unreachable.
This card and its effects could also reflect the role Satan played in the trials of Job in the Hebrew Bible. In the Book of Job, Satan challenged God that Job (a pious man with a righteous life) would turn from God if he were allowed to plague the man undeterred by God's protection. Job had his possessions and wealth stripped from him and his family killed by plague, but stayed faithful. In a similar fashion, Infernoid Shaitan strips the opponent of their niceties by throwing their Set cards back to the deck– disregarding the protection of their other effects.
Despite its name, this card is the least powerful Infernoid in terms of actual power, unable to be used offensively. It could reference how most mainstream religions and folklore up to the Medieval period portray Satan as a cowardly and stupid creature who is always outgambited by mortals and the forces of Heaven alike.
Pirmais translates as first in Latvian, referring to this monster's Level.
