Card Trivia

 This card's name and Type suggest that it was formed between a Level 4 Laval monster and Gishki Chain, indicating an alliance between the Gishki and Laval archetypes.
This is reflected in the card's effects, and how they work well with their respective archetypes:
The first effect allows Laval monsters to fill the Graveyard quickly for their effects.
The second one allows several Gishki monsters to activate their effects.
This card's ATK, DEF and Type are the same as that of Gishki Chain.
A Gishki symbol with the Laval symbol inside of it appears above this monster and on its chest.
This card is the first and, currently, only FIRE Sea Serpent-Type monster.
This card's effect may be a parallel to that of Daigusto Emeral; this card focuses on searching the Deck, while Daigusto Emeral focuses on searching through the Graveyard.
The two monsters may be rivals; both appear in Duel Terminal 13, and possess the same ATK and mirrored poses.
There are noticeable rivalries between the Lavals and Gem-Knights, as well as Gishkis and Gustos; Chain uses monsters from the former of each pair (both of which are allied portrayed as evil) as Xyz Material, while Emeral uses monster from the latter archetypes (also allied and portrayed as good).
This monster appears in the artwork of Freezing Point, Overlay Award and Overlay Regen.
This is the first Laval monster to be Forbidden.
This is the third Xyz Monster to be Forbidden in TCG, following Wind-Up Carrier Zenmaity and Number 16: Shock Master. It is later followed by Evilswarm Exciton Knight.
