Card Trivia

 This is the first Number to be originally shown in Kyoji Yagumo's possession that isn't a multiple of 7.
This card is named after Lancelot.
Given that all of Kyoji Yagumo's Numbers are molded to the situation at hand, this one appears to have been made as a direct counter to Ryoga Kamishiro's strategy of rapidly Summoning Bahamut Shark, and then using its effect to Summon Number 47: Nightmare Shark.
Lancelot is seemingly based off of Silver Chariot, one of the Stands from the series JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, due to the overall body shape, coloring, and the choice of weapon (a rapier).
Like other Numbers associated with Kyoji, this card is related to sin. In which case, this particular monster could represent the deadly sin of Lust, due to Lancelot's love affair with King Arthur's wife, Queen Guinevere.
Tristan, Knight of the Underworld and Isolde, Belle of the Underworld are ideal Xyz Material for Summoning Lancelot, and are based on the Celtic legend of  Tristan and Iseult, which is cited as an influence on the romance between Lancelot and Guinevere.
