Card Trivia

 This is the cover card for Premium Pack Vol.4.
This card has a Link/retrained counterpart: Darkness Metal, the Dark Steel Dragon.
As Red-Eyes Black Metal Dragon is a metalized version of Red-Eyes Black Dragon, this card is a metalized version of Red-Eyes Darkness Dragon and as such has the same ATK and DEF as Black Metal Dragon, which ties them for having the highest original ATK and DEF of all Red-Eyes monsters.
Unlike Black Metal Dragon, this monster is a Dragon instead of a Machine.
Also unlike other Red-Eyes monsters, the printed version of this card's only direct relation to them is it's name and image (since the requirement of a Red-Eyes to Summon it was completely removed, rather than altered).
This card has the highest Level of all Red-Eyes monsters.
In the anime, the Summoning procedure of this card is based on that of Red-Eyes Black Metal Dragon, since it requires Metal Plus to be equipped to Red-Eyes Darkness Dragon (with Metalmorph and Metal Plus both having Magic-Reflection Armor in their Japanese names).
This is the first Red-Eyes monster to become Limited.
This card along with Dandylion were the 2009 Shonen Jump subscription promos. Together, they were released in the Absolute Powerforce: Special Edition.
