Card Trivia

 This card's Japanese name references Frigg (sometimes anglicized as Frigga) is a major goddess in Norse paganism, a subset of Germanic paganism. She is said to be the wife of Odin, and is the foremost among the goddesses and the queen of Asgard.
In the Norse paganism, the goddess who holds the golden apples is Idunn, instead of Frigg.
This card's effect may refer to the Greek myth of the nymph Atalanta: she challenged her suitors to a running race, sure that nobody could defeat her. But Hippomenes, during the challenge, threw down the three Golden Apples, and Atalanta stopped running to pick them up, so he succeeded in winning. This card's effect works like the apples in the myth, because it stops your opponent's direct attack and gives yourself an advantage.
Malus is the Latin species name for apple. It also means evil in Latin, which mirrors the Token's Japanese name.
