  • This is the only card that was reprinted two times with "DUEL TERMINAL" written on it without actually being in one of the Duel Terminal sets.
  • This monster's name appears to contradict its appearance, given that the roses which adorn this dragon's body are red rather than black. However, when one examines the name more closely, one notices that this monster's skin is actually black in color, and the name can be taken as a more literal description of this monster's nature.
    • To elaborate: Because the name says that this is a "Black Rose Dragon", it is assumed that it is a "dragon of black roses" and thus the name does not adequately describe the appearance. However, it actually means that this is a "Black Rose Dragon" – a black-colored variety of a species of dragon that adorns its body with roses – which is an accurate description of the monster.
  • This card is the first of the "Signer Dragons" whose effect relates to a specific Type, as well as the first to have a specific support card (in this case, "Thorn of Malice").
  • This card has the lowest combined ATK and DEF out of all "Signer Dragon" monsters.
  • This card has been the featured card of an anime episode 4 times, more than any others.
  • This card's effects mirror Akiza's initial personality.
  • This card's ATK of 2400 is the same as "Red-Eyes B. Dragon", a signature monster of Joey Wheeler from the original Yu-Gi-Oh! anime series. Both Akiza and Joey became third protagonists of their respective anime series. Similar to how Akiza was initially hostile to Yusei Fudo, Joey was hostile to Yugi Muto before becoming friends.
  • This is one of four "Signer Dragons" that technically never got an upgrade throughout the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's series; the other three being "Ancient Fairy Dragon", "Black-Winged Dragon", and "Life Stream Dragon".
