  • This card's OCG name uses the Japanese romaji of the word "barrel" while its TCG name is a play on that pronunciation.
  • Befitting the "bullet" motif of Varis and his "Rokket" archetype, this monster bears several gun-like features. Part of its torso resembles the six-chamber cylinder of a revolver handgun while its forearms resemble the barrels of one. Lastly, its mouth opens up and reveals a cannon when it attacks.
    • In fact, whenever a "Rokket" monster's effect is used in the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime, they transform into bullets, becoming literal cannon fodder for "Borrelload's" mouth cannon.
  • This card appears to contrast "Firewall Dragon", as both monsters appear to mirror their stances and have opposite color schemes in a similar vein as the rivalry between "Red Dragon Archfiend" and "Stardust Dragon". This can also be shown in their effects as "Borreload Dragon" forcefully controls other monsters before sending them to the graveyard whereas "Firewall Dragon" willingly protects other monsters and even returns monsters back to the hand. Due to this, "Borreload" can be considered as a rival to "Firewall".
    • Interestingly, "Borreload" is immune to "Firewall" bouncing effect, furthering this rivalry.
  • Similarly, this rivalry seems to extend to "Decode Talker" as well. With opposing color schemes and stances that mirror the other much like "Red Dragon Archfiend" and "Junk Warrior". The effects contrast each other as well: "Decode Talker" derives strength from other monsters to empower itself and protect them, while "Borreload Dragon" weakens other monsters to protect itself.Due to this, "Decode" and "Borreload" can be considered rivals as well, albeit only at the beginning of the series.
    • This is further implied by how "Decode Talker" defeated "Borreload" in the end of season 1 of VRAINS in a manner reminiscent of how "Junk Warrior" beat "Red Dragon Archfiend" at the end of 5D's. Lastly, both events involving a skirmish between the two monsters were foreshadowed in the first opening of each respective series.
    • Interestingly, "Borreload's" attack reduction effect is something "Decode Talker" cannot negate, adding to this.
  • Each of this monster's non-Link counterparts made their debuted in a Duel against one of the Ignis', and contributed (whether directly or indirectly) to that Ignis eventual demise.
    • "Borreload Savage Dragon" debuted in Varis' Duel against Windy, the WIND Ignis. It was the card he used to beat Windy, causing him to be crippled with a virus made by the Knights of Hanoi that he never recovered from.
    • "Borreload eXcharge Dragon" debuted in Varis' Duel against Lightning, the LIGHT Ignis. It was Varis' secret weapon against Lightning, prompting the Light Ignis to take Varis out with him, leading to him being in a near-death state before he willingly let himself be absorbed by Bohman.
    • "Borreload Furious Dragon" debuted Playmaker's Duel against the Ai, the DARK Ignis. While it wasn't Varis himself who summoned it, both of its effects were put to good use, allowing Playmaker to best the Ignis modeled after him, leading to Ai's subsequent termination.
