Other similarities include that both the anime effect of this card and "Odd-Eyes" specifically affect Level 5 or higher monsters, and this requirement was dropped for both monsters in the OCG/TCG effect.
The orbs on its wings that start to glow before it attacks are similar to the ones on "Odd-Eyes" that do the same thing.
In the anime, the signature users of both monsters, Yuto and Yuya Sakaki, also share very similar designs, such that they were mistaken for each other.
This card's effect, appearance, and pose all resemble that of "Number 96: Dark Mist". That card also had a character version that was positioned as a counterpart to Astral; in a similar manner, Yuto is a counterpart for Yuya.
