* In Norse mythology, [[wikipedia:Ragnarök|Ragnarök]] was the ultimate series of world-changing events, one of which was the submersion of the world in water, just like what the flavor text of this card alludes to.

* In [[Nordic|Norse]] mythology '''[[Ragnarok|Ragnarök]]''' is the battle at the end of the world. This further relates to its card description which says, "...Legends say that if provoked, the whole world will sink beneath the sea." Ironically, it only has 1500 [[ATK]], which is relatively weak considering it is a [[Dragon]] monster.
 
* This is the only card whose English texts have ever used the word "god". Along with words such as "demon" or "devil", "god" has been deemed religion-unfriendly and thus always been censored, or substituted for safer words like "lord", "entity", "deity", or as shown in this card's name, "divine", or omitted entirely. The word "goddess", on the other hand, is safe for all use cases. In other English-language media, such as the dubbed anime or the translated manga, the word "god" is still used, for example in the title "[[Egyptian God]]s". Other ''[[TCG]]'' languages, especially German and French, have more freedom to use their own words for "god" (e.g. German ''Gott'' ("god"), ''gottlich'' ("godly; divine"), ''Gottheit'' ("godhead; godhood; divinity"), ''[[Götterdämmerung]]'' ("twilight of the gods; Ragnarok"); French ''dieu'' ("god")), likely due to lack of alternatives, as with the case of their "demon" or "devil"-type words.
