  • This monster is based off the Dungeons & Dragons representation of a Mesopotamian goddess, Tiamat. Dungeons and Dragons depicts Tiamat as being a five-headed goddess of evil dragons, with each head colored one of the primary colors of chromatic dragons - blue, green, red, black, and white.
    • Accordingly, "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" strongly resembles Bahamut, Tiamat's rival and god of good dragons. This is fitting, as "Blue-Eyes" is a LIGHT monster, one of two Attributes that can destroy "Five-Headed Dragon" in battle.
      • Its upgrade, Dragon Master Knight was also used to combat "Five-Headed Dragon" in the anime and is one of the few cards in the real game able to destroy "Five-Headed Dragon" by battle.
  • This monster has 5 heads: a center silver EARTH head, a mechanized WIND head, a black DARK head, a FIRE head, and a blue WATER head. There is no LIGHT based head, referencing its effect of only being able to be destroyed by LIGHT (and DIVINE) monsters.
