- Joey tells the story of "Gearfried the Swordmaster", in one of his Duels. According to his story, "Gearfried" wields a power so great, that merely holding a weapon resulted in the wide scale devastation of an entire battlefield. Fearful of his own might, he sealed himself in a suit of iron armor to limit his power (represented by this card's effect that destroys any Equip Card equipped to it). This "devastation" effect can been seen in the ability of "Gearfried the Swordmaster" to instantly destroy a monster when equipped.
- This card has several counterparts, such as "Lightray Gearfried", "Phoenix Gearfried" and "Gilti-Gearfried the Magical Steel Knight". (a fusion of it and Giltia the D. Knight).
- This card appears on "Dimension Explosion".
