- Joey Wheeler tells the story of "Gearfried the Swordmaster", in one of his duels. According to his story, the power of "Gearfried" was so great, that merely holding a weapon resulted in the widescale devastation of the entire battlefield. Fearful of his own might, he sealed himself in a suit of iron armor to limit his power. This "devastation" effect can be seen in the ability of "Gearfried the Swordmaster" to instantly destroy a monster when equipped, and "limiting his power" can be seen as "Gearfried the Iron Knight" cannot be equipped with any Equip Card.
- This card's Japanese name literally translates into "Swordmaster - Naked Gearfried". This is to show that he removed his armor, as seen in "Release Restraint".
- The version of this card from the French release of Flaming Eternity is misprinted, as the card is listed as a Dragon instead of a Warrior.
- "Gearfried the Swordmaster" appears to be wielding a sword from the "Swords of Revealing Light".
