  • This card along with "Stardust Dragon" are Yusei's favorite Synchro Monsters.
    • This card could actually be seen as the personification of Yusei due to its ability to draw strength from the weak very much how Yusei draws strength from his friends.
  • This monster seems to have been put as a specific Synchro of "Speed Warrior" and "Junk Synchron" as seen in "Urgent Tuning" and "Synchro Strike".
    • This is further suggested in the anime, as almost every time "Junk Warrior" is Synchro Summoned, "Junk Synchron" and "Speed Warrior" are used to Summon it.
  • This card being a protagonist's purple Warrior monster of the same card type as its user's ace with 2300 ATK, power up capabilities based on other monsters, and being the start of a monster archetype that its user frequently uses is similar to "Gaia The Fierce Knight" and "Decode Talker" (though the latter is a only a warrior aesthetically).
  • This card was the first and last Synchro Monster Yusei Fudo Summoned in the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's anime.
    • This card is also the featured card of the first and last episode of Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's.
  • On some printings, this monster's armor is blue instead of purple.
  • In Kizuna, the first opening song of Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's, the words "JUNK WARRIOR ATK 2300" are briefly displayed from inside Yusei's helmet visor.
  • "Junk Warrior" did not appear for over 30 episodes after episode 102 of Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's until it finally was Summoned in the last episode where Yusei used its ATK gain effect to defeat Jack Atlas.
  • The victory of "Junk Warrior" over "Red Dragon Archfiend" in the last episode can be interpreted as its payback after being beaten by "Red Dragon Archfiend" in the first season.
  • Despite being a Warrior, this monster strongly resembles a Machine monster.
  • This monster bears a strong resemblance to Eightron from the anime DT Eightron (both have a Football shaped head, made from trash, wears a scarf and are melee combatants.)
  • The signature attack of "Junk Warrior", Scrap Fist, was directly homaged in the first episode of the anime Senki Zessho Symphogear G, in which protagonist Hibiki Tachibana enlarged her right arm and engaged a set of brass knuckles, then rocketed forward with boosters on her back and a scarf trailing behind in a fashion identical to the typical stock footage of "Junk Warrior". The two series have the same director, Katsumi Ono, and Hibiki's design was even revised to add a scarf when Ono began working on the series. Upon the airing of the episode, he noted on Twitter that he was happy to draw it again.
