- This card's name may be derived from the name of the Wind Goddess of Japanese mythology, Shinatobenomikoto (支那斗弁命).
- This monster appears in the artwork of "Ritual Foregone".
- Prior to "Nekroz of Sophia", this card had the highest ATK and DEF of all Ritual Monsters. It kept its title for over 12 years.
- This card's damage inflicting effect is similar to the burn damage effect of "Topologic Bomber Dragon", with the only difference in between the two being that "Shinato"'s effect only applies when it attacks a defense position while "Topologic Bomber Dragon"'s effect applies everytime it destroyed a monster by battle regardless of its battle position.
