• The titular "soul rope" in this card's artwork may be an homage to the "dark energy strings" that Yami Marik imposed on himself and Joey Wheeler during their Duel in the Battle City Finals.
    • Bulwarking this possible reference is the tying of this card's effect to how the strings were used in the Shadow Game, as similar to how the strings would impose agony onto either Duelist each time one of their monsters is ousted, this card's effect necessitates a monster being destroyed and sent to the Graveyard.
