- The "
Ｖ.Ｆ.Ｄ." in this monster's Japanese name could stand for Vicarius Filii Dei, Latin for "vicar of the son of God." It is argued that the sum of the letters in "Vicarius Filii Dei" when converted to Roman numerals, equals the number of the beast; further referenced by its furigana reading "The Beast."
