Name

The name "Umiuma" appears to be a direct reference to the name "Kaiba". In Japanese, both names are spelled 海馬, but they use different readings of the same characters (the on'yomi and kun'yomi, respectively).

Kanji On'yomi Kun'yomi Meaning
カイ (kai) うみ (umi) sea, ocean
バ (ba) うま (uma) horse

The words "umiuma" and "kaiba" can both be used to mean "seahorse" (or, by extension, "hippocampus").[2] It is not clear if the title "Kaiser" was chosen in reference to Kaiser Sea Horse, a card which was used by both Seto Kaiba and Kaibaman.
