  • It's not quite clear where its anime card came from, as it jumps as energy into Shear's hand after she takes control of Genie with Spectral Armor, but it wasn't seen in his Card Capsule during the flashback showing his activation. Perhaps it was generated by the armor once equipped, was sent by Seth once Shear could use it, or was actually in the Capsule just behind Genie's card.
  • It is the only Move Card in the anime where the image shown on the card is an actual scene from the anime. This also makes it the only known Move whose card image features a dinosaur wearing armor, and though the Ultimate Moves may have done the same given that armor is a requirement for their use, their images were never seen and so can't be confirmed.
  • The animation of Shear triggering this Move is recycled from her activating Heat Eruption, making them the only two anime Moves whose images were revealed while in Space Pirate possession (Anhanguera Dive's image was only seen after they lost it).
  • It is one of the few Move Cards of the Space Pirates' that was used by the D-Team/Alpha Gang after reclaiming it from a dinosaur defeat. The other ones were Hurricane Beat (obtained from Shear's Megaraptor), Green Impulse (obtained from Foolscap's Shantungosaurus), Heat Eruption (obtained from Shear's Mapusaurus), and Anhanguera Dive (obtained from Foolscap's Pachyrhinosaurus), though it's not clear if Terry's Magma Blaster was from Torvosaurus or elsewhere.
