Translation notes:
  • The Main Deck @Ignisters are all named after various sound-symbolic words, with slight alterations:
    • Pikari comes from pika ("flash" or "sparkle") + hikari (the Japanese word for "light").
    • Bururu comes from buruburu ("shivering with cold").
    • Doyon is a word that signifies a sinking, depressed feeling.
    • Achichi is a twist on an exclamation uttered when touching something overly hot.
    • Hiyari is a mimetic word for feeling a sudden chill or shiver, or being suddenly frightened.
    • Doshin is onomatopoeia meaning "with a thud."
    • Don'yoribo comes from don'yori ("dark," "gloomy," or "overcast") + "Kuribo."
  • Ai-Uchi combines Ai's name with the Japanese word aiuchi (lit. "draw" or "tie").
  • Ai Love Fusion (Ai Rabu Yuugou) is a pun on the fact that the yuu in Yuugou ("Fusion") makes it sound like "I love you."
  • Senka is a combination of sen ("war") and the last kanji of the Japanese name for China: 中華 (Chuuka)—the last kanji means "flower" or "splendor."
  • This theme is based on Romance of the Three Kingdoms— a 14th-century historical novel attributed to Luo Guanzhong. It is set in the turbulent years towards the end of the Han dynasty and the Three Kingdoms period in Chinese history. The story—part historical, part legend, and part mythical—romanticizes and dramatizes the lives of feudal lords and their retainers, who tried to replace the dwindling Han dynasty or restore it.
  • All the monsters are named after characters in the novel, with their names taking the following structure: the first kanji is the first kanji of the character's given name and the second kanji is the second kanji of the character's courtesy name. A courtesy name is a name bestowed upon one at adulthood in addition to one's given name.
  • For detailed information on who is who, see HHTurtle's comment.
  • The "Senka Outline" Spells/Traps depict well-known story plots and scenes from the novels.
  • The Three Visits is a reference to a story plot in the novel where Liu Bei accompanied by Guan Yu and Zhang Fei travels three separate times to Longzhong to find and recruit Zhuge Liang, who lived in a tatched cottage depicted in the artwork. They cannot locate him during the first two visits and only succeed on the third. This story has given birth to an originally Chinese proverb (三顧の礼 sankonorei) which means "showing special confidence and courtesy (to someone, often to convince them to take a post, etc.)."
  • The Valor at Changban is based on the Battle of Changban, fought between the warlords Cao Cao and Liu Bei.
  • Ku-na-mu-san is written with the kanji for the numbers 9, 7, 6, and 3, respectively. Its name is meant to sound like namusanbou—the Homage to the Three Jewels—a Buddhist song dedicated to the Three Jewels (Refuges) of Buddhism (the Buddha, the Dhamma, and the Sangha).
  • Shi-roku-ni-shi is written with the kanji for the numbers 4, 6, 2, and 4, respectively. It's based on the Japanese common toad of Mount Tsukuba, known for having 4 fingers on its forefeet and 6 on its hindfeet (in actuality, it has 5 on both, but the thumb on the forefeet has only a trace amount of bone, and there is a bone-like bulge on its hindfeet, making it look like a sixth finger).
  • Bu-rei-bu is written with the kanji for "nothing," "zero," and "military arts"/"bravery." It's meant to sound like the English word "brave." A gongen, literally "incarnation", was believed to be the manifestation of a buddha in the form of an indigenous kami, an entity who had come to guide the people to salvation.
  • Toad Oil is based on Mt. Tsukuba's local cure-all toad oil produced from the sweat of the Mt. Tsukuba toads.
  • Leased Karakuri Inn Storehouse is meant to sound like a tongue-twister in Japanese (Kari Karakuri Hatagokura). A hatago was a lodging for travelers prominent during the Edo period.
  • The "Megalith" theme is named after the large stone that forms a prehistoric monument (e.g. a standing stone) or part of one (e.g. a stone circle).
  • The theme's Ritual Monsters are all based on the seven Olympian spirits, which are mentioned in several Renaissance and post-Renaissance books of ritual magic/ceremonial magic:
    • Aratron (or Arathron), "the alchemist who commanded seventeen million six hundred and forty thousand spirits". He rules 49 provinces. His planet is Saturn.
    • Bethor, "who commanded twenty-nine thousand legions of spirits". He rules 42 provinces. His planet is Jupiter.
    • Phaleg (or Phalec, Pharos), "the War-Lord". His planet is Mars. He rules 35 provinces.
    • Och, "the alchemist, physician, and magician". He rules 28 provinces. His "planet" is the Sun.
    • Hagith, "transmuter of metals, and commander of four thousand legions of spirits". He rules 21 provinces. His planet is Venus.
    • Ophiel, "who commanded one hundred thousand legions of spirits". He rules 14 provinces. His planet is Mercury.
  • Tuspa Rocket is based on the Istanbul Rocket, an ancient artifact resembling a tiny spaceship discovered in the ruins of Toprakkale (known as "Tuspa" in ancient times).
  • Arcjet Lightcrafter is based on both the arcjet thruster—a form of electrically powered spacecraft propulsion, in which an electrical discharge (arc) is created in a flow of propellant—and Lightcraft—a theoretical space- or air-vehicle driven by beam-powered propulsion, the energy source powering the craft being external.
  • Sento Princess - Roze's name is the syllables of zero backwards (pronounced roh-zeh). This is in reference to Sento Princess - Rei being named after the Japanese word for "zero."
  • Utgarda is named after Utgarda-Loki (lit. "Loki of the Outyards"), a great and devious giant in Norse mythology who could manipulate illusions. "Utgard" is also the name of the stronghold Utgarda-Loki ruled over.
  • Ame-no-Kagu-no-Mikazuchi is based on three Japanese deities: Amenokaku-no-kami (a divine messenger and a god of deer), Kagutsuchi (the kami of fire), and Takemikazuchi (a god of thunder). Its title, Kikoutei ("Mechanismic Hooves"), is also a Japanese homophone for the phrase "radiant emperor," sometimes used to refer to the Sun.
  • Calcragura may be a combination of "calcification," "crag," and "Karura"—a divine creature with human torso and birdlike head in Japanese mythology.
  • Evilcella Lutea is a portmanteau of "evil" and Ibicella lutea—a species of protocarnivorous flowering plant known by the common name yellow unicorn-plant.
  • Uvaloop of Obsessive Love is named after Uvall (+ "loop"), a Great Duke of Hell in demonology who sometimes takes the shape of a camel or a woman. He is known for bringing about love and speaks about past, present, and future.
  • Daruma Otoshi Master is based on the Japanese children's game *Daruma Otoshi, which is played with a five-piece Daruma doll— a hollow, round, Japanese traditional doll modeled after Bodhidharma, the founder of the Zen tradition of Buddhism. Here, the last kanji in the word "Otoshi" has been replaced with the one for "expert"/"master." The game is played by trying to hit away each of the pieces with a toy hammer without letting the others fall.
  • Chune Knight is named after the Japanese onomatopoeia for the sound mice make (chuu) + "tune."
  • Tei-Kyupid combines the Japanese pronunciations of teikyuu (a Japanese term for "tennis") and kyuu (bow) with "Cupid."
  • Crosheep is a portmanteau of "crochet" and "sheep."
  • Kuji-kiri (九字切り lit. "nine symbolic cuts") is a practice of using hand gestures found today in Shugendō and Shingon Mikkyō. It is also present in some old and traditional schools ("ryūha") of Japanese martial arts including but not exclusive to schools that have ties with ninjutsu.
  • Brittle-Edged Sword includes some Japanese wordplay wherein the moro in moroha no tsurugi ("double-edged sword") is replaced with the kanji for "brittle" (also pronounced moro).
  • Resurgam is Latin for "I shall rise again."
  • Chronodiver Retrograde is a reference to the retrograde function of watches: a retrograde display doesn’t indicate anything in a circular fashion (be it the day, the date, the month, etc.), but rather in a semi-circle or arc—and because it doesn’t conform to a circular design, the indicator hand will bounce (or “jump”) back to the beginning when it has finished the sequence.
  • Catch Copy is a reference to catch sales—an unscrupulous sales practice involving expensive hard-to-break contracts.
  • Arms Call's name is meant to sound similar to {Hidden Armory's} Japanese name: Arms Hole.
  • Mutual Offset (Soushi Sousai) sounds similar in Japanese to the phrase for "mutual love" (soushi souai).
