- The episode title is a reference to Cloud Atlas.

- Yami tells Kaiba to "stop activating the race card". To play the race card means to divert a conflict from its original point by turning it into a race issue, which is what Kaiba is doing, by pointing out the characters' "wrong" races in the flashback, and so dismissing its intended message. The use of the word "activate" is a play on the activation of various Duel Monsters cards by Yami and Kaiba in an earlier scene.
