Notes

  • Animal Theme: Monkey
  • Possible Prehistoric Basis: Gigantopithecus
    • Zarudan also draws inspiration from Sun Wukong (AKA: The Monkey King) from the 16th century Chinese classical novel Journey to the West  due to his primary weapon being a Bo Staff and has the ability to generate and ride on a cloud (Due to the "Smoke muddles his eyes/La fumée l'embrouille les yeux" piece from the Lupin Collection) .
    • Zarudan's design may have also incorporated elements of a mandrill and a baboon.
    • Zarudan's appearance is somewhat similar to Hihi from Juken Sentai Gekiranger.
      • Zarudan's similarities with Hihi is also that both appeared in a New Ranger Episode.
  • Zarudan is the first standard Gangler Monster without a human form to use two different Lupin Collection pieces at the same time.
    • By extension, he is also the first standard Gangler Monster to have a pair of Gangler Safes on his body (fitting his position as a Status Double).
