  • In the Japanese Anime, Orochi's beast is seen with 8 snake heads, one with a pirate hat, 6 looking menacingly, and one appearing as the ship. In the English dub, Orochi's beast is seen with only one snake dressed as a pirate wielding snake-like weapons. It is due to the fact that the English dub used the original planning for the beast.
  • Pirate Orochi 145D was released in Japan on the same day as the Zero-G Random Booster Vol. 1 Thief Phoenix E230GCF.
  • Originally, the English Beyblade community thought it's Japanese name was spelled "Pirates Oroja".
  • It is one of the many Beyblades to utilize the "145D" combination, the others include Grand Capricorne 145D, Leone 145D, Aries 145D, Counter Scorpio 145D and Vulcan Horuseus 145D.

Origin

Pirates Orochi is based on the mythical creature, Yamata no Orochi. Yamata no Orochi (八岐の大蛇), or simply Orochi, was a Japanese dragon told in Izumo mythology of the Shinto religion, which was slain by Susanoo, the Shinto God of the Sea and Storm. Orochi had 8 heads and 8 tails and as such Yamata no Orochi literally meant "8-branched giant snake". Pirate Orochi references Yamata no Orochi by its motif, the eight snake-heads on the Orochi Warrior Wheel, as well as the large, Orochi face on the Warrior Wheel.

Name origin

Pirate refers to the infamous bandits that commit piracy. As of which, is the act of robbery or criminal violence at sea. The name is fitting with Orochi and the Bey's owner, Eight Unabara because Susanoo was the God of Sea, who slayed Orochi, and Eight has an elemental likening to water; while Unabara (海原) is Japanese for the "sea".
