Trivia

  • If Ereshkigal is modified into the game and used against the dragon, parts of the spell animation will visually glitch up, as will the body of the dragon and the flame background. This may be the result of layer conflicts with the more complex combat background used by the dragon.
  • Ereshkigal is unusual in that it completely lacks a weapon rank. This means that if the game is modified to give the player's army a copy, any and every unit in the game is able to use it without further modification and will gain dark weapon experience from it, which will give them an E rank in dark magic.
