Trivia

  • The book The Embodiment of Destruction, Glas Ghaibhleann explains that the creature must be summoned with a skeleton of its own bones (which, paradoxically, come from another world). If all of the bones cannot be collected to reform its skeleton, artificial bones can be created with Adamantium (a metal that nullifies all magic used against it).
    • Glas Ghaibhleann is not immune to magic, both because not all of its bones are made of Adamantium and because a special sample of ancient magic is used to nullify some of the Adamantium's power.
      • It does possess Mana Deflector of the lowest rank, perhaps due to the partial protection it provides.
    • G1img17.png Adamantium, Adamantine, or Adamant is a famous fictional metal. The word is found in many languages (Greek: ἀδάμας, meaning indomitable; Latin: adamās, meaning inflexible; English: adamant, meaning unyielding; etc.). It is strongly associated with Diamonds and steel; it is sometimes associated with gold and lodestones.
  • Glas Ghaibhleann is the name of an Irish mythological cow which was famous for its ability to produce endless milk.
    • Glas is a Modern Irish word for the color green, though because of the historical difficulty in distinguishing between blue and green the word could mean green, blue, or gray.
    • Ghaibhleann's meaning is uncertain. Ghai could be the word gamhain (meaning calf). Bhleann could be the word baineann (meaning feminine). Other translations suggest ghaibhleann means of the smith, often specifying some named smith.
    • G9's battle against Glas Ghaibhleann has Glas summon a group of Crag Cow, perhaps alluding to Glas' bovine nature.
  • Generation 1's Glas Ghaibhleann is missing part of one wing. Generation 9's Glas Ghaibhleann has both wings intact.
    • It is possible that G1's Glas Ghailbhleann's damaged wing is caused by Mores' efforts to undermine the summoning after he realized "Morrighan" was an imposter.
    • G9's Glas Ghailbhleann is not a real, summoned Glas Ghaibhleann (according to Leymore there was no associated spirit effect).
      • Additionally, the Glas Ghailbhleann does not explode on death. While G1's explodes violently and damages the fabric of reality, G9's simply vanishes.
  • Despite having a death animation as shown in cutscenes, Generation 9's Glas Ghaibhleann appears standing up-right and frozen in place when killed outside of the cutscene. It's possible that both G1 and G9's Glas Ghaibhleann's death animation was never created.
    • The Transformation Diary version of Glas Ghaibhleann's size is shorter than the boss version. Skills are limited to only Defense, Counterattack, and Windmill. Unfortunately the transformation will cancel upon being hit. The reason might be because the boss has no knockdown motion.
