The name "Nelgel" is a possible bastardization of Nergal, the name of a deity often portrayed as demon working closely with Satan. This is rather fitting, given how Hades Nelgel's actions were completely by order of his leader, Madesagora.


  • Although numerous romanizations of ネルゲル can be found across the Internet, the romanization "Nelgel" appears to be the most agreed upon among fans.
  • Hades Nelgel's appearance and overall demeanor is reminiscent to that of Orgodemir, and bears a strong resemblance to Whis from Dragon Ball Z.
