EtymologyEdit

The Japanese name for this enemy is the English phrase "Ring Commander", as the enemy commands a ring. The English localization uses the synonym "leader" in place of "commander". A ringleader is the leader of a group causing a disturbance, and also another name for a ringmaster in a circus.

In French it is named SdA, probably in reference to the book The Lord of the Rings (Seigneur des Anneaux).
