  • The animation for Grima's Truth resembles that of the Book of Naga's animation from Fire Emblem Awakening in terms of appearance. 
  • Interestingly in Awakening, if one were to datamine the game, they could see that all of the Dark Magic Tomes seen in a shelf in an Armory's background use the model for Grima's Truth. The reason for this is unknown. 
  • In the Double Duel "Henry's Spellslingers", Henry wields Grima's Truth, despite the tome being an unobtainable weapon.
    • This also proves that the tome is not exclusive to Validar in gameplay.
    • In addition in Fire Emblem Heroes, Male Morgan is able to use Grima's Truth.
  • In the opening animation of Fire Emblem Awakening, Validar's attacks using Grima's Truth were from creating a large sphere of purple energy that emits electricity. 
    • This appears similar to the attack Robin used to kill Grima at the end of the final chapter in Awakening.
