Trivia

Interestingly, the term 'Manta' in the item's name is a reference to the Manta Ray, a species of ray fish known for its graceful and agile swimming movements underwater. This analogy reflects the item's nature of providing agility and swiftness to heroes, much like the Manta Ray's elegance and speed in the sea.
