  • Gladiia is the first 6★ welfare Operator.
  • Her name is a reference to the species name of the swordfish (Xiphias gladius), which she has the traits of.
    • Similar to Thorns, Gladiia is one of the few Operators whose animals they are based on are notably absent in their Elite 2 artworks, though her hat is styled after swordfish's bills and fins, and her outfit's color scheme is similar to that of swordfish.
    • Her name/title by the Seaborn, Gla-dia, means "dejected spirit" in Sanskrit.
  • Along with Sora, Pudding, and Ethan, Gladiia is the only Operator who is not deployed into the map by being airdropped – she instead appears to gracefully slide into position.
  • Along with Akafuyu, Skadi the Corrupting Heart, and Ulpianus, Gladiia's skills have the longest names of all Operator skills.
  • Gladiia's outfit somewhat resembles that of Lady Maria in Bloodborne.
  • The whirlpool/maelstrom created by Gladiia's third skill is often compared with a washing machine or a flushing toilet, thus turning into a joke within the community.
