- In episode 111, the Big Five use this card during their Tag Duel against Yami Yugi and Joey Wheeler. Gansley activates this card during the first turn of the Duel. He then uses this card's effect to let him Normal Summon "The Legendary Fisherman" without Tribute. Later Crump uses this card's effect to Normal Summon "Catapult Turtle" without Tribute. This card's effect then boosted the ATK and DEF of "Catapult Turtle" by 200. Later Joey activates "Harpie's Feather Duster" to destroy this card. This removes the boost "Catapult Turtle" got from this card. After Joey uses "Alligator's Sword" to attack and destroy "Magician of Faith", Crump activates the latter's Flip Effect to add this card from his Graveyard to his hand. Later Yugi activates "Card Destruction" to force the Big Five to discard this card.
- In episode 38, Admiral uses this card during his Duel against Jaden Yuki. After this card is activated, Admiral uses this card's effect to Normal Summon "Orca Mega-Fortress of Darkness" without Tribute. On Admiral's next turn, he activates "Cursed Waters Level 3", which allows the Admiral to Normal Summon "Torpedo Fish" and "Cannonball Spear Shellfish" on the same turn due to their Levels adding up to 3 after this card's effect was applied to them. Later the Admiral uses this card's effect to Tribute Summon "Levia-Dragon - Daedalus" by Tributing "Orca Mega-Fortress of Darkness". Admiral then sends this card to the Graveyard in order to activate the effect of "Levia-Dragon - Daedalus", destroying all other cards on the field and all cards in Jaden's hand. Before the effect of "Daedalus" resolves, Jaden activates "Emergency Provisions" to send his set "Insurance" to the Graveyard and gain 1000 Life Points.
