In episode 73, Sartorius uses this card during his Duel against Tyranno Hassleberry. After this card is summoned, it rotates. It lands upright, so this card's original ATK will be doubled until the End Phase if a Spell is activated. After Sartorius activates "Future Vision", this card's original ATK is doubled. This card then attacks and destroys "Giant Rex". On Sartorius' End Phase, this card's ATK decreases to its original value. After Hassleberry activates "New Ultra Evolution", this card's original ATK is doubled. "Dark Tyranno" then attacks and destroys this card.
The symbolic meaning in the anime was that Tyranno was talented or skilled and had the ability to get things done.
In episode 104, Sartorius uses this card during his Duel against Jaden Yuki. After this card is summoned, it begins to rotate. It lands upright, so this card's original ATK will be doubled until the End Phase if a Spell is activated. This card then attacks directly. After Jaden activates "Hero Flash!!" to Special Summon "Elemental HERO Neos" from his Deck, this card's ATK is doubled due to its own effect. Sartorius confidently assumed that Jaden was going to use "Neos" to attack this card (which would only inflict 300 points of Battle Damage to him), but Jaden states that due to the last effect of "Hero Flash!!", "Neos" can attack directly this turn. "Neos" then attacks directly. On Sartorius's next turn, he Tributes this card in order to activate "Magician's Scales".
In episode 171, during Jaden's duel against Sartorius, Sartorius was forced to send this card from the top of his Deck to the Graveyard via the effect of "Sowing of the Fool".
