This card then attacks and destroys "Garoozis". Later Bonz summons "Pumpking the King of Ghosts" and uses its effect to power up his other Zombie-type monsters. Bonz would use the same effect again over the next four turns until "Red-Eyes B. Dragon" attacks and destroys "Pumpking". Later Joey activates "Shield & Sword" to swap the ATK and DEF of all monsters on the field, including this card, resulting in this card and Bonz's other two Zombies now having 0 ATK. This card remained on the field until the Duel was over.
