  • In Kaiba's first appearance in the first series anime, he is shown stealing this card from a student at another school before transferring to Domino High. However, it was named "Dark Wizard" (ダーク・ウィザード Dāku Wizādo) and it had 2000 ATK and 1800 DEF.

Pre-Duelist Kingdom

  • In episode 2, Yugi uses this card during his Duel against Maximillion Pegasus. He Summons it without looking at it first in an effort to counter the Millennium Eye. Pegasus activates "Sun Shower" in response, but since this card wasn't a Zombie-type monster, nothing happens. This card then attacks and destroys "Koumori Dragon" (who Pegasus had taken control of via "Dragon Piper's" effect). Pegasus then attacks this card with "Illusionist Faceless Mage" (who was equipped with "Eye of Illusion"). Due to the effect of "Eye of Illusion", "Illusionist Faceless Mage" is not destroyed and Pegasus takes no damage. On Yugi's turn, "Eye of Illusion" switched control of this card to Pegasus. Yugi's "Celtic Guardian" then attacks "Illusionist Faceless Mage", but the second effect of "Eye of Illusion" redirects the attack to this card. This card then destroys "Celtic Guardian". This card remained on the field until the Duel was over.

Duelist Kingdom

  • In episode 9, Yugi uses this card during his Duel against Ghost Kaiba. After summoning this card, Yugi uses this card to attack and destroy "Hitotsu-Me Giant". After Ghost Kaiba summons "Blue-Eyes White Dragon", Yugi switches this card into Defense Position and summons "Curse of Dragon" in Defense Position, but Ghost Kaiba activates "Defense Paralysis" to switch both this card and "Curse of Dragon" to Attack Position. "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" then attacks and destroys "Curse of Dragon". Yugi then activates "Magical Hats" to hide this card within one of four hats. "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" then attacks a hat. In the next episode, the hat is revealed to be empty. On Ghost Kaiba's next turn, he uses "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" to attack another hat, but that one is revealed to contain "Spellbinding Circle" which decreases the ATK of "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" by 700. Yugi then releases this card from the hat it was hiding in. This card then attacks and destroys "Blue-Eyes White Dragon". Ghost Kaiba then summons a second "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" and uses it to attack and destroy this card.
    • In the first above-mentioned episode, Kaiba decides to find out which Dueling platform Yugi is on via computer. He decides to use this card as a cross reference as Yugi would most likely use this card if he is in a Duel. After crashing a satellite, he starts searching around the Dueling arenas for "Dark Magician", but finds none. The last active one is arena 146. Kaiba tries to enter, but finds himself unable to. Kaiba deduces it's a virus that will prevent him from searching. He then uses virtual TNT to blow up the door, however he finds a virtual castle which is the last defense that Kaiba has to go past. Kaiba confidently says "Alcatraz" ("Pegasus" in the dub). The password is correct and Kaiba enters. In the next episode, Kaiba goes inside and he finds out that an impostor of himself is dueling Yugi. The computer then explains how Yugi defeated the first "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" and this card is shown during the explanation.
  • In episode 12, Yugi Muto and his friends were showing to each other what their favorite card was. Yugi showed this card and states it's his favorite. Yami Bakura would later seal Yugi's soul within this card.
  • In episode 13, Yami Yugi uses this card during his Duel against Yami Bakura. It appears as Yugi himself dressed as the "Dark Magician" and he is able to communicate with his other half through it. He then attacks and destroys Bakura's "Morphing Jar", but that activates the latter's effect, forcing both players to discard their entire hand and draw five new cards. On Yami Yugi's next turn, Joey, who was "Flame Swordsman", accidentally provokes Yugi. This is enough for Yugi to attack and destroy Yami Bakura's set monster, but the set monster is revealed to be "Electric Lizard", whose effect prevents Yugi from attacking on Yami Yugi's next turn. Later Yami Bakura activates "Change of Heart" to take control of Yugi, so he could win the duel, but as Bakura Ryou's soul was trapped within the card, he chose to take control "Lady of Faith" instead, saving Yami from losing the duel. Bakura tells Yugi to attack, but Yugi doesn't want to hurt his friend. The argument continues until Yami Yugi uses his magic to make Bakura and Yami Bakura swap places. This makes Bakura Yami Yugi's opponent and Yami Bakura "Lady of Faith". Yugi then attacks and destroys Yami Bakura, winning Yami Yugi the Duel and sparing Bakura from being sent to the Graveyard.
    • This card also appeared in Yami Bakura's thoughts when he explained that he was going to use "Change of Heart" to take control of this card and use it to attack and destroy one of Yami Yugi's monsters and win the Duel.
  • In episode 20, Yugi uses this card during his Tag Duel with Joey Wheeler against the Paradox Brothers. After Yugi summons this card, he moves this monster 5 spaces, so that way it is in front of "Celtic Guardian", "Axe Raider", and "Flame Swordsman". Para then activates "Magical Labyrinth" to cut off Yugi and Joey's monsters from each other. Yugi later activates "Mystic Box" to destroy Dox's "Jirai Gumo" and get this card to where "Jirai Gumo" previously was. Yugi then uses this monster to attack and destroy Dox's "Labyrinth Tank". Yugi then activates "Magical Hats" to hide this card and Joey's "Flame Swordsman" from "Dungeon Worm". In the next episode, the hats protect this card from "Suijin's" attack when the said attack floods the entire maze. Later on, Yugi releases this card from the hat it was hiding in and moves it forward towards the end of the maze where "Gate Guardian" was. He then activates "Monster Reborn" to Summon Dox's "Suijin" under his control. When "Sanga of the Thunder" attacks this card, Yugi uses the effect of "Suijin" to negate the attack. Later "Kazejin" attacks "Suijin", but Yugi uses its effect to negate the attack. "Sanga of the Thunder" then attacks and destroys "Suijin" since the latter's effect can only be used once per turn. Yugi then activates "Monster Replace" to swap the positions of this card and "Black Skull Dragon". "Black Skull Dragon" then attacks and destroys "Gate Guardian", winning Yugi and Joey the Duel.
  • In episode 22, Yugi uses this card during his Duel against Kaiba. When Kaiba uses "Swordstalker" to attack "Curse of Dragon", Yugi activates "Monster Replace" to return "Curse of Dragon" to his hand and Special Summon this card in its place. A replay occurs and Kaiba chooses not to attack. This card then destroys Kaiba's "Swordstalker". On Yugi's next turn, this card attacks Kaiba's "La Jinn the Mystical Genie of the Lamp", but Kaiba activates "Ancient Lamp" to redirect the attack to "Curse of Dragon", destroying it. In the next episode, Yugi uses "Mystic Box" to destroy "Ancient Lamp". This card then attacks and destroys "La Jinn". On Yugi's next turn, he recalls this card back to his hand and summons "Gaia The Fierce Knight". "Gaia" then attacks and destroys "Saggi the Dark Clown", but this allows Kaiba to activate "Crush Card Virus" which destroys "Gaia" and this card, and renders every monster that has at least 1500 ATK in Yugi's Deck useless.
    • In the first above-mentioned episode, this card appears in a flashback Téa Gardner has when she remembers when Yugi rescued her. Yami Yugi challenged a thug who had knocked out Téa to a challenge, utilizing his Deck. He claimed that the person who drew the strongest monster wins. The thug drew "Curse of Dragon" and confidently claimed that this monster's ATK is really high. Yami draws from the Deck and gets this card, so Yami wins. The thug, angrily charges forward, but Yami gives the thug a Mind Crush, knocking the thug out. This card also appeared in a flashback Téa has when she remembers Yami Yugi's Duel with Yami Bakura and notes to herself that there maybe two Yugis.

"Black Skull Dragon" attacks a hat, but it turns out to be empty. Joey summons "Garoozis" in an attempt to get Yugi to this card out, but Yugi doesn't fall for it. "Black Skull Dragon" attacks another Hat, but that turns out to be empty too. On Joey's next turn, "Black Skull Dragon" destroys a hat, but it's revealed to contain "Spellbinding Circle" which paralyzes "Black Skull Dragon" and decreases its ATK by 700. Yugi then releases this card from the hat it was under and equips this card with "Book of Secret Arts", which increases this card's ATK and DEF by 300. This card then attacks and destroys "Black Skull Dragon". Later this card attacks "Baby Dragon", but Joey activates "Kunai with Chain" to stop the attack and immobilize this card. Later Joey activates "Time Wizard's" effect. Joey succeeds in the gamble, so the effect of "Time Wizard" transforms "Baby Dragon" into "Thousand Dragon", but this also transforms this card into "Dark Sage".
  • In episode 35, this card can be seen when Yugi looks through his Deck before his duel with Pegasus begins.
    • This card also appears in Yugi's thoughts when he notes it will take all the wisdom his grandfather taught him and all the power in his cards to defeat Pegasus.

Pegasus then tries to read Yugi's mind to find this card's location, but Yugi and Yami Yugi switch minds to prevent this from happening. "Toon Summoned Skull" then attacks a hat, but it turns out to be empty. On Pegasus's next turn, "Toon Summoned Skull" attacks another hat, but that hat turns out to be empty too. Later Pegasus activates "Magical Neutralizing Force" to get rid of the other hats and expose this card. Pegasus then uses "Toon Summoned Skull" to attack this card, but Yugi activates "Living Arrow" to activate the effect of "Magical Neutralizing Force" and destroy "Toon World". Yugi then activates "Mirror Force" to deflect the attack right back at Pegasus's unToonified monsters, destroying them and inflicting damage to Pegasus equal to the ATK difference between "Toon Summoned Skull" and the destroyed monsters. In the following episode, Yugi uses this card to attack Pegasus' "Relinquished", but Pegasus destroys the "Curse of Dragon" equipped onto "Relinquished" to prevent "Relinquished" from being destroyed. Due to the last effect of "Relinquished", Yami Yugi takes the Battle Damage that Pegasus would have taken. Pegasus then activates the effect of "Relinquished" to equip this card onto it and make its ATK and DEF the same as this card's. In the next episode, Yami Yugi activates "Mystic Box" to make this card and "Jigen Bakudan" switch places. This frees this monster from "Relinquished" and makes "Jigen Bakudan" the Equip Card on "Relinquished" instead. On Yami Yugi's next turn, he activates "Brain Control" to take control of Pegasus's "Relinquished" until the End Phase. Yugi then activates "Dark Magic Ritual" to Tributes this card and "Jigen Bakudan" in order to Ritual Summon "Magician of Black Chaos".
  • In episode 40, this card guards the mind of Yami Yugi from Shadi. When this monster tries to attack Yugi and Shadi due to them intruding, Shadi tries to summon the "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" and use it to destroy this monster, however Regular Yugi convinces Shadi to stand down. Thanks to Yugi's convincing, this card stopped his attack and withdrew back his staff. Shadi was surprised that this card was able to obey Yugi and this made him realize that he must be the one.

Post-Duelist Kingdom

"Shadow Ghoul" (whose ATK was 2700 due to its own effect) then attacks and destroys this card. Later Yugi activates "Monster Reborn" to revive this card. On Yugi's next turn, this card attacks and destroys Rebecca's "Cannon Soldier". This causes the ATK of "Shadow Ghoul" to increase to 2800. Yugi could have won the duel if he had activated "Soul Release" to banish five of Rebecca's monsters and decrease the ATK of "Shadow Ghoul" by 500 which would allow this card to attack and destroy it, however Yugi surrendered the duel because he wanted to show Rebecca there is more to a duel than winning.

Johnny wondered why the effect of "Metalmorph" didn't activate. Yami Yugi explains that was because he attacked, not Johnny, therefore the effect of "Metalmorph" didn't increase the ATK of "Heavy Metal King" when it battled this card. Upon finding out who Yugi is, Johnny surrenders as he realized that he couldn't beat Yugi if he had defeated Pegasus.
    • This card also appears on a poster that Yugi and Téa Gardner read when they find a game store that was selling Duel Monster cards.

The two of them then proceeded in destroying the zombies and blasting their attacks at Zorc. Despite all the attacks that Yugi and his friends and allies threw at Zorc, he remained unharmed by the attacks. Zorc then destroys Tristan's "Super Roboyarou", Joey's "Red-Eyes B. Dragon", and Téa's "Fire Sorcerer", causing Yugi's friends to take damage equal to the original ATK of their respective destroyed monsters. Zorc then destroys this monster and "Dark Magician Girl", causing Yugi to take damage equal to the original ATK of this card as well as causing Mana to suffer damage herself since her ka was destroyed.
  • In episode 223, Yami Yugi uses this card during his Duel against Yugi. He Summons this card through the effect of "Dark Magic Curtain".

In the next episode, Yami Yugi activates "Thousand Knives" to destroy Yugi's set "Marshmallon". This card then attacks and destroys Yugi's "Curse of Dragon". On Yami Yugi's next turn, he equips this card with "Dark Spear", which grants this card the ability to inflict Piercing Damage. This card then attacks "Blockman", but Yugi activates "Soul Shield" to prevent "Blockman" from being destroyed and reduce the Battle Damage from the attack to 0. After that, "Soul Shield" ends the Battle Phase. On Yugi's next turn, he Tribute Summons "Gandora the Dragon of Destruction" and activates its effect to destroy and banish this card, but Yami Yugi activates "Dark Illusion" to make this card immune to Effect Monster effects this turn and allow Yugi to draw one card. This card then attacks directly, but Yugi activates "Magician's Circle" to allow both players to Special Summon a Spellcaster-type monster. Yugi chooses to Special Summon "Silent Magician LV0" while Yami chooses to Special Summon "Dark Magician Girl". A replay then occurs and Yami Yugi uses this card to attack "Silent Magician LV0", but Yugi activates "Spell Textbook" to discard his entire hand and draw one card. The card is then revealed to be "Card of Sanctity". Because of that, Yugi activates the effect of "Card of Sanctity" immediately, forcing both players to draw until they had six cards. Since Yami drew five new cards, "Silent Magician LV0" gained 2500 ATK. Yami Yugi then activates "Magicians Unite" to make the ATK of this card 3000 for this attack. "Silent Magician LV0" then destroys this card. Due to the effect of "Magicians Unite", "Dark Magician Girl" is destroyed.

Yu-Gi-Oh! 3D Bonds Beyond Time

  • Yugi uses this card during his Duel with Jaden Yuki and Yusei Fudo against Paradox. He adds this card from his Deck to his hand via the effect of Yusei's "Reincarnation of Hope". Yugi then activates "Ancient Rules" to Special Summon this card from his hand. Yugi then activates "Bond Between Teacher and Student" to Special Summon "Dark Magician Girl" from his Deck. Due to the second effect of "Malefic Paradox Dragon", both this card and "Dark Magician Girl" lose ATK equal to the ATK of "Stardust Dragon". Yugi then activates "Magic Gate of Miracles" to take control of one monster Paradox controls. Thinking Yugi is trying to take control of "Malefic Paradox Dragon", Paradox activates "Malefic Force" to equip the latter to "Malefic Paradox Dragon" and grant it immunity to Spell Cards controlled by Paradox's opponents. However Yugi uses "Magic Gate of Miracles" to take control of "Stardust Dragon". Since "Stardust Dragon" is no longer controlled by Paradox, the ATK of this card, "Neos Knight", and "Dark Magician Girl" revert to their original value. Yugi then activates "Dark Magic Twin Burst" to increase this card's ATK by the ATK of "Dark Magician Girl" until the End Phase. This card then attacks and destroys "Malefic Paradox Dragon". Paradox then activates "Malefic Paradigm Shift" in order to Special Summon "Malefic Truth Dragon". On Yami Yugi's End Phase, the effect of "Dark Magic Twin Burst" expires. Later "Malefic Blue-Eyes White Dragon" attacks and destroys this card. This activates the second effect of "Malefic Truth Dragon" (which would destroy all monsters Yugi, Jaden, and Yusei controls and inflict 800 damage to them for each monster destroyed this way), but Yusei Tributes "Stardust Dragon" to negate the effect of "Malefic Truth Dragon" and destroy it. Paradox then activates the second effect of "Malefic Truth Dragon" to banish "Malefic Rainbow Dragon" from his Graveyard and prevent "Malefic Truth Dragon" from being destroyed. After "Stardust Dragon" revives itself during the End Phase via its own effect. Yusei activates "Stardust Mirage" to revive all monsters destroyed this turn (including this card). This card remained on the field until the Duel was over.
