In episode 146, Yami Yugi uses this card during his duel against Gurimo. When Gurimo summons "Warrior Dai Grepher", Yami Yugi activates this card to Tribute "Watapon" and "Warrior Dai Grepher" and Special Summon "Dark Magician" from the Graveyard.
In episode 148, this card appears in Yugi Muto's thoughts when Yami Yugi notes that although Pegasus no longer has the Millennium Eye, he was the chosen one and he was the creator of Duel Monsters.
In episode 180, Yugi uses this card during his duel against Jaden. When "Elemental HERO Shining Flare Wingman" (whose ATK was 4300 due to its own effect) attacks "Dark Magician Girl", Yami Yugi takes over and activates this card to Tribute "Neo-Spacian Grand Mole" and "Dark Magician Girl" and Special Summon a Spellcaster-type monster from his Graveyard. Yami Yugi then activates the effect of the "Code Change" sealed within "Mystical Refpanel" to change the typing on "Dark Renewal" from Spellcaster to Divine-Beast, allowing Yami Yugi to Special Summon "Slifer the Sky Dragon" from his Graveyard. Due to the effect of "Slifer", its ATK and DEF become 5000 due to Yami Yugi having five cards in his hand. A replay occurs and Jaden chooses not to attack with "Shining Flare Wingman".
