In the anime, this card could only use its effect once per turn and could not attack the same turn its effect was used.
In episode 21, Greiger uses this card during his Turbo Duel against Yusei Fudo. He Synchro Summons this card by tuning "Trap Reactor・Y FI" with "Black Salvo". This card then attacks directly, but Yusei activates "Synchro Spirits" to banish "Junk Warrior" from his Graveyard and revive "Junk Synchron" and "Speed Warrior". A replay then occurs and Greiger uses this card to attack "Junk Synchron", but Yusei banishes "Shield Warrior" from his Graveyard to prevent his monsters from being destroyed by battle this turn.. On Greiger's End Phase, he activates "Ultimate Flare" to Special Summon an Ultimate Flare Token to the field. Greiger had the intention of activating this card's effect during his next turn in order to Tribute the token and inflict damage to Yusei equal to the token's Level times 200 (the damage inflicted would equal 2000 since the token is Level 10). On the last turn of the Duel, "Junk Warrior" (whose ATK was 3300 due to it being equipped with "Armory Arm") attacks and destroys this card. The final effect of "Armory Arm" then inflicts damage to Greiger equal to this card's ATK, winning Yusei the Duel.
