The anime version of this card was not a Continuous Spell Card but a Field Spell Card, though its effect could be used multiple times during the turn in which it was activated. Also, in the anime version, this card supposedly drains the very souls of the card holder's monsters, creating a form of energy known as Ectoplasm, which is fired directly at the card holder's opponent. Yami Yugi finds this card's effect to be particularly cruel and horrible, as it sacrifices one's monsters, and derides Arkana for doing so in a callous manner.
In episode 61, Arkana uses this card during his Duel against Yami Yugi. He activates this card as part of his plan to defeat Yami Yugi. Arkana activates this card's effect to select "Fiend" and Tribute "Doll of Demise" in order to inflict damage to Yami Yugi equal to half the ATK of "Doll of Demise". Arkana then activates this card's effect to select "Spellcaster" and Tribute his "Dark Magician" in order to inflict half its ATK as damage to Yami Yugi, but Yami Yugi's "Dark Magician" is Tributed as well, causing the damage to be nullified. In the next episode, this card remained on the field until the Duel was over.
In episode 79, Yami Bakura uses this card during his Duel against Bonz. He activates this card as part of his winning move. Yami Bakura activates this card's effect to select "Fiend" and Tribute "The Earl of Demise" in order to inflict damage to Bonz equal to half the ATK of "The Earl of Demise", which wins Yami Bakura the Duel. After he won, Yami Bakura took Bonz's five Locator Cards as per the Battle City Rules.
