In episode 144, Aster Phoenix uses this card during his duel against Adrian Gecko. After figuring out that Adrian was planning to get the five pieces of "Exodia" into his hand, Aster activates this card to prevent Adrian from getting all five pieces into his hand. Since Adrian had five cards in his hand when this card was activated, he had to send "Ritual of the Ultimate Forbidden Lord" from his hand to the Graveyard. After Adrian drew "Exodia the Forbidden One", he was forced to send that card to the Graveyard, though it did not matter to Adrian since he decided to use an alternate winning strategy. In the next episode, this card remained on the field until the duel was over.
