In the dub, this card's Summon chant was: Elements of Thunder, Water and Wind. Suijin, Sanga, Kazejin begin. Meld your powers in eternal light. Show these fools your unstoppable might. He is pain beyond description. He'll mark the graves with your inscription. Gate Guardian!
In episode 20, the Paradox Brothers use this card during their Tag Duel against Yami Yugi and Joey Wheeler. It was treated as being three monsters and could negate attacks based on the "pieces" remaining. In the next episode, the top portion ("Sanga of the Thunder") attacks Joey's "Flame Swordsman", but Yugi activates "Mirror Force" to deflect the attack back at this card. Dox uses the effect of "Kazejin" to reduce the damage to zero and protect "Gate Guardian". "Monster Tamer" is still destroyed. Joey then uses his "Salamandra"-equipped "Flame Swordsman" to attack the middle section ("Kazejin"), but "Suijin" used its effect to reduce the damage done to zero and protect "Gate Guardian". The bottom portion (Suijin") attacks on the next turn. Due to the weakness that "Flame Swordsman" has to water, it loses 300 ATK. The attack then destroys "Flame Swordsman". Yugi then uses the water flooded into the maze to his advantage by using "Summoned Skull" to attack "Suijin". Yugi then activates "Spellbinding Circle" to immobilize "Gate Guardian", decrease the portions' ATK by 700 and, prevent their effects from activating. The "Suijin" portion is then destroyed. Para then activates "Remove Trap" to destroy "Spellbinding Circle". Yugi then activates "Polymerization" to fuse "Summoned Skull" with Joey's "Red-Eyes Black Dragon" and Fusion Summon "Black Skull Dragon". Dox then activates "Riryoku" to halve both Yugi and Joey's Life Points and increase the ATK of "Gate Guardian" by the amount Yugi and Joey lost. Yami Yugi then activates "Monster Reborn" to revive "Suijin" under his control. This card then attacks "Dark Magician", but Yugi uses the effect of "Suijin" to negate the attack. Joey then activates "Copycat" to activate the effect of "Riryoku" which halves both Para and Dox's Life Points and increases the ATK of "Black Skull Dragon" by the amount the brothers lost. "Kazejin" then attacks "Suijin", but Yami Yugi uses the latter's effect to negate the attack. "Sanga" then attacks and destroys "Suijin". Later Yami Yugi activates "Monster Replace" to swap the positions of his "Dark Magician" and "Black Skull Dragon". "Black Skull Dragon" then attacks and destroys the remainder of this card, winning Yami Yugi and Joey the Duel.
In episode 44, Yugi's group encountered this monster in the Virtual Game they were in. This time, it apparently counted as a single monster. Yugi then activates "Polymerization" to fuse his "Summoned Skull" with "Red-Eyes Black Dragon" and Fusion Summon "Black Skull Dragon". Joey then equips "Black Skull Dragon" with "Dragon Nails", increasing its ATK by 700. "Black Skull Dragon" then attacks and destroys this monster.
In episode 179, this card is shown in a flashback Alexis has when she explains to her classmates that three years ago all graduating classmates knocked on the door of Duel Academy with their own hopes and dreams and it was here that the students met many friends and teachers and learned numerous things through Duels.
