• In episode 20, Bronk Stone sets this card during his Duel against Number 96 while the latter was using Yuma Tsukumo's Deck, but did not activate it. After "Number 96: Dark Mist" (whose ATK was 3100 through its own effect) destroys "Number 39: Utopia" (whose ATK was 500 due to the effect of "Dark Mist" being used twice on it) in battle, Number 96 planned to destroy "Gearspring Catapult" as he didn't want Bronk to use it to increase the ATK of any monsters he may summon during his turn, however Yuma, pretending to be possessed by Number 96's power, claimed that Bronk's true aim was this card which will inflict 800 damage to Number 96 for each Gearspring Counter Bronk has once "Gearspring Catapult" and "Automatic Gearspring Machine" gain Gearspring Counters and the damage will total to 3200 as Bronk will have four Gearspring Counters during his own turn. In response, Number 96 activates "Xyz Cyclone" to destroy this card (Yuma purposely deceives Number 96 to do this by Astral's instructions as it was the only way for Bronk to have a chance to win the Duel).
