Later Weevil Tributes all the Army Ant Tokens he created through the effect of "Multiplication of Ants" in order to allow this card to attack. This card then attacks "Gearfried the Iron Knight", but Joey activates "Graverobber" to take Weevil's "Eradicating Aerosol" from the Graveyard and activate its effect, destroying.

This card's ATK increases to 3300 due to another Insect-type monster now being on the field.
