In episode 126, Yami Marik uses this card during his Duel against Joey Wheeler. He Special Summons this card to Joey's side of the field by Tributing Joey's "Jinzo" and "Baby Dragon". In the next episode, this card attacks directly, but Marik activates "Relieve Monster" to return "Plasma Eel" to his hand and Special Summon it in Defense Position. "Plasma Eel" then intercepts the attack, but it's not destroyed due to its own effect. During Joey's End Phase, this card's effect activates, inflicting 700 damage to Joey. Yami Marik then activates "Machine Duplication" to Special Summon two more "Plasma Eels". They then equipped themselves onto this card and "Rocket Warrior" respectively. After Joey activates "Graceful Dice" to roll a die and he gets a six, "Graceful Dice" multiplies the ATK of "Plasma Eel" by the result, making its ATK 3000. This causes "Machine Duplication" and the equipped "Plasma Eels" to be destroyed since "Plasma Eel" now had more than 500 ATK. Joey then Tributes this card, "Panther Warrior", and "Rocket Warrior" in order to Tribute Summon "Gilford the Lightning".
In episode 135, this card is seen in a flashback Yugi Muto has when he remembers Joey's Duel against Yami Marik.
In the original, this card's attack name is Golem Volcano, but Jonouchi decides to rename it to Jonouchi Fire.
