Yu-Gi-Oh!

Anime

  • In the anime, when this card's effect activates, four hats appear and place themselves on the controllers' monsters. The hats then randomly shuffle themselves to hide the monster(s) and prevent the opponent from knowing which monsters are where without attacking.

Duelist Kingdom

  • In episode 9, Yami Yugi uses this card in his Duel against Ghost Kaiba (who was disguised as Kaiba at the moment). He uses this card to create four hats and hide his "Dark Magician" from "Blue-Eyes White Dragon". "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" then attacks a hat. In the next episode, the attack destroys the hat, but it turns out to be empty. Next turn, "Blue-Eyes" attacks and destroys another "Hat", but this activates "Spellbinding Circle" which holds down "Blue-Eyes" and decreases its ATK by 700. Yugi then releases his "Dark Magician" out of the hat it was hiding in. "Dark Magician" then attacks and destroys "Blue-Eyes White Dragon".
    • In the second above-mentioned episode, this card appears on Kaiba's computer as soon as he and the computer get inside arena 146 and find out that Yugi is dueling Ghost Kaiba who is using Kaiba's Deck. This card also appears in the computer's explanation when it explains how Yugi defeated the first copy of "Blue-Eyes White Dragon".
  • In episode 20, Yugi uses this card during his Tag Duel with Joey Wheeler against the Paradox Brothers. He uses this card to create four "Hats" and hide his "Dark Magician" and Joey's "Flame Swordsman". "Dungeon Worm"(who was powered up by "Invigoration" and the effect of "Monster Tamer") then attacks a hat, but it turns out to be empty. Joey then releases his "Flame Swordsman" out of the "Hat" it was hiding in. Joey then equipped his monster with "Salamandra", increasing its ATK by 700. "Flame Swordsman then attacks "Dungeon Worm" and because the latter is weak against fire, it loses the boost it got from "Monster Tamer", making its ATK 2200. "Flame Swordsman" then destroys "Dungeon Worm". In the next episode, "Gate Guardian's" bottom section attacks and floods the maze. This card was able to protect "Dark Magician" as he was still inside a "Hat" during the attack, however "Flame Swordsman" is destroyed because it was weak against water(this caused its ATK to decrease by 300) and had no defense against the attack. Yugi would then attack "Gate Guardian" with "Summoned Skull" since the water around the area will help guide his monster's attack towards "Gate Guardian". The Paradox Brothers try to use one of their monster's section's effects to protect itself, but nothing happens. Yugi reveals that one of the attacked "Hats" contained "Spellbinding Circle", which Yugi then activates to prevent "Gate Guardian's" sections from defending against his "Summoned Skull's" attack as well as weaken each section's ATK by 700. Because of that, the attack made by "Summoned Skull" destroys Gate Guardian's bottom section. Later, Yugi releases his "Dark Magician" from the hat it was hiding in so that it could move further through the maze.
  • In episode 33, this card appears when Yami Yugi explains to Joey that Duel Monsters is about the balance between Monster, Spell and Trap Cards.
    • In the dub version of this episode, this card is shown within a series of scenes from previous episodes that are shown after Yugi and Joey make it clear to each other that they will Duel their hardest to see who will get to Duel Pegasus.
  • In episode 34, Yugi uses this card during his Duel against Joey. He uses this card to create four "Hats" and hide his "Dark Magician" in one. Joey's "Black Skull Dragon" then destroys a hat, but it turns out to be an empty one. Joey then tries to get Yugi to release his "Dark Magician" out by "accidentally" summoning "Garoozis" in Attack Position. However Yugi is not fooled by this and just sets a card face-down. Joey's "Black Skull Dragon" then attacks anothers "Hat", but that was empty too. On Joey's next turn, "Black Skull Dragon" destroys another third "Hat", but this allows Yugi to activate "Spellbinding Circle", holding down "Black Skull Dragon" and reducing its ATK by 700. The last "Hat" containing "Dark Magician" was destroyed shortly after Yugi releases "Dark Magician". Yugi then equips "Dark Magician" with "Book of Secret Arts" to increase its ATK and DEF by 300. "Dark Magician" then attacks and destroys "Black Skull Dragon".
  • In episode 35, this card is shown in Yugi's hand during his Duel against Maximillion Pegasus. In the next episode, this card is still shown in Yugi's hand. In the following episode, Yami Yugi uses this card to create four "Hats" and hide his "Dark Magician" in one of them. Pegasus then uses his Millennium Eye to read Yami Yugi's mind to find the "Hat" that hides the "Dark Magician", but Yami Yugi switches minds with Yugi Muto, leaving Pegasus unable to find the location as Yugi doesn't know. Pegasus' "Toon Summoned Skull" then attacks one "Hat", but it was empty. On Pegasus's next turn, "Toon Summoned Skull" attacks another "Hat", but that was empty too. Later, Pegasus activates "Magical Neutralizing Force" to destroy the remaining "Hats" and reveal "Dark Magician".

Later "Slifer the Sky Dragon" attacks the hat that contains "Dark Magician Girl", but Yugi activates "Magic Cylinder" and "Spellbinding Circle" to decrease the ATK of "Slifer" by 700 as well as redirect the attack back to "Slifer", however String uses the effect of "Jam Defender" to let "Revival Jam" intercept the attack, destroying it instead.

"Berserk Dragon" then attacks all of the hats on Yugi's side of the field to destroy Yugi's Deck Master.
