In episode 45, Yami Yugi uses this card to protect himself, Joey Wheeler and Mai from the swarm of Insect monsters that were attacking the trio.

Valon then uses the effect of "Active Guard" to nullify the damage he would take. "Diamond Head Dragon" then destroys "Big Bang Blow", but this activates the effect of "Big Bang Blow", destroying all monsters on the field and inflicting damage to all players equal to the total ATK of each destroyed monster they controlled. As Valon used the effect of "Active Guard", only Rebecca and Duke take the damage and this wins Valon the Duel.

In the following episode, Kaiba activates "Fang of Critias" to merge it with this card in order to Special Summon "Mirror Force Dragon". In the next episode, Dartz's "Orichalcos Shunoros" attacks "Legendary Knight Critias", but Yami Yugi uses the effect of "Legendary Knight Critias" to activate this card from the Graveyard and destroy all of Dartz's monsters as well as inflict the ATK difference between "Legendary Knight Critias" and Dartz's monsters as damage to Dartz.

Yugi then reveals that he purposely did that because it was the only way for his plan to destroy the Egyptian Gods to continue as planned.
