Aside from being on the field in Defense Position, this card played no actual part in any of the attempts made by Crow, Jack, and Bruno when they tried to solve the Duel Puzzle. When Crow attempted to solve the Duel Puzzle, he equipped "Shooting Star Bow - Ceal" to "Green Gadget" to decrease the latter's ATK by 1000. "Tragoedia"(whose ATK was 3000 due to its effect) then attacks "Green Gadget", but the Robot activates this card to destroy "Tragoedia", resulting in Crow failing to solve the puzzle. When Jack attempted to solve the puzzle, he equipped "Axe of Despair" to "Tragoedia", increasing its ATK by 1000. "Tragoedia(whose ATK was 3000 due to its effect) then attacked "Green Gadget" as Jack assumed the face-down card in the Duel Puzzle was changed. Unfortunately this assumption was wrong as the robot then activated this card to once again destroy "Tragoedia", resulting in Jack failing to solve the puzzle. Bruno then took a turn to solve the puzzle. Thanks to his strategy, he was able to remove "Green Gadget" from the field with "Tribute to the Doomed" and take control of "Ancient Gear Soldier"(who had the ability to forbid the opponent from activating Spells and Traps when it attacks) with "Cost Down" and the effect of "Tragoedia". Bruno then equipped "Axe of Despair" onto "Ancient Gear Soldier", increasing its ATK by 1000. "Ancient Gear Soldier" then attacks "Stronghold the Moving Fortress" (who now had 0 ATK since "Green Gadget", "Red Gadget", and "Yellow Gadget" were not all present on the field).

During the duel between Shark and Quattro, the latter sets a card face-down. Shark theorized that the set card is probably this card as Quattro would probably use that in this sort of situation.
