First Series Anime
This card has no written card lore in the original manga, and it was given the yellow background of a Normal Monster on the second series anime. Nonetheless, it was actually an Effect Monster in both versions, with the following effect:
Select 1 other monster that you control. This card's ATK decreases to 0, and the selected monster gains ATK equal to the amount of ATK points that were deducted from this card. This effect can only be used once while this card is face-up on the Field.
- This card was originally played in the first duel between Yami Yugi and Seto Kaiba, from the original manga and the first series anime (episode 13 and duel 10, respectively). Kaiba destroys it with his "Megamorph"-equipped "Battle Ox".
