What appeared to be an early version of "Newdoria" appeared as one of the Duel Spirits menacing Mokuba Kaiba after the Capsule Monsters match in the manga.
In episode 122, Yami Marik uses this card during the four-way Battle Royal between himself, Yami Yugi, Joey Wheeler, and Seto Kaiba. He summons this card in Defense Position. In the next episode, Yami Marik switches this card into Attack Position and uses it to attack Kaiba's "Vorse Raider". "Vorse Raider" destroys this card, but this activates this card's effect, destroying "Vorse Raider". Yami Marik then activates "Spell of Pain" to make Joey take all the Battle Damage he would have taken from the attack.
