In episode 96, Andre uses three copies of this card during his Turbo Duel against Yusei Fudo. He Special Summons this card from his hand via "Battle Instinct" when "Junk Archer" attacks directly. A replay then occurs and Yusei uses "Junk Archer" to attack and destroy this card instead. This activates this card's effect, increasing Andre's Life Points by 1000 and Special Summoning two more copies of this card from his Deck. On Andre's next turn, he Tributes "Playful Possum" and one copy in order to Tribute Summon "Behemoth the King of All Animals". The latter's effect then activates, allowing Andre to return the two copies in his Graveyard to his hand. Andre then switches the third copy into Attack Position. In the next episode, Andre activates "Beast Burial Ritual" to destroy this card and draw two cards. He then activates the effect of "Green Baboon, Defender of the Forest" to Special Summon itself from the Graveyard. On Andre's next turn, he Normal Summons another copy. Andre then sends the other copy in his hand to the Graveyard in order to Special Summon "Egotistical Ape". Andre then activates the effect of "Egotistical Ape" in order to increase its Level by the Level of this card. Yusei then activates "Shield Coat" to double the DEF of "Shield Wing". Andre then tunes this card with "Egotistical Ape" in order to Synchro Summon "Naturia Leodrake".
In episode 101, during Yusei's Turbo Duel against Breo, Breo was forced to send this card from the top of his Deck to the Graveyard via the effect of "Voltic Bicorn".
In the anime, when this card's effect is used, the Special Summoned "Nimble Momonga" are summoned face-up instead of face-down.
