In episode 3, Weevil Underwood asked Yugi if he could look at his Exodia pieces. Yugi does so, but right after seeing the Exodia cards, Weevil throws Yugi's Exodia cards overboard to insure that Yugi can't use them to help him win his Duels in Duelist Kingdom. Despite Joey Wheeler jumping in to try and save the cards, he only recovers two pieces.
In episode 55, Seeker uses this card during his Duel against Joey. After Seeker got all five piece of Exodia into his hand, he won the Duel through an Automatic Win. After the Duel, Seeker revealed to Joey he had 3 complete sets of Exodia to insure him of his victories.
In the first above-mentioned episode, this card is shown when Adrian arrives at where Exodia is sealed off and takes out the five Exodia pieces from his Deck.
In the first above-mentioned episode, this card is shown in a flashback Adrian has when he remembers Yubel telling him that his will is more immense than the gods and that not even Adrian himself can tear it down.
In episode 149, this card was shown in Adrian's hand during his Duel against Jesse Anderson while the latter was possessed by Yubel. He is forced to send this card from his hand to the Graveyard due to the effect of "Hand Destruction". Later Adrian activates the effect of "Ritual of the Ultimate Forbidden Lord" to return this card, "Left Leg of the Forbidden One", and "Left Arm of the Forbidden One" from his Graveyard to his Deck, discard "Exodia the Forbidden One" and "Right Arm of the Forbidden One", and Special Summon "Exodius the Ultimate Forbidden Lord". Later "Exodius" (whose ATK was 3000 due to its fourth effect) attacks "Uria, Lord of Searing Flames" (whose ATK was 3000 due to its own effect). Adrian then activates the third effect of "Exodius" to send this card from his Deck to the Graveyard, which increases the ATK of "Exodius" by 1000. Jesse then sends "Eternal Reverse" to the Graveyard in order to prevent "Uria's" destruction, however he still takes Battle Damage. In the next episode, Adrian activates the last effect of "Fog Castle" to send the latter and all cards from his field and hand to the Graveyard and add this card, "Right Arm of the Forbidden One", "Left Arm of the Forbidden One", and "Exodia the Forbidden One" from his Graveyard to his hand. Adrian then activates "Break the Seal" and activates the latter's effect to add "Left Leg of the Forbidden One" from his Deck to his hand, but Jesse sends "Nightmare Shuffle" to the Graveyard in order to activate "Hand Destruction", which forces both players to send four cards in his hand to the Graveyard and draw four cards. Adrian was then forced to send the four Exodia pieces in his hand to the Graveyard and draw four cards while Jesse just draws one card as he had no cards in his hand. Adrian then activates "A Feather of the Phoenix" to take "Exodia the Forbidden One" from his Graveyard and place it on top of his Deck. Adrian planned to activate "Backup Soldier" on his next turn to get the three remaining Exodia pieces in his hand and gain an Automatic Win, but Jesse defeats him before that could happen.
In the first above-mentioned episode, this card appears in Adrian's thoughts, when he reminds himself that he killed Echo in order to release Exodia.
