In episode 188, Solomon Muto uses this card during his Duel against Joey Wheeler while the former was disguised as Apdnarg Otum. When "Goblin Attack Force" attacks "Ancient Giant", Solomon activates "Ordeal of a Traveler" and uses this card for its effect. Joey guesses Spell Card, but Solomon reveals that Joey was wrong, so "Goblin Attack Force" returns to Joey's hand. Later Solomon uses the effect of "Ancient Tome" to swap this card with the top card of his Deck. On Solomon's next turn, he draws this card. He then discards this card in order to keep "Ancient Tome" on the field. This card's effect then activates, returning it to Solomon's hand. Later "Gilford the Lightning" attacks directly, but Solomon activates the effect of "Ordeal of a Traveler" and uses this card for its effect. Joey guesses Monster Card. Solomon then reveals that Joey was right, so the attack continues. This card remained in Solomon's hand until the Duel was over.
In episode 5, two copies of this card are shown as two of the four face-up cards that Jaden Yuki and his friends were using to tell ghost stories during the "ghost stories" segment at the start of the episode. One copy was drawn by Jaden, so he uses this card to tell his friends a story that would be as scary as something that would be at Level 1. The other copy was on the table along with the other cards that were already used.
