  • In episode 168, Taigo Sorano uses this card during his Duel against Jaden Yuki. He uses this card to switch one of Jaden's two "Fluff Tokens" to Attack Position. After "Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV8" attacks and destroys the Attack Position Fluff Token, Taigo activates "Sealer Formation" and intends to use its effect to add this card from his Graveyard to his hand on his next Draw Phase so that he could use it to switch either "Cross Porter" or the remaining Fluff Token into Attack Position and win the duel by attacking the affected monster with "Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV8". Taigo didn't get the chance to do so as Jaden beats him before then.
