Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V

  • In episode 143, Gong Strong uses this card during his second Action Duel against Yuya Sakaki. He Synchro Summons this card by tuning "Superheavy Samurai Fist" with "Superheavy Samurai Preservation" and "Superheavy Samurai Big Benkei". It proceeds to attack Yuya directly, while in Defense Position and applying its DEF for damage calculation, but Yuya activates "Performapal Signal" to draw a card. It is "Performapal Sword Fish", which Yuya then discards to negate the attack. Gong proceeds to activate this card's first effect, banishing the "No Action" Action Card in his Graveyard to inflict 200 damage on Yuya. On Yuya's next turn, he activates "Pendulum Illusion", allowing him to discard a Spell/Trap Card from his hand in order to halve this card's ATK and DEF and make its controller exposed to piercing damage while in Defense Position; in exchange, this card cannot be destroyed by battle. Yuya's "Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon" subsequently attacks this card and inflicts 200 damage on Gong through its damage-doubling effect. On Gong's next turn, he activates this card's other effect, discarding two cards in his hand to destroy a monster on the field ("Odd-Eyes"). He then activates this card's first effect again, banishing the Action Card he picked up to inflict 200 damage on Yuya.
    • As a result, the rest of the duel cycles between the effects of this card and "Pendulum Illusion", as Yuya and Gong race for Action Cards to activate their respective card's effects. Also, Yuya skips his Draw Phases to keep "Pendulum Illusion" active, while Gong uses this card's first effect to banish Spell/Trap Cards in his Graveyard to inflict damage. Each time this card destroys "Odd-Eyes" through its effect, Yuya would Pendulum Summon it on his next turn, and each time "Odd-Eyes" attacked this card, it would inflict 200 damage on Gong due to "Pendulum Illusion" halving this card's DEF and exposing Gong to piercing damage. Yuya wins this race.
