Duel Masters Charge

He was ordered by Miss Kirumi to defeat Shobu by any means as she threatened him that if he won't she would hurt his friend Delicious. He then started to investigate things before taking action he knew Shobu is strong because he defeated Chappi. In order to defeat Shobu he knew he is not strong enough so started to look for a strong card and in the rumors there was a strong card in the local card shop. The card rumored to be the Cursed Card Dorballom, Lord of Demons. He stole that right in front of Kokujo and ran away then kidnapped Rekuta in order to draw out Shobu. He then tried to build a deck around this new card but he was not able to, but just then he got overtaken by Dorballom and he made his new deck.

Then when Shobu arrived to save Rekuta he challenged Shobu for a Kaijudo duel and Shobu accepted the challenge but suddenly the powers of Dorballom took over him and he was taken to Kokujo without him able to duel Shobu. He dueled Kokujo in control of Dorballom. He was successfully able to summon Dorballom but he still lost in the end.

He then reappeared with Chappi, Bura and Delicious as a Phantom Duelist. He paired up with Bura in a "Double Duel" against Dr. Root . He lost many times against Dr. Root in this match and was being reappeared because of the Phantom Machine which was controlled by Dr. Manson. Soon Dr. Root defeated them and Knight destroyed the source of the machine and he with other were released from the Phantom Machine.

He was a very close friend of Delicious and Force. They had become the champions of the Underground Duel Tournament. He was the second best in that tournament. Soon he with his friends were offered to become the members of Fua Duelist and they had to accept the offer as they had no where else to go. When they came to the castle they made new close friendship with Chappi and Bura. They were trained by Miss Kirumi and she defeated them all many times. Then one day they were called into the Duel Room so that they can be chosen as the next member of the Fua Duelist. He with Chappi, Bura and Delicious were all defeated by their best friend Force. He was later accepted as the member of the organization.
