Yoshito-kun gives the capsules to the Dragon Ball Heroes before they enter the arcade game to battle the Shadow Dragons and free the kidnapped tournament contestants. Beat uses his capsule when facing the possessed Nimu. When Kabra becomes a Super Class avatar against Salaga, he displays increased defensive capabilities thanks to the armor gained.
