In the manga Edit

The Wind Racer! Otokogi Edit

The Spider From Mars was found in the foreign graveyard by the boy named Tom Ghody. Unfortunately, the car had already tainted with the darkness and Tom was possessed by the dark force, leading him to destroy any Mini 4WD cars left and right.

Tom was freed from the dark force when the car was purified at the end of the race against Otokogi and his Liberty Emperor. Since then, it becomes his own machine.
