Ethan initially appears to be as eager as his fellow students to engage the Lancers and please Sanders, but he is easily discouraged by the watching Battle Beast, fleeing from him in terror rather than face him in a Duel. At the same time, his pride is easily wounded.
Ethan was selected by Sanders to take part in a Survival Duel alongside Bernie, Jacob, Emma, and Ted against the captured Lancers Yuya Sakaki, Gong Strong, Crow Hogan and Moon Shadow. Sanders deployed Bernie and his fellow students into the "Predaprimal Jungle", and Ethan rushed into the jungle, planning to defeat the Lancers first. He found Yuya, Gong, Sylvio and Crow around the card that contained the defeated Bernie, fleeing from them in terror pursued by Sylvio. He ran into Ted, desperately checking that they weren't Dueling one another until they had defeated the Lancers, admitting that he had fled from them. Ted mocked him after he realized that the losers would be turned into cards, and claimed that he would defeat the Lancers himself. Incensed, Ethan told Ted to wait for him. However, he later encountered the Battle Beast, and he threw his Deck at him, screaming at him to leave him alone, but all this accomplished was leaving him defenseless as the Battle Beast sealed him into a card, which Yuya and Gong later found.
Despite the limit for copies of the same card being three per Deck, Ethan's thrown Deck is shown to contain four copies of "Harpie's Feather Duster".
