In "Fight Fighters," Soos, Dipper, Mabel, Grunkle Stan, and Wendy Corduroy go to the arcade. Soos shows Mabel and Stan various games and explains his past there. They then pass Old Man McGucket, who is playing an out-of-order game, Ho-Down Hero, and Stan plays the rip-off game Insert Token. Next, Dipper and Wendy are shown playing Fight Fighters as Rumble McSkirmish and Dr. Karate, respectively. Robbie, who is in the midst of putting up posters for his band, catches sight on them, and comes over, pushing Dipper out of the way.
Later, after Robbie challenges Dipper to a fight, the latter goes to the arcade with Soos in order to hide from his challenger. As he plays Fight Fighters, he uncovers a code to bring the characters of the game to life, enters it and unleashes Rumble McSkirmish, whom he utilizes as a bodyguard. Meanwhile, Soos crawls into and gets stuck in the game NORT, though he does manage to somehow escape later on, albeit with the screen frame stuck around his head.
In "Weirdmageddon Part 1," the arcade is seen when a weirdness wave affected it, causing many video game characters like Rumble McSkirmish to smash out of it and run amok.
