Tucker is a superstar and enjoys the sound of a crowd chanting his name. He prefaces battles with narcissistic comments, and if he loses, turns over the Tactics Symbol to the trainer's Frontier Pass.

In the anime

Tucker's only anime appearance was in the episode Tactics Theatrics. He used an Arcanine and Swampert in a double battle against Ash Ketchum. The battle took place in the dome in front of a large audience.

In the Pokemon Special manga

At the beginning of the Battle Frontier saga, Tucker was been assaulted by Emerald while riding to the Battle Frontier Opening Ceremony on his Salamence. Tucker was avidly tied up and thrown backstage during the opening ceremony, where he is found by the other Brains. They let him go and he starts yelling at Emerald, on stage. Scott tells him to be quiet, and Tucker grows a flaming grudge against Emerald. Tucker bears witness to Emerald's victory over Noland, and immediately makes the boy come to his facility. However, the Battle Dome is actually Emerald's fifth challenge.

Unlike the games, Tucker actually takes part in the tournaments rather than just challenging a trainer after winning a set number of tournaments.
