In the anime

The Douse Drive in the anime

The Douse Drive, along with the other Drives, appeared in Genesect and the Legend Awakened, attached to a member of the Genesect Army. While it was used with the same purpose of changing the type of Techno Blast in the movie, it was also the key item to tell its owner apart from the other Genesect.

The Genesect with the Douse Drive had a different personality from the others, and was typically timid and kind unless forced to act by its leader.
