Dynamax Bands first appeared in Flash of the Titans!, under the possession of Lance and Leon. Lance used his Dynamax Band to Dynamax his Gyarados during the World Coronation Series finals, while Leon used his own band to Gigantamax his Charizard.

In The Climb to Be the Very Best!, Leon gave Ash a Dynamax Band of his own so that he could Gigantamax his Pikachu during their battle. After the battle, Leon let Ash keep the band. Unlike his Z-Ring or Z-Power Ring, Ash only equips his Dynamax Band when battling in Galar.

A Dynamax Band belonging to Raihan appeared in Toughing It Out!. He uses it to Gigantamax his Duraludon.

In Sword and Shield: The Darkest Day!, Sonia fashioned a Wishing Star she and Goh had found into a Dynamax Band, which she gave to Goh. He later used it to Dynamax his Raboot in a battle against one of Oleana's subordinates, who had used his own Dynamax Band to Gigantamax his Garbodor.

Two Dynamax Bands first appeared in PASS04, under the ownership of Sōdo and Shirudomiria, respectively. Sōdo was first seen using his Dynamax Band to catch a Gurdurr during a Max Raid Battle. It was later revealed that these two Dynamax Bands had been made from Wishing Stars the two Pokédex holders had found a year earlier in the Slumbering Weald.
