In ''[[SM107|Run, Heroes, Run!]]'', Kiawe was given the task of bringing back some of Tapu Lele's scales in order to rescue Ash, who had been held captive. After hearing of Kiawe's plight, Tapu Lele challenged him to a battle. Despite Tapu Lele's strength, Kiawe managed to land a hit on it with his {{TP|Kiawe|Charizard}}'s {{m|Aerial Ace}}, impressing Tapu Lele enough to give him some of its scales.
====Personality and characteristics====
As a guardian deity, Tapu Lele seems to be a kind and caring Pokémon, willingly using its scales to heal humans and Pokémon, such as Ash and a wild {{p|Yungoos}}, even if it doesn't know them. It also greatly enjoys battling other Pokémon that catch its interest, but its cruel sense of innocence is shown when it seemingly fails to realize that its attacks seriously hurt opponents much weaker than itself. This was demonstrated in ''Rising from the Ruins!'', where it challenged Ash's Rockruff and defeated it easily, acting gleefully happy the whole time.

In ''[[SM090|Securing the Future!]]'', Tapu Bulu, its fellow guardian deities, and the rest of Alola helped {{DL|Light trio (anime)|Necrozma}} regain its {{DL|List of Pokémon with form differences|Necrozma|true form}} by giving it some of their Z-Power.
====Personality and characteristics====
Tapu Bulu appears to be more serious and subdued, compared to the more expressive Tapu Lele and Tapu Fini. In ''[[SM075|Some Kind of Laziness!]]'', it was shown to be a fairly lazy Pokémon due to the fact that it constantly like to sleep on a rock in the [[Ruins of Abundance]]. Despite this, once it saw how determined Ash was to help his {{AP|Lycanroc}}, Tapu Bulu battled the Wolf Pokémon with everything it had. Tapu Bulu was also shown to be very happy for Lycanroc when it got over its aversion to having its fur become wet or dirty.
Tapu Bulu has been shown as being kind to Pokémon, as evident in ''[[SM077|Guiding an Awakening!]]'', when it dropped some Sitrus Berries for Lycanroc to consume during its battle against Nanu following Lycanroc's defeat of {{p|Sableye}}.

In ''[[SM109|A Grand Debut!]]'', Hapu performed a ritual at the Ruins of Hope with Tapu Fini, properly receiving the title of Island Kahuna. Later, Tapu Fini watched Ash and Hapu's grand trial battle.
====Personality and characteristics====
While little is known about Tapu Fini's personality, it appears to be a caring Pokémon, as it was shown holding a sleeping {{DL|Light trio (anime)|Solgaleo|Nebby}} before leaving it for Ash to find.
More of Tapu Fini's personality was seen in ''[[SM107|Run, Heroes, Run!]]'', when it became angered by Kiawe and Ash battling at the [[Ruins of Hope]] and trapped Ash, Pikachu, Rotom, Torracat, Turtonator and Marowak in a veil of water as punishment. It then set Kiawe a task that he must complete in a certain time. Despite that, Tapu Fini is also shown to be a forgiving Pokémon as it awarded Kiawe with the Flyinium Z and blessed Ash's victory in the grand trial.

In ''[[SM101|Parallel Friendships!]]'', it assisted Ash and Dia in their battle against Guzzlord by trapping the the Junkivore Pokémon in a field of electricity. It then restored the ability to use Z-Moves, allowing Ash and Dia to use a double {{m|Gigavolt Havoc}} that forced Guzzlord into a nearby [[Ultra Wormhole]]. Later, it watched Ash and Dia battle each other to recreate the event that transported Ash to Dia's world.
