This trap was first used by Gen Bou against the Cavalry charge of the Hi Shin Unit. After catching Shin's vanguard in devious trap after devious trap, the Heavenly King caught them in one final play. As they charged the Gen Bou's HQ, he ordered his men to unleash the Picket Trap on the attacking forces, skewering the horses of the Hi Shin Unit's cavalry and throwing their riders into disarray. Left in the middle of enemy territory with only a handful of survivors, the Hi Shin Unit risked destruction, but were saved by the timely arrival of the Gyoku Hou Unit.
