Garoben was a Youma summoned by Jadeite to drain energy from unsuspecting students as part of the Dark Kingdom's continuing energy-gathering efforts. She appeared in anime episode 8.

She was in charge of the Crystal Seminar, a cram school that Ami attended. The students were given disks that they were to do their homework on, not knowing that the disk would activate a program that would drain their energy. Usagi discovered the disk after a new student, Ami, left it behind. Suspecting Ami to be from the Dark Kingdom, Usagi disguised herself before storming into the school, asking who was in charge. However, Garoben, in her human form, told Ami that she could lead the class that day.

Usagi confronted Ami, and transformed into Sailor Moon before Garoben appeared, grabbing Ami by the neck and taking her hostage before transforming into her youma form, an ugly red-skinned creature with dark spiky hair, a light purple mark on her forehead, and spikes that stretched from her shoulders and back. While holding Ami, she first puzzled Sailor Moon with math questions before sending dozens of razor-sharp test sheets at her. Sailor Moon managed to dodge them, but ended up in a corner. Garoben asked if she wanted to surrender now, or later, before the hypnotized, energy-drained students began surrounding Sailor Moon.

While Sailor Moon was busy fending off the students, Garoben forced Ami to look at her computer screen in an attempt to drain her energy, only to find it ineffective. It was then revealed that Ami was in fact Sailor Mercury. Garoben threw her to the ground, and morphed her left hand into a large axe. After managing to dodge the first swing of the axe, Ami managed to transform into Sailor Mercury. Garoben wound up for another strike, but became lost in the cold mist created by Mercury's bubble attack. As she began shivering, the hypnotized students collapsed, freeing Sailor Moon. Using her tiara, Sailor Moon managed to destroy Garoben.
