Effects from the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime do not apply to the card game, especially not in a legal tournament. You can only use the text that is actually on the card (and any modifications due to errata or official rulings).
Of course, in a friendly game, you and your opponent are welcome use those affects if you agree. If you want to play that way, nothing is stopping you.
Definitely not in a tournament. You would have to use the printed effect, but if you can get the people you are playing against (in a casual setting) to agree to the change in effect, sure you can! (Most people wouldn't want to play you if you had that though, even if it requires the tribute of three monsters)
Summary: As house rules, yes. In a tournament, no.
