Bakugan Battle Brawlers is a video game based on the original anime series made by NOW Production and Activision for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS and Wii. The game was released on October 20, 2009.


One day the player's character meets Dan Kuso, one of the Battle Brawlers, who teaches him the rules in a fight against Shuji. ( In the DS version, you get a Pyrus Serpenoid to start off with. In all other versions, you get a Serpenoid, a Juggernoid, and a Saurus that match the attribute you chose at the start of the game). After going to the local store and meeting Alice, who suggests the player should battle with other brawlers in the park to earn BP (Bakugan Points, the game's currency) a strange Bakugan called Leonidas gets teleported to the park, who is now the new best friend of the player. (Leonidas' attribute depends on what attribute you chose). Leonidas is an unknown and aggressive Bakugan that was created by all the hate and anger of the lost Bakugan trapped in the Doom Dimension. In several fights the player will meet a lot of people but at the same time a Darkus user, whose name is Marduk, Desires to rule over all Bakugan together with Vladitor, another Bakugan that suddenly appears.

Right after Naga got the Silent Core, the seals that held Vladitor captive in the Doom Dimension suddenly broke and he escaped from the Doom Dimension. At the end of a tournament when Dan makes the player an official Bakugan Battle Brawler, Marduk is revealed to have allied with Hal G, Masquerade and Naga in order to defeat the Battle Brawlers and rule over the worlds and the Bakugan. The player must win the Ultimate Battle Tournament, defeating also Dan, Runo, Marucho, Julie, Shun, Masquerade, and a 1-on-1 showdown with Omega Leonidas and Battle Axe Vladitor. After the player wins, both Vladitor and Leonidas disappear, Leonidas and Vladitor say that their time is up after the brawl. Later, the player discovers that Vladitor gave Leonidas his remaining power, saying 'he deserved it' which allowed Leonidas to return to the human world, leaving Leonidas to assume that Vladitor "wasn't all bad". The game ends with the player throwing Leonidas in the air shouting, "Bakugan brawl!".

Battle system[edit]

The Bakugan battles are very different from the anime series and the general rules. At the beginning take a gate card, which will land on the field. Then you have to target an aim on the battlefield (like a gate card or items), choose one of your three Bakugan and throw them to where you wanted them to land. It is possible to either let it directly get on one of the gate cards or to move it to items, trampolines, or other locations that will give your Bakugan extra G-power.

In the video game, different Bakugan have different special attacks, which can be activated once the special meter is full. special attacks do various things, such as knocking Bakugan off of gate cards or shooting into the air to reach platforms.

If two Bakugan stand on one gate card the fight starts. You can now activate ability cards in order to power-up your Bakugan even more or to change the battle rules. The fight itself is nothing more than one of three different mini-games (shooting if battle on a Gold Card, shaking if on a Copper Card, pressing buttons at the right time on a Silver Card and power battles in the PlayStation 2 and 3). With the help of these mini-games both Bakugan gain more G-Power, which decides after it who will win the fight.

The winner gets the gate card and a new battle can begin.

Who is able to collect three gate cards will win the entire brawl. The winner earns BP (Bakugan Points) to upgrade their Bakugan, buy new Bakugan, buy new gate cards, or buy new ability cards.

Original Bakugan[edit]

This is the only game that features Leonidas, Vladitor, and Marduk. The other games do not feature Leonidas, although it was possible to introduce him back, for example, in Defenders of the core, which could've had the 2nd Leonidas Bakugan of this game as the Player's Bakugan rather than Neo Dragonoid. This has driven people to make fan fictions of the Bakugan "Leonidas" starting from either right after the Video Game or at the beginning of New Vestroia. A couple fanfictions even brought back Vladitor either as a revived Bakugan like Leonidas, or a Cyborg Bakugan like Helios, which is both possible, although he wouldn't be an antagonist.

Bakugan Battle Brawlers: Battle Trainer (2010)[edit]

Bakugan Battle Brawlers: Battle Trainer
Publisher(s) Activision, Inc.
Platform(s) Nintendo DS
Release March 23, 2010

Bakugan Battle Brawlers: Battle Trainer is the second Bakugan video game for the Nintendo DS. It has a few minigames. There are 30 Bakugan, like the last game, and it will also have hidden Bakugan. A mistake is that in the game, the player's "Ultimate Dragonoid" in sphere mode is actually a Pyrus Naga.


One month ago, a spaceship called the Dark Star has abducted most of the Earth's Bakugan. To make matters worse, in a test of teleportation technology to get to the Dark Star, Dan has forgotten all of that! In order to rescue the captive Bakugan, Dan will have to train himself and his Bakugan in order to beat the kidnappers, who call themselves the Regulars.

Near the finale, the Brawlers discovered that Professor Trecov is Vector, and he stole all Bakugan from Earth with his pals Aurock, Viper and Mantis. Vector reveals his plan to take the Silent Core and create the ultimate Bakugan. After the final battle, he escaped while claiming revenge on Dan.

In the game's ending, Masquerade appears angered because of the Regulars' failure, revealing that they were working for Naga and the Doom Beings. Masquerade claimed to take down the Brawlers himself.

The game takes place between Bakugan Battle Brawlers episodes 37 and 38.
