All and all, ''Bakugan'' could be seen as a combination of many different popular series. It is in varying parts reminiscent of ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' (the whole "{{save both worlds}}" thing--overall, it probably skews closest to ''[[Anime/DigimonTamers Tamers]]''), ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' (the sentient Bakugan is somewhat like the spirit monsters in ''[[Anime/YuGiOhGX GX]]'', and the game is played with cards), Franchise/{{Pokemon}} (in that Pokemon was one of the first "mon" series and this series features battling monsters contained in spherical devices), and ''Anime/{{Beyblade}}'' (MerchandiseDriven). There is one notable difference from these series, and that is that the non-human characters are able to talk while in ball form. (Go ahead, there's no instance where a Franchise/{{Pokemon}} ever talks to its trainer while inside a Poké Ball.)
