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.)

*** Season 4 is Deconstructing this rather hard. Drago's latest evolution is way too much for him to control and is causing ''a lot'' of problems. It's created an unstoppable engine of destruction that's kicking everyone's butts, threatening to set [[BigBad Mag Mel]] [[SealedEvilInACan out of his prison]], and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking ''completely ruining''' Dan and Drago's reputation with their in-universe fanbase]] because they're fighting poorly due to needing to focus on controlling their power. Then, [[spoiler: he evolves ''AGAIN'' to solve the problems this new evolution caused, but for the last time]]. Basically, [[TheyJustDidntCare the people behind the series didn't really care how much they abused the evolution gimmick.]]
