** Volt Luster is likely the most popular of the Vexos, being likely the most honorable antagonist in the series, by far the most sympathetic, and arguably the best Vexos in terms of pure skill in Season 2, after he TookALevelinBadass and was able to hold his own against Shun/Baron simulataneously, and handed Hydron's ass to him. Also liked was his shades of HiddenDepths, being implied to serve Hydron out of loyalty rather than Zenoheld, his rescue from poverty all but stated to be the reason why, which is likely why he didn't kill Hydron. Not many fans took well to him being PutonABusToHell and never being reunited with Brontes

* TheyWastedaPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Many wanted Volt to join the brawlers, and by extension replace TheScrappy that Baron was with a much more interesting and complex character. This never happens.

* ShipToShipCombat: For some reason, it's not about Dan the main character, but about Shun, his {{Foil}} & {{Lancer}}. Between [[ProperLady Alice]] and [[BadassPrincess Fabia]], pick your choice....

** Mag Mel performing MindRape on Dan and Dragon ForTheEvulz. If not that, then paralyzing a boy in fear to place the Brawlers in a SadisticChoice where they either have to kill an innocent human being or let Mag Mel's monsters continue to destroy everything in their path.

* ShippingBedDeath: The finale of ''Battle Brawlers'' tied up a lot of the romantic subplots. Naturally, this means there's nothing left for the female Brawlers to do and they're all either Demoted To Extras or Put On A Bus entirely in ''New Vestroia''. Three new characters join Dan, Marucho and Shun to make up the new six-element team-- and two of them are male. PeripheryDemographic? What's that? We just [[MerchandiseDriven want to sell toys]], and [[Anime/{{Beyblade}} that]] [[Franchise/YuGiOh requires a]] CastFullOfPrettyBoys, [[Franchise/{{Gundam}} right?]]

* UnintentionallySympathetic: Hydron. He might act like a spoiled brat, but at the end of the day, he's still just a lonely teenager who was repeatedly abused by the very person that was supposed to care for him.

* FirstInstallmentWins: To many fans, Bakugan will never be as good as it was in the first series, no doubt thanks to {{Nelvana}} [[{{Retcon}} changing the relationship]] between Dan and Runo from OfficialCouple to just friends ,later series slowly but surely losing various GamingAndSportsAnimeAndManga elements and strategy until the middle of Gundailan Invaders where the show becomes about {{Kaiju}} spamming Ability Cards, and the female characters being treated horribly (the first series had a balanced main cast of three boys and three girls, but only the three boys became mainstays for the next three series.)
* FoeYay: Often overlaps with HoYay as well, And IT'S OFTEN! An example is last battle between Dan and Masquerade in ''Battle Brawlers''. The battle was goddamn epic and...well, [[DoubleEntendre Intense]], complete with collateral damage and...ClothingDamage, well, Masquerade turns to be [[spoiler: [[ProperLady Alice]] [[SamusIsAGirl Gehabich]]]]. And the [[spoiler: guy in a girl's body tore off his tattered longcoat mid-battle, which exposed bare, feminine shoulders. And the reason he had a breastplate on? [[FridgeLogic To hide a pair of boobs underneath.]]]]

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_M5UNfG_Yo It has also been]] the battle cry for [[Main.ThreeHundred King Leonidas]], stopped the [[Franchise/StarTrek USS Enterprise]], been commentated on and then eaten by OrsonWelles, fought crime in [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Gotham City]], defeated all of [[Anime/YuGiOh Kaiba's Blue-Eyes White Dragons]], and generally been awesome on all levels.

* FreudianExcuse: Hydron. He might act like a spoiled brat, but at the end of the day, he's still just a lonely teenager who was repeatedly abused by the very person that was supposed to care for him.



* ShipTease: Julie/Dan for awhile, even though [[IKnewIt we all knew he would end up with Runo in the end]] and Julie gets with Billy. Shun/Alice, and Klaus/Alice
** Dan/Alice in New Vestroia. Plus Foeyay between Masquerade (Alice) and Dan... Hmm...
** In ''New Vestroia'', Ace/Mira and Dan/Mira.
*** [[BrotherSisterIncest Keith/Mira]], impressive considering this season is specially made for Americans at first, [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar thus... umm...]]
** ''Gundalian Invaders'' provides some Dan/Fabia undertones.
*** Gundalian Invaders also had some Shun/Fabia, as in the deleted scene of episode 4 where it shows Shun and Fabia talking about the war in Shun's house...''at night''. It's implied she stay in his house for the night, as she's still shown there in episode 6. Then all the teamwork between them, especially one of the last scenes of episode 34.
*** And some shipper remarked that [[http://images2.fanpop.com/image/photos/13500000/fabia-sheen-fabia-sheen-13596827-475-341.jpg Fabia]] [[http://images2.fanpop.com/image/quiz/439000/439328_1278490443045_478_361.jpg resembles]] Shun's [[MissingMom deceased]] [[http://images2.fanpop.com/image/photos/13800000/shun-s-mom-shun-kazami-13822017-483-363.jpg mom]].... this argument can be used [[{{Squick}} against the pairing]] or [[LikeParentLikeSpouse support it]] apparently....

* BrokenBase: Either ''Baku Tech! Bakugan'' is the best reboot of the franchise, or the worst one ever done by {{Sega}}.
