YMMV / Bakugan

For the anime:

For the real card game:

  • Adaptation Displacement: There’s an actual Card Game?
  • Game-Breaker: The "H-Bomb". The card "Haos 2" (where you steal one of your opponents won gate cards by having a lower printed power) makes the "H", a "Lowest Power Wins" gate card is the fuse, and a low-power Haos bakugan is the bomb. You win two points in a single round. This is getting increasingly broken as the G-power cap rises and will probably never go out of fashion. The only limit is that you can have only one of each card in your deck.
  • "Stop Having Fun" Guys: Who are on opposing sides about rolling.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Harpus is male… not even the shows staff got this.

For the video games:

Bakugan Battle Brawlers
  • Game-Breaker: Darkus Leonidus with a specific set of 4 cards (one Gate Card, 3 Ability Cards) can easily break 1000 G-Power before adding pickups and whatever is generated in the battle itself. To say nothing about Omega Leonidas with Darkus Attribute and the same setup (substituting one ability card).
