The Original Fighting Bakugan

     Haos Tigrerra 

Tigrerra

Debuted In: Battle Brawlers


  • Blood Knight: She definitely seems to like having a fight, though she is smart enough to be a strategist when needed.
  • Contralto of Danger: Tigrerra gets this whenever she gets angry. In the following seasons, her voice seems to drop a whole octave into the deeper side, with her voice always deep even if she is having a simple conversation.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: When in her true form, she is shown to have a thin scar over her left eye, likely from a prior battle.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners / Platonic Life-Partners: Tigrerra and Preyas are some of Drago's closest friends. When he discovers Helios was the one who captured her for the Vestals, he flips his shit.
  • Intrigued by Humanity: Tigrerra is always confused by some of humanity's actions and emotions, showing surprise with how fast they can go from one emotion to another very quickly.
  • Light 'em Up: Haos-attributed.
  • Mama Bear: She does not take it well if one of her companions falls in battle.
  • Mighty Roar: She always lets one out when she is on the battlefield.
  • Panthera Awesome: She is a tiger after all.
  • Parental Substitute: Seems to take this role with Runo.
  • Single Tear: Implied in "Just for the Shun of It", as she notes that humans are strange, while a sparkle that is clearly indicated to be a tear appears at her eye.
  • She's a Man in Japan: In the English version she's female, but in the Japanese version he's a male, which becomes more obvious after he evolves to Blade Tigrerra.
  • The Stoic: Like Drago and Skyress, Tigrerra is one of the most level-headed Bakugan, and rarely shows outright emotion.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In New Vestroia, both her G-power and abilities were buffed. In Mechtanium Surge, she does some good damage against Mechtavius Destroyer, making the souped-up Mechtogan Titan keel over in pain.
  • Worthy Opponent: She always did want to fight Drago.
  • Wolverine Claws: More pronounced as Blade Tigrerra, but they were always there.

     Subterra Gorem 

Gorem

Debuted In: Battle Brawlers


  • The Big Guy: Size-wise, he could probably stand next to some of the tinier Mechtogan the same way a child would stand next to an adult.
  • Gentle Giant: Despite his intimidating size and deep voice, he's really sweet and kind to the ones he cares about, especially Julie.

     Darkus Hydranoid 

Hydranoid

Debuted In: Battle Brawlers
  • Blood Knight: He may enjoy his times of peace, but at his heart Hydranoid loves himself a good fight.
  • Chainsaw Good: As Dual and Alpha Hydranoid, he has a rotating chainsaw blade in his belly.
  • Dark Is Evil: While serving Masquerade, Hydranoid was constantly obsessed with gaining power and didn't care how many Bakugan he had to send to the Doom Dimension to do it.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Mellowed out a lot while being Alice's partner.
  • Badass Decay: The writers gave this guy the shaft after Season 1, and his G-power dropped from 550 to 500 G's while Gorem, Preyas, and Tigrerra got boosted to that level and had their abilities buffed, making Hydranoid seem comparatively unimpressive. Compare his successors Helios and Dharak, who both got buffed in Mechtanium Surge.
  • Heel–Face Turn: His Undying Loyalty for Masquerade also means he'll stay loyal to the much sweeter Alice.
  • Multiple Head Case: Grows one additional head and tail with each evolution.
  • Redemption Demotion: Played with; even after becoming a good guy, Hydranoid remained the brawlers' strongest asset outside of Drago for the remainder of Season 1. From Season 2 onwards, however, he got shafted by the writers and even decreased in G-power, whereas Preyas; Tigrerra, and Skyress still got great showings.
  • Ratings Blew Up The Reading Scale: In his debut, his at the time insane G-power of 450 caused Dan to believe their measuring equipment was faulty. It wasn't.
  • The Rival: For Drago, in Season 1.
  • World's Strongest Man: Was the first Bakugan to aspire to become the "Ultimate Bakugan", and had the show ended at Season 1, he would have been the top contender, seeing how Naga was dead and Drago Ascended to a Higher Plane of Existence.

     Wavern 

Wavern

Debuted In: Battle Brawlers
  • Cain and Abel: The Abel to Naga's Cain.
  • Contralto of Danger: This is her tone of voice whenever she is discussing something serious, and given that ninety percent of her apperances are serious situations, or discussing something serious, this is her default voice. Whenever she is speaking more casually, or is trying to explain something quickly, her voice becomes more calmer and gentler.
  • Damsel in Distress: While the Infinity Core does make her more than capable of defending herself, holding onto it for so long is draining her strength and slowly killing her. Not to mention that the sheer power that comes with the Infinity Core causes her to become a target, especially for Naga.
  • Healing Hands: She fully heals Joe of his medical problems when they first meet.
  • Light Is Good: She is in possession of the positive energy of the Infinity Core, which she can use to heal those near death and repel negative energy, and is the one being standing between Naga and ultimate power.
  • Not So Above It All: She is mostly a relatively serious person who rarely makes comedy a priority, yet when she reunites with Drago, she shamelessly flirts with him in front of the Brawlers, much to his annoyance.
  • Official Couple: With Drago. She outright confirms it when Julie asks if they were together.
  • Our Wyverns Are Different: Besides her name being directly derived from the word "wyvern", she's also a bipedal dragon with bat-like arm-wings.
  • Single Tear: Sheds this when Naga threatens Joe.
  • Spirit Advisor:
    • Her first appearance has her do this to Joe, when she appears in the sky to inform him about the Infinity Core.
    • She later becomes one for Drago after her death.
  • Twin Telepathy: Possessing the Infinity Core allows her twin brother Naga to communicate with her using the Silent Core.
  • The Mentor: To Joe, and later after her death, to Drago.

Tentaclear

Debuted In: Battle Brawlers


  • Blinded by the Light: His signature attack is to shine too brightly for the opponents' eyes.
  • Faceless Eye: It's a giant, floating eye.
  • The Speechless: Due to being a massive floating eyeball, there's a pretty good explanation as to why Tentaclear is the only Guardian Bakugan to never speak.
