Single Headed Hydranoid

Darkus HydranoidHydranoid is a single-headed tyrant, and was the most omnipotent bakugan, until Dragonoid evolved into delta Dragonoid. Hydranoid was at the base of his development, at 450G’s. In stores, or even on eBay, they are extremely rare, and I didn’t realize they actually existed for sale until I saw it on bakugan wiki. Hydranoid is a master at Darkus combat, and many powerful abilities give it extreme force when going against a Pyrus bakugan. Hydranoid battles very infrequently, so not much is known about him, or it’s fighting attainments. In the end, Hydranoid leaves the evil side, and Masquerade disappears, leaving him in Alice’s control. Hydranoid resembles a demon dragon, with strong limbs, and stands on all four legs. Spikes are commonly known to cover almost all major body parts, including the huge tail. Besides his hideous personality, this species of dragon plays a major role in the existing season 1 bakugan episodes. Nevertheless, all Hydranoids are no longer being put on for sale anywhere. You can still get them on eBay for some around $50.00. He is a very unique bakugan.

Pyrus HydranoidHydranoid battles in his current form from only a few episodes. In the last episode (52), Hydranoid attacked Naga just as he was about to get the infinity core from Drago. In episode 13, Hydranoid battles Skyress, and Drago. Although he fails the first attempt to attack either, Hydranoid unleashes another power surge and Masquerade’s card disappears, meaning he was evolving. Finally, in episode 26, he does. It was a very fast process, because the evolving came around in the middle of Clouces battle. Besides that, there’re no other recorded episodes that involve Hydranoid in battle. This bakugan is arguably the most powerful bakugan in its time, it may have been bred specifically by Ale-g to collect energy and force others into evil activity. A final word for this bakugan, is that all Hydranoids are translucent and either in red or black which is probably contributed why they sell for so much. His body is composed of ultra-strong armor, but when it comes to speed, Hydranoid is devastatingly slow and can’t run since his body is too heavy.

Real Life HydronoidHydranoid is very rare, and looks a little like Splight in ball form. There is a pop-out plate from each side and a single jointed head that reveals two more legs. The head is rather small and flat though and connects to a purple/orange horn. He also has feet, and spikes covering the neck. Hydranoid has a tail similar to Serpenoid’s. Like Drago, Hydranoid can evolve into a more powerful form. The variations are: Hydranoid, Dual Hydranoid, and Alpha Hydranoid. He can come in G-power between 400 and 700 if you’re lucky. Closing and opening it is fairly easy as well. Hydranoid has very muscular legs and is sturdy. He has a frilled neck of spines and very thick armor. Overall, this bakugan is very prone to fire blasts, and many other pierce abilities. His tail acts like a spiny flail and is used in physical combat against slow bakugan. I would strongly recommend buying it if you could find him for a lower price, because he makes a very unique and powerful addition to one’s collection.

Bakugan Glotronoid

Glotronoid is a currently new bakugan with some non-regular features from other bakugan. They have an unusually high number of scenes in the show as a more secondary bakugan. But he has only been seen battling in episode 1 and 5 of the Gundalian invaders. They are not very common, and they have the rare ability to light up when opened. However, they do not sound as others do like how Lumatroid does. He can also be seen lighting up in real mode once he activates certain abilities. He can be seen on bakugan dimensions. Glotronoid has a very thin body, and long arms and legs. He actually looks quite like a human except for his head and long neck. He has amazing agility despite its form. Power alone is extremely difficult since he was set early, but he is a very cool bakugan. I have a single glotronoid that was bought for $5.01 on ebay although you may e able to get them for less but in general it is costly due to its glowing feature. Glotronoid only comes in Subterra brown and Ventus green from what I know. However the detail (light up part) is usually a different color. If you get a sub-terra, the translucent part is red, if green, this part is clear. Luckily, he has no manual-open parts, which is very convenient.

Ventus GlotronoidGlotronoid is seen in a few episodes, but there is only one episode when Glotronoid does it in a battle. For example, in the first episode of Gundalian, an unknown kid used him in a very short battle with someone else. In episode 5, a girl used Glotronoid alongside another boy’s Subterra Snapzoid. We don’t know who won though. Glotronoid didn’t use abilities either, making him a mysterious and a not well researched bakugan. Overall, there is very little known about this bakugan. Currently, the episodes he is seen in are episodes 1, 2, 5, 12, and 14. Glotronoid’s natural offences are the retractable spine blades that are used in many abilities. He also has the ability to produce poisonous fog, blinding rays, and forces his opponents to fight against each other. Glotronoid cannot fight with battle gear since he has no pegs, but has the powers of one and a bakugan combined. Although it is true that Glotronoid is considered a secondary bakugan, he makes a great addition to the Gundalian army.

Sub-terra Glotronoid 750GGlotronoid has a large wingspan due to the two translucent blades that stick out of each. The overall body is round, the head and neck stretch out and reveal a hidden red or clear strip. This is where the light source is. The head alone is very flat and un-detailed, and the neck has a curve outwards. Even though the bakugan has feet, they do not have to be opened manually, because they naturally pop out when the wings open. However, it gives trouble when closing the bakugan. Glotronoid always has a tab on his back that you need a screwdriver to open. I do know Glotronoid requires 2 of the same battery (like median size watch battery) to function properly. The G-power is often around or exactly 750, so he is very powerful. You can see most of the mechanical parts at the side. I like Glotronoid very much and strongly recommend it to everyone's collection.

Jumping Skyress

Skyress is an old bakugan, yet it is still very popular due to the fact that it is no longer sold in stores. It was one of the most powerful bakugans to exist during her time. Skyress is one of the few bakugans to be female, and has superior agility. A well known fact about her is the ability to jump when getting rolled. If you look for the flat circle with arrows near the magnet, you have to balance Skyress on this. After preparing the bakugan in this form, flick Skyress forward and it will jump, that is why Skyress is widely called Jumping Skyress. According to Baku wiki, Skyress only has two evolutions. Many believe that there is a “Jumping Skyress” that is different than the original Skyress, but actually the regular Skyress has the exact same features and they are the same. Except for translucent and dual color, this bakugan can come in all colors including pearl. Skyress has never lost once, which proves that she is very powerful, despite the fact that her abilities have small effect and her G-power usually goes no higher than 400 or 500G’s. Skyress evolves into Storm Skyress. Her most powerful ability is Green Nobility Violent Wind, which doubles her power level. Skyress can be found in size B2 as well, but did not play a major role in battling because of her strength. G-power in B2 size goes higher than 500.

Skyress participated in relatively few battles, but in some episodes such as 15, and 13, Skyress’ powers become legendary. Skyress bears a striking ability to resurrect herself after being defeated, which accompanies her in several occasions. In episode 13, Shun teams up with Masquerade to battle Dan. Skyress battles at the end turning against Masquerade, and helps divert attention to Hydranoid as Drago defeats him with a “burning dragon” attack. After Masquerade disappears, Shun battles Dan. Drago leads with “fire tornado”. Skyress dodges his attack easily and flips Drago over at the same time. Skyress then uses her most powerful ability:”green nobility violent wind” and defeats drago with a clean blow. In episode 15, skyress battles alongside gorem, but takes on harpus alone. Gorem blocks an attack from Harpus, and then skyress defeats her with her most powerful ability. This is the end of the battle. It shows that Skyress is a very powerful bakugan.

Skyress has a simple form with basic parts such as neck, feet, wings, and a very short tail. Skyress can be found in size B-2, other than that, Skyress doesn’t have a wide variety of forms and variations, but they are available in many colors. There is also known to be a pearl Skyress in existence. Something else to have in mind, is that normal rolling is a bit difficult because of a small “horn” that will pop out very easily. This is supposed to make the Skyress jump, so normally you should start a game without rolling Skyress. This ability allows the player to jump over other bakugans. Skyress’ physical features are simple and standard sharing the same structure as Drago. Separate sections such as the neck, are thick and short, with a horn sticking out. The wings face rearward, and have a triangular shape. These bakugans are commonly between 400Gs and 500Gs in stores, but you will find others that were reprinted or custom made. In all Skyress, there are 2 colors, one for the details, and the other for the body. Skyress is a great bakugan, but I personally don’t feel it’s that special without a high G-power, especially when it is in smaller season 1 size. You can get it on ebay for above $10, some cost more than $20 or even $40 on Amazon.
