Dartaak Trap Bakugan

Ventus Green DartaakDartaak is possibly the most unique bakugan trap conquered in New Vistroia. Although he was not known to have appeared, he is battle-ready and possesses a special ability to split in two when opened. The front of Dartaak shoots out like a bullet. Some may have guessed already, that the trap is very well capable of knocking out an unstable bakugan or battle gear from any confrontation. His main attribute is surprisingly unknown, probably Ventus due to the lack of proper knowledge about him. He has a humanoid form with protective armor and large sealed arms. His shoulders carry two spikes. He can actually shoot a living bullet out of his chest and his agility is legendary. This gives him a huge advantage in combat. Dartaak is a G-power trap that can add up to 900gs to another bakugan. Dartaak belongs to the collection of Dragonoid trap bakugan as shown of bakugan wiki. On the old Vestroia’s trap posters, the bakugan Dartaak was named instead of “Dart Dragonoid”. He can also add both G-powers on the game pieces. If you roll a Dartaak and it lands on your opponents gate card, you can add both G’s. If it lands on your own gate card, you can only add the G-power on the piece that stays behind.

Haos Gray DartaakThe part that shoots the secondary trap looks similar to Wilda. The secondary trap contains a single body consisting of a pair of long wings, and a neck and head. It is laid flat on it’s base and contains 3 small wheels that allow its body to slide on the battle field. Two of these wheels are located on its neck and main territory. There is a peg located behind it which is used to cause the event of movement. It must be inserted into the larger game piece to be launched in a game. When opened, the head piece can shoot out at a fast speed, may be traveling as far as 16 inches. Enemies in front of it can easily be knocked down (It is harder if the enemy is on a gate card though). It has been seen in Aquos, Darkus, Haos, Ventus only, there are no translucent or other special colors. Most Dartaaks you will find are in very good shape and quality.

Darkus DartaakThe smaller piece has a much smaller G-power. It can range from 40, to 90, but it doesn’t really depend on the attribute of the existing bakugan. I’ve seen an Aquos Dartaak with 860G’s, and another with 1300G’s, though mostly it's seen in 650 and 50G; Darkus one is seen in 680G + 70G and 900G + 40G; green Ventus Dartaak has been made available in 780G + 70G and 860G + 40G; I've only seen Haos one in 700G + 90G, though it is possible that is might be also available in other G combination since all other attributes are. Anyway, the total G-power can range from 700 to 1300. If you are looking for adding more varieties to your bakugan collection, I would definitely recommend buying this bakugan toy.

Mantris Bakugan

Pearl Mantris 420GMantris is by far one of the most interesting bakugan relative to the earlier bakugan. As some might have guessed, Mantris looks like the praying mantis in the real world. He has two flicking front arms connected with two joints. However, this feature doesn’t give it a chance of knocking another bakugan off of its gate card. This always results in an automatic win for the roller. However, it is amusing watching it attacks the enemy when opening. On the other hand, Mantris is not very complex and besides the four legs, he has no other features whatsoever. The head is very colorful though. You can find it in purple, red, green, gold, even metallic. And the eyes are always different. The body is always neon, and can be translucent and pearl. My Mantris is 450G’s, but it can go as high as 620. They are very colorful and unique. Furthermore, Mantris is a powerful bakugan. In fact, one of his abilities, Marionette, was featured on a real life ability card, only any bakugan can use it, not just Mantris.

420G Pyrus MantrisMantris was seen in episode one, where he battled Dan and a Pyrus Serpenoid. Although at first Serpenoid was prevailing, the opponent opened up a Subterra gate card which increased his power level by 100G’s. Then Mantris defeated Serpenoid. In the show, Mantris appeared many times in battles, so over time their power went from 290, to 390G’s. Also, in episode 36, Masquerade made his first move by sending the opponents Darkus Centipoid to another gate card. After that, he battled Exedra by doubling his power level with a gate character card. Unfortunately, Alice used “Demon Wizard” that canceled his character and used Wormquake's power to add to his. Therefore, Mantris lost. But I still believe that he is a very powerful bakugan. The bakugan has five abilities named Twin Machete, Sling Blazer, Marionette, Slice Cutter, and Doom Companion. These cards make him very strong in battle.

Mantris Bakugan Features
530G Subterra Mantris550G Aquos MantrisThe most recognizable feature in Mantris is the two front arms that extend forward to attack. This makes Mantris looks quite fierce. They are needed to be folded in in order to close the bakugan. Mantris also has a long thick neck and an arachnid head. His eyes are large and this color is always different from the body. Unlike most bakugan, Mantris has four small legs you have to pop out in order for it to stand up properly. The rest of the body is simple and the design is not very special. However, they come in all different colors you probably would not find from any other bakugan. I know that Mantris’ color variation is very specific. A brown Subterra Mantris has a gold head and green eyes along with darker brown marks on the body; a blue Aquos Mantris has a red head and green eyes mixed with green marks on the body; a green Ventus Mantris has a purple head with yellow eyes, the marks on the body is also green, but darker and glitters; a gray Haos one has a blue head with red eyes and golden body marks; a black Darkus Mantris has a green head with red eyes and purple body marks; a red Pyrus Mantris is more exciting, since it has a silver head that resembles metal, the eyes are black and body marks are printed golden red; a pearl Mantris has a green head with red eyes, and the marks on the body are in dark green. If you have a translucent one, most likely it is a lime green. Out of all the color variations, I personally feel the most exciting ones are Pyrus, Darkus, and Pearl; the lime green translucent one may sound and look interesting in picture, but it is really not that exciting in person. The main reason is the material is more like opaque and foggy; it was not made clear, which is disappointing. To me, other colors are not that appealing. When I got my own Aquos Mantris, I felt somewhat disappointed. If you are a collector and loves Mantris in particular, then I’d say get them all; otherwise, I would recommend to buy red, black, and pearl if you have to pay for high prices.

Piercian Trap Bakugan

Subterra PiercianAlthough highly unusual, Piercian is another bakugan trap with the same exact features as its form in amine. He is an old bakugan released about the same time it appeared in episode 11. It has a strange square shape to the body and feet. Surprisingly, the marks all over its body resemble bricks. His large mass and stable shield on each arm seems to give him extra protection and has four main attributes. If you are wondering where the fourth attribute is, you can find it on the lever that separates the body, and base/feet. They can vary along with color, which can be white, brown, blue, and green. Unfortunately, he is a trap and does not come in any special color like translucent and pearl. You can sometimes get Piercian very cheap at eBay. Likely he will help in battle and most of the time he will open correctly and efficiently. All you find are good quality and probably look new; they do not have any g-power and have very precise detailing especially on the arms, face, and chest. Piercian is rather slow; however, his foundation is large and strong, made with material cells, so he should be used as backup in battle. His ability cards are very powerful and effective.

Pyrus PiercianIn quite a few battles, Peircian is victorious with the help of another bakugan. In episode 11, Peircian battles alongside Nemus and Altair and Wired are defeated, taking a large sum of their life gage. He also battles in episode 23. Like usual, Piercian combines with Nemus’s ability to take down both Brontes and Dynamo with one attack. Alone, though, he is not very successful. You can also see him battle in other even episodes like 26, 38, and 43. He has 5 abilities: Haos bunker, Tank bunker, Soliton defender, Electrocution, and Eternal cocoon. He often counts on a member from another team to increase the chance of having a successful attack in combat, and defense. In one episode (28), Peircian wasn’t capable of defeating Prince Hydron and Dryoid. Nemus’s attribute energy was taken away and Baron was defeated. Therefore proving that Peircian may not be so powerful compared to other bakugan traps. But he is relatively strong and has a large amount of force.

Ventus PiercianPeircian has a relative structure of Nemus. The top half of his body in supported by a small joint connected to the feet. It is flexible like Nemus and Bronte’s. The base is a flat formed pad that creates a secure plate on the ground. You can see the bricks on Peircian's body and he has two small hands and arms, mostly covered by two golden shields. His face has lots of detail, but rather small. Peircian is only equipped with light reflectors, and blinding rays. Although his main attribute is Haos, he can change to any other attribute in battle as long as it is featured somewhere on him. Also, he is very warrior-like and stands higher than most bakugan. His design is rather complex, and the bricks that make up his body are very visible, it is so pleasing to the eyes that I personally like it a lot. He is also easy to close and open, although he might fall due to his standard form. There are also no manual parts to open which is a plus to a bakugan. Overall, Peircian is a very powerful and resourceful bakugan to have in a force. However, this completely affects his agility. I would strongly recommend this bakugan to anyone due to its uniqueness.

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.

Avior Bakugan

740G Haos Avior BakuganAvior bakugan is a unique bakugan that was released during season 3 as part of Wrens side’s bakugan and has only gotten more popular for his power and physical appearance since his arrival. Avior has surprisingly only 2 legs and no arms, which makes him different from other bakugans. Another interesting thing about Avior is that 2 of his abilities: Long Achilles and Battle Howling extends his body in both ball form and in anime. This gives him even more power and maneuverability. He works for Wrens team and has very superior power. In the show, he is 900G’s, but in real life, it is usually between 600 and 800G’s. His battle gear is Lashor, so if you have this battle gear it makes Avior more valuable. Although currently he is considered common, he is still really worth getting and comes in great mixed colors.

620G Darkus Avior BakuganAvior has been seen in a few gundalian episodes such as 4 and 8. In episode 4, Mason Brown, (a member of Wrens team), battled a unknown spectator and won easily with a few cards and beat him in the last round with Long Achilles, possibly his most powerful ability. He also defeated Jake with Subterra Coredom. In total, Avior has 6 abilities. (Go to Bakugan Wiki). In episode 8, Mason used Aviors battle gear Lashor, and still lost against his opponent, revealing he isn’t that powerful. In fact, Avior is the oldest bakugan existing in Gudalian.

630G Pyrus Avior BakuganAvior’s body is like a chicken (no offence). In ball form though, he has 2 legs, up-facing wings, and a tail. Aviors neck can be extended when using Long Achilles and is also crucial when putting on battle gear. Doing this is easy, because you just have to flip down the tail when he is opened. In this stage, you have to place it one a card for it to stand up. You can see the features and details on the neck and wings. It also has wings, but they can only be seen when opened in anime. Avior is easy to close. After making sure he is no longer extended, flip in the head, and then the wings. Finally, clip in the tail, but it might take a little strength to do this part. The rest of the body; feet, horn, etc, closes like any other bakugans. Overall, Avior is a great bakugan and is very cool. I would definitely recommend buying him.
