Billy Gilbert (ビリー・ギルバート, Birî Girubâto?) is a Subterra brawler in the anime Bakugan Battle Brawlers. His Guardian Bakugan is Cycloid.

He is childhood friends with Julie Makimoto (before he became her boyfriend later on in the series) and was the top tenth brawler in the world at the start of the season. Like several of the other top-ranked brawlers, he was brainwashed into becoming Naga's servant and opposes the Battle Brawlers until he is freed from Naga's control (although he does win a Brawl). Afterwards, he joins the Battle Brawlers in opposing Naga.

He makes a brief appearance in Bakugan Battle Brawlers: New Vestroia, brawling against Ace Grit along with Julie and traveling the world.


Billy has long hair like Julie, but his hair color is blonde. Billy also wears a t-shirt and a orange and black jacket along with it that has a lightning bolt on the back, wears black fingerless gloves, and a hat that also has a lightning bolt on it.


Bakugan Battle Brawlers

Billy and Julie as children

Billy debuts as a Subterra player together with Julie, where he defeated Julie with his Cycloid. He was later defeated in a rematch by Julie's Gorem.

He becomes the top tenth brawler in the world before he becomes one of Masquerade's henchmen, when he's exposed to the Silent Core. He reappears as Masquerade's henchman, along with Komba O'Charlie, and battles Julie and Shun Kazami. Although he loses, he isn't freed from the mind-control. As Masquerade's henchman, the others often make fun of him since he is the only one in double-digits and is lower-ranked than the rest of them.

Later, when Julie attempts to bring him back to his senses with a battle, he nearly sends Julie and Gorem to the Doom Dimension, but after seeing the toy cowboy and horse he had given her when they were young, he still defeats her but right before Gorem is sent to the Doom Dimension he takes out the Doom Card. He is then freed from Naga's control and, while the Brawlers take Billy back home to Bakugan Valley in Marucho's private jet, he explains to them how he first met Naga.

During Masquerade's quest to strengthen Hydranoid, Cycloid is sent to the Doom Dimension. However, Cycloid (along with the other Top Brawlers' Bakugan) is later freed and reunites with Billy.

He agrees to help everyone stop Naga's minions, and slows Rabeeder's approach on the city though he couldn't completely stop her. He returns to help Julie and Nene fight Tricloid. After they defeat her, Billy ends up in love with Julie, while Julie feels the same way with him, and starts dating. Afterwards, he helps the rest of the brawlers beat Centorrior and Druman eventually winning. He then gets sad to let Cycloid go after Naga is killed.

Billy and Julie

Billy is first mentioned when Julie says that he was traveling the world to learn from famous athletes, and he was currently living in Spain. He is later mentioned to have moved to Africa to build schools,[1] and finally appears in-person when the Vexos are hunting down the Resistance for the Attribute Energies. He and Julie tag-team against Ace Grit, but are easily defeated. Billy's surprise visit, however, had an unexpected side-effect: it led Mylene Farrow and Shadow Prove right to the brawlers' hide-out.[2]. Later he is seen with the rest of the Bralwers trying to figure out a way to get in the Vexos Motherpalace saying he would be happy to join the team to get rid of the Bakugan Termination System. However before they plan an attack Spectra Phantom and Gus Grav take Dan on the Vestal Destroyer to battle him. After Dan beats Spectra he sends everyone who had an attribute energy to the ship, thus leaving him Runo and Juile behind. After this he is not seen again.


Bakugan Battle Brawlers


  • Billy calls Julie "BakuBabe," which seems to annoy her.
  • Also, Billy is similar to Ash Ketchum from Pokémon: The Series. Both characters wore hats that are not the same as the other, however, and that's true because Billy's hat looks a lot like Ash's Indigo League Expo hat, which Ash wore in the first five seasons of the anime, except, in the Bakugan anime, Billy's hat has a orange, white and black color and also has a picture of a lightning bolt on it, just like the description above says.
  • While Ash Ketchum was played by the voice of Victoria Taylor and Sarah Natochenny in the Pokemon anime, in the English dub of the Bakugan anime, Billy was played by the voice of Bailey Stocker. Also, in the Brazilian Portuguese dub, both Billy and Ash were voiced by Fábio Lucindo.
  • Billy remained as Julie's childhood friend until the end of episode 47, "Here's Mud In Your Eye", where he became her boyfriend after helping her deal with Tricloid.
  • In the Japanese version, just like Julie, Billy speaks with random english phrases due to him being American.
