It is based on the insect, the Centipede. It has two pincers that are larger than its head, which can penetrate hard armor. It has two tails that are razor-sharp and antennas that sense predators miles away. It travels underground for sneak attacks and has an unbreakable, exoskeleton shell. It has fifteen pairs of legs.
Bakugan Official Handbook
You may want to bug out when you encounter this scary Bakugan. If the sign of all those legs isn't enough to spook you, this creature's giant pincers will have you running for cover.
Bakugan Ultimate Handbook
Don't think you can squash this creepy-crawly creature with your shoe-Centipoid is one tough Bakugan. Its hard outer skeleton is like armor. It can slash at opponents with its two razorlike pincers and sharp twin tails. Centipoid can sense an enemy that's miles away using its antennae. Then it digs underground and bursts out of the earth to catch its foe by surprise.
Centipoid is a common Bakugan. It has been used by many Brawlers, but mainly Jewls, who has a Subterra Centipoid as her Guardian Bakugan. Billy Gilbert and Akira also have Subterra Centipoids. Chan Lee and Dan both had Pyrus Centipoids. Runo and Julio had their own Haos Centipoids. Kenji and Masquerade both have a Darkus Centipoid and Alice used a Darkus Centipoid (which she was afraid to use at first) in her battle with Klaus.
Another Darkus Centipoid was used by an illusionary Alice in Masquerade's battle with Exedra. An Aquos Centipoid was seen when Marucho's Aquos Hazard changed Jewls' Subterra Centipoid into one, so it could participate in Marucho's Aquos Quadruple Chain Attack.
