Gate Crashers is the 11th episode of Bakugan: New Vestroia. It aired on July 18, 2009.
Dan Kuso, Runo Misaki, Mira Fermin, and Baron Leltoy make it to Earth, but pick up some unwanted visitors, embodied in Spectra Phantom, Gus Grav, and Lync Volan. Marucho Marukura manages to defeat Shadow Prove and he, Shun Kazami and Ace Grit decide to take out the Beta City controller to pass the time. Before Spectra takes his leave, he grabs Runo as a hostage, and offers Dan an ultimatum: join the Vexos or risk Runo's safety. Dan, Baron, Mira and Julie Makimoto split up, and Dan and Julie run into Spectra and Runo. Mira chases after Gus to find Spectra, and Baron fights Lync. Spectra reveals that he is actually against Prince Hydron's rule and that he wants to team up with Dan to take him down and in a show of good will, releases Runo. Mira's suspicion of Spectra being Keith Fermin (her missing brother) only rise, as she believes that he infiltrated the Vexos to free the Bakugan. After Baron defeats Lync, it is revealed that Spectra and Gus only want to take down Hydron, so that Spectra can become the ruler of the Vestals. Meanwhile, Dan refuses to believe Spectra's intentions and before anything happens, Alice Gehabich warps in using Masquerade's warp card. She takes Spectra and Gus (and Dan) back to the lab, where Doctor Michael sends the villains back to New Vestroia. Unfortunately, the transporter must be repaired before another trip can be made. So Dan takes his friends to his house for the meantime. Lync crashes in, but refuses Dan's hospitality, but accepts Alice's due to his hunger after their ride leaves. Alice doesn't like him one bit and tells him that when the transporter is repaired, he is "so gone". Before the end, Lync is seen crying after Alice leaves him some food.

Bakugan Trap Debuts
Bakugan Trap Seen
- The part when Spectra held Runo hostage in the outdoors was extended in the Japanese version. Runo even yelled out "Let me go!".
- Despite Spectra, Gus, and Lync entering the dimension gate first in Surprise Visitor, they emerged from it after the others at the start of this episode.
- After Baron activates the Sparkly Arrow ability, scene where Altair's power level is reduced from 1500 to 750 due to Baron's previous ability is replayed, making it seem as though Baron somehow won even though he was only ahead by 250 points. In actuality, the Sparkly Arrow ability would have further reduced Altair's power level to 0 Gs, which would explain why it was destroyed upon losing.
