Summary[]

Plot[]

Runo and Marucho decide that the combined power of the Brawlers won't be enough to defeat Masquerade, so they decide to try to recruit Dan's old friend Shun. They go to Shun's dojo behind Dan's back to find Shun. When they get there, Shun's Grandfather sends them away, saying Shun doesn't brawl anymore. On their way back to Marucho's ship, Shun challenges them to a battle with a few conditions. If they win, he will join them, but if he wins, they leave. Surprisingly, Shun decides to take them both on, unleashing his Ventus Skyress on them. In the end, Runo and Marucho lost to him.

Major events[]

  • Marucho and Runo try to recruit Shun back to the Brawlers due to the newly-increased stakes of Bakugan battles.
  • Shun initially declines Runo and Marucho's offer, but later decides that if they beat him, he will join them.
  • Shun battles Runo and Marucho and wins, and therefore does not rejoin the Brawlers.

Featured Brawls[]

Battle at the Pier[]

Round ?[]

Most of this battle takes place off-screen with a possible set Doom Card. During the battle, Drago was seen battling a Ventus Gargonoid using a whirlwind-like attack with Drago possibly losing...

Conclusion[]

The winner is Dan Kuso. Reality returns and the Bakugan field collapses. Dan appears to have won the battle as the opponent is seen jumping into a boat and speeding away. It is unknown if Dan lost any Bakugan to the Doom Dimension. Dan remembers beating the Ventus brawler but not how.

Runo throws out Haos Tigrerra onto her newly set Gate Card. (Power: 340 Gs)

Runo opens her Gate Card Haos Normal: +100 Gs. (Tigrerra: 440 Gs)

Shun throws out Ventus Skyress against Tigrerra. (Power: 360 Gs)

Shun activates Winds of Fury, reducing the opponent by 50 Gs for each additional Ventus Bakugan on the field (Falconeer and Ravenoid) and also defeating all of the opponent's Bakugan on the field if their Power Levels are lower than Skyress'. (Skyress: 360 Gs - Tigrerra: 340 Gs) (Skyress: 360 Gs - Limulus: 320 Gs) (Skyress: 360 Gs - Saurus: 310 Gs). Tigrerra gets wiped out by Skyress' aerial attack and returns to Runo in ball form.

Round 3[]
  • Runo's BR: 1/3 ~ Shun's BR: 3/3 ~ Marucho's BR: 1/3

Bakugan remaining on the field: Shun's Falconeer and Ravenoid

Marucho throws in Aquos Preyas against Falconeer. (Power: 300 Gs)

Shun opens his Gate Card Positive Delta. (Falconeer: 320 Gs - Aquos Preyas: 100 Gs)

Preyas activates his Change of Attribute (aka Preyas Switch) and changes from Aquos into Darkus, causing Shun's Positive Delta to backfire. (Darkus Preyas: 300 - Falconeer: 120 Gs).

Marucho explains that Shun's Positive Delta allows him to reduce the opponent's Power Level by 200 Gs if they are using a Bakugan with either Aquos, Haos, or Pyrus attributes, but because Preyas changed his attribute into Darkus, it backfired and caused Falconeer to lose 200 Gs since the effect reverses if the opponent uses a Bakugan with either Ventus, Subterra, or Darkus attributes.

Falconeer gets wiped out by Darkus Preyas' leaping punch attack and returns to Shun in ball form. Preyas returns to Marucho in ball form. Shun's second Gate Card vanishes.

Shun's Bakugan Remaining: 2/3

Marucho wins this round.

Round 4[]
  • Runo's BR: 1/3 ~ Shun's BR: 2/3 ~ Marucho's BR: 1/3

Bakugan remaining on the field: Shun's Ravenoid

Shun set his final Gate Card in front of Runo's second Gate Card.

Shun throws out Ventus Skyress onto his newly set Gate Card. (Power: 360 Gs)

Runo throws out Haos Griffon against Ravenoid. (Power: 290 Gs)

Runo activates Venomous Beast Torrent Attack, which swaps Griffon with a Bakugan that has already been defeated. This allows Tigrerra to replace Griffon in battle. Griffon returns to Runo in ball form as Haos Tigrerra is launched. (Tigrerra: 340 Gs - Ravenoid: 320 Gs). Ravenoid gets wiped out by Tigrerra's slashing attack and returns to Shun in ball form. Tigrerra returns to Runo in ball form. Shun's first Gate Card vanishes.

Shun's Bakugan Remaining: 1/3

Runo wins this round.

Runo activates Savage Air (aka Cut-in Saber) and throws in Haos Tigrerra against Skyress. (Power: 340) (Preyas & Tigrerra: 740 Gs - Skyress: 360 Gs)

Shun opens his Gate Card (Skyress Character), doubling her Power Level. (Preyas & Tigrerra: 740 Gs - Skyress: 720 Gs)

Shun activates Fire Storm on Skyress, which normally increases her Power Level by 100 Gs, but because her Character Card was activated, the effect doubles, which increases her Power Level by 200 Gs instead. (Skyress: 920 Gs - Preyas & Tigrerra: 740 Gs). Preyas and Tigrerra both get wiped out by Skyress' aerial attack. Preyas returns to Marucho and Tigrerra returns to Runo, both in ball forms. Skyress returns to Shun in ball form. Shun's final Gate Card vanishes. Reality returns to normal as the Bakugan field collapses.

Trivia[]

In the episode[]

  • This is the only time a brawler wins outnumbered 2 to 1.

Background[]

English dub changes[]

  • In the beginning of the episode, when discussing the idea of Shun joining the Brawlers, Runo mentions in the Japanese version that she would like to have a Ventus partner in order to be able to use the Ventus-Haos Diagonal Relation ability, and that Shun would probably be more reliable than Dan. In the English version, this is changed to her just saying that he would be a strong ally and that Shun was also quite hot.
