Gus has long, wavy blue hair and green eyes. He has an orange jacket denoting his status as a Subterra brawler, and wears standard Vestal attire underneath. He has tall brown boots and black fingerless gloves.
Gus is a strong brawler and faithful to Spectra, believing that Spectra has the answer to all that has been happening and is willing to follow him no matter what. Gus also tries to look out for Spectra whenever possible; when Spectra decided to bring Mira to the Vexos, as he thought that this plan would backfire on them, which it did.
He revealed that he used to be a normal brawler, and even faced off against Spectra. After losing, however, he pledged his loyalty. He is shown animosity from other Vexos battlers, namely Lync and Mylene, as "Spectra's little pet" and "Spectra's little lapdog." Mira introduces him to Dan as a "weasel, but the top Subterra brawler and a tough opponent." He hates Earth and Prince Hydron, but is fascinated by products on Earth, most notoriously "juice in a box". He calls Apollonir an "old thing" and a "hand me down Bakugan". After entering mother palace with Spectra, he called Zenoheld an "old man".
Gus first appeared alongside the other Vexos, watching the Bakugan be captured. He is later shown in Facing Ace talking to Hydron with the Vexos.
In Taste of Defeat, Gus goes out to defeat Dan Kuso after the other members have failed to do so. Once Gus locates Dan, he uses psychological warfare to cause Dan to doubt himself and his actions. After he reveals his identity, he defeats Dan in a brawl due to Vulcans power. Spectra congratulates Gus on his victory, much to the other's jealousy. Despite this, Hydron remains unhappy due to not having Drago, so Gus deicides to battle Dan again to get Drago and make Spectra proud.
In Return of a Friend, Gus sends a message to Dan via hologram, challenging him to a rematch. Dan sneaks away for a rematch with Gus, only to discover that Spectra would also participate in the battle due to being interested in Drago's Power. Dan beats Gus and Spectra with Shun who joined the brawl.
In What's the Plan? he appears with the Vexos as a superstar he is known as the Relentless Gus. After the show is over he asks the guards what they have to report. They say fans snuck backstage causing Spectra to be suspicious. Gus checks but the Resistance escapes before he found them.
In Surprise Visitor He and Spectra are showing talking to Clay Fermin about Gate cards falling from the sky. Clay says that someone is trying to get into the human world. They find out it is Runo Misaki trying to enter New Vestroia. Spectra and Gus head to the portal to go to earth and are followed by Lync Volan.
In Gate Crashers, After the Vexos arrive on Earth, he annoys Gus to the point that Gus challenges Lync to a brawl, but Baron and Mira intervene, causing Gus to run away with Mira in pursuit. Gus later tells Dan about Prince Hydron and how he is Dan's real villain. Spectra revealing that he is actually against Prince Hydron's rule and wants to team up with Dan to take him down. In a show of goodwill, he released Runo. Mira's suspicion of Spectra being her brother Keith only rose because of this action, as she believed that he infiltrated the Vexos to free the Bakugan. However, it is learned that Spectra and Gus only wanted to take down Hydron so that Spectra could succeed in the role of the ruler of the Vestals. Meanwhile, Dan refused to believe Spectra's intentions, and Alice Gehabich soon warped in using Masquerade's warp card. She took Spectra, Gus, and Dan back to the lab, where Dr. Michael sent Spectra and Gus back to New Vestroia.
In Unmasked, Gus and Spectra have already made their way back to the brawlers' location, and are seen riding the Gondola Wheel in the amusement park. When Mira challenges Spectra in order to find out if he was her brother, Keith, Gus twists the deal so that he would brawl in Spectra's stead. If Gus lost, Spectra would unmask himself; if Gus won, Mira would join the Vexos. Gus had the advantage until Julie Makimoto, the "original" Subterra master, gave Mira tips on how to win. Although Gus urges Spectra not to reveal himself, Spectra ignores his pleads and does so anyways.
He is later seen living in a warehouse with Spectra in Show Me the Power!, He urges Spectra to battle against Dan his masters side although Spectra declines. After Dan challenges Spectra to get Drago back, Gus taunts him saying he won't win although is later proven wrong. However, Spectra did not seem to be angered at the loss, saying to Gus that he had collected all of the data he needed from Drago, which he later used to create Cyborg Helios. Spectra later convinced Mira to join the Vexos have Lync join them and had Gus trap Dan and the others in an electrical cage so they would not go back to New Vestroia. Unfortunately for Gus, they escaped and took Dr. Michael Gehabich's Dimension Portal.
Once the Resistance and the Vexos make it back to New Vestroia, Gus taunts the others saying how they used one of the Six Ancient Warriors to return although Volt doesn't believe him. He later watches Mylene and Shadow battle Dan and Baron Leltoy. When Nemus gets taken down by Hades Gus gets surprised. After Mylene loses Gus says she lost so she shouldn't be blaming Spectra. Gus keeps a close watch on Mira, as he doesn't trust her and lets Spectra know telling her a lot of their plan was unwise. Once the brawlers get to Gamma City, Dan, and Ace Grit face off against Gus and Mira. Spectra beforehand had Gus and Mira take the Bakugan that were being developed for Prince Hydron to test for himself. However, due to Mira purposely throwing the match, Gus and Mira lose, all six of the Bakugan are captured, and the last Dimension Controller is destroyed. Gus reports the loss to Spectra who has plans of his own for Mira.
In Final Countdown, Gus then overhears the other Vexos planning on betraying Spectra and taking Professor Clay with them. Gus goes to Lync, having him go to Spectra for him, Lync double-crosses him, knocking him out and locking him up in a room.
Later, when Spectra is brawling Dan, Gus finds Elico and Mega Brontes, only to be "thrown out like the trash" by Mylene Farrow because she does not think that it is wise to have a weapon with feelings. Gus then rides Premo Vulcan and saves Spectra after his fight with Dan. He also regrets to inform him that Mylene is intending to blame the whole thing on him.
In Spectra Rises, he had betrayed the Vexos and works with Spectra. He has also made Premo Vulcan, Mega Brontes and Elico evolve due to Chaos Ability X. He also taunts Volt saying that Brontes lost his soul while Spectra fights Dan, Mira, and Marucho.
In Shadow Attack he helps Spectra set up a network for him to appear on Tv where he announces that he is trying to stop Zenoheld.
In Brontes' Betrayal, Volt calls him asking Gus to battle him for Alto Brontes. Spectra tells Gus he should battle Volt since he might join them if he wants Brontes badly enough. Later he faces Volt and wins after a long fight, but after the battle he throws Brontes back into New Vestroia saying that, "You have served your purpose, but now I am done with you".
In All Or Nothing he lets Spectra know that the Vexos have found the Brawlers location and are going after the remaining attribute energies. Spectra, however, sees this as a good thing and has Gus send Dan to his ship where the two of them battle. After Dan defeats Spectra in a battle, Spectra and Gus agree to accompany the Resistance to the Vexos' palace.
In Avenging Spectra, Spectra and Gus arrive on the Mother Palace along with the Resistance and confront the Vexos. He then challenges Zenoheld after the Vexos insult and accuse Spectra. He loses at the end of the episode, and he presumably lost his life, along with Rex Vulcan. Blast Elico and Hexados however actually died trying to protect him and Vulcan. His last words were to Spectra and wishing him fare well. In the end he apparently learned what Dan had tried to tell him from their first encounter about how much friendship matters because when King Zenoheld told him their battle would cost him everything Gus laughed and said: "No matter what happens you'll never take away the bond of loyalty and friendship that I share with Master Spectra!" and he was greatly upset when Blast Elico and Hexados were destroyed and when Rex Vulcan's armor was cracked, not to mention he apparently grew a giant bond of friendship with Vulcan in the end of the episode. Rex Vulcan and Gus are still alive but in Zenoheld's jail.
At the end of An Heir To Spare, it is revealed that Gus and Vulcan, survived the battle with Zenoheld and has been imprisoned since then. His cell was located across from Prince Hydron's, and he manages to overhear Hydron vowing to bring down his father.
In Ultimate Weapon, he tricks Hydron into starting a brawl inside the cells and breaking the cells. Gus rejoins Spectra to help fight against King Zenoheld and Farbros. The two do well together, but when Zenoheld merges with the Alternative Weapon System things look grim for them.
In All for One, he watches the arrival of the Bakugan Battle Brawlers. When Spectra says that they are on the same side now, Gus says that he never thought he would live to see the day that they joined forces, but at the same time he was glad that they did, since he was almost killed by Zenoheld.
In Final Fury, he fights the Pyrus Fortresses to give the brawlers time to get into the Alternative. Just as he was about to go down, Hydron saved him and he evacuated with the other brawlers. After the Alternative explodes, he joins the Resistance, says farewell to them, and returns to Vestal with Spectra.
He appeared in The Final Takedown battling the Chaos Bakugan and using Rex Vulcan. He and Spectra beat them all while the rest of the Brawlers (minus Dan) beat the Razen Titans. Once the world is saved he is seen congratulating Dan and Drago then and returns to Vestal with Spectra.
