For the Bakugan in the Battle Planet series, see Hydranoid (Battle Planet).
Very observant, human, for I am the most powerful Bakugan ever. And I have no limit. I feed on the Bakugan that I send to the Doom Dimension, just as I'll feed upon your precious Drago.
Hydranoid to Dan, Just For the Shun of It

Hydranoid (Japanese version: Hydra (ヒュドラ, Hyudora?)) is Masquerade's Guardian Bakugan and later Alice's when he evolved as Alpha Hydranoid in Bakugan Battle Brawlers.



In Hydranoid's un-evolved form he walks on four legs, has three purple teeth jutting out from his upper jaw, and a long neck and tail. It also has pink spines running from the middle of its neck to about the end of its tail, which somewhat resembles the tail of a stegosaurus. In addition to this, he has a large pink horn on its nose and red eyes. It also has the starting of the blade in the center of its chest although it cannot move yet. As he evolves, he gains one more head.

Its entire body is composed of a highly intelligent, independent cell structure. His tail can be a very dangerous weapon along with his bite and power blasts.

Bakugan Official Handbook

Hydranoid is a hulking dragon-like beast with sharp spikes all over its body. It is even more ferocious than it looks. This vicious Bakugan is known for being cruel and merciless in battle. It takes pleasure in pounding opponents with its tail.

Bakugan Ultimate Handbook

Hydranoid's un-evolved form is tough, too. The special cell structure of this Bakugan makes it difficult to injure in battle, and its fighting abilities makes for a formidable attack. Hydranoid's long, spiked tail has sent more than one foe to the Doom Dimension!
