Using a green stone in the palm of his hand, Linehalt absorbs and nullifies the attacks of his enemies. He is said to have a 'forbidden power'.

He first appeared battling Helix Dragonoid in Bakugan Interspace. He lost the first round, and gave Drago some trouble in round 2 causing him to win. The overall battle ended in a draw because Marucho had to evacuate and shut down the battle arena because the battle energy was too intense, which would have destroyed the system. He is a real Bakugan, which is proven when at the end of episode 5 he was talking to Ren about the previous battle between Sid and Zenet.
He and Drago face off against Sid and Zenet's Bakugan, Rubanoid and Contestir. He purposely loses both rounds due to Ren's plan to cause Dan to lose. This causes Drago to lose the fight. However Sid doesn't take Drago due to the battle being unfair.
After Ren got exposed as a trader, Linehalt fought the digital Akwimos and Gigarth with Boomix and managed to win the first round by using Ice Crasher on Akwimos, but lost the second, third and the battle due to Gigarth's power. He was then alongside Ren when he changed into his true Gundalian form and revealed to the brawlers his true identity as a talking Bakugan which shocks Jake while telling Drago that he's next.
He retold the story of how he was the last of his kind, the Dark Bakugan, who were banished to the underground of Gundalia. It is where he met Ren as he was meant to be the next protector of Linehalt. He was against the idea of this as Ren was very afraid of Linehalt and it was not till he saved Ren from falling that the two eventually became close friends who bonded while underground. He also revealed that although he has a "Forbidden Power", he has no idea how to use it.
He battled Hawktor and Neo Ziperator alongside Plitheon. He had a brief skirmish with Hawktor. After Plitheon lost in round 1 he used Boomix to attack Neo's shield. He took out Hawktor but Neo took him out with Metal Destruction. In round 2 he and Plitheon put them on the ropes but when Hawktor dogged his blast he lost. but Plitheon won the brawl with his Battle Gear by taking both Hawktor and Neo out.
He battled Coredem and Aranaut alongside Plitheon. Plitheon won the first round by himself. After Coredem gave his partner a hard time he joined the brawl in round 2 and battled Aranaut. Coredem used Rock Hammer to take both him and Plitheon down. In round 3 he and Plitheon use a double attack against the Neathian Bakugan the battle ended up in failure, no matter how hard Ren was brawling.
He battled alongside Sabator against Aranaut and Akwimos. He and Akwimos fight one on one in the first round which he loses. The next round has everyone use their battle gear, but the battle was cut short due to the Sacred Orb getting angry.
He battled alongside Rubanoid against Lumino Dragonoid. At first he just brawled Drago one on one with Boomix, but had trouble with Drago's Explosix Gear. Rubanoid arrived to aid Linehalt, but all Bakugan ended up losing round 1. but lost despite it being 2 on 1.
He continues the battle against Dharak losing round one. In the second round after Barodius taunted him to much he unleashes his Forbidden Power it is revealed that it threatens Neathia and awakens Dragonoid Colossus, the Sacred Orb's last defense, which defeats both Dharak and Linehalt, stopping his rampage but not before he severely damaged the Gundalian forces.
He battled against Aranaut to prove Ren's loyalty to the Neathians. The first round he battled Aranaut but lost due to losing energy from unleashing his Forbidden Power. Second round he switched places with Rubanoid to rest but still ended up losing at the end but was accepted by Fabia and became a member of the Castle Knights.
He retreats from his battle with Krakix and meets up with the rest of his team for a showdown against the Gundalians.
He battles Lumagrowl, Krakix, Strikeflier, and Lythirus alongside Aranaut, Akwimos, Coredem, Hawktor, and Blitz Dragonoid. They win the battle and retreat to Neathia to stop Barodius.
He battled Phantom Dharak, Strikeflier, Lythirus and other Gundalian Bakugan alongside Rubanoid, Phosphos, Plitheon, Raptorix, Contestir, Akwimos, Hawktor, Coredem, Blitz Dragonoid, Dragonoid Colossus and other Neathian Bakugan and was joined later by Sabator, Aranaut and Avior. He and Phosphos defeated some Impalatons with ease. He fought against Phantom Dharak alongside Coredem, Akwimos, Hawktor, and Drago, but was defeated with one hit.
He finally understands what his Forbidden Power should be used for and uses it to heal the battle-damaged Neathia. He also seems to grow angel wings. Later, he says goodbye to Akwimos, Marucho, and the others before he, Nurzak and the rest of the Gundalians head back to Gundalia.
