Masquerade Ball (Japanese Version: The Man Who Summoned A Storm (嵐を呼ぶ男, Arashi wo yobu otoko?)) is the second episode of Bakugan Battle Brawlers. It first aired in Japan on April 12, 2007 on TV Tokyo, in Canada on July 15, 2007 on Teletoon and the United States on February 24, 2008 on Cartoon Network.




A very gifted and infamous Bakugan player, known as Masquerade, has been taking Bakugan from kids worldwide, including Runo Misaki (who blames Dan Kuso for her loss) using only his Reaper. When Dan hears about this from his friends on the web, he decides to stop it and challenges Masquerade to a battle. The two meet up, and the fight is on! But Masquerade has a Doom Card secret, which sends its opponent's Bakugan to the Doom Dimension. Masquerade leaves Dan behind after the brawl is over. In doing so, Dan realizes that his Dragonoid and his other Bakugan could have been sent to the Doom Dimension.

Major events[]

  • A masked brawler named Masquerade shows up and begins defeating kids' Bakugan and sending them to the Doom Dimension after rising to the #1 ranking in the world.
  • Dan battles Shuji again and wins.
  • Dan battles Masquerade for the first time and ends it in a tie.
  • Masquerade sends two of Dan's Bakugan to the Doom Dimension but chooses to spare Drago.

Featured Brawls[]

Battle at the Playground[]

  • Runo VS Masquerade

This entire brawl happens off-screen. The only things we know for sure about it are that:

Battle Under Railroad Bridge[]

Most of this brawl also happens off-screen. We know that Dan defeats a Ventus Robotallion and Ventus Gargonoid of Shuji's. And that Shuji beats at least one of Dan's Bakugan this brawl.

Round 4[]
  • Dan's Victories: 2/3 ~ Dan's HSP: 600
  • Shuji's Victories: 1/3 ~ Shuji's HSP: 200

On the battlefield are Dan's Pyrus Serpenoid (320 Gs) and 2 Gate Cards whose owner(s) are unknown at the time.

Dan throws out Drago onto an empty Gate Card. (Power: 340 Gs)

Dan activates Fire Wall.

Shuji throws out Ventus Falconeer against Pyrus Serpenoid. (Power: 300 Gs)

Shuji activates Jump Over to move over to Drago's card and then activates Correlation between Ventus and Pyrus. (Falconeer: 400 Gs)

Mysteriously, Drago gains the upper-hand possibly due to Fire Wall. But even with its effect active, Drago would still be 10 Gs short of victory. Drago would have needed to boost the power of Fire Wall in some way for this victory, but it is unrevealed how this is done. Nevertheless, Falconeer gets wiped out by Drago's squeezing firewall attack.

Dan's Victories: 3/3 ~ Dan's HSP gained: 200

Dan wins this round.

  • Dan's Victories: 3/3 ~ Dan's HSP: 800
  • Shuji's Victories: 1/3 ~ Shuji's HSP: 200

The winner is Dan Kuso.

Second Battle Under Railroad Bridge[]

Dan and Masquerade both activate the Bakugan field as reality slows to a halt.

Round 1[]
  • Dan's Victories: 0/3 ~ Dan's HSP: 0
  • Masquerade's Victories: 0/3 ~ Masquerade's HSP: 0

Dan and Masquerade both throw out their Gate Cards against each other.

Masquerade sets a Doom Card onto the field.

Dan throws out Pyrus Serpenoid onto his own Gate Card. (Power: 320 Gs)

Masquerade throws out Darkus Reaper against Serpenoid. (Power: 370 Gs)

Dan opens his Gate Card (Pyrus Normal: +300 Gs). (Serpenoid: 620 Gs - Reaper: 370 Gs)

Masquerade counters by activating Dimension Four, which cancels the opponent's, Gate Card. (Reaper: 370 Gs - Serpenoid: 320 Gs). Serpenoid gets wiped out by Reaper's scythe attack and is sent to the Doom Dimension. Reaper returns to Masquerade in ball form. Dan's first Gate Card vanishes.

Masquerade's Victories: 1/3 ~ Masquerade's HSP gained: 300

Masquerade wins this round.

Round 2[]
  • Dan's Victories: 0/3 ~ Dan's HSP: 0
  • Masquerade's Victories: 1/3 ~ Masquerade's HSP: 300

Dan throws out Pyrus Saurus onto Masquerade's first Gate Card. (Power: 280 Gs)

Masquerade throws out Darkus Reaper against Saurus. (Power: 370 Gs)

Dan activates Saurus Glow on Saurus, increasing his Power Level by 50 Gs. (Reaper: 370 Gs - Saurus: 330 Gs)

Masquerade activates Double Dimension, nullifying the opponent's Ability Card. Saurus gets wiped out by Reaper's scythe attack and is sent to the Doom Dimension. Reaper returns to Masquerade in ball form. Dan's second Gate Card vanishes.

Masquerade's Victories: 2/3 ~ Masquerade's HSP gained: 200

Masquerade wins this round.

Round 3[]
  • Dan's Victories: 0/3
  • Dan's HSP: 0
  • Masquerade's Victories: 2/3
  • Masquerade's HSP: 500

Dan sets his second Gate Card in front of Masquerade.

Dan throws out Pyrus Drago onto his newly set Gate Card. (Power: 340 Gs)

Masquerade throws out Darkus Reaper against Drago. (Power: 370 Gs)

Dan opens his Gate Card (Character) (Fire Storm in the dub). (Drago: 680 Gs - Reaper: 370 Gs)

Drago activates Boosted Ultima (Ultimate Boost in the dub) on himself. (Drago: 1080 Gs (screen statics out at 950 Gs) - Reaper: 170 Gs). Before Reaper can get wiped out, the battlefield is destroyed due to Drago's sudden power boost.


The battlefield is destroyed and the battle ends in a TIE.


Animation Trivia[]

  • During Masquerade and Dan's battle, after Saurus is sent to the Doom Dimension, there appears to be another Gate Card set on the field, when neither player had set another Gate Card.
    • It's possible that it could be due to an animation error, as Dan later sends out another Gate Card so that Drago and Reaper could fight on it.
