Masquerade Ball is the second episode of Bakugan Battle Brawlers. It aired on April 11th, 2007 in Japan and September 4th, 2007 in North America.

Plot

A very gifted and infamous Bakugan player, known as Masquerade, has been taking Bakugan from kids all over the world, including Runo (who blames Dan for her loss) using only his Reaper. When Dan hears about this from his friends on the web, he decides to put a stop to it and challenges Masquerade to a battle. The two meet up, and the fight is on! But Masquerade has a secret called the Doom Card, which sends it's opponent's Bakugan to the Doom Dimension. Masquerade leaves Dan behind after the brawl is over. In doing so, Dan understands the realization 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 loses. 
  • 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:

  • Masquerade wins, and Runo loses.
  • Masquerade used his Darkus Reaper in the brawl.
  • Runo loses a Haos Terrorclaw to the Doom Dimension in this brawl.
  • Later in episode 5, when Runo mentions the Bakugan she lost, a Haos Falconeer and Robotallion are seen along with Terrorclaw and Juggernoid, implying she lost them in this brawl too.

Battle Under Railroad Bridge

  • Dan VS Shuji

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.

Conclusion

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

The winner is Dan Kuso.

Trivia

  • This episode marks the first time a character activates a Double Ability, even before the term was introduced, in this case, Shuji. The second time is Invasion of the Vestals, where the term is presented.
  • In the American version, Falconeer responds to Drago's question on why they are fighting. However, in the Japanese version, Falconeer says nothing.
  • 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.
  • The Gate Card that Reaper and Drago were fighting on was Drago's Character Card in the Japanese version. However, in the American version, Drago and Reaper fought on the Fire Storm Gate Card.
