Mega Brontes has a goofy and foolish personality which resembles that of a stereotypical clown. He seems to overestimate his abilities which is evident during his battles with Percival and Mega Nemus. During his battle with the latter, Brontes' overconfidence is displayed when he asks Percival that if he was not wimping out on him as well as saying "The only illusion here was ever thinking you could defeat me" during his fight with Mega Nemus. Aside from his overconfidence, he is also shown to have an opposite personality compared to his partner Volt in terms of respect; he tends to inveigh his opponents whereas Volt treats them with the utmost respect. Lastly, his personality seems to shift depending on the situation of a brawl; when he is on the brim to victory he tends to brag and when he is on the verge of losing a brawl he acts immature. His immaturity caused by the loss of his brawls is best shown during his brawl with Elfin when the Aquos Bakugan utilized her Shooting Stardust ability. His retaliation to this is shown when he claims he is injured simply by repeatedly saying "Ow!".
