Miyoko Kuso (空操 美代子, Kūsō Miyoko?) is the wife of Shinjiro Kuso and the mother of Dan Kuso who appears to be a typical stay-at-home mom, always doing the cooking and cleaning.

Miyoko has shoulder-length brown hair and brown eyes.

She is seen wearing a few different outfits:

  • In the first two seasons, she wears an orange shirt and blue jeans.
  • In the third and fourth season, she has a pink and white top with jeans.
  • Her yoga outfit consists of a pink shirt and light blue shorts.


Miyoko is carefree and relaxed, basically letting Dan do as he pleases. However, she still displays assertiveness by not entirely letting him do or say what he wants, when and how he wants to. She does show genuine, deep love and compassion for her son, getting worried after he didn't call when he said he would and when she noticed him talking to a Bakugan (because she couldn't hear Drago respond, she thought something was wrong with Dan).

She's also very kind and generous, allowing Dan's friends stay over and feeding them a buffet. However, in spite of her hospitality, she continues to display her willfulness, forcing Mira to join her yoga session despite Mira's obvious displeasure.

She seems to also have a strong, good relationship with her husband, Shinjiro Kuso, and displays a love for jewelry.



Bakugan Battle Brawlers[]

At the beginning of the series, Miyoko became concerned about her son Dan Kuso's latest hobby. She found out about Bakugan when she was cleaning Dan's room. Mrs. Kuso found a Bakugan ball on a table, dropped it and it turned out to be a Pyrus Griffon. She soon feared something was going on when Dan gave her a frog keychain for her birthday only to not come home afterword and asks Runo Misaki and even Masquerade. When Dan comes back, she and the rest of the Brawlers parents were informed of what was going on and let him go to Vestroia with the others to stop Naga. At the end of the show she and the other parents take a photo of the Battle Brawlers.

Bakugan Battle Brawlers: New Vestroia[]

Dan Kuso calls Miyoko in Unmasked when he returns to Earth. In Duel in the Dunes, when Dan comes in to the house she goes over to hug him only to be greeted by his friend Baron Leltoy, who she called a "sweetie". She then gets Mira Fermin to join her in doing some yoga, which she apparently didn't like, complaining, "Is this some Earth torture?" She continues to appear until Dan goes back to New Vestroia. Miyoko allows him to go, though she gets a bit worried about him once he leaves.

Bakugan: Gundalian Invaders[]

According to Drago, Miyoko tried to make him work out with her in A New Beginning.

In Destiny Revealed, she and Julie Makimoto received her son, Shun Kazami, Marucho Marukura and Jake Vallory.

Bakugan: Mechtanium Surge[]

Miyoko's first appearance in Mechtanium Surge was in Tri-Twister Take Down, when Marucho Marukura and Shun Kazami went to talk to her about Dan Kuso's behavior. She reappears in A Hero Returns, worried about Dan's change in behavior as of late. Her last appearance in the series is in the last episode of the first arc, when Mag Mel banishes all the people.


  • The name Miyoko means "beautiful" (美) (mi), "generation" (代) (yo) and "child" (子) (ko).
  • Miyoko's surname Kuso means "air maneuver" (空操).


  • According to Miyoko, Dan Kuso and his father have big heads.
  • According to Dan and Drago, Miyoko hates surprises.
  • Miyoko is the only parent (of the Battle Brawlers' parents/guardians) who appeared in all four seasons.
  • Miyoko is one of the few characters who ever calls Dan by his full name. The only other characters who have done so are Drago and Shun Kazami: all three are very close to Dan.
  • A running gag is that Dan would tell Miyoko something at the last minute, without getting her permission or opinion; for example, he tells her he was bringing friends over, then hangs up before hearing what she has to say. He later tells her at the last minute that he was going to Neathia to fight against Barodius.
  • Mira described Miyoko's yoga session as "earth torture".
  • Miyoko tends to use hair clips and hair pins to change her hairstyle.
  • Miyoko's usual past times are watching TV and doing yoga.
