Rubanoid (Japanese version Rubianoid (ルビアノイド, Rubianoido?)) is a ruby coated dragon-like Bakugan. He was used by Sid Arkale, but then entrusted to Ren after Sid passed away. His Battle Gear is Destrakon Gear. Ren then went on to give it to Linus Claude as his new Guardian Bakugan after the loss of Neo Ziperator.
He, like other Gundalian Bakugan, have a great hatred of Drago, which lasted up until the final events of Bakugan: Gundalian Invaders.
Crimson armor protects Rubanoid effectively from attacks. He shoots red energy waves from his mouth and attacks by shooting hard blades fast and mercilessly.
Rubanoid attacks by shooting his hard claws out fast and mercilessly, and his crimson armor protects him effectively from opponent's attacks.
He first appeared being used Sid Arkale and was equipped with Destrakon Gear battling Helix Dragonoid and Akwimos tagging with Phosphos He can talk, meaning that he is in fact a real Bakugan, and not mechanical.
He appeared again tagging with Avior to fight Venoclaw and Buz Hornix and won the battle. Later he fought alongside Buz Hornix against Coredem and Akwimos. He and Sid lost, but they told the brawlers their secret, which was to stall time so that Ren could kick the brawlers out of Bakugan Interspace and not allow anyone from the outside of Bakugan Interspace to come in except the Gundalians and their brainwashed human army.
He appeared to face Drago and lost when Drago evolved after merging with the Element evolving into Lumino Draganoid, back in Gundalia after Emperor Barodius dismissed Sid, Rubanoid was furious saying that their loyalty and services demands respect, but was knocked out and beaten by Krakix and Kazarina said that she could use him in her experiments before transporting him. He was transported to her lab for experiments.
Sid, Lena, Jesse, and Zenet were shown to not be dead but trapped in Kazarina's Lab. Sid and Rubanoid were the only ones to escape. He then battles alongside Ren and Linehalt against Dan and Lumino Dragonoid. After losing, he was given to Ren before Sid was disposed of.
He appeared healing himself in a special tank with Linus as he was badly damaged by Aranaut's Battle Crusher attack in his last battle under Ren's ownership.
In the final events of Gundalian Invaders, Linus and him team up to help fight the Gundalians with him battling a hypnotized Contestir. He loses and later battles Plitheon, Phosphos, Contestir and many Gundalian Bakugan alongside Raptorix and Neathan Bakugan. When the Brawlers arrive, he says "A couple minutes earlier would've been helpful!"
He battled Phantom Dharak, Strikeflier, Lythirus and other Gundalian Bakugan alongside Linehalt, Phosphos, Plitheon, Raptorix, Contestir, Akwimos, Hawktor, Coredem, Blitz Dragonoid, Dragonoid Colossus and other Neathan Bakuagn and was joined later by Sabator, Aranaut and Avior.
