Plot[]

Dan is chatting with the brawlers online when his mom requested him to run to the local supermarket to buy some meat due to a huge sale. Runo is also asked to buy some meat for dinner. Dan and Runo were off in town when they bumped each other while turning around the corner. Both Runo and Dan are shocked; they meet for the first time in real life, finding out they live in the same town. When they bump into each other, Dan is unaware he drops his BakuPod. Dan rushes off to the meat sale, while Runo picks up Dan's BakuPod and finds a message from Masquerade on it. Wanting to avenge the Bakugan Masquerade previously took from her, she decides to go off and battle him even though the battle invitation was meant for Dan. When Runo meets Masquerade, she finds out that her challenger is a boy named Tatsuya sent by Masquerade to battle Dan after the boy was beaten by Masquerade. Dan goes to find his BakuPod and ends up finding Runo about to start a brawl. Dan argues with Runo that this is his brawl, although Runo reasons with Dan that she wants to have one shot at getting revenge for her Bakugan that were sent into the Doom Dimension.

Errors[]

Runo Color Error
  • There is a slight coloring error on Runo.
  • There is a reused scene during the final round of the battle between Runo and Tatsuya, where Runo is holding Juggernoid, calling it Saurus and throwing it into battle to reveal Saurus, but in the Japanese version, she was holding Saurus in the final round.
  • Fear Ripper is referred to as Gargonoid many times near the end.
  • In the Japanese version, Masquerade used a card called "Black is Darkness" on Centipoid, bringing all opponent's on the field to the user's Gate Card. However, in the english dub, this scene is cut, making it the first episode in the dub to cut a scene where a character activates an ability, the other being True Colours in Gundalian Invaders.
