Samurai Showdown is the 36th episode of Bakugan: New Vestroia. It aired on January 23, 2010.


Baron Leltoy's little sister, Maron, uses Klaus von Hertzon's transporter to visit Baron, so Julie and Runo suggest, to him, to show her around town. Meanwhile, Shun sneaks away from Marucho's House, and travels to the Samurai theme attraction, in the same park that Baron and Maron are at. Shun encounters Volt Luster disguised as a samurai and a battle ensues. At the same time, Baron activates his Gauntlet to show Maron how it works and learns of Shun and Volt's battle. The two easily overpower Volt, keeping the Ventus Energy safe. Maron bids farewell, and thanks everyone for the great day and departs, not before thanking Shun for saving her and kissing him on the cheek.

Deleted Scene[]

  • Shun's meditation at the beginning of the episode was cut in the English version.
  • During the scene where Maron visits Baron, Dan assures Baron that it's okay for him to go out, since he didn't have the Haos Energy anymore after losing it to Hydron in Revenge of the Vexos and wouldn't be tracked. This was cut in the English dub for time constraints.


  • This is the only appearance of Hexstar.
  • Volt would have won if Baron didn't activate his gauntlet at the right time.
  • Strangely, Volt and Shun acted as though neither had met before, despite battling on opposite sides in the Alpha City tournament back in Freedom Run. This may be because they both treated the tournament as a one-off thing and didn't bother remembering each other in detail.
  • This is the last time Volt loses a Brawl.
  • Baron seems to remember what amusement parks are ever since Dan took him there back in Unmasked.
    • This is also the second and final time a Brawl takes place in an amusement park after Mira's Brawl with Gus Grav.
  • This is the only time Volt battles on Earth.
