Show Me the Power! is the 16th episode of Bakugan: New Vestroia. It aired on August 22, 2009.


Spectra Phantom and Gus Grav, stuck on Earth, stay in an abandoned factory. When Gus returns withjuice in boxes (there's no such thing as juice-boxes on Vestal), he finds that Spectra is gone. While Dan Kuso trains his apprentice Baron Leltoy in order to keep him strong, Spectra runs into a female fortune-teller, who tells him, that if he stays on the path he's chosen, he will meet his end, but he does not listen to her. Spectra decides to take Drago by force, now being tired of waiting for Dan to join him. He sends one of Gus' robot hornets to challenge him, and they meet in the arena where he last fought Masquerade and Alpha Hydranoid. Mira Fermin, Baron and Runo Misaki worry about Dan being out on his own. In the first round, Dan takes a major loss, but manages to strike back with his Bakugan Trap Scorpion. But then Spectra pulls out his own Mechanical Bakugan Trap Metalfencer. Viper Helios gets frustrated and demands that he give him more power. Spectra willingly obliges and activates a Forbidden Ability Card to give Helios absolute power. Dan and Drago are disgusted by this massive power and what it could do to Helios, but neither Spectra nor Helios seem to care about the consequences. Drago is no match for this power and loses, with Spectra claiming him as his prize. Dan is crushed by his defeat and the loss of his partner Drago, while his rival walks by the same female fortune-teller, who is shocked by how much darker his future has become, but it seems that Spectra doesn't care. Dan yells in agony over Drago's loss.

Characters Seen[]


  • In this episode, Dan calls Scorpion "Scorpio".
  • Spectra said ”Gate Card open”, when he set it.
  • Dan wanted to fight Spectra in the stadium where he last defeated Masquerade in Behind the Mask of Masquerade because he “would have hometown advantage”. This also is the second time Masquerade is mentioned in New Vestroia.
  • The Forbidden Ability Cards are shown for the first time in the anime.
  • The Bee made its third appearance, entering Dan's House and showing Spectra Phantom challenging Dan Kuso for a brawl between them.
  • Spectra's downfall being prophesied by a fortune-teller is a reference to the story about Julius Caesar's defeat foretold by a soothsayer. Like the real-world Caesar, Spectra will later be betrayed by his allies, leading to his seeming defeat, though unlike Caesar, he in fact survives.
  • This episode's battle was the only time Spectra beat Dan.
  • This is the only time Dan used Scopion against an opponent other than Gus

Difference between the Japanese and English dub[]

  • The line where Gus says that there are juice boxes on Earth is English dub-made. In the Japanese version, he simply says that he retuned from buying goods for Spectra.
  • Gus comes back to the warehouse after Spectra leaves in the dub, while In the Japanese version he comes back after Drago notices rain coming.
  • Right before they battle, Spectra talks to Dan asking if he uses luck to win his battles. This is cut in the dub for time.
