A Special Attack Bakugan is a Bakugan with a special feature that may range from spinning to double-sided to heavy metal.

The Gundalian Invaders Special Attacks are called Super Assault Bakugan.


  • Heavy Metal: Have a chrome metal band around the middle of a Bakugan, designed for extra stability.
  • Spin/Cyclone/Typhoon/Vortex/Orbit: Have a winding mechanism, the top half of the Bakugan spins when opened, designed for knocking other Bakugan off the card. This type of Bakugan usually opens up without being set on a metal Gate Card.
  • Element/G-Power Change: Have a wheel, which rotates when opened. Have three printed attribute symbols and G-powers on the wheel. The Attribute/G-Power is then changed to that shown on the wheel.
  • Jumping/Boost: Have a small protruding spot on the bottom of the Bakugan, designed to hop when rolled.
  • Turbine/Fly Wheel: Have a small gyroscope in the middle of the ball, a ripcord is used to spin the gyro, which the Bakugan will roll automatically when placed on a flat surface.
  • Preyas II: Preyas Angelo and Diablo are on opposite poles, has twice the chance of standing.
  • Light Up: The Bakugan lights up, usually with red light.
  • Dice Thrower: When the Bakugan opens it throws a die that determines its attribute or G-Power.
  • Double Magnet System (ダブルマグネットシステム, Daburu Magunetto Shisutemu?):[1] The Bakugan has two opening positions in the same pod with separate magnets.
