Underground Take Down is the 22nd episode of Bakugan: New Vestroia. It aired on October 3, 2009.


Mira Fermin and Spectra Phantom are called to meet with Prince Hydron, who shows Mira his collection and order her to help him get Drago in his collection. A solder then tells Hydron he is recerving a call so he lets Mira and Spectra leave. Hydron then receives a message from Zenoheld, who is angered by the destruction of the other two Dimension Controllers. Hydron then orders Mylene to divide and conquer the Resistance, since she has shown that they are weaker on their own. He also orders Lync to keep an eye on Spectra and to make sure that his new Mechanical Bakugan is ready for battle. The Resistance arrives and Ace and Baron explain that the controller is underground and is the most powerful out of all the other controllers. They all head in, but they encounter Volt Luster. Baron deals with Volt while the others proceed, discovering that Gamma City is not a real city, but a research facility. All of a sudden, Shadow Prove and Mylene appear, and Shun and Marucho step into battle. Spectra takes Mira to see a team of special Mechanical Bakugan that he and Professor Clay had designed themselves and that they were intended for Hydron, but Spectra intends to make certain that they only obey him. Spectra then orders Mira and Gus to use the Bakugan to battle Dan and Ace to collect data on Drago and Percival. Meanwhile, the others gain the upper hand against the Vexos. Dan and Ace continue to the controller but encounter Gus and Mira. Ace is shocked that Mira has truly betrayed them. Gus orders Mira to prove that she really is loyal to Spectra by brawling.

Difference between the Japanese and English dub[]

  • After Volt beats Baron in round 1, Dan Shun Marucho and Ace are shown in the elevator where Marucho worries that since Volt showed up as soon as they appeared that there are likely more traps ahead. This is cut in the dub.


  • The above Bakugan Traps made their official debut in containment.
  • This episode marks the first time Zenoheld appeared after his flashback/fantasy debut in Facing Ace, 20 episodes ago, and first time in actuality.
  • This is the first time where all six attributes of Bakugan Traps are shown.
  • This is the last episode until A Royale Pain that a true form of the Bakugan alongside its toy equivalent appears in the Intermission Screen. From this point on, only the toy Bakugan alongside its battler will appear in the Intermission Screen.
  • Elfin's English voice changed from this episode on.
  • Ingram was referred to as "she" even though it is male stated on
  • This episode seems to hint that Hydron knows Spectra is Keith.
