My name is Wiseman, and I'm here to bring an end to the peaceful co-existance between Bakugan and Humans.
Wiseman, Gunz Blazing
For Wiseman's true form, see Coredegon.

Wiseman (ワイズマン, Waizuman?) was the second identity of Coredegon and the main antagonist in the second arc of Bakugan: Mechtanium Surge. He was at first thought to be Gunz Lazar in disguise, but it was later revealed that he was Coredegon and had copied Gunz's looks and mannerisms as a red herring to fool the Brawlers.



Wiseman is Coredegon in disguise, whose purpose was to destroy Bakugan City and break the alliance between humans and Bakugan. He used the Nonet Bakugan, who were imprisoned in the Doom Dimension by Genesis Dragonoid, but they betrayed him after he revealed his identity. He also has Slycerak, Exostriker and Mandibor that form Mechtavius Destroyer with him.

Wiseman's first appearance

In Evil Arrival, he appeared at the end of the episode, laughing at the outcome of the battle.

In Wiseman Cometh, he trapped Gunz in a volcano, then freed the Nonet Bakugan from the Doom Dimension and tricked them into helping him re-summon Mechtavius Destroyer so he could defeat the Battle Brawlers. He used the Darkus Nonets to cause trouble in the construction site by beating their Bakugan. When Julie Makimoto asked him who he was he said that he is challenging the Battle Brawlers to a battle. He then sent out the other Nonets to battle Dan Kuso, Shun Kazami, and Marucho Marukura. The Nonets then helped summon Mechtavius Destroyer. He ended up getting defeated when Dragonoid Destroyer was summoned and helped Jaakor and Reptak boost their power.

In Mysterious Bond, he battled Dan Kuso using Betadron, Kodokor and Mutabrid and formed Gliderak. Even though he defeated Fusion Dragonoid and Reptak's Bakugan Battle Suits, he lost when Reptak and Drago formed Aeroblitz.

In The Prodigal Bakugan, He told Betadron to stop complaining about his loss to Drago and decides to go after Shun. He picked Spatterix and Stronk to go with him. He then ambused and battled Shun and Jaakor as well as Orbeum and Skytruss using Spatterix and Stronk out in a mountain. Although the Nonets fight Shun alone due to Jaakor leaving him for a bit, Jaakor saves him and gives Spatterix and Stronk a challenge when Jaakor doges his Bakugan's attacks. Later Wiseman loses when Shun's Bakugan form Magmafury and took down Scorptak although Scorptak fought well. He then says although they lost, he is learning more about the Brawlers and retreats.

In Combination Impossible, He told Betadron to calm down after the later got mad about their losses to the Brawlers and told them that he had a new plan to beat the Bralwers. Worton mentioned that while they lost to Dan and Shun (two strong Brawlers) they should target Marucho and Radizen the weakest Bralwers. Wiseman parsed Worton for his genius and offered to take him and Balista to battle Marucho. Wiseman confront Marucho at his family's power plant saying he can't wait to cause the Bralwers a chain reaction by beating him. He then used Balista and Worton against Radizen and gave him a hard time. In the middle of the battle Mira Fermin arrives with Roxtor who offers to help. Radizen refuses Roxtor's help but Roxtor joins the battle anyways and helps turn the tables on Balista and Worton. Though he puts up a good fight, he lost after Roxtor and Radizen combined to form Betakor and beat Volkaos. Worton then asked Wiseman if that was how humans and Bakugan battle with Wiseman telling Worton he must have learned a lot from the battle.

In Enemy Allies, he, the Nonets and the other Mechtogan fight the Battle Brawlers and their Bakugan but end up losing thanks to Runo Misaki's help by sending over battle suits.

In Battle for Bakugan Land, He disguised himself as a clown in Bakugan Land and sold balloons to kids to put up an act. He later confronted Dan, Runo and Julie saying that Bakugan do not deserve to live as one. When Julie tried to interview him, he declined. He then fought Dan using Spatterix and Stronk and had Stronk battle Damdos when he interfered. The four Bakugan seemed eventually matched when his Bakugan formed Scorptak and caused major damage to the park. When Damdos saved Julie he was surprised. He was winning until Dan used Drago and Reptak's Battle Suits, resulting in him losing. He then mentioned he should have got rid of the battle suits as he retreats.

In Gunz Blazing, he disguised himself as Gunz Lazar to trick the Brawlers and steal some Battle Suits' data. He then battled Reptak and Drago using Tremblar and eventually lost. Back in his hideout, Betadron asked Wiseman who he really was telling him the others had questions about his identity. He told Betatron how he wishes to bring an end to the co-existence between Bakugan and humans.

In Battle Suit Bash, he fought the Brawlers using Betadron, Kodokor, and Mutabrid using the battle suits he stole, Dan even facing him in hand-to-hand combat. It was revealed in the end of the episode that he wasn't Gunz, and that he stole his appearance and battling style as a red herring for the Brawlers.

In Countdown to Doomsday, Wiseman looked at the volcano and mentioned how the Nonets powers is helping the Mechtogan grow in strength. He then mentions how the bond between humans and Bakugan are doomed while putting his helmet on. He then spoke with the Nonets about his master plan finally coming true and telling them that he ended the last battle early for the best. He then lets them know that resurrecting the Mechtogan and having them fight alongside them will gain them an easy victory. He then appears in the west bay area and engaged all the Nonets in battle against the Battle Brawlers using all his suits and combos against the Brawlers. The fight goes equally with every Bakugan giving it all they go and the Nonets power building up. When he called on the Mechtogan he earned his first win against the Brawlers after he summoned Mechtavius Destroyer who defeated Dragonoid Destroyer with his new power.

In The Eve of Extermination, He is shown in the volcano getting more power from Gunz. He then appeared in a stadium and used all the Nonets again in battle against the Brawlers which ended up having major damage. He then called on the Mechtogan and summoned Mechtavius Destroyer, but they were defeated by Flytris and Thorak new Mechtogan that Dragonoid Destroyer summoned. He then admitted that the new Mechtogan surprised him as he made his retreat. Shun tried to catch him but failed.

In Jump to Victory, he used Worton and Balista to battle against Drago, Reptak and Aerogan, but they were defeated again by Aerogan and Dragonoid Destroyer's attacks.

In Enemy Infiltration, he used the Nonets to summon Slycerak, Mandibor, and Exostriker, and killed Balista as he revealed his true identity.

Wiseman transforming into Coredegon

In Gunz Lives, he used the Nonets to battle against the Brawlers in his hideout and when the Nonets used their energy to battle them, he used it to reveal his true form, Coredegon.

In Evil Evolution, he transformed again from Coredegon and tells Gunz the real story on how he copied his appearance. He also told the Nonets the fate of Balista and left his identity as Wiseman, taking off his helmet and turning into Coredegon. Gunz would later use his old helmet to become the new Wiseman intent on stopping Coredegon and getting revenge on Dan. He later abandoned the identity thanks to Dan and Reptak convincing him to let go of his grudge letting the helmet be stuck in the Doom Dimension forever.

InBeginning of the End, Wiseman is mentioned by Reptak who tells Gunz that staying in his hideout for so long has caused the later to not understand combinations. However Reptak insists that he fight with Gunz because they are partners to the end. He also vows to make Coredegon pay for keeping Gunz held hostage for so long.



Bakugan: Mechtanium Surge

Episode Appearances


  • Wiseman's impersonation of Gunz has his hair color as light blond, as compared to the real Gunz's bright yellow.
  • Wiseman is the only Brawler who battles using all 6 attributes. This is because all the Nonets have all six attributes.
  • His idea of an ideal world where Bakugan can be free is very similar to N from Pokémon Black and White Version. However, unlike N, Wiseman is merely faking as part of his disguise.
  • Wiseman has several similarities to ADR-01 Jeri Type from Digimon Tamers.
    • Both are impersonating a close friend of the main protagonist to spy on them. ADR-01 is an impersonation of Jeri Katou, while Wiseman is an impersonation of Gunz. Both were also mistaken for the real person at first.
    • Both taunt the person they're impersonating; ADR-01 taunts Jeri when Beelzemon and Calumon attempted to rescue her, and Wiseman taunted Gunz after he awoke in a cave.
    • Both were finally defeated in their true forms by the main protagonist and their partners, with assistance from another monster, while in their true forms.
      • ADR-01 met her fate to Takato and Guilmon transformed into Gallantmon with assistance from Grani.
      • Wiseman's true form Coredegon combined with the three other Mechtogan as Mechtavius Destroyer met his fate to Dan and Drago using Dragonoid Destroyer with help from Genesis Dragonoid.
  • It is unknown if Mira, Runo, and Julie ever found out his true identity.
  • Out of all the main villains in Bakugan, he suffered the most losses.
  • Out of all the villains who Brawl with talking Bakugan, Wiseman shows the least amount of care for the Nonets only seeing them as pawns that he could use to help complete his rescutation and falsely promising them revenge. He also shows no care when they get beaten or hurt by the Brawlers, with him even calling Tremlar a pathetic fool during Gunz Blazing and even kills them when he becomes Mechtavius Destroyer. This contracts with Gunz who treats the Nonets with far more respect and actually cares for them when he fights Mechtavius Destroyer in Evil vs. Evil.


Despite being a strong brawler, Wiseman has a terrible brawling record, winning only five battles out of 15 brawls.
