Destroy the enemy Bakugan! All forces advance!
~ Barodius
Emperor Barodius (possibly, Koutei Barodius in Japan) is the main antagonist of Bakugan: Gundalian Invaders, and later the recurring antagonist in Bakugan: Mechtanium Surge. His Bakugan partner is Dharak.

Along with Kazarina, he was a mastermind who was responsible for creating conflicts between the Neathalians and the Gundalians.

Later, he and Dharak were imprisoned by Code Eve when they refused to accept defeat and were transformed into the beings called Mag Mel and Razenoid. Barodius is also the arch-nemesis of Dan Kuso.


Emperor Barodius is an intelligent and powerful Gundalian. He is also the former emperor of the Gundalian empire. Being the most powerful brawler in the universe, he easily defeated his opponents.

Although Barodius is cunning and resourceful, he is also very ruthless, power-hungry, egocentric, cruel, conniving, manipulative, and devious. In this point, he also manipulates the other members of the Twelve Order into doing his dirty works. He will also stop at nothing of getting of what he desired.
