|First appearance||Runo Rules|
Centipoid (Japanese version Centipede (センチピード Senchipīdo)) is a centipede-like Bakugan.
It is based on the insect the Centipede. It has two pincers that are larger than its head, which can penetrate hard armor. It has two tails that are razor sharp and antennas that sense predators miles away. It travels underground for sneak attacks and has an unbreakable, exoskeleton shell. It has fifteen pairs of legs.
Centipoid is a common Bakugan. It has been used by many Brawlers, but mainly Jewls, who has a Subterra Centipoid as her Guardian Bakugan. Billy Gilbert and Akira also have Subterra Centipoids. Chan Lee and Dan both had Pyrus Centipoids. Runo and Julio had their own Haos Centipoids. Kenji and Masquerade both have a Darkus Centipoid and Alice used a Darkus Centipoid (which she was afraid to use at first) in her battle with Klaus.
Another Darkus Centipoid was used by an illusionary Alice in Masquerade's battle with Exedra in Show Me What You've Got. An Aquos Centipoid was seen in Episode 46 when Marucho's Aquos Hazard changed Jenny's Subterra Centipoid into one, so it could participate in Marucho's Aquos Quadruple Chain Attack.
