Dharak (ダラク, Daraku?), also called Dharaknoid (ダラクノイド, Darakunoido?), was a four-legged dragon-like Bakugan and the Guardian Bakugan of Emperor Barodius. He is the direct descendant of the original Dharaknoid, one of two original Bakugan. His Battle Gear is AirKor.
Gundalia's strongest Bakugan and the partner of Emperor Barodius. He is from the same lineage as Drago, and has inherited the DNA of the biological makeup of one of the two original Bakugan. He projects a dark energy blast from his mouth to devastate his opponents and only Emperor Barodius can bring out the best of his abilities.
Dharak's rivalry with Drago mirrors the latter's former rivalry with Hydranoid and Helios in the first two series, but unlike them, Dharak can't be turned good, as he only serves Emperor Barodius and the Twelve Orders of Gundalia. Also, his voice does not sound as sinister as Hydranoid's or Helios', having a calmer tone to that deep serious voice like Hydranoid when he first appeared. His personality also appears to be similar to his brawling partner, Barodius, being devious, quiet and hot-tempered.
In Final Fury, he was shown on a video that Professor Clay received from an unknown source, which was later revealed to be Fabia. He was at war alongside Lumagrowl, Strikeflier, Sabator, Lythirus, and Krakix. He also combined with his Battle Gear (AirKor) and defeated a large number of Neathian Bakugan.
Dharak makes his debut in A New Beginning in a vision of Dan along Barodius and the rest of the Major Twelve Orders Bakugan.
In Hostile Takeover, he appears by Barodius' side again, commenting that the human brawlers stolen from Earth were efficient.
In The Sacred Orb, he battles on Neathia with the rest of the Twelve Orders and uses Exokor to become Dharak Colossus for the first time. He uses his armor to destroy the Second Security Shield. He also met Drago for the first time, calling him a "Worthless lizard." They end up battling, but when they both get close to each other, a bright light (Code Eve) appeared, and all Gundalians were sent back to Gundalia.
In Divide and Conquer, he battled against Sabator and his Battle Gear Chompixx. He lost in the first round due to Sabator using a Level 3 Class Battle Gear Ability Card but in the second round he defeated Sabator, who managed to survive due to the Sacred Orb transferring him between dimensions.
In Sid Returns, he attacks Sid because he escaped from Kazarina's Lab, which causes Sid to fall to his death trying to save Ren. When Dan tries to convince Ren to switch sides, he tells Dan that his efforts to turn Ren are useless, and to save his insults for the battlefield.
In Colossus Dharak, he merges with his upgraded Colossus Armour to permanently destroy the restored Second Shield and ends up facing Drago again. He easily defeats him and punctures a hole in the Second Shield. But before he can continue Ren switches sides and Linehalt attacks him.
In Dragonoid Colossus, he detaches from his Colossus parts and then attached to AirKor to battle Ren and Linehalt. He won the first round but in the second round Linehalt unleashed his Forbidden Power, causing Dragonoid Colossus to appear and stop the battle.
In True Evolution, he battled Blitz Dragonoid, who used his Axator Gear and Jakalier. He defeated Jakalier and his Battle Gear (AirKor) defeated Blitz Dragonoid's Battle Gear (Axator Gear), though he later lost the battle to Drago.
In Jake's Last Stand, he appeared talking to Emperor Barodius and Kazarina about Drago.

'Dharak' is derived from the Japanese for corruption, 堕落 (daraku), which likely refers to Dharak's corrupted, power-hungry personality.
- His voice in ball form is different from his voice in Bakugan form.
- As Dharak Colossus, he seems to have the same abilities, but with greater strength.
- When he merges with AirKor as Dharak Colossus, the middle part of AirKor is left out.
- It seems that his Darkus toy in Evil Twin Pack and regular version have inverted detail colors. These color errors might be manufacture errors.
- He is one of the few Bakugan to have four legs that open in ball form, along with Hynoid, Terrorclaw, Mantris, Kilan Leoness, Brawlacus Dharak, and Damakor.
- Of all the Gundalian Invaders Bakugan, Dharak has been released in the most alternately colored forms (BakuGranite, BakuBlue, Crimson & Pearl, and Evil Twin).
- He, and by extension, his evolution Phantom Dharak, are the only Bakugan belonging to the Twelve Orders whose G-Power was not shown.
