Dual Hydranoid (デュアルヒュドラ Dyuaru Hyudora, Japanese version Dual Hydra) is the evolution of Hydranoid.
(Note: The image above in the infobox is not correct. Dual Hydranoid now has two heads.) The start of a saw on Hydranoid's chest has now become a fully developed metal saw that is now movable. In addition to his two heads, Dual Hydranoid also has two tails. The number of spines Hydranoid has increases and become sharper and longer. With this new evolution, he is now bipedal. He can now grow a new head if one has been cut off, but at the cost of a Gate Card, presumably due to Masquerade's HSP decreasing when his head grew back.
Bakugan Ultimate Handbook
This Bakugan is extremely strong, and it steals energy from Bakugan sent to the Doom Dimension to become stronger. Only a cruel and heartless creature could do that! In battle, Hydranoid is hard to defeat, thanks to its tough outer skin and double heads. It lashes out at opponents with its long tail. Hydranoid may not be able to move fast, but it makes up for its lack of speed with the sheer force of its attacks.
Masquerade's Darkus Hydranoid evolved in Doom Dimension or Bust when Masquerade battled his comrade's Bakugan. It's evolution was caused by the power from the Bakugan that were sent to the Doom Dimension. It evolved during the battle with Klaus and Sirenoid.

- It is one of the first Special Attack Bakugan originally packaged in Booster Packs.
- On the Bakugan official website, Dual Hydranoid's provided picture is wrong, because it says Hydranoid (Dual-Headed) with an Aquos Toy Dual Hydranoid and a Normal Darkus Hydranoid.
- Dual Hydranoid is based on the Lernean Hydra, a monster in Greek Mythology, that started with a single head. Its head would regrow and multiply if decapitated.
- Even so, Dual Hydranoid's ability to regrow its heads is not entirely an accurate reference. The original Lernean Hydra would, upon decapitation, regrow two in place of the original, allowing it to further "evolve" into a more deadly creature. Dual Hydranoid did not ever demonstrate this, so it can be assumed that the only way for any Hydranoid to gain any additional heads is through evolution.
