|First appearance||Last One Standing|
Hades is a Mechanical Dragon Bakugan who lives to serve the Vexos. He is Shadow's primary brawler when battling the Resistance. Hades has three fire breathing heads and six wings making him one of the fastest flying Bakugan. His three tails each have a spiky tip, so Hades can attack his opponent from many different directions. His metal exoskeleton can sustain multiple blows from any brawler, but on top of that he has three large metal thorns that further protect his heart from attack.
Hades first appeared in episode 15 of New Vestroia, along with the trap Bakugan, Fortress, in order to battle Ingram and Hylash. Hades was disguised as Alpha Hydranoid. He even used some of Alpha Hydranoid's abilities. When Ingram and Hylash formed High Mobility Mode, they ripped Hades' disguise off and he and Fortress quickly finished them off.

Hades's ball form in the anime is slightly different from the toy. It has a longer horn on its middle head in the anime and its feet are longer. It also has hands visible on ball form in the anime if you look close enough. The toy has a different jaw design on the top head as well.
Hades was first released in BakuBronze, then in special attack as Turbine Hades. The known strongest Hades in the game is Darkus Hades from Baku-Legacy booster packs which have 730 Gs up to 790 Gs. The Darkus version in the BakuPack has 670 Gs.
Like many of the Mechanical Bakugan, Hades has a Different paint job in the Anime then in Real life. Hades in the Anime had silver, black and purple while the real ones only had black and purple.
- Hades was the most powerful Bakugan used by the Vexos (excluding Spectra), before they were resupplied more powerful Mechanical Bakugan.
- Shadow Prove must really care about Hades, because when Hades was destroyed, he yelled and whined at Alice and Chan Lee for the rest of the battle.
- Since Hades is a cyber copy of Hydranoid, he should have started out looking like original Hydranoid, then Dual Hydranoid and finally his current form.
- In Greek mythology, Hades is the god of the Underworld and Dead.
- Hades is the second mechanical Bakugan shown to be destroyed, the first was Altair.
- Hades is one of the two bakugan to still animate on the Intermission Screen, the other being Cyborg Helios.
