Naga is a rogue Bakugan who tried to control all the power in Vestroia. In order to do so, he tried to absorb the two opposite cores but made a mistake and trapped himself within the Silent Core, while the Infinity Core was expelled to Earth. At the same time, Naga shot energy waves to brainwash the Bakugan, altering the dimensional balance and creating the Doom Beings.
He is a skeletal, split-nosed (with a seeming cleft lip and palate), wyvern kind of Bakugan who was an outcast due to the fact that he and his twin-sister, Wavern were not aligned with any of the six regions of Vestroia; they were known as The White Ones. He has no attribute, but pop-up effects are similar to Darkus Bakugan. He corrupted Alice Gehabich and Dr. Michael to become Masquerade and Hal-G respectively, and leads them in his quest to take both the Silent Core and the Infinity Core, and gain the power to take over the entire universe.
He's the most power-hungry Bakugan (to be nearly matched by Dharak/Razenoid in the third and fourth seasons). Also, he is the only main villain to be a Bakugan without a brawler, even though Hal-G is technically his brawler (however it can be said in reverse to many cases of evil partnerships/relationships where it is the Bakugan not the brawler who is dominant). Naga has also a deep hatred for the Battle Brawlers, specially for Dan and Drago (he is the reason for Dan and Drago met each other in the first place).
Naga and Wavern were born during the Great Revolution (the conflict turned into distortion, created by the only original Bakugan, Dharaknoid and Dragonoid), as they became trapped in the empty space between dimensions. When Drago was able to get across from his Pyrus Space, he could meet them both, but Naga only cared about himself and was angry for being born powerless. After Dr. Michael went to Vestroia by accident, they met each other for the first time. Michael explained to him about the Dimensional Transporter, unaware about his true motives. At last, Naga expelled Michael back to Earth and used a Dimensional Transporter Card he got from him to go to Vestroia's center, where the Cores were located.
After transporting himself to the center, Naga attempted to capture the powers of the Silent Core and Infinity Core, sources of negative and positive energy respectively of Vestroia, by going to them directly and absorbing them to fulfill what he believed to be his destiny. He failed, however, and was unable to control the power of the Silent Core, only being able to absorb the Silent Core after it trapped him inside; after that, catastrophic energy surge was caused due to the huge amount of negative energy was released and the Infinity Core became bonded to his twin-sister, Wavern, who was sucked into a portal to the human world.
This disaster caused the negative energy to spill all over Vestroia and the Earth, including the Bakugan on Earth as well as creating Hal-G (from Alice's grandfather, Dr. Michael) and Masquerade (from Alice) from two unfortunate people, who were exposed to excessive negative energy when Naga absorbed the Silent Core. He used them both to hunt for the Infinity Core from Wavern and also supplied them powerful abilities like Doom Cards (for Masquerade only) and thus, encountering the Bakugan Battle Brawlers, team of heroes, who were after the Infinity Core as well, to protect it from Naga. Naga created the Doom Cards for Masquerade, to send all fallen Bakugan to the Doom Dimension. At the first season finale, he was sent to the Doom Dimension (according to website Bakugan.com) while Drago became the Perfect Dragonoid and transformed himself into the new core for New Vestroia.
Many characters mentiond Naga (or what he did) even though he isn't seen.
Naga has been released in the BakuSwap series, in all Attributes, except Ventus. It has also been released as one of "The White Ones" as White Naga available with the Bakugan Battle Brawlers Video Game. The Subterra form of Naga has 640 Gs. It is often confused to be a type of Dragonoid and has caused many debates over if it is classified as one or not. It is quite easy to tell that it is Naga by it's automatically opening jagged horn and it's split nose.
The Pyrus version can have either 660 Gs or 440 Gs. The Haos Naga can have either 640 Gs or 420 Gs. The Subterra version can have either 620 Gs, 560 Gs, or 450 Gs. A dual-attributed Haos and Subterra Naga can have 620 Gs, while the Subterra and Haos one has 450 Gs.
In Japan, its Haos version in BCV-11 comes with 480 Gs or 500 Gs.
