—Neo Dragonoid, Reunion
'Neo Dragonoid' (ドラゴノイド doragonoido, Japanese version Hyper Dragonoid) is a Bakugan and a downgraded evolution of Infinity Dragonoid, as well as the Guardian Bakugan of Dan Kuso in Bakugan: New Vestroia, until his evolution to Cross Dragonoid.
Famous for being one of the Six Fighting Bakugan who stopped the destruction of Vestroia and resurrected New Vestroia, Neo Dragonoid reunites with Dan to battle the Vexos that are enslaving Bakugan. He uses his gigantic wings as a shield against fire, water, and wind.
New Vestroia Handbook
In New Vestroia, Dragonoid looks like the Ultimate Dragonoid of Vestroia, with a green gem in his chest.
Dragonoid can activate many new abilities, using power from the Perfect Core.
Where You've Seen Him
Dragonoid has battled with Dan many times. In New Vestroia, Drago and Dan memorably battled Gus and Spectra, who wanted to capture Drago for Prince Hydron. With a little help from Shun, the Battle Brawlers triumphed over the Vexos once again.
What You Should Know
Drago had to leave a piece of himself behind to maintain the Infinity Core. Though this has left him a little less powerful than he once was, he is still a force to be reckoned with.
Neo Dragonoid's most amazing feature is his impossibly large wings. They act as a shield against fire, water, and wind. Drago had become part of Vestroia's Perfect Core before the Six Legendary Soldiers freed him. He had to leave some of his energy with the Perfect Core, so this form is less powerful in some ways that his previous evolved forms.
This Bakugan also has one other amazing ability. It can combine with six Trap Bakugan to form the mighty Maxus Dragonoid.
In Invasion of the Vestals, Infinity Dragonoid became Neo Dragonoid due to the Six Legendary Soldiers of Vestroia extracting him from the Perfect Core. (When The Six Ancient Warriors extracted him from the Perfect Core, he could still use the Perfect Core Ability Cards only if he tapped into the Perfect Core). He then travels to Earth and met Dan, Marucho, Runo, and Julie in a park once again. He then told them what had happened in New Vestroia and he tricked Julie, Runo, and Marucho into turning around so he and Dan could escape to New Vestroia without any of them. However, Marucho heard them and jumped into the vortex after them. He later battles Haos Verias and Ventus Fly Beetle in the first round and he defeated them with ease. In the second round he battled Haos Freezer and Ventus Atmos and he defeats them with ease also.
In Show Me the Power!, he battled Viper Helios and Metalfencer alongside Scorpion. He lost even though he used a Perfect Core Ability and was taken by Spectra due to a Forbidden Ability Card that Spectra used on Viper Helios. After the battle Spectra properly used the Forbidden Card on him but was not shown.
In Gone, Gone Bakugan, he battles Apollonir and uses Forbidden Abilities just like Viper Helios. Later in episode he is defeated by Apollonir and is turned back into Neo Dragonoid. Also he goes back to Dan.
In Beta City Blues, he battles Hades and Elico alongside Mega Nemus and wins due to a new Perfect Core Ability that he used called "Dragon Contender". When he uses that ability it destroyed the Beta City controller.
In Ultimate Bakugan, he saved Dan from falling when they reverted to ball form due to Prince Hydron's Dimension Controller. Later, Drago faced Cyborg Helios in the first and second round. He lost in the first round and in the second round he won. In the third round, he battled Maxus Helios and lost. In the last round, Dan and Drago had no choice but to use the Mechanical Bakugan as well. He then combined with them to form Maxus Dragonoid and the battle couldn't be decided yet.
In Final Countdown, the battle against Maxus Helios continued on and still no winner was determined.
In Reunion, neither Drago nor Helios won and the result was not determined. Even though the battle was terminated, Helios still wanted to fight and that was yet another draw. He also goes to Earth with Dan and the others and he learned that he could open a dimensional gate by himself. He also learned that he was almost as powerful as the Perfect Core itself. That meant he could separate from the Perfect Core.
