|First appearance||Masquerade Ball|
Reaper (Japanese version 'Lucifer' (ルシフェル Rushiferu)) is a Grim Reaper-like Bakugan, originally owned by Masquerade. It was Masquerade’s guardian Bakugan until it was betrayed by its former master and faced banishment in the Doom Dimension.
Reaper's personality paralleled that of his former master's - like Masquerade, he was fueled by an infernal hatred towards his enemies, hence acting in ruthless ways to win brawls. Upon being sent to the Doom Dimension, this demeamour festered, turning Reaper into a creature filled with bitter malice.
In battle, he maniacally delivers striking blows whilst slashing wildly with its sickle. Reaper's character design resembles a humanoid skeleton having deadly wings for agility in battle, and sharp, devil-like horns on its head.
Reaper follows Masquerade and was shown to have no problems with killing other Bakugan, causing him to form a rivalry with Drago. After a few battles against Dan Kuso, he still couldn't accept that Masquerade was merely tricking him. Despite his loyalty towards Masquerade, he was replaced by Hydranoid when Masquerade sent him to the Doom Dimension on purpose just to attempt to send Drago to the Doom Dimension, failing and having Reaper go in vain, having him speak against Masquerade and threatening him before he leaves. He then made a minor appearance when Drago was in the Doom Dimension. He was thinner and missing an eye (a visible scar present above and below) and had a broken horn. He was missing the eye and horn on the opposite sides of his head (right and left) respectively. His wings were ripped and tattered.

Ability Card (Bakugan Battle Brawlers Video Game)
- Reaper of the Chaos: Adds 200 Gs to Reaper.
Reaper is available in all attributes except Pyrus in the first video game. It starts with 290 Gs and is very common amongst Darkus brawlers.
- Reaper might be inspired from the fallen angel/demon form of Lucifer or the Grim Reaper. Most likely a combination of both as his body resembles that of the Devil but he has a skull face and carries a scythe like the Grim Reaper. Additionally, Reaper was described as an 'evil angel' in the Japanese patent of Bakugan.
- In the Japanese version, Hydranoid impaled Reaper with his tail before sending him to the Doom Dimension. It was likely cut because it was considered too violent for children.
- Masquerade entrusted Reaper to Ryo because he didn't have a Guardian Bakugan. But after he lost, Reaper returned to Masquerade.
