The Battle Begins (originally known as Dragon Warriors in Japan) is the pilot and first episode of the anime series Bakugan Battle Brawlers. It aired on April 5th, 2007 in Japan and September 3rd, 2007 in North America.

Plot

One day, Dan prepares for a brawl against Akira, at the park. However, he arrives only to find that Shuji (Akira's older brother) is his challenger. During their second battle, Drago appears. A battle ensues and during the course of the battle, Dan has a vision of a Pyrus Dragonoid (Drago) struggling with a Darkus Fear Ripper. The battle continues and Dan is victorious. The Dragonoid starts to explain what's behind the scenes of Bakugan, and from that point onwards, all the Battle Brawlers realize that Bakugan was more than just a game, and must save Earth and Vestroia from the destruction lead by the tyrannical Naga.
