Anime[edit]

Bakugan Battle Planet[edit]

A Haos Gorthion becomes Lia Venegas's Guardian Bakugan. He appears on Earth for unknown reasons after the second Great Collision, inside of a pile of goo. Lia discovers him after Dan discovers Drago's true form.[2] Gorthion later trains and films videos with the Awesome Ones.[3]

Gorthion trains and films with the Awesome Ones, but like the rest of the Bakugan, is put off by his brawler needing sleep and rest instead of constantly brawling. After a particularly long and eventful session of training, Wynton and Lia are determined to sleep while Dan and Drago are out fetching morning meals for the group. Gorthion and the other Bakugan would rather continue to brawl instead of wait around, and tries various methods in order to wake the brawlers up. After Dan and Drago return from their run to the local Burger Joint, Gorthion and Trox are eager to continue brawling.[4]

Lia almost uses Gorthion to brawl the Rowdy Reds after they destroy Costero Canyada, but lets Dan handle the brawl instead.[5]

Gorthion is activated along with Trox by Lia and Wynton to brawl Marco Chezanello and his Pyrus Cyndeous, after Drago is blown away by Cyndeous before he could be activated. As Gorthion and Trox are charging Cyndeous, they fall into a hidden pit, trapping them. Gorthion and Trox are hit by Cyndeous Sword Barrage while defenseless, even though Cyndeous originally protested against the act. While Dan and Drago are away, Marco orders Cyndeous to attack the remaining brawlers, which cause Cyndeous to fly in to a fit of rage at the cruelty of the order, and start attacking in random directions. One of the attacks is headed for Mac and Maggie, but Dan activates Drago and shields them from the blast. Despite being their opponent, Drago also protects Marco and Max from Cyndeous' random attacks. Just as Drago is about to be incapacitated by the attacks, Gorthion knocks Cyndeous off of him.[6]

After a spree of prank videos made by Wynton about Trox, the two get into an argument that causes them to break apart, which Gorthion witnesses and is drawn into when Wynton wagers that if Trox can beat Gorthion, Drago, and Cyndeous, that he can do whatever he wants, included finding a new partner. Trox accepts, and takes a three-on-one brawl against the other three Bakugan. Trox deftly dodges all the attacks of the other three Bakugan. The three surround Trox and attack at the same time, but Trox tricks them by creating a hole underneath him using Rock Riser, causing the other Bakugan to attack each other. This wins Trox the brawl, and the wager. As the victor, Trox begins to walk away from his former partner, set on pursuing his new life. Wynton regrets his decisions, and asks Trox to come back, apologizing saying that he'll make no more pranks videos. Trox accepts his apology, and remains with the Awesome Ones. The team takes down their prank videos, losing a large amount of views, but retaining the trust of Trox.[7]

After Kravitz makes her initial entrance into Los Volmos, she seeks to alter people's perceptions of Bakugan to something that they distrust. Lia, Wynton and their respective Bakugan are training in a park when Trox is knock out of the park's bounds. Trox recalls into ball form to avoid damage, and rolls underneath a car. Kravitz takes this opportunity to force Trox out of ball form using her technology from AAAnimus Inc, damaging the surrounding property. Later, Lia and Gorthion are ordering a pastry at a local food stall when Kravitz again uses her technology to force Gorthion out of ball form, destroying the stall and harm people's perceptions of Bakugan. Kravitz continues her mission of sowing discontent towards Bakugan in the community, forcing Bakugan out of ball form at unopportune moments around town. Finally, after having faced pushed back from Kravitz and the community of Los Volmos, the Awesome Ones decide to film a mock brawl video, using a cardboard set and keeping the Bakugan in ball forms. However, Kravitz has been spying on the group, and forces Gorthion, Drago, Trox, and Howlkor out of ball form, destroying the set. Kravitz then confronts the Awesome Ones again, disguised as the anti-Bakugan activist, along with several members of the community, include Bill and Barbara Kouzo. The group of protesters, including Dan's parents, demand that the Awesome Ones had their Bakugan over to Kravitz. Kravitz takes their Bakugan, declaring everything "safe".

While this is occurring, Benton Dusk watches, and decides to cause a weather satellite to plummet towards Los Volmos. Back in their clubhouse, the Awesome Ones watch Veronica Venegas as she reports on the incoming satellite. While Wynton and Lia scramble to grab what they can before evacuate, Dan formulates a plan: if they could get their Bakugan back, they could destroy the satellite and repair Los Volmos' perceptions towards Bakugan. The team stops Kravitz on her way out of Los Volmos, demanding their Bakugan back. Kravitz declines, but as she walks past the Awesome Ones, her device that forces Bakugan out of their ball forms is knocked from her person, falling and activating the Bakugan in the cases. The Bakugan break free, and Kravitz escapes. Gorthion and Lia are reunited, and begin to help escort civilians out of the city. After seeing this, the citizens of Los Volmos, including Dan's parents, tear up their anti-Bakugan fliers, and return to accepting Bakugan.[8]

Gorthion helps Lia test out her new drone technology, when she notices something in the background of her videos. This leads her to discovering Pegatrix, and being challenged by China Riot. Later, after China Riot challenges Lia to a brawl, she uses Gorthion as her opening Bakugan. After Gorthion gets hit while Lia is distracted, Lia attempts to grab a Haos one close to her on the Hide Matrix, however China has a series of hidden platforms that can rise and fall on her command, which prevent Lia from obtaining access to any BakuCores. With the help of her platforms, China handily defeats Lia, and per the contract, Lia has to give Gorthion to China. Dan and Wynton step up and challenge China in order to win Gorthion back. Pegatrix acts as an "eye in the sky", locating BakuCores for Dan and Wynton. With the combined effort of Drago, Trox, and Pegatrix, the Awesome Ones easily beat Maxotaur, and Gorthion is returned to Lia. However, China refuses to hand over Maxotaur, and escapes with Jenkins on a helicopter.[9]

In Teamwork Makes the Dream Work, Gorthion, Drago, and Cyndeous are hiding in the Studio D, keeping an eye on Nillious as he attempts to taunt Drago into a brawl. Instead of listening to Drago's advice and staying hidden, Gorthion steps out and uses Drum Wave, but Nillious uses Reflection and sends the wave back at Gorthion, incapacitating him.[10]
