Emperor Barodius (possibly, Koutei Barodius in Japanese) is the main antagonist of Bakugan: Gundalian Invaders, and later the main antagonist of the first arc in Bakugan: Mechtanium Surge. His Bakugan partner is Dharak.
He was voiced by Shawn Meunier.
Emperor Barodius is an intelligent and powerful Gundalian. He is also the former emperor of the Gundalian empire. Being the most powerful brawler in the universe, he easily defeated his opponents.
Although Barodius is cunning and resourceful, he is also very ruthless, sadistic, power-hungry, egocentric, cruel, conniving, manipulative and devious. In this point, he also manipulates the other members of the Twelve Orders into doing his dirty work. He will also stop at nothing of getting off what he desired. Barodius is also very narcissistic and uncaring as he considers his own allies and soldiers expendable and cares nothing for their lives and only views them as pawns; as he disposes of them when they are no longer useful or sacrificing them in order to gain more power or to eliminate a strong opponent in his way. The one exception being Kazarina, as he was angered by her death and avenged her by destroying Gil's ship and him along with it. He also told Dharak to destroy his enemies in her name.
As Mag Mel, Barodius is more ruthless and power-hungry than before. He does not care of his subordinates Anubias and Stella like before as he absorbed them to take their powers. He has no concern of his home planet, Gundalia after his committed crimes by murdering Gill, Airzel and Stoica as he invaded Gundalia to destroy the planet without hesitation. He fears of Dan's remained power the gate and key. He is believes Titanium Dragonoid evolved into Fusion Dragonoid is futile and nothing to stop him and Razenoid. He shown his anger toward Dan and Drago when they called him and Razenoid by their original names. After his defeat by Dan once again, Barodius is also suicidal as he attempted killed both Dan and Drago by using the uncontrollable energy to exploded himself.
