Dan Kouzo is a character that appears in Bakugan Battle Planet.
Caucasian, medium height and an athletic build. Dark hair with a red streak in it that he’s had since birth. Dan’s dress has a modern, urban daredevil flair to it. Sporting the coolest sneakers, gloves and pads, Dan looks like he could ride any bike, board or set of skis right up a wall if you asked him to. Dan is “the Talent” portion of the Awesome Ones. Aim a camera at this kid, give him a task and he’s sure to deliver a “like”-worthy performance. Dan is athletic, outgoing, inclusive and supportive— a natural leader, even though he doesn’t think of himself as one. Over the course of his brief and charmed life, Dan has made lots of friends, but is fiercely loyal to his two besties, Wynton Styles and Lia Venegas. They have been through a lot together and even when they’ve had disagreements, no one ever goes home mad. It’s a rule with Dan: “The sun doesn’t go down until we work it out.” That’s how you make lifelong friendships. A never-say-die, charismatic force of nature, Dan could hang out with any group of kids but sticks with the crew that shares his passion for making videos and sharing them with the world. Life’s a game to Dan, but he doesn’t play to win, he plays to play. Dan accepts any challenge head on, because he wants to know what he’s capable of.
Dan Kouzo is a member of the Awesome Ones, a group of kids living in Los Volmos who make videos for the video site ViewTube. The other members include Wynton Styles, Lia Venegas, and Lightning the dog. Twelve years after the Great Collision, the Awesome Ones sneak into a restricted area of Pinpoint Park, in order to film a video for their ViewTube channel on the twelve-year anniversary of the Great Collision, in a crater caused by the Collision. While the group throws a surprise announcement for Dan's birthday, the second Great Collision occurs, causing the group to experience the Hide Matrix for the first time. Dan meets Drago, his new Bakugan partner.
Dan and the rest of the Awesome Ones and their newfound Bakugan spend their time filming videos for their ViewTube channel. This is comprised of Dan, Wyton, Lia, and Lightning, and their Bakugan Drago, Trox, Gorthion, and Howlkor respectively, training and experimenting with BakuCores. Through this experimentation, Dan and Drago discover the abilities possibly with BakuCores. The Awesome Ones share this discovery with the viewers on their ViewTube channel.
The Awesome Ones continue training with their Bakugan, to the point of exhaustion. As the other rest, Dan is persuaded by Drago to pick up food for the team at a local Burger Joint. He and Drago debate brawling possibilities when they encounter a mysterious Bakugan and its brawler robbing the Burger Joint. These turn out to be Aay and his Ventus Mantonoid. By starting a brawl with this brawler to defend the Burger Joint, Dan discovers the Drome. Using a move that Wynton and Trox used earlier, Dan and Drago defeat Aay, receiving their meals for free in compensation. The two return to the Awesome Ones' Studio, where they collapse, exhausted from the brawl.
