|Next||Dan and Drago|
A Feud Between Friends is the third episode of Bakugan Battle Brawlers. It aired on April 18, 2007 in Japan and September 5, 2007 in North America.
Masquerade meets a young Bakugan player named Rikimaru and offers him a special Bakugan, Aquos Siege. Across town, Dan Kuso begins training for his rematch against Masquerade, but he keeps having arguments with Drago and ends his training early. Their constant bickering gets them chided by Julie Makimoto during a video call with the rest of the Battle Brawlers, while Marucho Marukura and Runo Misaki deduce that Drago's last act in the brawl surpassed the power of all Dan's Ability Cards, and that was enough to end the battle prematurely. That night, Dan dreams of brawling Masquerade (whom he calls Marmalade in his sleep), and Drago decides to stick around him, in the hopes that he can help rescue Vestroia, the home of all Bakugan.
En route to challenge Masquerade, Dan runs into Rikimaru and they brawl. On the verge of winning against him, Drago decides to ignore Dan's orders knowing that they could prove fatal, and instead uses a dangerous technique to risk himself and guarantee victory. Despite their victory, Dan is angry over Drago's lack of cooperation, curses the day he ever met Drago, and throws him into the river.
