Akwimos, Various episodes

Akwimos, Hopper (ホッパー, Hoppā?) in the Japanese version, is a merman-like Bakugan. In Bakugan Battle Brawlers: New Vestroia, he appears as Phantom Data and is used by Spectra Phantom to test Dan Kuso's JetKor. Later, in Bakugan: Gundalian Invaders, his true form serves as Marucho Marukura's Partner Bakugan. His Battle Gear is Gigarth.



Akwimos partners with Marucho of the Bakugan Battle Brawlers. He has powers that can't be beat when it comes to underwater battles. Akwimos can create devastating attacks using water energy balls. With his claws tucked under both hands, he can break and nullify the powers of the Gate Card. Friends think he's very comical and funny.


Bakugan Battle Brawlers: New Vestroia[edit]

Akwimos first appeared in Phantom Data Attack along with Aranaut, Coredem, and Hawktor. It somehow showed up in Bakugan Interspace as Phantom Data.[1] Spectra later uses the clone to battle against Dan for a final test on JetKor.[2]

Bakugan: Gundalian Invaders[edit]

Akwimos' digital clone battled Rubanoid and Phosphos with Helix Dragonoid, but was defeated after Phosphos used Tri Viper on it.[3]

It is revealed that Akwimos' and the others digital clones are clones of Neathian Bakugan after they hear Aranaut talk.[4]

His digital clone fought Linehalt and won after a long battle using Gigarth. After it beat Ren, Ren shows the brawlers what his Gundalian body looked like and established that they were not friends anymore.[5]

Marucho programmed the digital Akwimos to speak and gave it a laid-back personality. The computer came up with the random phrase "Cool is the rule, dude!", and he quickly annoyed Drago by following him around and repeating that phrase. Later Fabia gave the brawlers the original Bakugan that the digital clones were based on. Akwimos got along quickly with Marucho. He found the digital Akwimos's phrase nice, and it has since become his catchphrase. He fought Rubanoid and Buz Hornix alongside the real Coredem and won by using Gigarth.[6]

Akwimos battled against Lythirus. The battle ended up as a tie when Lythirus and Stoica were sent back to Gundalia along with the other Gundalians.[7]

He appeared again along with Coredem and battled Strikeflier and Avior. After failing to beat Strikeflier, Marucho had Akwimos use "Elemental Blue" to create a wall of ice so he could freeze the opponents in their place so Marucho and Jake could get the chance to leave.[8]

Akwimos battled with Aranaut against both Linehalt and Sabator. However, before they finished their battle, the Sacred Orb sent out a dimensional twister and ended the battle.[9]

Akwimos battled Lythirus, who had Razoid, along with other Aquos Bakugan, alongside Coredem, but then Gill and Krakix joined in the battle.[10]

Akwimos attacked Gundalia Castle alongside Dragonoid Colossus, Hawktor; and Blitz Dragonoid. After they entered the castle, Akwimos, Marucho, Hawktor, and Shun were separated from Dan and Drago, who had been trapped somewhere in the castle. They escaped and battled Strikeflier and Krakix. They knocked out Strikeflier but were unable to defeat Krakix.[11]

He battled Coredem, who had used Rock Hammer. He also used Gigarth and ended the battle in a draw.[12]

He battled Strikeflier. He also used Gigarth and they didn't finish the battle in the episode.[13]

He continued his battle with Strikeflier, but retreated with Marucho due to seeing Dan and Jake.[14]

He battled against Lumagrowl, Lythirus, Krakix, and Strikeflier alongside Blitz Dragonoid, Dragonoid Colossus, Hawktor, Aranaut, Linehalt, and Coredem.[15]

He fought Contestir until Kazarina's death snaps Contestir out of his hypnosis. The minor twelve orders then joined the Castle Knights.[16]

He fights Phantom Dharak using the ability Spiral Pressure but is defeated.[17]

He emotionally says goodbye to Marucho, since he has to stay on Neathia while Marucho goes back home.[18]
