Aurelus is a mysterious Faction introduced in Bakugan Battle Planet. Aurelus Bakugan have a gold color scheme alongside high B-Power and Damage rating but do not have Ability Cards (besides Evo Cards) currently to counter this. Aurelus Bakugan come with Aurelus Character Cards but come with a Faction Card based on the the Bakugan's Faction from the anime. For example, Hydorous is Aquos in the anime, so a solo Bakugan Ultra pack of Aurelus Hydorous Ultra comes with Counter Aquos, a card of the Aquos Faction.
Aurelus Bakugan are generally more powerful than other Factions in terms of B-Power and Damage. However, they have virtually no support in the game, with the only Aurelus-attributed cards in the first two expansions being Evo Cards. The third expansion, Age of Aurelus, focuses on exploring Aurelus Bakugan and features the first Aurelus action cards.
There are no Aurelus users in the Bakugan Battle Planet anime currently. In fact, Aurelus Bakugan seem to be mysterious as Lia and her partner Bakugan encountered a golden bird Bakugan in Rubbed the Wrong Way and didn't know what it was. The only known Aurelus Bakugan are Pyravian, Tiko, and Tryhno (who have no owners ,although the latter was retrieved in ball form by Benton).
- This is the first new Attribute (now called Faction) to be introduced into the Bakugan game since the pre-HSP release of Bakugan Battle Brawlers.
Aurelus comes from "aurum", the Latin word for gold, in reference to the gold primary color of an Aurelus Bakugan.
