- Bakugan Interspace gets messy when Dan learns his battling directly threatens Earth. Drago's exposure to Code Eve has infused him with incredible power, causing him to unwittingly release Mechtogan Zenthon, a new, mysterious entity that wreaks havoc whenever Drago battles! While Dan attempts to regain control over Drago's new powers, an insidious enemy builds an army of "Chaos Bakugan" engineered for total world domination! Will Dan be able to get a hold of Drago's power before it's too late?
- Bakugan City is off to a peaceful start now that humans have communed with the Bakugan from New Vestroia. This comes to an abrupt end, however, when four Mechtogan who have broken free from their Bakugan start terrorizing the place. Not only that, but some creep called Wiseman has appeared with ancient Bakugan called the Nonets. It's now up to the Battle Brawlers to stop Wiseman, the Nonets, and the Mechtogan's greatest weapon: Mechtavius Destroyer!

The fourth season contains 46 episodes in total which divided into two story arcs. The first arc contains 26 episodes and aired in February 13th. The second Arc, which contains 20 episodes aired in September 10th, a month after end of the first arc.
- This is the only Bakugan season to feature brawlers and Bakugan hailing from every planet introduced in previous seasons: Earth, New Vestroia, Vestal, Neathia, and Gundalia.
- Jason Deline, Drago’s voice actor, was the first to confirm that this would be the last season.
- Like the previous season, only Drago and the main antagonist (Razenoid) evolved. Additionally, Drago evolved only once in this season while in the others, he evolved 3 times during each.
- This is the only season without a team of six antagonist Brawlers of each Bakugan Attribute, with Wiseman in Arc 2.
- It is the only season that has Bakugan with different Attributes from previous variations.
- Arc 2 is the only season where the main Battle Brawlers use two attributes (Dan: Pyrus and Haos, Shun: Ventus and Darkus, Marucho: Aquos and Subterra).
- Arc 1 is the only season where the Battle Brawlers' main female member (Paige) did not have a crush on Dan.
- The credits of Mechtanium Surge only list voice actors for the first arc; the second arc's voice cast is uncredited.
- The season's working title, according to some early material and animation sheets, was Survival Force (サバイバルフォース). Some time later, it was changed to Mechtanium Surge, presumably a portmanteau of "mecha" and "titanium."
- The name was also seen on an image of a shirobako (internal production DVD) cover tweeted by Mechtanium Surge's character designer and chief animation director, Yoshihiro Nagamori.
