BakuTech! Bakugan[edit]

Kilan Leoness is used by Koh Grif.

Physical Game[edit]

  • Type: Defense and Occupied

Kilan Leoness is equipped with BakuTech Convert System in which the Cross on its tail can be converted. Its low center of gravity and metal features makes all shooting attacks powerless against it. Stickers are used to decorate the convertible parts of Kilan Leoness. It has a pure white main color instead of Grey like other Haos Bakugan.

In Japan, its Haos BakuTech version in BTC-08 and BTC-17 comes with 510 Gs, 520 Gs, or 560 Gs. In BTC-20, its G version comes with 560 Gs. The version from BTC-17 only includes a Metal Cross, while the original release (BTC-08) had a Normal Cross too.

Pentagon Parameter[edit]

  • Attack: 6/10
  • Defense: 9/10
  • Occupy Force: 8/10
  • Control: 4/10

  • Pose of Claw (爪の構え, tsume no kamae?): The pose in which one of Kilan Leoness' rear leg is closed.
