丸蔵兆治, Marucho
Attribute: Aquos Guardian Bakugan: Preyas Elfin Dual Elfin Angelo/Diablo Akwimos Tristar 11Bakuganand believed to now be about 14 For an eleven year old Marucho is wise beyond his years. Studious he studies the strategy of Bakugan as well as being a bit of a walking encyclopedia. Marucho is the only son of a millionaire. In the Bakugan battles Marucho devises strategy based on indepth data analysis but sometimes misjudges his spurof themoment decisions based only on data. As a sidekick to Dan Marucho helps work out which Bakugan would be best to pit against onersquos opponent. He worries about all of the Brawlers but especially Dan. Marucho is a master of combination play and uses water attributes in battle. He is a wealthy generous boy who specializes in Aquos. He is the brain of the Brawlers a real walking encyclopedia. He loves to play Bakugan and work on strategies. He use to be extremely obedient to his parents out of fear but that changed when he joined the Brawlers however he is still very obedient. He now has no regrets for the past realizing that he only wanted to make his parents happy. Marucho has a butler named Kato. His Guardian Bakugan is Aquos Preyas which he obtains when Preyas crashes his house party which was thrown after he moved into Dan039s town. Preyas was sent to the Doom Dimension in Marucho039s battle with Klaus Von Hertzon which made Marucho want Preyas back so much that when Klaus opened up his portal Marucho followed him. Later when Klaus shows up with Preyas Dan and Runo find a way to get Preyas back by using the ability Pure Light. Preyas evolved into a twosided Bakugan called Angelo and Diablo by coughing them up. Unlike the other Bakugan however Preyas multiplies when he evolves so Marucho got to keep the old Preyas. He multiplied into Angelo/Diablo Preyas. Preyas also has a move called quotChange of Attributequot with which he can take advantage of the opponentrsquos gate card. When Marucho was being tested by Frosch he had to fight an old version of himself the one who always listened to his parents. This sickened him but he was able to accept his past and how it made him who he is today and passes the test. When he brawled against Dan with Preyas and Angelo/Diablo Preyas he was ranked seventh. Preyas Angelo/Diablo are not in New Vestroia. Marucho returns in New Vestroia following Dan and Drago into the new world. When the Vexos attack first against Dan and Mira he stands back and observes the new way of battling. Marucho later goes to the Resistance headquarters and gains new clothes. By episode 4 Marucho is disappointed with himself as he is part of the Resistance yet doesn039t have an Aquos Bakugan Either Mira Baron and Ace weren039t able to catch one or lost the ones they had in the English version they say they don039t have any Pyrus Bakugan. Marucho decides to leave for a bit so that he can look for one. While walking through a jungle he is caught in a trap set up by a Bakugan called Elfin who resembles Sailor Moon. Elfin gives him some food while she explains about how she knew Preyas before he got captured. Marucho than decides that they should team up but Elfin wants Marucho to prove himself that he039s really the quotright partnerquot for her. Bakugan: Gundalian Invaders: Added by TwinStarHe is the most intelligent of the brawlers and has a new outfit in Gundalian Invaders. His new Guardian Bakugan will be Akwimos. After Ren gave him a new Phantom Data Marucho created Bakugan Interspace which allowed all brawlers around the world to battle each other. In episode 1 it is revealed that Marucho has Aquos Trister from Gundalia. Also he turned over administrative duties of Bakugan Interspace to the system allowing it to expand but also attracting sleazy characters such as a card dealer named Dylan. He observes Dan039s battle against Ben but then sends out Trister to stabilize the arena when Drago loses control of his powers. In episode 2 he is seen battling Jack Punt a member of Team Anubias. At first he and Trister were struggling but were starting to come back before Zenthon appeared. They tried battling him but Trister was defeated by Zenthon039s laser blast. The battle was declared a draw due to Zenthon039s interference. He comments later quotthat Mechtogan has the same destructive power as Dragoquot.
