It all began when one day random cards fell out of the sky. Dan, the main character and some of his friends invent a game using the cards and in the process they become the Bakugan Battle Brawlers. They then find themselves fighting for the fate of Vestroia against some nasty characters - Bakugan Naga, Hal-G and Masquerade.
