Bakugan Battle Brawlers is a Japanese anime cartoon series that was first shown in 2007. Full of action adventure and fantasy, the series followed the experiences of six friends who continually fight to save Earth from evil forces that threaten to destroy it. The group of friends find metallic cards that have fallen from the sky and so develop a game of strategy using the cards and magnetic spring-loaded miniature figures, representing the Bakugan who appear on Earth in the form of marbles to help the friends to defend planet Earth and restore peace to both worlds. The word Bakugan comes from the Japanese words 'baku' meaning 'to explode' and 'gan' meaning 'sphere.' They are small spheres that pop open to reveal small fighting creatures. The magnetic clasps inside each ball allows them to pop open when they roll across a metal surface such as those that are hidden inside the Bakugan Cards.

In a game each player takes it in turns to lay their cards out ensuring that they have one full edge touching another card. Then the players take turns to shoot their Bakugan onto the cards. When one Bakugan from each player stands open on a card, they do battle by comparing the G Power values. The winner of the battle takes the card and both Bakugan and play continues until there are no more cards. The objective of the game is to capture three of the opponent's Gate cards. The game has spawned numerous accessories, such as carry clips to store three Bakugan marbles at a time, launchers to fire the marbles at the game arena, soft plastic and hard plastic play area mats and special gauntlets to store cards with built-in calculators to allow players to quickly calculate "G-Power" totals.
