AnimeBakugan: New VestroiaIn the anime he's actually Neo Dragonoid Vortex in ball form, but his real form is Neo Dragonoid
Drago became Neo Dragonoid Vortex inBakugan Battle Brawlers: New Vestroia when the Six Legendary Soldiers extracted him from the Perfect Core. He is presumed to have lost his Infinity and Silent Core abilities due to have them put back as cores.
He then traveled to the human world and met Dan, Marucho, Runo, and Julie in a park. Drago then tricked Julie, Runo, and Marucho to turn around so he and Dan can escape to New Vestroia.However Marucho heard them and he jumped into the vortex after them.
Drago has the power to not only use the standard single and double abilities, it has the power to use the rare Triple Ability power. Drago has used this against Primo Vulcan in Dan's battle with Gus.
In anime when his ball form opens he spins. When he is released a pillar of fire appears burning down most opponents' Bakugan,though this was only shown in the first and second episode.
Starting from episode 6 he used Perfect Core Abilities, which are more powerful than regular Ability cards. His first perfect core ability was Strike Dragon.
In episode 9, Dan throws Drago and he hits the Alpha City switch and blows the controller.
In episode 16, Drago was taken from Dan by Spectra due to a Forbidden Cardthat Spectra used on Helios.
In episode 18, Drago is turned into Dark Neo Dragonoid and uses forbidden Abilities just like Viper Helios. Later in episode, he is defeated by Apollonir and goes back to Dan.
In episode 20, Drago and Mega Nemus face Hades and Elico and wins due to a new Perfect Core Ability, "Dragon Contender" and destroys the Beta City controller.
In episode 22, Drago andPercival face Mira and Gus who were using mechanical Bakugan Traps, but wins all of them and destroys the Gamma City controller with the help of Percival, Ingram, Elfin, and Nemus.
In episode 24, Drago saves Dan from dropping when they reverted to ball form due to Prince Hydron's Dimension Controller. Later Drago faces Maxus Helios and Dan had no choice but to use the mechanical Bakugan as well.He combines with them to form Maxus Dragonoid and starts the battle.
In episode 25, the battle continued on and still no winner was determined.
In episode 26, neither Drago nor Helios won. No result was determined. Even though the battle was terminated, Helios still wanted to fight. That was yet another draw. He also goes to Earth with Dan and the others. He learned that he could open adimensional gate by himself. He also learned that he was almost as powerful as the Perfect Core itself. That meant he could separate from the Core.
In episode 27, Drago evolves due to the Six Legendary Soldiers giving their Attribute Energies to him and the others. When Drago gained Apollonir's attribute energy he evolved into Cross Dragonoid.
