Buy Bakugan Mantris Online

The Basics

Mantris is by far one of the most interesting bakugan relative to the earlier bakugan. As some might have guessed, Mantris looks like the praying mantis in the real world. He has two flicking front arms connected with two joints. However, this feature doesn’t give it a chance of knocking another bakugan off of its gate card. This always results in an automatic win for the roller. However, it is amusing watching it attacks the enemy when opening.

On the other hand, Mantris is not very complex and besides the four legs, he has no other features whatsoever. The head is very colorful though. You can find it in purple, red, green, gold, even metallic. And the eyes are always different. The body is always neon, and can be translucent and pearl. My Mantris is 450G’s, but it can go as high as 620. They are very colorful and unique. Furthermore, Mantris is a powerful bakugan. In fact, one of his abilities, Marionette, was featured on a real life ability card, only any bakugan can use it, not just Mantris.

Mantris in Episodes

Mantris was seen in episode one, where he battled Dan and a Pyrus Serpenoid. Although at first Serpenoid was prevailing, the opponent opened up a Subterra gate card which increased his power level by 100G’s. Then Mantris defeated Serpenoid. In the show, Mantris appeared many times in battles, so over time their power went from 290, to 390G’s. Also, in episode 36, Masquerade made his first move by sending the opponents Darkus Centipoid to another gate card. After that, he battled Exedra by doubling his power level with a gate character card. Unfortunately, Alice used “Demon Wizard” that canceled his character and used Wormquake's power to add to his. Therefore, Mantris lost. But I still believe that he is a very powerful bakugan. The bakugan has five abilities named Twin Machete, Sling Blazer, Marionette, Slice Cutter, and Doom Companion. These cards make him very strong in battle.

Mantris Bakugan Features

The most recognizable feature in Mantris is the two front arms that extend forward to attack. This makes Mantris looks quite fierce. They are needed to be folded in in order to close the bakugan. Mantris also has a long thick neck and an arachnid head. His eyes are large and this color is always different from the body. Unlike most bakugan, Mantris has four small legs you have to pop out in order for it to stand up properly. The rest of the body is simple and the design is not very special. However, they come in all different colors you probably would not find from any other bakugan. I know that Mantris’ color variation is very specific. A brown Subterra Mantris has a gold head and green eyes along with darker brown marks on the body; a blue Aquos Mantris has a red head and green eyes mixed with green marks on the body; a green Ventus Mantris has a purple head with yellow eyes, the marks on the body is also green, but darker and glitters; a gray Haos one has a blue head with red eyes and golden body marks; a black Darkus Mantris has a green head with red eyes and purple body marks; a red Pyrus Mantris is more exciting, since it has a silver head that resembles metal, the eyes are black and body marks are printed golden red; a pearl Mantris has a green head with red eyes, and the marks on the body are in dark green. If you have a translucent one, most likely it is a lime green. Out of all the color variations, I personally feel the most exciting ones are Pyrus, Darkus, and Pearl; the lime green translucent one may sound and look interesting in picture, but it is really not that exciting in person. The main reason is the material is more like opaque and foggy; it was not made clear, which is disappointing. To me, other colors are not that appealing. When I got my own Aquos Mantris, I felt somewhat disappointed. If you are a collector and loves Mantris in particular, then I’d say get them all; otherwise, I would recommend to buy red, black, and pearl if you have to pay for high prices.

Where to Buy Mantris

Mantris has always been considered as uncommon. When it just came out, it was often sold for much higher prices than other same generation bakugan. They are no longer sold in stores now, but you can get it online as always. If you watch out all the time on ebay, you might get lucky to buy one for just 99 cents from one of those Chinese sellers; but mostly getting one for $5 is considered a great deal since they often cost a lot more elsewhere, even on ebay itself.
