Shun is a boy who is the former first ranked Bakugan brawler who later moves down to the 2nd position, then 3rd after Dan beats him so Drago can evolve. He has black hair and a long black ponytail and wears a purple jacket. He is a master of Bakugan, he helped Dan make the rules, and is also Dan's childhood best friend. Shun is a loner, a boy of very few words, but yet is willing to help his friends at almost every turn. He is a Ventus battler. He approaches Bakugan like a ninja. He lives with his grandfather (who used to be a famous ninja warrior when back in the day) who once expected Shun to follow in his footsteps instead of playing Bakugan. His Guardian Bakugan is a Ventus Skyress whom Shun received from his sick mother who dies in the hospital. Skyress then evolves in to Ventus Storm Skyress. Shun once leaves the brawlers when Dan says they don't need him. But after brawling Komba, Dan appears and asks for forgiveness which Shun accepts.
