Farakspin is a 'pop-up and spin' Super Assault Bakugan. It has multiple wings allowing it to fly far distances without ever landing. Its small size makes it difficult to catch. Farakspin's eyes allow it to see exceptionally well at night. It also generates a destructive tornado by rotating the four wings on his body at high speed.
Glider has no confidence in his first appearance, being bullied for it. Splice and Slash eventually help him man up, with him turning into a friendly joker. That friendly attitude is also what develops his friendship with Hikari.
In Danger Ahead..., Glider appears during battle with another Farakspin. BC, Aquos Rules, Darkusinfinity99 and Slash watch the brawl and Glider losing it. Glider is extremely embarassed, asking them why they are his "fans". Slash explains they were just wandering in the woods together until coming across him, watching the battle. Aqua then suggests they train Glider. In the evening, Slash and Splice train Glider in the evening, for 6 hours. The next day, he tags with them against the other Farakspin, winning. Glider then joins BC as his Bakugan, due to his bond with Slash and Splice.
