Badlands Dan is a burgundy, bull-like creature living on Doomstone, a planet presumed inhabited by bad guys.
Wander and Sylvia winded up on planet Doomstone due to shortage of orbbal juice. Sylvia and Wander tried to act tough so they could get into the saloon and get some juice. Wander sat in a chair (more like a bar stool), that was apparently Badlands Dan's. Badlands Dan got angry and ripped a warrant off the wall saying he was a wanted man. Wander ripped of a patch of Badland's chest fur and drew himself a warrant saying he was meaner and more wanted than he was. He challenged Wander to a fight outside. Wander stole a motorcycle from the motorhogs, which him and Sylvia take off on. Sylvia and Wander got to Papa Doom's palace and they believed he's tough and Papa Doom orders them some orbble juice. Wander gave them rocks instead of crystals and they chased after them, meeting up with the bad guys once again. Wander took his mustache off and Sylvia admitted they wasn't mean and needed to return home. The enemies got mad and all admitted they all faked being tough. Badlands Dan was the first to admit and then said he missed his garden. They renamed the planet as Congenial Rock. Papa Doom gave Wander and Sylvia their juice. Badlands Dan wished that they would come again and Wander patted him on the snout bone. Badlands Dan laughed cutely and said it tickled.
Badlands Dan is seen in "The End of the Galaxy" to aid Wander and a group of rebels to fight Lord Dominator.
