Badges are labels representing Spectrobes or characters, that appear only in Spectrobes: Beyond the Portals. They were used as logos appearing alongside user names in Wireless and Wi-Fi battles. To obtain them, a player must have the data of the Spectrobe in the Database or have encountered the character in the game's storyline, then purchase the corresponding badges from Wakaba's shop on the planet Kollin, from Cyrus on Nessa or at hexagon-shaped dispensers on other planets.
All badges are conformed to a hexagonal shape, some having art bulging out of the edges. Imagery of each Spectrobe often depicts some key feature (such as golden claws for Spikanor), whereas all character imagery are mugshots. Most spectrobe badges cost 100 Gura each, but Cyrus's badges cost 300 Gura each for ordinary spectrobes, 2,500 or 3,500 Gura for the secret spectrobes and all character badges have a fairly high cost, with the most expensive being Krux's, at 8,000 Gura.
