Elfin, Various episodes

Elfin (エルフィン, Erufin?) is an elf-like Bakugan with a frog head on top of her normal head. She is Marucho Marukura's Partner Bakugan in Bakugan Battle Brawlers: New Vestroia. In the second arc, after obtaining the Aquos Attribute Energy from Frosch, she evolves into Minx Elfin.

Elfin also appears in the New Vestroia-based video game, Bakugan: Defenders of the Core.



"Elfin tests Marucho to prove he is a worthy partner. Can change attributes to gain an advantage during battle. Protects the Bakugan in the forest from the Vexos. Can shoot arrows out of its fingers."

New Vestroia Handbook[edit]


A cross between an amphibian and a fairy with a long tail, wing-like flippers, and webbed hands and feet.

Battle Style[edit]

Elfin can choose from Aquos, Ventus, and Darkus attributes in battle. She loves to turn the tables on her opponents with a quick attribute change.

Where You've Seen Her[edit]

Marucho made a promise to himself to win back Preyas, battle the Vexos, and save New Vestroia. But he couldn't do it without a Bakugan to brawl with. While searching the woods of New Vestroia, he encountered Elfin. She refused to join him at first, but changed her mind when Mylene showed up to steal the Bakugan in the forest. Elfin and Marucho have been brawling together ever since.

What You Should Know[edit]

When Elfin met Preyas, it was a perfect match. They're both outgoing and like to joke around, especially when things get tough.

Ultimate Handbook[edit]

Elfin has a sense of humor and a lot of energy in battle-just like her good friend, Preyas. Elfin's attribute changing power gives her an advantage over almost any opponent. She can also shoot arrows from her frog-like fingers.


Bakugan Battle Brawlers: New Vestroia[edit]

In Marucho's Mission, it is shown she protects the Bakugan in the forest from the Vexos. She later tested Marucho to prove his worthiness as a partner. Together they battled the Aquos Vexos member Mylene Farrow with Elfin facing off against Abis Omega, then Clawcer and Stug at the same time and then facing the Bakugan Trap Tripod Theta. While Elfin was able to defeat her first three opponents without getting into a serious jam, she was overpowered by Tripod Theta and would have been captured if not for the intervention of Ingram and Shun Kazami who were nearby.

In Surprise Visitor and Gate Crashers, she faced off against Sylvee under the command of Shadow Prove and after a relatively tough fight emerged victorious.

In Duel in the Dunes, Elfin lost a brawl against Mega Brontes and Volt due to the ability Aurora Dimension, but she was not taken due to the power level difference only being 400 Gs.

Also, Elfin's voice changed in Underground Take Down to a more bubbly and spunky version of her previous cute and sweet one. Elfin tags with Ingram to battle Elico and Hades and they win.

In Final Countdown, Elfin along with Ingram and Thunder Wilda almost crack the code to free Hydranoid, Skyress, Tigrerra, Gorem and Preyas. Elfin trips and accidentally cracks the code. Then Elfin, Ingram and Wilda dance in a ring: Elfin: "I'm so brilliant!". Ingram: "Yes you are!". Wilda: "Victory! Well done!"

In Reunion, she and Preyas fight over who's Marucho's Partner Bakugan, Marucho resolves their argument by letting both of them be his Partner Bakugan.

In Six Degrees of Destruction, Elfin evolves due to the Six Ancient Soldiers giving their Attribute Energies to Drago and the others. Elfin gained Frosch's Attribute Energy and evolved to Minx Elfin.

  • Elfin's design and mannerisms are heavily based on Usagi Tsukino/Sailor Moon, the main character of the popular Sailor Moon series. She imitates Usagi's odango hair with the fins extending from her frog head, while the frog head's eyes take the place of Sailor Moon's hairclips. When she is rolled, she undergoes a "transformation sequence" very similar to Sailor Moon's "Moon Prism Power, Make Up!" After she finishes off a Bakugan, Elfin strikes a pose very clearly parodied off Sailor Moon's famous "In the name of the moon, I will punish you!"
  • Just like Preyas, she uses a parody of Hokuto Hyakuretsu Ken, a deadly martial arts technique from the anime Fist of the North Star, when she uses Shooting Stardust.
  • Along with Preyas and Elico, Elfin is fully animated and her mouth moves when she talks.
  • Elfin is the only female Partner Bakugan in New Vestoria.
  • In the anime, she has five fingers, while in the game she has three.
  • She is part of the Preyas family of Bakugan, and as a result shares a basic ball form with him.
  • In Defenders of the Core, she is the second non-Trap Bakugan to battle the player (the first is Maxus Dragonoid in Interspace), although she is the first non-Trap Bakugan to battle the player under Vexos control.


The word elfin is an English word for things related to elves. It can also be used to refer to people, usually younger and with an "attractively mischievous or strange charm."[9]
