Percival (パーシバル, Pāshibaru?)[1] is Ace Grit's Partner Bakugan in Bakugan: New Vestroia.



Percival is a wicked monster who uses his cape for invisibility and shoots plasma bullets from his three mouths. He also creates a black tornado with purple sparks to thrash his challenger. Percival has two dragon head wrist guards, and his body is covered in armor-plated steel. The horns sticking out from his head and shoulders are unbreakable. Percival has a special bond with Ace. Together, they battle to free the enslaved Bakugan.[2]

Often confused as a three-headed dragon, the two secondary "dragon heads" are actually gauntlet designs. The toy also looks like he has wings even though the character instead has just a cape. Upon further examination, one can assume that they are his shoulder horns.


Bakugan: New Vestroia[edit]

Percival first appeared in Facing Ace, where he battled Neo Dragonoid. The battle ended in a draw.

In What's the Plan?, he battled alongside Shun and Ingram in the Vexos Tournament against The Dark Angels. Although their initial inability to work together almost led to their defeat, they put aside their differences to win against their opponents.

In Freedom Run, he and Ingram fought Brontes and Altair, he ends up battling Mega Brontes. Although Brontes seems to overpower him, it was just an act, and Percival beats Brontes so the Resistance could have enough power to make the Alpha City Dimension Controller reach critical mass, allowing it to be destroyed. Upon the Controller's destruction, Percival and the other Bakugan regained their physical form.

In Voices in the Night, Ace was lured out by Shadow Prove's trap, and ended up fighting Mylene and Elico. They were easily defeated by Mylene, who captured him. The episode revealed Percival's history with Ace; Ace, rumored to be a powerful brawler, was sought out by Mira. When she defeated Ace, she gave Percival to him, and there Ace learned that Bakugan were intelligent creatures.

Last One Standing reveals that he was with Ace, trapped in a pod.

In Beta City Blues, when Ace and the others were freed, their Bakugan were out of the belts. They were informed that Drago and Nemus broke the Beta City Dimension Controller. Percival and the rest of the Resistance Bakugan returned to physical form and escaped.

In Wall To Wall Brawl, he and Neo Dragonoid battled against Mira and Gus, who were using mechanical Bakugan. Although they were pressed, they were able to win with superior skills and with Mira's assistance.

In Ultimate Bakugan, Percival saved Ace from falling from the sky palace, suspending Ace while in ball form.

In Six Degrees of Destruction, Percival evolved when the Six Ancient Soldiers gave their Attribute Energies to Drago and the others. Percival gained Exedra's Attribute Energy and evolved into Knight Percival.
