Pyrus (Legacy)

From The Bakugan Wiki
Original Pyrus symbol

Pyrus, Nova (ノヴァ, Novu~a?) in the Japanese version, is the attribute of Fire found on Bakugan. It is found in both the original attribute system and the new system.

Pyrus can be found at the inner core of the universe and is inhabited by Bakugan who draw their strength from the blazing heat that surrounds them. It is within these deep recesses of molten rock that their intensity is forged. Never one to waste even a second, the Pyrus blitz their enemies from every angle like a raging firestorm.

Bakugan Battle Brawlers[edit]

The Legendary Soldier of Pyrus was Apollonir before he transferred his Attribute Energy to Drago.


For Pyrus Bakugan, the main point of them is to simply overpower through sheer force and shutting down ways your opponent can fight back like gate card bonuses or Ability Cards. Due to this, nullifying cards like Rikimaru's Surprise or Stand Off are very useful to stop your opponent from fighting back with ability cards or Gate effects and Stand Off also gives a great Pyrus Bonus.

  • The original Pyrus symbol was derived from the Han for the Japanese character for fire, (hi?).
  • In the English dub, Diablo Preyas once says he is "part Nova," which is the Japanese name for Pyrus.
  • The video game-exclusive Omega Leonidas' Gate Card is strongest in Pyrus and Aquos.


The English name, Pyrus, comes from the Ancient Greek πῦρ. The Japanese name, Nova, stems from the English term nova, which is an astrological event that creates a bright explosion.
