New Vestroia Handbook
A cross between an amphibian and a fairy with a long tail, wing-like flippers, and webbed hands and feet.
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
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
When Elfin met Preyas, it was a perfect match. They're both outgoing and like to joke around, especially when things get tough.
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.
She seems to care quite a bit about appearance, telling Marucho that her ideal Brawler partner should look his best and be in good shape. Also, when she battles, like Preyas she can change her Attribute. So far the only Attribute changes seen in the Anime were Darkus and Ventus. Elfin reveals she has a parasol for keeping cool, while in the desert with Marucho. It is revealed that she knew Preyas before he was captured by the Vestals. She has a crush on him since she says that it was "love at first sight" when she first met him.
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 Return of a Friend, He is shown battling alongside Mega Nemus against Neo Dragonoid in a training battle. Nemus fires blasts which Drago doges then uses an unknown ability which is not shown. The ending of the battle was never shown.
In Surprise Visitor and Gate Crashers, she faced off against Sylvee under the command of Shadow Prove. When Sylvee attacked Dan Kuso and Runo Misaki she felt angry for getting ignored. She then got ready to fight. Sylvee used Darkus Stream which caused Elfin to change to Darkus. She then used moon Rainbow which blasted right though Sylvee giving her the win.
In Final Countdown, Elfin along with Ingram and Thunder Wilda almost crack the code to free Hydranoid, Skyress, Tigrerra, Gorem, and Preyas. Elfin then 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!"

- Elfin has some strange personality quirks as when she finishes off a Bakugan, she will strike a pose very similar to the one of Sailor Moon. Her looks also resemble the character.
- Elfin's frog head looks like Usagi Tsukino's hair from the anime Sailor Moon. Usagi's clips are represented by Elfin's frog head's eyes and her hair is represented by the fins out of Elfin's frog head.
- When Elfin appears she does a thing similar to Sailor Moon's transformation, Moon Prism Power, Makeup!
- Also, some of the cast members of Bakugan also were in the DiC dub of Sailor Moon.

- From episodes 4-21 was Elfin's original voice. From episodes 22-52, Elifn's voice changes and sounds higher and more feminine.
- 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.

- Elfin is the only female Bakugan in the main lineup in New Vestroia.
- In the anime, she has five fingers, while in the game she has three.
- Her name is based on elves, mischievous mythical creatures.
- Elfin and Preyas have the same basic ball form, probably due to how Preyas said that she is part of the Preyas family of Bakugan.
- It is interesting to note that when she first met Marucho while they were about to battle Mylene, she told him that she would agree to a temporary partnership whereas after they, as well as the other Brawlers, destroyed the three Dimension Controllers, she sounded more interested in being Marucho's Bakugan for longer.
- In Bakugan: 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.
