For his Bakugan type, see Tigrerra.

Nova Lion (Japanese version: Sage Lao Hu (賢者ラオフー, Kenja Raofuu?)), also called Noble Lion and Nobillion, was the oldest Bakugan in Vestroia. He was a Pyrus Tigrerra.


Bakugan Battle Brawlers

He helped Dan and Drago fight Centorrior and Druman but was later defeated and then fell into lava. He survived as he is a Pyrus Bakugan but he was then killed in a later battle against Centorrior and Druman. When he first rescued Dan and Drago, he took them to his home in a cave at the base of a large cliff. There, Drago figures out that this is not just an ordinary Bakugan who has saved them but as Nova Lion later confirms with a chuckle, that he is one of the oldest Bakugan in existence. Unfortunately they would later battle Centorrior and Druman and Nova Lion would die defending Drago who he foresaw to be the next great leader of Vestroia and more: the Perfect Core of Vestroia. He also told him about how Naga and Wavern came to be and how the new Bakugan were created.

Bakugan: New Vestroia

He appeared in a flashback in episode 42 as one of the many Bakugan who gave up their lives to save Vestroia.
