Lagnus the Brave, also known as Lagnus Bishasi (ラグナス・ビシャシ) and Ragnus in the English reveal of Puyo Puyo Champions, is a "Light Warrior" from another world. He wields the Reactor Blade and serves as a counterpart to Schezo Wegey and his dark magic. He is 17, but a curse causes him to revert to a ten-year-old. He regains his maturity by leveling up (which clearing Puyo allows him to do), but the effects seem to be only temporary. He has a strong sense of heroic justice, but to an extreme fault at times.

Biography

Appearance

Lagnus has brown hair, brown eyes, and is clad in gold armor, intentionally bearing strong resemblance to classic JRPG heroes. In earlier games, however, his hair was depicted to be black. He wields the Reactor Blade, a long sword that he swings with two hands. Lagnus' age shifts between 17 and 10, the former being his default age. His armor, however, does not scale down to fit his cursed age, leading to him having movement difficulty with his ill-fitted armor.

Personality

He has a heroic disposition, not afraid to vanquish the evils of the world. He means well, and is averse to darkness. This aspect of his personality has later been exaggerated to the point of parody, making his heroic tendencies difficult to take seriously. His spirit is mature, but when he ages down, he is prone to throwing bratty fits when he isn't taken seriously.

Abilities

As a warrior, he exhibits high proficiency in swordsmanship, including techniques such as Combo Attack/Renzoku Kougeki and Ultimate Blow/Kyuukyoku no Ichigeki. He also has access to a myriad of light magic such as Holy Arrow, Mega Rave, and his most powerful attack, Final Cross. However, most of his abilities are stunted the moment he ages down.

Madou Monogatari (Saturn)

Lagnus and his backstory play a central role in the game's plot, and is questionably the main character, despite the fact Arle is the one being controlled. His starting armor in the game is 100% Light, meaning Dark attacks have no effect. He also has massive Healing capabilities.

At the beginning of the game, he ventures out to the Grand Sealing Tower to finish off the Yoggus, a dimensional creature that was bent on the destruction of his world. The player controls him for a short time at a rather high level of strength. When he reaches the top, he has no choice but to use all of his power to slay the Yoggus. Having thought he brought an end to the ongoing conflict of his world, a portal opened up making him realize the Yogs also exist in many other dimensions. He is then warped to Arle's world, sealed in a crystal by Satan to prevent him from dying, where his soul follows Schezo possessing him every now and then to help Arle and Rulue destroy the Yogs. Later on, when he is found in Arle's world, the effects of his curse finally take place. Due to expending all of his power during his first fight against the Yoggus at the Grand Sealing Tower, he could no longer resist the curse and was turned into a child. After exchanging stories, learning Arle and Rulue were also fending off the same hostile monsters, they agree to help each other.

Once their journey was over, Lagnus is given two presents from Satan, a pendent, which lets him travel back and forth from his world to Satan's world. The other present is left as a mystery to which it seems highly important to Lagnus judging by his reaction to it and Satan's words. It is also noted by the ending that he is the one telling Arle of the story that covers the Grand Sealing Tower from the prologue of the game.

Puyo Puyo Sun

In Puyo Puyo Sun, Lagnus was faced in both Arle and Schezo's stories. In Arle's story, Arle finds him killing a Puyo in order to level up. He then, much to Arle's dumb luck, challenges her to Puyo, only to have his pants fall down. In Schezo's story, Lagnus is still a teenager when he arrives (due to Arle's encounter with him earlier). Lagnus, probably knowing that Schezo is a dark warrior/wizard, charges him, but Schezo dodges. The failed attack shrinks Lagnus back into a kid again, and Schezo pokes fun at him. Lagnus then starts to have a fit and challenges Schezo.

Puyo Puyo~n

In Puyo Puyo~n, Lagnus is not part of the plot. However, he's featured in promotional group art, suggesting he was at least considered. He cameos in the Mission Mode (Nazo Puyo), where he appears in the last missions on the Normal difficulty. Winning the last mission turns him into a kid. He has only 1-2 voice clips compared to the others (except for other fellow cameos like Minotauros and Honey Bee).

In the Gameboy Color Pocket Puyo Puyo~n however, Lagnus is playable and can be challenged as a computer opponent in one of the single player modes, using a prototype design for his fighting pixel art (also only appearing in his kid form). He reuses his Puyo Puyo SUN voice clips.

Puyo Puyo Box

Lagnus, in the Quest mode, appears as the hint-giving service in the second town, directing Arle as to what to do next for the next medal. He can be challenged after defeating Harpy for some equipment. In Rally mode, two versions of him exist: one that fights with SUN rules, and one that fights with Yon rules.

Minna de Puyo Puyo

Here, Arle crosses paths with Lagnus again. Lagnus offers to protect Arle from the Dangers of Satan's castle. However, Lagnus is in his kid form, and Arle mistakes him for a child playing pretend. This angers Lagnus, so they fight another Puyo match.

Later on, he appears in the Trial Labrynth, explaining that the place is for those who wish to level up. He also explains that everyone Arle faces in the Labrynth is a illusion. He too, is an illusion. This leaves Arle in a confused state, and their 3rd and final story Puyo match together ensues.

Puyo Puyo Chronicle

In Puyo Puyo Chronicle, Lagnus is first found at Purplune Aqueduct, claiming he is a hero, in spite of Arle being the prophesied hero. He does not take the news well, challenging Arle and her group to prove himself, only to be defeated. He is later found in the final dungeon of the game, where he finds Arle and battles her again. After losing the first battle, he runs off further up the tower, to be found and battled again later, after the second battle, Lagnus will join your party. This is the last main game party member you get, and as such, he joins with the highest level.

Lagnus can only be played in story mode and Skill Battle, and cannot be chosen in any other game mode.

Trivia

  • Lagnus is one of the few Puyo characters to appear in a Madou game after his Puyo debut.
  • Lagnus first appeared in the Shin Madou Monogatari novel series before Puyo Puyo Sun.
  • Lagnus' Birthday is April 1st, which is also April Fools day.
    • This may coincide with Lagnus' running gag of being mistaken for a child or being humiliated during his cutscenes.
  • Lagnus has appeared in two games where he was only depicted in his kid form. However, both of them were on a Gameboy family handheld, and both of them featured reused SUN voice clips.
  • Lagnus is one of the few characters in Quest with more than one set of voice clips, the others being Niji Iruka and Gnome.
    • This is because he is depicted in both his kid form (original ☆3) and adult form (all other rarities) in this game.
    • Lagnus is the only character that is not a Quest-original character to do so.
  • Despite being a Light Warrior and opposite counterpart to Schezo, he is assigned the Purple color in Quest and Quest Arcade, typically associating with darkness and the same color as Schezo.
