—Balista, taunting Wiseman
Balsita is a lizard-like creature that shows no mercy during battle. He is evil and enjoys watching other Bakugan suffer. However, he has a grueling respect for Worton.
In Evil Arrival, he appeared in the Doom Dimension along with the other Nonets, telling the evil Mechtogan, Coredegon, Slycerak, Exostriker, and Mandibor not to doubt Professor Worton (whom he refers to as "all-seeing" and "all-knowing").
In Wiseman Cometh, he and the other Nonets were freed from the Doom Dimension by Wiseman. He then fought the Battle Brawlers along with other Nonets but he barely battled since he didn't attack any of the Brawlers Bakugan. He helped summon the evil Mechtogan and was defeated alongside the other Nonets when they lost control of Mechtavius Destroyer.
In Enemy Allies, he battled the Brawlers along with the other Nonets. He helped summon the evil Mechtogan and was defeated when Mechtavius Destroyer lost the battle.
In Battle Suit Bash Wiseman offered to bring him into battle with the Darkus Nonets, but he refused. This was so he could find out what Wiseman was hiding from the Nonets. After finding a secret door, he discovered Gunz Lazar tangled in vines of some sort.
In Countdown to Doomsday, he battled the Brawlers along with the other Nonets. He then fused into Volkaos and battled Magmafury. He helped summon the evil Mechtogan and was later transported back to Wiseman's headquarters along with the other Nonets when Mechtavius Destroyer defeated Dragonoid Destroyer.
In The Eve of Extermination, he wanted to show Worton the secret room where Gunz was located. Worton then told Balista to forget what he had seen and to focus on the current situation. After saying that, he flew away and didn't see the room. Balista later battled the Brawlers along with the other Nonets and helped them summon the evil Mechtogan. He was later defeated when Mechtavius Destroyer lost the battle.
He made his final appearance in Enemy Infiltration, where he and the rest of the Nonets summoned Slycerak, Mandibor, and Exostriker. Later he tried to find out what Gunz knew about Wiseman but he was tricked by Wiseman and killed soon after Wiseman showed him his true identity, which was revealed to be Coredegon.
