Monarus is a butterfly-like Bakugan. Monarus, like other Ventus attributed Bakugan, is one of the fastest Bakugan thanks to its large wings and ultra light weight. It has the ability to fly beyond Gate Cards. Its enormous butterfly wings can create a mighty hurricane wind to defeat its opponents.
Bakugan Official Handbook
Don't let the pretty Monarus fool you. Just because this Bakugan resembles a butterfly with its beautiful wings doesn't mean it can't do real damage in a brawl.
Bakugan Ultimate Handbook
This Bakugan looks like a beautiful butterfly, but don't be fooled by its good looks. When it flaps its wings, it can create a mighty hurricane wind to blow its opponents away! Lightweight Monarus is a super fast flyer, and it can soar right over a Gate card to escape its effects.

- Its name and appearance are based on the Monarch Butterfly.
- There are a variety of things about Monarus that change, such as, the ovals on the back of its wings sometimes vanish, they are also sometimes diamond-shaped, also the yellow is sometimes close together, or spread out, its head is sometimes smaller, sometimes one of its eyes is bigger than the other, and a few other things.
- In the DS version of the Video Game, a Pyrus Monarus is orange with red on the top screen, but it is red with orange on the touch screen, a Haos Monarus has a bit of an inverted color scheme and a Ventus Monarus appears normal, probably because it is Ventus in the anime.
- In the anime, Ventus Monarus has red eyes, but while in the game, it has yellow eyes.
- Monarus and Ravenoid are the only two minor Bakugan from season 1 that have an game exclusive evolution in season 2.
- Monarus' rising battle cry in the Wii video game sounds like something Sirenoid might make.
