Pyra (ホムラ, Homura) is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. She was confirmed as a playable fighter alongside Mythra during the February 17th, 2021 Nintendo Direct, and is scheduled for release in March 2021 as part of Fighters Pass Vol. 2. A character showcase is scheduled for March 4th, 2021 (March 5th, 2021 in some time zones). Pyra is classified as Fighter #79.
Skye Bennett reprises her role as Pyra in English, while Shino Shimoji reprises her role in Japanese.
Role in World of Light
Despite their status as downloadable content, Pyra and Mythra do have a legitimate role in World of Light, as they appear in the base game as spirits in the Light Realm and the Final Battle respectively, meaning that they were vaporized by Galeem. The Pyra spirit can be purchased for 10,000SP in Anna's Emporium once Anna's spirit has been defeated. Purchasing this spirit does not unlock her and Mythra as a playable character; rather, they are unlocked after downloading them and freeing at least 10 other fighters from Galeem's control, just like other DLC characters.
Pyra's fighter spirit can be obtained by completing Classic Mode. It is also available periodically for purchase in the shop for 500 coins, but only after she has been downloaded. Unlocking her in World of Light allows the player to preview the second spirit below in the Spirit List.
Additionally, Pyra has a support spirit as part of Ultimate's base game.
