Bagura is one of Bomberman's more recurring villains and arguably his nemesis, first appearing in Bomberman '94 and becoming the main villain of many Bomberman titles since then.
Appearing to be an eldery man Bagura is also a scientist, as is evident by his official title of "Professor Bagura", he created many evil Bombermen and is a brilliant (if mad) scientist whose origins appear to lay deep within the mysteries of space and time.
In most of his appearances Bagura is obsessed with conquering the universe and is already the leader of the Hige Hige Bandits and is both a capable scientist and a dark magician - he is also a villain who will stop at nothing to achieve his goals.
After being destroyed by Bomberman, he was revived by Nitros in Bomberman Hero, who was brainwashed by Evil Bomber. In this game, he is referred to as Bagular. Bomberman fought Bagular, destroying his body, but his spirit entered a computer which then became part of a tank. In the end Bomberman destroyed him, but in a final attempt to take Bomberman down with him, he blew up Garaden Star. Bomberman escaped, however.
