|~ Pyrrha Nikos|
Pyrrha Nikos is a famous, level-headed, and highly-skilled student at Beacon Academy. She wields a rifle/javelin/sword combination weapon called Miló and a shield called Akoúo̱, and has the unique ability to control magnetism. Prior to her tenure at Beacon, she graduated from Sanctum Academy with highest honors and had a record number of wins at the Mistral Regional Tournament. More so, she is seen as a warrior who's seemingly untouchable to the point where she is believed to be "fated for victory"; meaning she has never been defeated by any of her classmates, past or present, due to her semblance, which she hides from everyone except her friends. Despite her accomplishments, she is very good-natured and looks after her teammates, especially Jaune. Due to her reputation, she has found forming relationships with others difficult because others often assume she's too good for them and is at a level they simply cannot obtain. This is why she was attracted to Jaune, and she considers him the reason why she was able to make friends.

She is also highly skilled at using her weapon's multiple forms in combat, being able to switch between forms several times in rapid succession to both deliver rapid attacks and counter others simultaneously. Even without her weapons she is skilled, being able to take out several students at the same time with kicks and her bare hands. She is a master of her semblance, being able to apply it in combat almost always undetected, doing so with such skill and precision that she has lead many to believe she is untouchable and invincible.)
Weaknesses: Continual use of her Aura will cause it to decay to the point where she can be left weakened or even incapacitated
- Miló: Pyrrha's signature weapon, a weapon capable of transitioning between a javelin, a xiphos, and a rifle. In javelin form, the rifle barrel becomes part of the body and Pyrrha can use it to fire the javelin, giving it a burst of increased range, speed, and power.
- Akoúo̱: Pyrrha's secondary weapon, a Greek Dipylon-style shield that she carries on her left arm. Akoúo̱ has a razor-sharp edge and can be used as a thrown weapon, like a large discus. Pyrrha is skilled at wielding Akoúo̱ to the point where she can casually judge her throws well enough to ensure that her shield returns to her upon its rebound. The shield is highly durable, able to withstand massive concussive force, break through several trees consecutively, withstand the attack of a Death Stalker's claw, and effectively function as a launch surface to amplify Nora Valkyrie's jump-attack, while also protecting Pyrrha from a contact shot with one of Magnhild's grenades.
- Semblance: Polarity: Pyrrha's Semblance is Polarity, the ability to control magnetism. Pyrrha's semblance is not affected by the number of objects she uses it on, and she has shown the ability to remotely manipulate multiple objects at once, including objects several times larger and heavier than herself, and move them at high speeds. As shown in "Best Day Ever", she does not need to come in contact with a metal object in order to manipulate it, and she can manipulate normally non-magnetic metals, such as aluminum. In most combat situations, Pyrrha does not go out of her way to broadcast her Semblance's abilities. Instead, she uses it only to make very subtle changes of movement for her own weapons and sometimes her opponent's weapon to affect the course of a battle. This gave her the psychological edge of appearing to be invincible in the eyes of most people. However, she has the ability to use her power offensively, as she can use her Semblance to create a magnetic pulse.
- Pyrrhouette: Pyrrha uses her magnetism to orbit her spear around her while spinning, ending with a devastating circular slash.
