Mythra is one of the main characters from Xenoblade Chronicles 2. She is a Blade, which are personifications of weapons used by Drivers in the world of Alrest, more specifically an Aegis (or Legendary Blade) that can be wielded by the game's main protagonist, Rex. She created Pyra as a different personality of herself. Mythra uses a variety of light-based powers in combat, whereas Pyra uses flame-based powers. Both her and Pyra are set to be released as a singular 2-in-1 downloadable fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
On February 17, 2021, during a Nintendo Direct, both Pyra and Mythra were announced as the fighters for Challenger Pack 9 for the Fighters Pass Vol. 2 in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. They are set to release sometime in March. The reveal trailer begins first with announcing Pyra, and during a battle with Link in which he throws a Remote Bomb at her, Mythra's voice can be heard saying, "Talk about a tight spot! Let me handle this!" Pyra then transforms into Mythra, and continues fighting with Link, successfully reflecting bombs back at him. A follow-up Direct showcasing Pyra and Mythra's moves in-depth, and announcement for their official release date is scheduled for March 4th, 2021.
Mythra and Pyra function as one character, with players having the option to switch back and forth between them, similar to how Zelda and Sheik functioned in Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Mythra's moves include Lightning Buster, a slash attack that can be charged; Photon Edge, an attack that slashes opponents multiple times; Ray of Punishment, where Mythra slashes an opponent upwards and fires a beam of light downwards; Chroma Dust, where Mythra fires multiple downward shots; and Foresight, which acts as a counter similar to Shulk's Vision. Mythra's Final Smash is Sacred Arrow, in which Rex appears and the two rain multiple beams of light on opponents.
Prior to being revealed as fighters, both Mythra and Pyra were Legend-class support spirits. Mythra's spirit battle involves fighting female Corrin, representing Mythra, and Shulk, representing Rex, on the Battlefield form of Gaur Plain. When equipped, Mythra's spirit increases the fighter's chance of landing a random powerful attack.
