Villain Overview

Whenever he wears the amulet of Merlin, I shall destroy him, just as I have done with any single one of them!
~ Bular.
Bular: Yield, Kanjigar.
Kanjigar: A Trollhunter never yields. I'd rather die.
Bular: Terms, accepted.
Kanjigar: Your turn, Bular. Yield.
Bular: There is nowhere left for you to run, Trollhunter. Give me the amulet. [Get the better of Kanjigar] It all ends here. It's me or the sun. Either way, you're doomed.
Kanjigar: No. The amulet will find a champion. We will stop you, and your master. I may end, but the fight will not.

I'll drink your blood out of a goblet made of your skull! I'll carve you open, let your guts spill out!

Personality

Lancelot: Bular the Butcher!
Galahad: The Gumm-Gumm prince himself!
~ Lancelot and Galahad about Bular.

Bular is monstrously arrogant, impulsive, bloodthirsty, vicious, and cruel to friend and foe alike. He is quick to anger and quick to act and enjoys lording himself over his subordinates. Like many trolls, Bular is dismissive of changelings, seeing them as fodder or cheap labor to further his plans while qualifying them as "Impure". Bular is devoted to his father Gunmar and will stop at nothing to bring him back to the surface world.

In Wizards, Bular is the same monster even 900 years earlier but without the compulsion to free his father, he shows great pleasure in slaughtering his enemies, while displaying great contempt for King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. He also appears to respect Morgana for setting him free, ignoring the Changeling she sent.

Appearance 

He very large and muscular built body dark blue with a rocky appearance like all other trolls. It has four horns merged into two, the lower part looks like invert twisted ram horns and the upper part looks like shorter buffalo horns. Bular's back possesses a spiky mane. The rest of his troll physiology features sharp claws and fangs, orange-yellow eyes, and spikes sticking out of his elbows.

He wears a skull belt, leather wrap on his right arm and a scabbard in the back from which he carries his blades.

Plot

Trollhunters

Part 1

Bular faces the Trollhunter, Kanjigar, in the world of humans. After a long battle ending under a bridge, Bular gained the upper hand over him, Kanjigar confesses to being defeated but refuses to give Trollhunter's amulet to Bular. Kanjigar chooses to commit suicide through the solar rays that are deadly for the trolls and is then changed into stone and destroyed when he reaches the ground. The sun's rays preventing him from recovering the amulet, Bular leaves the bridge.

Later a young human boy named Jim Lake finds the amulet and becomes the new Trollhunter, When Bular learns it he waits for the night to attack the young man who runs away with his best friend Toby Domzalski. Bular and Jim end up fighting after Jim is discovered the power of the amulet but he is no match against the despicable Troll and to flee to the world of trolls or Bular could not enter.

The main objective of Bular was always to release his father, with the help of changelings, creatures can transform into a human he was able to rebuild the portal but it needed the amulet to make it walk. He sent Stricklander, a changeling who pretended to be a human named Waltolemew Strickler (whom he replaced) and became Jim's history teacher, to take the amulet better and another changeling named Nomura to collect more bridge parts.. In the end, the portal would finally be opened but it needed the Trollhunter so that the portal opens correctly. When Blinky a good troll searched the portal he was captured by Bular as a bargaining chip. After Jim gave himself up to save his friend, the portal prepared to breathe until the intervention of Jim's friends. Bular entered into a fight with Draal, the son of Kanjigar who wanted to avenge his father. Bular wins the fight and then confronts Aaarrrggghhh the former Gumm-Gumms general of his father giving Jim enough time to retrieve the amulet and destroy the portal.

Bular enraged chased Jim to the bridge where he had killed Kanjigar. After a violent fight and despite many swords, Bular managed to catch Jim and hold him at his mercy. Jim reminded him that without him he could not bring his father back, Bular replied that there would be another Trollhunters and kept taunting him on the fact that he was a weak meat bag and try to grind it almost killed him. Jim managed to break free and drill Bullar into his blank hurting him mortally and he fell into the sun's rays, petrified he fell into the water and sank. But as Jim and his friends celebrate their victory, Bular turned out to be still alive and began to petrify slowly but he still had time to kill Toby, yet Aaarrrggghhh grabbed his hand and hit him hard enough to break him, mesmerizing really end the life of Bular and thus avenging Kanjigar.

From the depths of the Darklands, Gunmar felt the death of his son and swore revenge.

With the loss of Bular, Strickler went to revive an old enemy of the Trollshunters, Angor Rot, for helping him accomplish what Gunmar’s son failed to do. A Bular hallucination produced by Angor comes terrified Strickler in an attempt to free himself from Changeling's submission but Strickler is able to see through the ruse.

Part 2

Tell me, Trollhunter, what should a father do to the one who MURDERED his only son?!
~ Gunmar confronting Jim for killing Bular.

Due to his death, Bular does not actually appear or is just mentioned.

When Gunmar had a Jim captured in front of him, the king of the Gumm-Gumms tried to kill him while mentioning the fate he should inflict on the one who murdered his son.

Bular appeared in a timeline where Jim never had the amulet. He blocks Jim and Stricklander's way in a car before he is joined by his father and the two hunt the changeling.

Wizards

Despite his death, Bular reappears centuries before Trollhunters in the 12th century, long before his death. He makes his first appearance with Gunmar after they are encountered by King Arthur and his troops, but not before Gunmar warns King Arthur about an upcoming war. However, Bular is eventually captured by King Arthur, who has him chained and taken to the kingdom of Camelot, and Gunmar's messenger even tells him that Bular was missing after Arthur crossed Killahead Bridge.

At Camelot, Bular watches as two children roleplay as King Arthur and his sister, Morgana, even though Arthur gets the two children to stop. However, Bular is eventually freed from his chains by a Changeling who is a devout follower of Morgana, and runs free from Camelot even though the Changeling is later killed by Merlin and Douxie in a fiery explosion. He eventually encounters Gunmar striking an alliance with Morgana, telling him that Morgana freed him from his chains, referring to the Changeling freeing him, who served her. Morgana then declares that they will have victory in the Eternal Night.

Eventually, Bular fights alongside Gunmar at the Battle of Killahead Bridge, and also kills Sir Lancelot by slashing his face brutally, with Steve Palchuk watching in horror. As he comes close to Steve, the latter runs away, so Bular calls him out for being a coward. When Steve returns to face Bular, he summons Nimue, the Lady of the Lake, to fight him instead. Nimue tells Bular that he is not worthy, and tosses him far away from the battle.

Quotes

Trollhunters

Bular: For centuries, Father, we have awaited your glorious return. Tonight, we take back the surface lands. Tonight, we feast!
Gunmar: Finally after centuries of being in the Darklands...
Bular: Something is wrong!
Strickler: Take out the amulet! Take it out now.
Gunmar: The portal is closing! My son...
Bular: Father!
Gunmar: My son, what have you done?
~ Bular communicates briefly with his father Gunmar, after centuries.
Draal: I am Draal the Deadly, son of Kanjigar, and you will suffer for my father's death!
Bular: Like father, Like son.
~ Bular confronts and defeats Draal.
If my father were to see you now! You were a killer! His general! You're not a pacifist. You are a pet!
~ Bular facing AAARRGGHHH!!! while calling him a disgrace to the Gumm-Gumms.
Yet another Trollhunter killed under the same bridge.
~ Bular confronting Jim on the same bridge where Kanjigar perished.
Bular: Shame. I'd hoped your death would be more entertaining than Kanjigar's. The amulet should never have chosen a human. You're too soft. Easy to kill. [Jim's friends arrives] Just in time to see their Trollhunter slain.
Jim: But I'm not a troll. [Jim stabs him] Now, that's daylight for you!
~ Bular's last words before being fatally injured by Jim and later destroyed by AAARRRGGGHHH!!!.

Wizard

Bular: Finish it, then, fleshbag!
King Arthur: The spawn of Gunmar. I won't dull Excalibur's edge with you. Drag this monster back to Camelot! I have plans for him.
~ Bular is captured by King Arthur.
Gunmar: Fight by my side, my son. We'll carve a path to the bridge!
Bular: They will suffer!
~ Gunmar and Bular to the Killahead battle.
Steve: Hey, elephant neck!
Bular: Back for more? You fight like a lady.
Steve: Oh, I don't, but I have a friend who does.
Nimue: You are not worthy!
~ Bular before he was kicked out of battle by Nimue, sparing him from being sealed off in the Darklands with his father.

Trivia

  • Bular is expressed in French by actor Thierry Murzeau.
  • Although Bular is given a scar under his left eye in "Young Atlas", in Wizards which takes place hundreds of years before this event, Bular is shown with the same scar.
  • Also in Wizards, Bular's right horn is shown complete while it is broken in Trollhunters.
  • In many ways, Bular can be considered a dark foil of Draal; both are arrogant, dismissive of those that they consider weaker than themselves, and rash. They both also wish to live up to their fathers' expectations of them. However, unlike Draal, Bular never learns humility and the value of true friendship, which leads to him dying alone against the might of Jim and his friends.
