Pale Bayleaf (ペール・ベイリーフ Pēru Beirīfu?) is a character that appears in the anime series Sonic X. He is one of the four Metarex Commanders that serve as Generals of the Metarex army under the leadership of Dark Oak.
Pale Bayleaf is a thin and insectoid shaped Metarex, with triangular shaped shoulders, head and horns. He has three black eyes and black stripes over his green tinted armor, with some whiter sections and pointy feet. He wears two turquiose capes attached to each shoulder.
After the Chaos Emeralds were scattered by a gravity field, Pale Bayleaf was the first to recover one. Later, Pale Bayleaf made a deal with the people living on the planet of Cascade (namely Leon and most of Cascade's resistance), promising to spare them if they hand over Doctor Eggman. Pale Bayleaf has driven Molly out of Cascade who seemingly disappeared (or killed Molly in the Japanese version). However, his fleet was decimated by Shadow the Hedgehog. Despite this, Bayleaf continued to survive and later formed an alliance with Eggman to launch a massive attack on Sonic and co. Due to a ruse by Eggman, he temporarily thought that he had destroyed the Blue Typhoon. He later imprisoned Dr. Eggman, Decoe and Bocoe for stealing secret information.
Following this, Pale Bayleaf teamed up with Black Narcissus to attack the Blue Typhoon during the final battle. He later fused with Black Narcissus and Dark Oak to become a three-headed plant dragon monster named Final Mova. However, he was killed by the Blue Typhoon crew allied with Eggman.
Of all the Metarex commanders, Pale Bayleaf is the most tactical and resourceful, seeking intelligent methods to his problems. He is also quite fearless, not intimidated by Sonic and company. He is the most level headed of his allies, often mediating when they fight. He is also shown to be rather cruel, betraying Leon even after making a deal with them, and hardly caring when fellow Commander Zelkova dies.
