World of Winx
Before ever making her on-screen debut, Virus tampers with the highly sensitive security systems within the hidden depths of Sebastian's Villa, putting the Winx in danger while completely shutting off all cameras directed to the vault to leave Sebastian and Matt in the dark.
After Aisha clears out the paralyzing foam using her power over fluids, Virus belts out a maniacal laugh, clearly signaling to the Winx that they are under attack from a malicious entity. They are then stuck having to brave cryogenic gas leaking in through all the vents leading into the vault and with no way to clear it, they all begin to lose consciousness trying to keep warm; Tecna being the last of them to maintain consciousness.
Once Tecna demands that this entity show itself, Virus dashes out from her hiding place to reveal herself to her heroic counterpart. She then zips around at incredible speeds and seems to find enjoyment in frightening Tecna with her sudden reappearances.
She continues to whiz around Tecna maniacally laughing as the rest of the Winx remain unconscious in the beginning of the next episode, "Technomagic Trap." Once Tecna demands to know her identity, Virus formally introduces herself before dashing off elsewhere, giving Tecna the opportunity needed to disable the cryogenic gas. This does not put a damper into Virus' plans as she simply reappears above the Winx before dashing through them one by one until all of them (aside from Tecna) are under her control. With a smirk and a clap, Virus has the four hypnotized Winx stand by her to signify this before sicking Bloom out to attack her friend.
She then goes back to playfully dashing about the vault as leaves Tecna to fight her friends. While doing so, she explains to Tecna that she hacked into the Winx's "source codes" to put them under her control as a virus like her is expected to do. Tecna tries to trap Virus in another one of her technomagic cages, but Virus breaks out of it with ease by releasing a discharge powerful enough to blow Tecna away. She then watches as Tecna is given the Barrie Sword unfazed as all of Tecna's swings still miss her. Laughing at her attempts, Virus taunts Tecna over being too predictable and goes back to dashing about the vault.
Unfortunately for Virus, she is unable to get another hit on Tecna as Tecna heeds Matt's advice over letting go of all logic, allowing for her moves to become completely unpredictable to her. So, with one swing of the Sword, Virus is cut in half, causing her already chaotic form to explode in a flash of neon green light and bits of code. With Virus destroyed, Bloom, Stella, Musa, Flora and Aisha are freed from her mind control and Sebastian regains control of his villa's security system, allowing for him and Matt to rush down to his secret vault.
- Virus (computer virus) is a program which can covertly transmit itself between computers via networks (especially the Internet) or removable storage such as disks and USB drives, often causing damage to systems and data.
- Virus and Obscura are the only Nemeses who have white skin, as opposed to white facial makeup over their skin. However, in Virus' case, she is a robot, so her white "skin" is more like white metal plating.
- Ironically, Virus has long hair instead of short hair like light counterpart, Tecna.
