[[folder:Main Characters]]
!Ginga/Gingka Hagane
--->Voiced By: Aki Kanada (Japanese), Robert Tinkler (English)
* BigBrotherMentor: To Kenta.
* BigEater
* BlowYouAway: His Tornado Wing, Storm Bringer, and Cosmic Tornado special moves stand out.
* TheChosenOne: One of the Legendary Bladers; he stands for the season of Autumn.
* DeathFromAbove: His special technique.
** Which would be AwesomeButImpractical if this wasn't a cartoon. It is, theoretically, incredibly easy to dodge such an attack, unless your beyblade is stuck, which was what happened to Hyoma.
** Actually, it isn't. The opponent has no idea which direction Pegasis is coming from, hence, the opponent has no idea where to go to dodge the attack.
* TheDrifter: Though he [[IChooseToStay decides to stay]] with Kenta & Madoka.
* FingerlessGloves
* FreeRangeChildren: Sure, it's a kid's show, but social services should have caught Gingka within the first day of his cross-country trek.
* GoodIsNotDumb: He's a good deal smarter than most shonen heroes, including [[Anime/{{Beyblade}} Tyson]].
** He seems to dumb up in ''Masters''.
* {{Hachimaki}}
* TheHero
* HeroicRematch: In Fusion, he lost to only three people, (Ryuga, Yu, and Phoenix) and defeated them awesomely in his rematches with them.
* {{Pegasus}}
* LightisGood: Most of his special moves (Starblast Attack, Starbooster Attack, etc.) having Pegasus raining down with speeding blue light.
* MeaningfulName: Ginga = Galaxy; Hagane = Metal.
* MissingMom: Gingka's mother is never seen, nor mentioned once in the series.
* PrimaryColorChampion
* PointlessBandAid
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to his rivals' red.
* ScarfOfAsskicking
* StockShonenHero: A KidHero with a noticeable case of AnimeHair. He is a [[TheChosenOne Legendary Blader]], likes [[BigEater food]], and has some goals ToBeAMaster. He lacks the normal IdiotHero traits for the most part, though.
* SuperPrototype: His second beyblade, Galaxy Pegasus is the prototype version of Storm Pegasus. Despite this, it is ''extremely'' powerful, but originally uncontrollable, thus why the weaker Storm Pegasus is the final version. It chose Gingka to wield it, though, so he's able to control it.
* ThePowerOfFriendship: Gingka uses this in most of his matches, using the power of his friends and rivals to save Ryuga's bey spirit and defeat the dark power, defeating Damian's Hades Kerbecs with the power of his friends, and using the power of the [[spoiler: Star Fragment]] of his friends, rivals, allies, and old enemies beys to defeat [[spoiler: Rago, Pluto, and Nemesis's FusionDance]]
* ToBeAMaster: Not as much as Hikaru or Masamune, however.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Hamburgers.
* {{Wimpification}}: The yaoi fangirls just ''love'' doing this to him.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have An Unnatural Shade Of Red Hair]]

!Kyoya Tategami
--->Voiced By: Creator/SatoshiHino (Japanese), Peter Cugno (English)

* GoodScarsEvilScars
* HeelFaceTurn
* HeroicBSOD: [[spoiler:Look below.]]
* HypocriticalHeartwarming: He can be a jerk to those around him at times, but he will NOT tolerate anyone else doing it. A perfect example of this is when he calls out Rago for badmouthing Ryuga after the latter's gruesome defeat.
* IcyBlueEyes
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler: During his battle with Ryuga, the semi-physical manifestation of L-Drago pierced his chest. It's as weird as it sounds.]]
* JacobMarleyWarning: Busujima is what he would have become had he not disbanded the Face Hunters.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* TheLancer
* LargeHam: His seiyuu was having just a ''bit'' too much fun during Kyoya's first episodes.
* LonersAreFreaks: He even admits it himself!
** MisunderstoodLonerWithAHeartOfGold: He's actual a pretty decent guy, as long as you don't piss him off or if you're Ginga. Even in the manga he's a whole lot nicer than his anime counterpart.
* LongHairedPrettyBoy: And boy do the fangirls love it.
* MrFanservice
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: You won't believe the trouble he goes through just to have a rematch with Ginga.

* SleevesAreForWimps: In ''Fury''.
* SneezeCut: Done [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4mh-DKWHdw here]] (at 7:30), he even [[LampshadeHanging references it]] with his line "Alright okay, who's talking about me?"
* TallDarkAndSnarky
* TookALevelInJerkass: Sure, he's always been a jerk, but in ''Fury'' he goes through a period of being just plain nasty.
* TsurimeEyes
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Green Hair]]
* YouCantFightFate: Realizes this after meeting up with Yu and Tithi, declaring that he has to be surrounded by others.

* SneezeCut: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4mh-DKWHdw Follows]] suit with Kyoya (3 seconds later at 7:33).
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Purple Hair]]

!Kenta Yumiya
--->Voiced By: Creator/EmiriKatou (Japanese), Lisette St. Louis (English)
* BadassBoast: Gives one to Busujima's gang, saying he could beat all of them by himself. He probably could've too, if they weren't a pack of cheaters.
* CantCatchUp: He has a big issue with this in ''Fury'', fearing that he may be holding his friends back. [[spoiler:He does catch up in the end, and ''how''.]]
* CheerfulChild
* [[spoiler:TheChosenOne: Ryuga passes his title as Legendary Blader of Summer on to him.]]
* OddFriendship: With Benkei and, as of lately, with Ryuga.

* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Green Hair]]

!Madoka Amano
--->Voiced By: Kei Shindou (Japanese), Barbara Mamabolo (English)
* BrainyBrunette
* TheChick
* ExpressiveHair: She has two locks of hair that distinctly stick out. They move up if she's surprised, or down if she's sad.
* GogglesDoSomethingUnusual
* InnocentBlueEyes
* TheMedic: Well, as close as you can get in the series; she's basically a toy handyman, but that is of course very important to the world of Beyblading.
* MsExposition
* NamesTheSame: Sure, she's TheChick, but nowhere to the level of another [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Madoka]] you might be thinking about.
* NightmareFace: Madoka can be pretty scary when she's angry.
* PowerStrainBlackout: She's prone to doing this when she actually uses her Beyblade. How that's possible is never really answered.
* TheSmartGirl
* TaremeEyes
* {{Tsundere}}: She's Type B. She's normally kind and friendly, but you do NOT want to make lose her temper.
* WrenchWench: In a nutshell, she's [[Franchise/SailorMoon Ami Mizuno]] [[XMeetsY meets]] [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Winry Rockbell]]. If their jobs were to make sure mechanical tops were kept in mint condition.

!Masamune Kadoya
--->Voiced By: Creator/YukoSanpei (Japanese), Cameron Ansell (English)
* AlmightyJanitor: Was never in any real tournaments, including the Survival Battle, or Battle Bladers before the World Tournament. He's still quite the blader.
* BigEater
* TheChosenOne: Subverted; everybody expected him to be the Legendary Blader of Winter, but it turned out to be Chris.
* {{Determinator}}: After spending an entire episode losing miserably to Ginga, but ''kept coming back until he won'' and training as hard as he could.
* CuteBruiser: A rare male example.
* HumblePie: Gets a large slice of it after his ego crushing defeat at the hands of Nile. Fortunately, It leads to some good character development for him.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: For all his boasting and snarkiness, he's a nice guy.
* TheLancer: To Gingka of Metal Masters.
* LargeHam: Definitely.
* MouthyKid: Has no trouble making snarky comments at his opponent's expense.
* ShockAndAwe: His preferred type of attack moves.
* ToBeAMaster: How many times has he exclaimed that he's going to beat Ginga/ whatever opponent he has, or that he/Gan Gan is/are number one? Exactly.
* {{Unicorn}}: His bey.
* UnknownRival: To Ginga at first, as Ginga really has no idea who he is and his presently uncontrollable SuperPrototype has him preoccupided at the moment. Most of the episode consists of him getting [[CurbstompBattle curbstompped by Galaxy Pegasus]]. It's only towards the end when Gingka reconizes something in him and he manages to beat Galaxy Pegasus that he manages to earn proper TheRival status.

!Yuki Mizusawa
--->Voiced By: Mayuki Makiguchi (Japanese), Taylor Abrahamse (English)

* Myth/EgyptianMythology: Wields Anubis.
** DarkIsNotEvil

!Hikaru Hazama
--->Voiced By: Creator/MarinaInoue (Japanese), Katie Griffin (English)
* AmbiguouslyBrown
* {{Bifauxnen}}
* DefrostingIceQueen: A non-romantic example. She starts off as cold and reserved, but warms up and becomes much friendlier after her battle with Gingka.
* FauxActionGirl

* PurpleEyes
* ShonenHair: Rare female example.
* ToBeAMaster

* ChildhoodFriend: to Gingka, along with Hyoma.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Totally absent from ''Fury''.
* DemotedToExtra: Has a bigger role in the manga. He even has his own Beyblade!

* {{Hachimaki}}
* MeaningfulName: It means "North Star".
* MentorMascot
* TalkingAnimal

--->Voiced By: Creator/TetsuyaKakihara (Japanese), Lyon Smith (English)
* AnIcePerson: The DS games for some reason have his special move to be Blizzard Hold, a move that encases the opposing beyblade in ice before Aries rams into it, even though in the show itself, Aries never shows any Ice-based special moves. [[JustForPun His name may have to do with it though.]]
* ChildhoodFriend: to Gingka.
* DemotedToExtra: In ''Masters''.
* HeroicBSOD: For a short while, after losing to Reiji.
* JapanesePoliteness
* MeaningfulName: He points out himself that his name has kanji for "iceberg" and "demon". The former refers to his politeness and the latter to his {{Trickster}} tendencies.

* NiceGuy
* ReverseMole: He pretended to side with Dark Nebula to gather information about L-Drago on behalf of the WBBA.
* SixthRanger: Of Ginga's gang in ''Fusion''.
* SuperPoweredEvilSide: Develops this in ''Masters'', due to being [[TheVirus contaminated with Ryuga's dark power]]. He eventually overcomes it.

!Ryusei/Ryo Hagane
--->Voiced By: Creator/ShowHayami (Japanese)
* BumblingDad: Very much in ''Masters''.
* BadassLongcoat: In his Phoenix getup.
* CharClone: As Phoenix.
* CodeName: Phoenix in ''Fusion''.

* TheChosenOne: One of the Legendary Bladers; he stands for the planet Venus.
* CowardlyLion
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Has pink hair, a fragile personality and is very touchy-feely with Yu. Not to mention the whole deal with his Beyblade standing for [[MarsAndVenusGenderContrast Venus]].
* FacialMarkings
* FragileFlower
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: And to achieve this goal, [[NoSocialSkills he'd jump people out of nowhere and challenge them to a battle, while wearing that monstrous mask]]. Clearly it did not do wonders to his popularity.
* InnocentBlueEyes
* InvincibleHero: Out of all the legendary bladers, he's never lost a fight [[spoiler: outside of Rago]]
* {{Keet}}: Flip-flops between this and ShrinkingViolet.
* [[MalevolentMaskedMen Malevolent Masked Boy]]: So very subverted. People were scared of him and thought he was a monster, even hiring Bladers to hunt him down. He's just a meek little boy.
* PintSizedPowerHouse
* ShonenHair
* ShrinkingViolet



!Teru Saotome
--->Voiced By: Creator/NobuhikoOkamoto (Japanese), Scott Gorman (English)
* CurbStompBattle: Effortlessly defeated Hikaru and almost had Ginga cornered. In Battle Bladers, Ryutaro defeated him easily.
* FaceHeelTurn: Averted. Unlike most of the new bladers in Battle Bladers, he remained a good guy on Gingka's side, as shown in Fusion's last opening words.
* {{Flanderization}}: At his introduction, he was sensible, but low-key. In the movie, he's become CampStraight for no reason.
* MeaningfulName: His family name contains "otome", which means "lady". It either refers to his beyblade being a Virgo or himself being a ballerina. Or both.
* OutOfFocus
* RealMenWearPink: He's a former ballerina.

!Sora Akatsuki

--->Voiced By: Creator/TakeshiKusao (Japanese)
* DirtyCoward
* {{Expy}}: He and his gang are one of the [[http://beyblade.wikia.com/wiki/Face_Hunters Face Hunters]] from the beginning of the season. As his group (as a whole) like to bully weaker Beybladers (like the face hunters), bully Kenta (like the face hunters) and his name starts with the letter B (the face hunters had a member, whose name began with the letter B).
* {{Gonk}}
* MultiColoredHair
* OneShotCharacter: Why did they give Scorpio to THIS guy?
* ScaryScorpions

--->Voiced By: Creator/HikaruMidorikawa (Japanese), Dan Petronijevic (English)

--->Voiced By: Creator/TatsuhisaSuzuki (Japanese), Carman Menville (English)
* TheChosenOne: One of the Legendary Bladers; he stands for the season of Winter.
* EtTuBrute: Being left by his friends, who [[CantCatchUp couldn't catch up]] to him, made him really cynical.
* HeelFaceTurn: Was with the Nemesis Bladers at first, turns to Ginga's side not too soon after.
* HiredGuns: Claims to be a blader for hire, whatever that means.
* NightmareFace: How his Beyblade Orion manifests.
* ShonenHair

* CrucifiedHeroShot: When he attacks.
* {{Expy}}: Is that... is that [[Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows Keima Katsuragi]]?
* FourEyesZeroSoul
* ThePowerOfTheSun: His special move, Burst Satellite.
** NukeEm: It was able to engulf the entire Sphere 360/Destroyer Dome, and only '''THREE PEOPLE''' managed to survive it.


[[folder:Dark Nebula]]

--->Voiced By: Creator/TakehitoKoyasu (Japanese), Juan Choiran (Episode 1-32), Andrew Jackson (Episode 33-onwards) (English)
* AnimalMotifs: His beyblade has a wolf motif.
* BigBad: Only in the sense that he's the head of the Dark Nebula. [[spoiler: Later, Ryuga "dismisses" him.]]
* CastingAShadow
* DeathByAdaptation: Is killed by Ryuga in the anime, but lived through it in the manga. This caused problems when the manga had him come back as a BigBad later on, requiring the anime to create Dr. Ziggurat to replace him.
* FourEyesZeroSoul
* [[spoiler:KarmicDeath: Kept trying to feed people to Ryuga and L-Drago to increase their power. In the end, [[EvilerThanThou Ryuga kills him by sucking out]] ''[[DevourTheDragon all]]'' [[DevourTheDragon of his.]]]]
* KilledOffForReal: Ryuga sucks out ''all'' of his energy after he's beaten by Phoenix.
** [[spoiler:RetCon: He was still dead in ''Masters''; in fact, the BigBad of that was created because Doji had died (see DeathByAdaptation above). But they brought him back in ''Fury'' with literally no explanation, and he wholeheartedly supports the Nemesis Bladers in destroying the world. Ryuga accidentally killed him again at Fury after his ultimate move made Doji fall to his death. However in [[Anime/BeybladeZeroG the next season]] it was revealed that Merci saved him and loaded his mind to a computer.]]
* NoodleIncident: Whatever was that caused his hatred of cactuses is never explained properly. Yu doesn't seem to want to know either.
* SavageWolf: His bey is "Dark Wolf" after all.
* ScaryShinyGlasses
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Ryuga killed him because, in his view, he didn't need his help to get more power anymore.

--->Voiced By: Creator/KenjiroTsuda (Japanese), Carman Melville (English)
* BigBad: In ''Fusion''.
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler:Came to the rescue of Gan Gan Galaxy when Tsubasa and Yu got injured.]]
** And again, [[spoiler:albeit unintentionally, he rescued Ginga and Masamune from the black hole they were stuck in when he fired his beyblade at Hades City. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero On the other hand]], it almost blew them up.]]
** Another one was after [[spoiler: losing to Rago, he gave his Star Fragment power to Kenta, enabling him to become a Legendary Blader.]]
* TheChosenOne: One of the Legendary Bladers; he stands for the season of Summer.
* CoatCape
* [[spoiler:DemonicPossession]]: [[spoiler:His cruelty and evil is a result of L-Drago's power over him. L-Drago can completely possess him as well. He eventually manages to purge L-Drago of the darkness and free himself.]]
* DevourTheDragon: Had a habit of doing this. [[spoiler:Finally turned on Doji and absorbed all of his energy in order to power up L-Drago, killing him in the anime.]]
* [[spoiler: DyingMomentOfAwesome]]: '''Ultimate Move: Dragon Emperor Life Destructor''', and giving his Star Fragment to Kenta.
* [[spoiler:EvilerThanThou: Does this to Doji, turning on him and sucking out all of his energy, killing him.]]
* [[spoiler:EvilIsNotAToy: There's a ''very'' good reason L-Drago was called [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast the "Forbidden Bey"]]. Ryuga wasn't aware of the fact that L-Drago was really the one using him, and on a few occasions, L-Drago [[DemonicPossession possesses Ryuga]], which normally leads to BodyHorror. In 'Metal Masters' he's managed to overcome the darkness in L-Drago through heavy training (involving lava), causing it to evolve into Meteor L-Drago]]
* EvilWeapon: L-Drago. [[spoiler:Subverted with its evolution; Meteor L-Drago.]]
* HandBlast: One of his favorite moves in Anime/{{Beyblade}} matches.
* HellBentForLeather
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: His battle with Rago nearly did him in, and giving his power to Kenta sealed his fate.]] Though it is unsure, since he was last seen looking at his "friends" from above.
* MultiColoredHair
* [[spoiler:RedEyesTakeWarning: When L-Drago possesses him, his eyes glow red.]]
* SealedEvilInACan: L-Drago was sealed away by Gingka's village in ancient times due to being destructive and evil.
* ShockAndAwe and CastingAShadow: In ''Fusion''.
** StarPower: In ''Masters''. Specifically, meteors.
** PlayingWithFire: In ''Fury''.
* YouHaveFailedMe[=/=]YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Both of which are punishable by becoming a meal for L-Drago.

!Yu Tendo
--->Voiced By: Creator/KaoriNazuka (Japanese), Denise Oliver (English)
* BadassAdorable
* BerserkButton: Bullying Kenta or Tithi in his presence will definitely set him off.
** And for that matter, never, EVER call Yu a little kid.
* BrattyHalfPint
* CheerfulChild
* CurbStompBattle: He defeated Kenta, Hikaru, and Benkei, Hyoma, Kyoya, and Ginga effortlessly, (though Ginga defeated him in a rematch). He did tie with Tsubasa, and during Masters, he was on the receiving end of this trope.
* DishingOutDirt
* EvilCounterpart: To Kenta. To be fair, he isn't evil, he only joined the Dark Nebula since Ryuga was strong.
* FriendlyEnemy
* GracefulLoser: At least he tends to be a good sport when he loses.
* GreenEyes
* HeelFaceTurn
* {{Hypocrite}}: Gives nicknames to almost all of his friends, but hates being called nicknames himself.
* {{Keet}}
* TheNicknamer: The only friends he doesn't nickname are Madoka, Tsubasa, Ryuga, and Tithi.
** Gingka--> Gingky
** Kenta--> Kenchi
** Kyoya--> Yo-Yo
** Benkei--> Ben-Ben
** Masamune--> Masamoo-moo and Mr. Buttinski
** Hikaru--> Hippity-Hop
* NumberTwo: Of the Dark Nebula.
* PintSizedPowerhouse
* TagAlongKid: In ''Masters'', replacing Kenta.
* TheSmartGuy: In ''Masters'' reducing Madoka to TheMedic status.
* TheWorfEffect: Not as bad as most characters. In Fusion: He lost against only Ryuga, Reiji, and Gingka. In Masters, he lost against Masamune twice and Tsubasa. Afterwards, he defeated Aleksei, but was the first one taken out of the 3-on-3 match between him, Ginga, and Masamune vs Julian, Sophie, and Wales. His only wins in the World Championships were Aleksei and the tag team match against Wild Fang & Excalibur with more effort on Tsubasa. He did end up getting better by the end of Masters defeating Argo and most of Fury, including helping Masamune and King defeat two of the Nemesis Bladers.
** WorfHadTheFlu: In his battles with Enzo and Damian, his bey was nearly broken in the former, and in the latter, his bey was barely repaired enough to race.

!Reiji Mizuchi

* AxCrazy
* {{Bishonen}}
* BlindingBangs
* HellBentForLeather
* [[spoiler:HoistByHisOwnPetard: See below.]]
* {{Medusa}}
* MultiColoredHair
* TakenForGranite: Apparently part of his power. [[spoiler: He also turns to stone when he loses to Ginga.]]
* [[spoiler:VillainousBreakdown]]:
** [[spoiler:During his fight with Kenta, Kenta manages to turn the tide on him. Reiji goes ''berserk'' and even keeps attacking Kenta's bey ''after'' it's already stopped spinning in a mad rage.]]
** [[spoiler:When Ginga delivers a ShutUpHannibal to him in their match and proves he isn't afraid of him, Reiji finds the tables turned and loses it completely, but in a different way than his previous breakdown. Instead of going berserk, he is ultimately becoming overwelmed by his own fear to the point his TakenForGranite power is turned on him.]]

!Tetsuya Watarigani
--->Voiced By: Kenichi Fujiwara (Japanese), Scott McCord (English)
* AdaptationalBadass: In the ''Masters'' DS game. When faced with what is basically a Dino version of [[TheDreaded ''Ryuga'']], his response to being faced with said character is "I have the power to break you.". Even Ginga is impressed afterwards.
* BadassCape: He wouldn't exactly qualify as badass material, but that cape with a Crab cut in the back is undeniably awesome.
* ButtMonkey
* DemotedToExtra: In ''Masters''.
* DirtyCoward
* EtTuBrute
* FaceHeelTurn: Joined the Dark Nebula. Although it ended badly for him.
* FreudianExcuse: Being betrayed by a friend.

!Tobio Oike
--->Voiced By: Creator/AkiraIshida (Japanese), Matthew Hawkins (English)

** TheBusCameBack: He returned in Fury for the Sphere 360 and made cameos during the final battle.

* FriendlySniper
* FunnyAfro
** He could also be considered an AfroAsskicker, because he's pretty badass, despite the fact that he doesn't often win.
* ImprobableAimingSkills
* TheWorfEffect: Lost to Kyoya, then Gingka, then Benkei.

!Ryutaro Fukami
--->Voiced By: Hiro Yuki (Japanese) Shawn Meunier (English)

** TheBusCameBack: Returned in the finale as a few cameos.
* DudeLooksLikeALady
* FaceHeelTurn: Turns good again at the end.
* FacialMarkings
* {{Foreshadowing}}: He predicted that the world would end by the power of a dark beyblade (his vision had Ryuga"s L-Drago), but after Ginga defeated him, he realized that Pegasus and Ginga would be the ones to spread a new light. Even though he meant Ryuga's dark power, it also foreshadows [[spoiler: Ginga defeating Nemesis]].
* GracefulLoser: His final battle with Ginga.
* LargeHam
* PlayingWithFire: His Blazing Inferno makes the opponent feel as if there on fire.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

!Dan and Reiki
* AnIcePerson: Offensive.
* MidSeasonUpgrade: Doji upgraded their Light Wheel Gemios beys into Evil Gemios.

* PlayingWithFire: Defensive.
* TagTeamTwins
* ThoseTwoGuys

!Kuma Brothers
--->Voiced By: Creator/WataruTakagi (All of them, Japanese)
* BearsAreBadNews
* TheBrute
* EvilCounterpart: Just like Yu serves as one for Kenta, this trio serves as one for Benkei. [[http://images.wikia.com/beyblade/images/c/cf/Kumasuke.jpg Kumasuke even passes as a lookalike for Benkei]]. The DS game has Benkei [[LampshadeHanging lampshading]] this.
* TerribleTrio
* TheWorfEffect: They haven't won a single battle.


[[folder: Wang Hu Shong]]

!Chao Xin
--->Voiced By: Creator/HirokiTakahashi (Japanese), Drew Nelson (English)

* RedOniBlueOni: The red to his team's blue

!Da Shan
