Characters: Battle B-Daman
Covers the Battle B-Daman
The Main Characters
Voiced by: Kurumi Mayima (JP)
- All-Encompassing Mantle: What he wears most of the time.
- Alternate Identity Amnesia: He doesn't remember the times of when he's in his alternate personality once he turns back.
- Bumbling Sidekick: Depends on which personality he's in.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Despite his quirkiness and alternate personalities, he turns out to be a skilled mechanic and repairer of B-Daman, eventually even becoming Armada's apprentice.
- Cloud Cuckoolander
- Color-Coded for Your Convenience: His "good" side and "evil" side are black and red, respectively.
- Crazy Awesome: How can a guy with two alternate personalities not be this?
- Demoted to Extra: Despite appearing prominently in the intro, and having a fairly large roll near the beginning of the series. By the time Marda B's good side assembles a group 'chosen' players to square off against his dark half. Bull has been frozen in stone like every other extra on the show. This happens to him gradually in the manga as well, doubly so for his recessive "evil"/berserker" side.
- Face of a Thug: For his red-headed personality.
- Freudian Trio: His personalites are this. With his first (and most prominent) personality being the Cuckoolander, well more so than the other two anyway. Though this is only the case in the anime.
- Good Eyes, Evil Eyes: Depends on which personality is dominant at the time.
- The Brute: His dark-heard, open-eyed personality. Though this is only in the anime.
- Fiery Redhead: You guessed it, his red-headed personality.
- Genius Ditz
- Just a Kid
- The Klutz
- Large Ham: When in his "evil/berserker" mode.
- Many Spirits Inside of One: Has two (three in the anime) split personalities; a calm one, a confident one, and an aggressive one.
- Meaningful Name: The guy who has a Hair-Trigger Temper and frequently Turns Red, is named "Bull."
- Mood-Swinger: His defining characteristic.
- Nice Guy: Most of the time.
- Skeletons in the Coat Closet: Wears a necklace of skulls around his cloak and mantle.
- Skintone Sclerae: When in his default "good/normal" mode.
- The Smart Guy: Becomes this, surprisingly, for Yamato and the group.
- Turns Red: When in his "evil" mode.
- Took a Level in Badass
Grey Michael Vincent
- Ambiguously Brown: Justified. See Mixed Ancestry below.
- Annoying Younger Sibling: Sometimes, to his blood brother, Joe Tetsunosuke.
- Berserk Button: His height. See Napoleon Complex below.
- Blood Brothers: With Joe Tetsunosuke.
- Brave Scot: Well, he is technically Scottish, has a Scottish accent in the anime, and he's certainly brave. However, he can also be considered to be a...
- Fake Scot: To reiterate; in Japan, he was actually named as Tsubame Tsubakura. His Scottish accent is only for the English dub anime; and all evidence in the original manga points to him, in fact, as being Indo-Japanese.
- Fang Thpeak: See Speech Impediment below.
- Friend to All Living Things
- Green Eyes
- McNinja: He is called ''Terry McScotty'' in the English dubbed anime and manga, and yet is a Ninja. Thus, he is probably one of the best and most literal examples of this trope ever created.
- For example, as a Ninja, he is thus able to perform both the Ninja Run and Ninja Log, as shown here.
- To make it even more confusing; he claims to be a "Highlander", but then explicitly states just a few minutes later of how he "came from Japan", as seen here.
- Mixed Ancestry: In the English-translated Chuang Yi manga, the character is still called Terry McScotty; but he grew up in a country called Jipangnote .
- Meaningful Name: Well, his Japanese name at least, means swallow when translated into English; which fits with the bird theme of his B-Daman Wing Eagle, and then later as Wing Sword.
- Misplaced Accent: For the English dubbed anime. See Fake Scot above.
- Ninja/Ninja Brat: He sometimes alternates between the two.
- Napoleon Complex
- Samurai Versus Ninjas: The dynamic between Joe Tetsunosuke and Terry/Tsubame himself.
- The Rival: Starts out this way to Yamato.
- Speech Impediment: He suffers from a lisp, to be precise; though only in the manga.
- Sweet Tooth: He loves Mie Delgado's taiyaki.
- She's a Man in Japan: While Terry is also a boy in the English dub. The voice actor, well, makes him sound a lot like a girl.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair
- The Worf Effect: Suffers from this quite a bit in both the anime and the manga.
- Break the Cutie/Cynicism Catalyst: See Freudian Excuse below.
- Cool Bike: Rides a motorcycle in the manga.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars
- Defrosting Ice King
- Evil Redhead -> Redheaded Hero
- Freudian Excuse: He was betrayed by his childhood companion Cornell; who sabotaged Enjyu in order to get him disqualified in the final, after trying beforehand to guilt trip him into forfeiting their match, as his friend. (In the anime; he claimed that Enjyu had cheated, causing the crowd to turn against him, boo him offstage and thus quit the battle. In the manga; he shot down the locker directly onto Enjyu, thus preventing him from attending and playing against him.) Unsurprisingly, Enjyu then became extremely vengeful and cynical of the game after that, and so was easily manipulated by Ababa into joining the Shadow Alliance.
- Heroes Prefer Motorcycles: Has a motorcycle, which he incidentally only uses post-Heel-Face Turn.
- Heel-Face Turn: Defeat Means Friendship specifically, though it takes a while to really kick in.
- Jerkass -> Jerk with a Heart of Gold
- Not Good with People
- Oblivious to Love: Enjyu is either completely oblivious to Liena's crush, or he's simply not interested.
- Psycho Electro: He has a lightning theme in his first appearance as a villain; on his clothes, as a scar, and with his B-Daman, Lightning Khan.
- Save the Villain: During his match with Yamato, Yamato pushes him out of the way of an oncoming attack form Ababa.
- Sugar and Ice Personality
- The Rival: To Yamato.
- The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: Adopts this attitude after his defeat by Yamato.
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid
