Masamune Kadoya

Voiced By: Yuko Sanpei (Japanese), Cameron Ansell (English)
  • Almighty Janitor: Was never in any real tournaments, including the Survival Battle, or Battle Bladers before the World Tournament. He's still quite the blader.
  • Big Eater
  • The Chosen One: 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.
  • Cute Bruiser: A rare male example.
  • Humble Pie: 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.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: For all his boasting and snarkiness, he's a nice guy.
  • The Lancer: To Gingka of Metal Masters.
  • Large Ham: Definitely.
  • Mouthy Kid: Has no trouble making snarky comments at his opponent's expense.
  • Shock and Awe: His preferred type of attack moves.
  • To Be a Master: 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.
  • Unknown Rival: To Ginga at first, as Ginga really has no idea who he is and his presently uncontrollable Super Prototype has him preoccupided at the moment. Most of the episode consists of him getting 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 The Rival status.

Teru Saotome

Voiced By: Nobuhiko Okamoto (Japanese), Scott Gorman (English)
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Effortlessly defeated Hikaru and almost had Ginga cornered. In Battle Bladers, Ryutaro defeated him easily.
  • Face–Heel Turn: 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 Camp Straight for no reason.
  • Meaningful Name: His family name contains "otome", which means "lady". It either refers to his beyblade being a Virgo or himself being a ballerina. Or both.
  • Out of Focus
  • Real Men Wear Pink: He's a former ballerina.

Sora Akatsuki

Voiced by: Machiko Kawana (Japanese), Bill Houston (English)


Voiced By: Takeshi Kusao (Japanese)
  • Dirty Coward
  • Expy: He and his gang are one of the 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
  • Multicolored Hair
  • One-Shot Character: Why did they give Scorpio to THIS guy?
  • Scary Scorpions

    Dark Nebula 


Voiced By: Takehito Koyasu (Japanese), Juan Choiran (Episode 1-32), Andrew Jackson (Episode 33-onwards) (English)
  • Animal Motifs: His beyblade has a wolf motif.
  • Big Bad: Only in the sense that he's the head of the Dark Nebula. Later, Ryuga "dismisses" him.
  • Casting a Shadow
  • Death by Adaptation: 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 Big Bad later on, requiring the anime to create Dr. Ziggurat to replace him.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul
  • Karmic Death: Kept trying to feed people to Ryuga and L-Drago to increase their power. In the end, Ryuga kills him by sucking out all of his.
  • Killed Off for Real: Ryuga sucks out all of his energy after he's beaten by Phoenix.
    • Retcon: He was still dead in Masters; in fact, the Big Bad of that was created because Doji had died (see Death by Adaptation 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 the next season it was revealed that Merci saved him and loaded his mind to a computer.
  • Noodle Incident: Whatever was that caused his hatred of cactuses is never explained properly. Yu doesn't seem to want to know either.
  • Savage Wolf: His bey is "Dark Wolf" after all.
  • Scary Shiny Glasses
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Ryuga killed him because, in his view, he didn't need his help to get more power anymore.


Voiced By: Kenjiro Tsuda (Japanese), Carman Melville (English)
  • Big Bad: In Fusion.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Came to the rescue of Gan Gan Galaxy when Tsubasa and Yu got injured.
    • And again, albeit unintentionally, he rescued Ginga and Masamune from the black hole they were stuck in when he fired his beyblade at Hades City. On the other hand, it almost blew them up.
    • Another one was after losing to Rago, he gave his Star Fragment power to Kenta, enabling him to become a Legendary Blader.
  • The Chosen One: One of the Legendary Bladers; he stands for the season of Summer.
  • Coat Cape
  • Demonic Possession: 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.
  • Devour the Dragon: Had a habit of doing this. Finally turned on Doji and absorbed all of his energy in order to power up L-Drago, killing him in the anime.
  • Dying Moment of Awesome: Ultimate Move: Dragon Emperor Life Destructor, and giving his Star Fragment to Kenta.
  • Eviler Than Thou: Does this to Doji, turning on him and sucking out all of his energy, killing him.
  • Evil Is Not a Toy: There's a very good reason L-Drago was called 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 possesses Ryuga, which normally leads to Body Horror. 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
  • Evil Weapon: L-Drago. Subverted with its evolution; Meteor L-Drago.
  • Hand Blast: One of his favorite moves in Beyblade matches.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather
  • Killed Off for Real: 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.
  • Multicolored Hair
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: When L-Drago possesses him, his eyes glow red.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: L-Drago was sealed away by Gingka's village in ancient times due to being destructive and evil.
  • Shock and Awe and Casting a Shadow: In Fusion.
  • You Have Failed Me/You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Both of which are punishable by becoming a meal for L-Drago.

Yu Tendo

Voiced By: Kaori Nazuka (Japanese), Denise Oliver (English)
  • Badass Adorable
  • Berserk Button: Bullying Kenta or Tithi in his presence will definitely set him off.
    • And for that matter, never, EVER call Yu a little kid.
  • Bratty Half-Pint
  • Cheerful Child
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: 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.
  • Dishing Out Dirt
  • Evil Counterpart: To Kenta. To be fair, he isn't evil, he only joined the Dark Nebula since Ryuga was strong.
  • Friendly Enemy
  • Graceful Loser: At least he tends to be a good sport when he loses.
  • Green Eyes
  • Heel–Face Turn
  • Hypocrite: Gives nicknames to almost all of his friends, but hates being called nicknames himself.
  • Keet
  • The Nicknamer: 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
  • Number Two: Of the Dark Nebula.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse
  • Tag Along Kid: In Masters, replacing Kenta.
  • The Smart Guy: In Masters reducing Madoka to The Medic status.
  • The Worf Effect: 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.
    • Worf Had the Flu: 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.

Da Shan

Voiced By: Wataru Hatano (Japanese), Dan Petronijevic (English)
  • Blue Oni
  • Hot-Blooded Sideburns: They're golden!
  • Multicolored Hair
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Zurafa, despite manifesting as a dragon, has a Face Bolt which depicts a Qilin, which is a unicorn-like creature that occasionaly replaces Baihu as one of the The Four Gods. On the other hand, its corresponding constellation is the "Camelopardalis" a.k.a. the giraffenote .
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He's Beylin Temple's top blader and the leader of Wang Hu Zong, and while he can be quite harsh on his students and teammates, he always means well, has his friends' best intrests at heart, and is quick to praise a job well done.
  • The Unexpected: He wasn't weak, especially not against Ginga, but no one was expecting him to defeat JULIAN of all people.
  • Playing with Fire
  • Pretty in Mink

Julian Konzern

Voiced By: Daisuke Kirii (Japanese), Shawn Meunier
  • Expy: An insanely powerful beyblader from a noble family whose acts of indulging in Family Honor involves conquering the sport and academic world? Sounds a lot like Garland.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Defected to Star Breaker for a while.
  • Family Honor
  • Gravity Is Purple: His beyblade and bey spirit all have purplish color schemes. And he has at least one gravity-based technique.
  • Gravity Master: His second special move can even blast his opponents with it.
  • Italy: Country of origin.
  • Medusa: Also Perseus.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Not him, but his beyblade. It has a few dots which glow red during a particular attack.
  • Shock and Awe: His first special move: Black Excalibur strikes with the power of blackish purple lightning.
  • Stone Wall: His beyblade is known for having the best defense in the world.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Technically he was a rival, but what Damian did to him counts as breakdown.

Tropes fitting the entire team:


  • Dem Bones
  • Hachimaki
  • Meaningful Name: His beyblade is based on the Carina constellation, formerly part of the ancient Argo Navis.
  • The Rival: To Tsubasa.
  • No Sell: Somehow his bey can't affected by air attacks. Tsubasa beat him by aiming for the performance.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: He has skills alright, but if he was nicer and believed in the power of the Bey Spirit, he could've have been one of the strongest bladers on the show.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Smacked his own sister in the face.
