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.

    Others 

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.
  • Deflector Shields: The immense air flow generated by Virgo serves as a barrier to would-be attackers.
  • 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)

Busujima

Voiced By: Takeshi Kusao (Japanese)
  • Combat Pragmatist: Infamous for using any means neccesary to win. He even filled the arena with oil during his battle with Sora, fully knowing that his Bey is unaffected by it while Cyber Pegasus isn't. And when the arena inevitable catches fire, he tries to incinerate Sora's Bey once he sees the fight going south.
  • 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

Dynamis

Voiced By: Hikaru Midorikawa (Japanese), Dan Petronijevic (English)

Chris

Voiced By: Tatsuhisa Suzuki (Japanese), Carman Menville (English)
  • The Chosen One: One of the Legendary Bladers; he stands for the season of Winter.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: Being left by his friends, who couldn't catch up to him, made him really cynical.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Was with the Nemesis Bladers at first, turns to Ginga's side not too soon after.
  • Hired Guns: Claims to be a blader for hire, whatever that means.
  • NighInvulnerable: What his Bey is depicted as in the show. Thanks to its Bearing Drive, it can shrug off countless attacks without taking any damage whatsoever due to the drive essentially reducing all friction from attacks to near-zero. It's still vulnerable to certain attacks like being struck in midair or knocked out of the stadium.
  • Nightmare Face: How his Beyblade Orion manifests.
  • Shonen Hair

Jigsaw

  • Crucified Hero Shot: When he attacks.
  • Expy: Is that... is that Keima Katsuragi?
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul
  • Invisibility / Intangible Man: His Bey Eonis's air control ability allows it to create a field of air around it that refracts light, rendering him invisible. The same field of air can be used to cause attackers to slide around it a la Pisces. Unfortunately for him, the air cushion can be easily ripped to shreds by sonic attacks.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Takes advantage of Eonis' invisibility to make his opponents attack each other by stealthily bumping them, stirring up conflict and increasing his chances at victory.
  • The Power of the Sun: His special move, Burst Satellite, which generates an immense blast of flame to incinerate everything.
    • Nuke 'em: It was able to engulf the entire Sphere 360/Destroyer Dome, and only THREE PEOPLE managed to survive it.

    Dark Nebula 

Daidoji/Doji

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.

Ryuga

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, defeating Jack in the process.
    • 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.
  • Vibroweapon: His Bey's specialty is creating vibrations that can be used for various things like turning the arena into quicksand, firing sonic blades, and most dangerous of all, fire his signature Inferno Blast in case he really wants to win.
  • 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.

Reiji Mizuchi

Voiced By: Akeno Watanabe (Japanese), Brian Froud (English)
  • Ax-Crazy
  • Bishōnen
  • Blinding Bangs
  • Death By A Thousand Cuts: His specialty. Poison Serpent deals so little damage per hit that his enemies don't notice until they realize that it has literally chipped away at their Bey to the point of which Serpent can easily finish it.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: See below.
  • Medusa
  • Multicolored Hair
  • Taken for Granite: Apparently part of his power. He also turns to stone when he loses to Ginga.
  • Villainous Breakdown:
    • 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.
    • When Ginga delivers a Shut Up, Hannibal! 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 Taken for Granite power is turned on him.

Tetsuya Watarigani

Voiced By: Kenichi Fujiwara (Japanese), Scott Mc Cord (English)

Tobio Oike

Voiced By: Akira Ishida (Japanese), Matthew Hawkins (English)

Ryutaro Fukami

Voiced By: Hiro Yuki (Japanese) Shawn Meunier (English)
  • Blow You Away: His powers allow him to manipulate the air currents. This can cause Pisces to do a number of astonishing things such as phase through enemies, levitate, and even throw enemies around.
    • Mind Rape: The air currents can affect the person's senses such as making them experience a rise or decrease in temperature. The sound of Pisces manipulating the air also causes physical pain.
  • Demoted to Extra: In Masters.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady
  • Face–Heel Turn: Turns good again at the end.
  • Facial Markings
  • 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 Ginga defeating Nemesis.
  • Graceful Loser: His final battle with Ginga.
  • Large Ham
  • Playing with Fire: His Blazing Inferno makes the opponent feel as if there on fire.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair

Dan and Reiki

Kuma Brothers

Voiced By: Wataru Takagi (All of them, Japanese)

     Wang Hu Shong 

Chao Xin

Voiced By: Hiroki Takahashi (Japanese), Drew Nelson (English)

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

Chi-Yun Li

Voiced By: Mitsuki Saiga (Japanese), Susan Roman (English)

Mei-Mei

Voiced By: Mai Nakahara (Japanese), Katie Griffin (English)

    Lovushka 

Aleksei

  • Adaptational Badass: In the Nintendo DS game, he has one of the strongest special moves on the game.
  • Animal Motifs: His bey has a wolf motif.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Rigs the arena with vibration-nullifying machinery during his battle with Yu that also allows his Bey to float. {{spoilers:It ultimately backfires when Yu decides to trash the arena and Masamune destroys the equipment.}}
  • Informed Ability: Anton mentioned that he was the strongest on The Team, but resolved to cheating for his battle with Yu. In the Sphere 360 battle, he mentioned that he had a special move, but it wouldn't help on this situation.
  • Megane
  • Nerds Are Sexy: Madoka certainly thinks so.
  • Ship Tease: With Madoka. Ginga/Madoka fans hate him for this.

Nowaguma

  • Includes Kyoya and Benkei.

Demure

    Excalibur 

Julian Konzern

Voiced By: Daisuke Kirii (Japanese), Shawn Meunier
  • Adaptive Armor: Gravity Destroyer can switch between attack and defense modes on a whim.
  • 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 Bey can manipulate it to "petrify" enemies when in attack mode. His Gravity Brave technique actually fires condensed gravity blasts to blow up his opponents..
  • 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 a breakdown.

Wales

Voiced By: Yoshimasa Hosoya (Japanese)

Sophie

Voiced By: Eri Kitamura (Japanese)

Klaus

Voiced By: Hisao Egawa (Japanese)
  • The Big Guy
  • The Brute: His battle style. He just sends Capricorn to smash into anything in his way, something that only works because of it's staggering offensive and defensive power.
  • Blank White Eyes: When he lost to Jack.
  • Germany: Country of origin.
  • Multicolored Hair
  • Nice Guy: Not counting his taunting with Chi-Yun, he's a decent guy, congratulates Masamune on his efforts during their battle, and isn't a prick like the rest of his team.
  • Shirtless Scene: His shirt tends to burst in the middle of a battle when he's at his limits.
  • The Juggernaut: Seriously, this guy is a powerhouse. His Capricorn can brute-force it's way through nearly anything without a scratch.

    Garcia 

Tropes fitting the entire team:

Argo

  • 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.

Jack

Voiced By: Kouki Uchiyama (Japanese)

Damian Hart

Voiced By: Romi Park (Japanese), Carman Melville (English)
  • The Brute
  • Berserk Button: He was starting to lose it in his fight with Kyoya when he was dragged into the wild and when Kerbecs started losing balance.
  • Demoted to Brute: Courtesy of Faust/Toby
  • Defeating the Undefeatable: He defeated Julian, Wales, and Sophie at the same time. The same people that gave Gan Gan Galaxy trouble and defeated Wang Hu Zhong.
  • Dragged Off to Hell: His finishing move, Hades Gate, essentially drags opponents into his own personal Hell, where he proceeds to destroy them.
  • Hellhound: Hades Kerbecs, being based on Cerberus.
  • Hellfire: Uses it to attack.
  • Light Is Not Good: White and golden clothes, golden Beyblade and fire powers. Yep.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Kerbecs. It moves insanely fast, can take a ton of punishment due to it's high defense and stamina typing, and can most definitely deliver crushing blows with it's bladed Fusion Wheel.
  • Playing with Fire: In addition to having several relations to fire, Hades Drive, his special move, has Kerbecs circle the arena at blinding speeds, using the friction to ignite the place and incinerate his opponent.
  • Psychotic Smirk
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Gave it to Julian causing one of the saddest moments in Beyblade history. He tried to give one to Kyoya, but it didn't work.
  • Villainous Breakdown: After his fights with Ginga and Kyoya.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Absent from Fury.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Plus a little green section.

Faust/Toby

Voiced By: Kouki Miyata (Japanese)
  • Badass Long Coat
  • Beyblade of Mass Destruction: Twisted Tempo. The endless energy it produces is said to be able to melt the entire planet should it go out of control, which it inevitably does.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy
  • Deflector Shields: Tempo seemingly has one at the beginning of Faust's battle with Gingka and Masamune, only for it to be broken by their combined attacks. Needless to say, Tempo didn't really need it.
  • Determinator: Will stop at nothing to ensure Twisted Tempo never stops spinning.
  • Gone Horribly Right: Tempo was the result of data collected over the entire Beyblade World Championships, including the strongest left and right rotating Beys, in an experiment to create the strongest Bey ever to power the Spiral Force. Of course, this becomes a major problem when it's said Spiral Force threatens the world and the time comes to stop Tempo, which is now essentially a super-powered, Beyblade-shaped nuclear reactor.
  • The Dragon
  • Ill Boy
  • Heel–Face Turn: After Toby was freed from his brainwashing thanks to Zeo and Masamune he returned as a good guy, and in Fury, he got a new bey, and his winning streak is far greater than what it was as Faust. In Fury, he and Zeo nearly Curb Stomped Tsubasa and in the Sphere 360, the three of them managed to take down the Garcias
  • Meaningful Name
  • Nigh Invulnerable: Tempo, full stop! It boasts impossibly high defenses to ensure nothing can even scratch it. It's heavy weight also makes it impossible to smack around like most other Beys. Even the combined attacks of Masamune and Ginka weren't enough to make it budge, and to make it worse, the force of the attack is generally deflected back at them. In order to defeat it, Ginka and Masamune had to attack it while it was weakened by Ryuga's intervention.
  • Reality Warper: Tempo has the ability to bend space and time, which is used in his special move, Spiral Dimension, which creates a black hole to drag his enemies into another dimension.
  • Unrealistic Black Hole: Tempo can create them.
