Drum Koryu (虹龍ドラム, Kōryū Dorumu; ; ; ) is the main protagonist of the anime/manga series, Beyblade Burst GT.
Drum is a young boy of average height. He has green eyes, blonde hair with a blue, horn-shaped highlight on each side of his temple, and bronze colored, short eyebrows. Drum also has a red and yellow marking on both cheeks under his eyes.
For his attire, Drum sports a white collared shirt with a red tie, a red fingerless glove for his left hand, teal baggy pants with light-blue suspenders hanging on the sides, white dress shoes, and a blue jacket with three lime stripes on each side, yellow sections on the sleeves and wrist collar, and a red "D" on the left jacket flap.
Drum is an optimistic, passionate, easy-going and earnest Blader. When Drum first saw Slash Valkyrie defeat him with it's golden aura, he was surprised and excited and it inspired him to make his own GaTinko bey.
Drum is very resilient and will keep on battling the same opponent until he takes them down.
