Arman Kusaba, also known as Amane Kusaba (草葉アマネ/草葉天音, Kusaba Amane) in Japan, is a character appearing in the anime series, Beyblade Burst Rise. He fights with his Beyblade, Bushin Ashindra Hurricane Keep Ten, and is a member of the Victories, and the older brother of Taka Kusaba.
Arman has tall, dark brown hair, green eyes, and curly eyebrows. He sports a black undershirt, a yellow martial arts robe with a white symbol outlined in magenta, green pants, and green shoes with white toecaps and magenta highlights. He also has green markings under each eye.
Arman also has a green headband with a white symbol that he puts on when preparing for Beybattles. When he isn't wearing it, he keeps it tied around his left sleeve.
Arman is a very self-confident, intelligent and hard working Blader. He doesn't like people, such as Fumiya dissing his teammate. He has a bit of a mischievous streak, and likes to try and make his opponents beg for mercy.
Outside of battle, Arman is generally quiet and faintly reserved too. He's also protective of his little brother, Taka, shown when he lightly scolded him for getting in trouble with another Blader who wanted to steal Ashindra.
Arman is also quite loyal to his team, as he was the only who stayed with the Victories when the majority of them left for Fumiya's team.
In Beyblade Burst Rise, it is revealed that after everyone left team Victories for Fumiya's Spark Wings, Arman stayed with the Victories saying that he liked Tango Koryu's teaching style. He is also a big rival of Fumiya Kindo. They have been rivals for a long time.
- Bushin Ashindra Hurricane Keep Ten: Arman's primary Beyblade in Beyblade Burst Rise.
- Bushin Guard: Ashindra uses six of the twelve blades on its Bushin Layer Base to create a lime-green whirlwind that surrounds itself and defends Ashindra from the opposing Beyblade's attacks.
- Hurricane Defense: Ashindra uses the Hurricane Disc's free-spinning feature to deflect incoming attacks.
- Tower Counter: Using its Keep Driver, and the stadium slope, Ashindra speeds up for a counterattack.
- Double Bushin Guard: An upgraded form of Bushin Guard, two times more powerful. Ashindra uses all twelve blades on the Bushin Layer Base and creates a bigger and stronger lime-green whirlwind that surrounds itself and defends Ashura from the opposing attacks like never before.
