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.
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 say "Uncle".
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 Devils, 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.
