Bel Daizora, known as Bell Daikokuten (大黒天ベル, Daikokuten Beru) in Japan, is the main protagonist of the anime/manga series, Beyblade Burst QuadDrive. He is known as the Dark Prince, or the Demon King (魔王, Maō) in Japan, and fought with his Beyblade, Destruction Belfyre Nexus Venture-2, until it was destroyed by Rashad Goodman. After Belfyre's destruction, he evolved it into Devastate Belfyre Almight-2. He is the grandson of Jinemon Daizora.
Bel is a short boy with a multi-color hair: a red Mohawk and dark-purple hair with magenta rhombus highlights, pale skin, turquoise eyes, and black eyeliner. His attire consists of a gray shirt with a right long sleeve that sports a black cuff, the left sleeve is rolled up to the shoulder and a magenta cat-style skull, a black Dracula-style cape with a red interior, a brown belt with a gold buckle, dark-gray pants with a black strap on each leg, azure and yellow striped long socks, white boots with crimson soles, an azure band around his left bicep, and a fingerless black-cuffed maroon glove on his left hand.
When Bel resonates with his Beyblade, the magenta rhombus highlights in his hair glow.
Despite the title he gives himself, Bel isn't really sinister in any way. Rather he's simply an eccentric and somewhat socially awkward boy with a taste for theatrics. That said, he's proud and mischievous and knows how to portray an intimidating persona that, coupled with his impressive natural skills and thirst for victory, help to make him live up to his self-appointed title.
Prior during the beginning of the season, Bel is shown to be more intimidating whenever he encounters a new blader coming in to challenge him. He is very proud of himself and can already tell victory even before the start of a battle.
Bel is also a boy who likes to prank others. He pranked Bashara and his younger sister Hanna in Beyblade Burst QuadDrive - Episode 01. He also pranked Bashara,Hanna, and Ranzo in Episode 03. He prank Valt and Hanna in Episode 04. And, he, Jinemon, Valt, and Ranzo pranked Bashara, Hannah, and the others by acting as zombies.
Bel also causes trouble sometimes like when he and Ranzo filled up the whole house of the Suiro family with bubbles due to fight in cleaning the dishes and when he messed up the whole training grounds of El Astro because of trying to copy Free's training regimen.
Bel is also excited sometimes that he wants to see new things quickly, like when he snuck in El Astro just to see the new Orbit Stadium. Due to this, Valt Aoi always thinks that Bel is really hilarious.
Although Bel likes to prank others, he usually gets caught up by his grandfather's pranks, like when Jinemon pranked Bel, Bashara, and Ranzo when they want to see the Orbit Stadium.
Bel hates losing and always strives to win. Although he lost some of his battles, he declares every defeat as a ‘preparation for victory’. He can also be upset when he lost multiple times, mostly seen when he is walking down in Spain in dismay after being defeated by Bashara in episode 8.
Bel greatly respects strong Bladers, mostly those whom he know, like Valt, Free, Shu, etc, still with a drive to defeat them. They mostly became his inspirations in upgrading Belfyre even further.
Bel also sports his mischievous side mostly when someone enters the Phantom's Gate, or when he feels like it. More of his pranks are shown during the Japanese ending credits.
Bel has a tendency to do whatever he pleases, even disobeying the rules. This is shown during episode 11, where he ran off to challenge Free despite the fact that the latter is about to battle Rashad, to which he decided to cancel. He even tried to do the same after being amazed by Lui's Guilty Longinus, but Lui declined his challenge.
Like Valt, Aiger, Dante, Hyuga and Hikaru, Bel also has a strong resonance with his Beyblade, notably by talking to his Bey and sensing Belfyre through telepathy.

Bel Daizora is known as the Dark Prince and Phantom’s Gate is his kingdom. Just like any pampered prince, Bel hates when things don’t go his way. That’s why he works extra hard to make sure he always wins. Armed with a rich imagination, Bel invented the Quad System all on his own. But it’s not all bursts and Beys; Bel often focuses his “creativity” on pranks and booby-traps for anyone unfortunate enough to stumble upon his lair.

Jinemon is Bel's grandfather. Both enjoy pranking each other and Bel enjoys Jinemon's food, too.
Belfyre is the personification of Bel's bey. He is there for Bel when he's thinking of ways to evolve Belfyre or when he's sad.
Bel first met Bashara when he got inside Phantom's Gate, where Bel resides. In the first episode, Bel himself challenged Bashara in a battle. Without hesitation, Bashara accepted and introduced his Bey, Demise Spellscraper. Bashara scorned out about Belfyre being all lightweight when suddenly it was able to endure the attack. He was astounded with Belfyre's endurance, and with Belfyre delivering the final strike, the match ended with a Burst Finish, with Bashara losing. This prompted him to always visit Bel. Even though later in the series he defects to Rashad’s team, he doesn’t harbour any resentment for Bel.
At first, Lui did not see Bel as a worthy opponent, openly calling him a disappointment after he lose to Ilya's Ifritor. However was impress by Bel copying Luinor's power with the L Gear but was disappoint when he could not use it full power. Lui eventually became impressed with Bel after helping him unlocking Belfyre's true strength and expresses joy for able to fight him at his fullest.
In the DB Manga, after Jinemon took Bel and his friends to Ogre Island so that Bel can battle Lui. Bel eventually secured Lui's respect after defeating him with Lui gave him the L Gear to complete Perfect Belial.
Initially, the 2 were on neutral terms, but over time Bel’s personality started to rub Rashad the wrong way and vice versa, which culminated in Destruction Belfyre’s destruction at the end of the Dynamite Battle Tour. However, episode 36 showed the 2 of them getting along, implying that they don’t purely hate each other.
