Echizen is a minor character in Metal Saga, debuting in Beyblade: Metal Fusion.
Echizen is a kind and respectful person who treats others right, especially to his then-best friend, Tetsuya Watarigani. It was also mentioned that Echizen is a powerful blader and the best in his home village. However, he is depicted as a shy coward, given that he flinched at the sight of Taraba and ran off in fear when Tetsuya was defeated by him.
Beyblade: Metal Fusion
He and Tetsuya Watarigani used to be best friends that greatly respected each other, had fun together and looked after each other. However, one day, Echizen had a challenger named Taraba. He immediately started shaking and hid behind Tetsuya. Seeing his friend cowering in fear, Tetsuya steps into battle as he says that he is Echizen. He lost the battle with his Mad Gasher CH120FS is covered in scratches and later, turned to find that Echizen had run away and left him alone. This was the reason why Tetsuya became a vengeful crab-freak, and later made him pay with the help of some crabs. After taking down Taraba, Tetsuya proceeded to destroy Echizen's Beyblade as he begged for mercy. Considering the setting of the scene, it is probable that Echizen was continuously attacked by those crabs. He later appeared in the finale where he jumps along with others to celebrate Gingka Hagane`s victory over Ryuga.
