Plot

Beyblade: Shogun Steel

As Neo Battle Bladers was just beginning for tournament play and for Bladers to enter, Genjūro Kamegaki oversaw Crimson Challenger, Ren Kurenai in her immense and swift defeat of multiple Bladers. Not intimidated but impressed, he challenged Ren to a battle for the placing of Neo Battle Bladers and with Ren's zealous attitude, she accepted without a doubt.

With his Beyblade, Bandit Genbu F230TB against Ren's Thief Phoenix E230GCF, the two Beys clashed in an epic battle as Ren commanded Phoenic to issue hits while Genjūro just had his Genbull dodge every single hit, in a defensive manner. Yet, even with Phoenic's beast roaring in glory as the firebird had, she had no way of knowing that the tables would turn when he let out Bandid Genbu's beast of the Black Tortoise and with a Special Move, threw Thief Phoenic out of the BeyStadium with Ren out of the competition.

He soon receives a call from the heads of DNA, asking him how the battle ended up and assured them that he won and that everything was going as they had precisely planned to.

He then battles Sakyo for a place in the Final Eight, and still had a chance to win. But the Dragon Emperor defeats him and knocks his Genbull out, eliminating him from the tournament causing Sakyo to move on to be one of the final eight.

    • Their respective Beyblades are also based on the same mythological creature, the Black Tortoise which is known as "Genbu" in Japanese.
  • His surname, Kamegaki (亀垣) is Japanese for "turtle fence", which refers to his Beyblade and how it defends itself in battle.
