Hikaru Asahi (朝日ヒカル, Asahi Hikaru) is one of two main protagonists along with his younger brother, Hyuga, of the anime/manga series, Beyblade Burst Superking. He fights with his Beyblade, King Helios Zone 1B.
Hikaru is an average-height boy with slightly tanned skin, lime-green eyes, smooth blue hair styled in a 9-piece Mohawk, and an orange half-sun tattooed on his right cheek. His attire consists of a turquoise-blue dress shirt, a yellow tie, a short-sleeved navy-blue Letterman's jacket with light-blue sections on the sleeves and pockets, an "H" on the left flap, a yellow sun on the back, orange baggy pants, and black sneakers with turquoise-blue cuffs and three-sectioned stripped tips, and yellow laces, and a fingerless green-cuffed teal glove on his right hand.
When Hikaru resonates with his Beyblade, his hair briefly lights up on blue fire.
Hikaru can be described as the brains to his younger brother's brawn. He is generally calm, patient and level-headed; preferring to analyze his opponents and come up with strategies to defeat them, unlike his brother, who is quite reckless and charges into battles head-on.
He's also shown to act heroic when he selflessly grabbed Hyuga's arm when his vine was ripped, even referring to himself as a "hero" which implies that he has a moderate level of confidence but not as nearly as enough to border to arrogance.
Beyblade Burst Superking
- King Helios Zone 1B: Hikaru's primary Beyblade in Beyblade Burst Superking.
- Sparking Shoot:
- Zone Counter: Helios' Zone driver gains a steady spee boost while drifting around the bey stadium, like a fusion of Flash Launch and Counter Break.
- Twin Strike: Both Helios and Hyperion clash together and create a big spark and come crashing down the opponents doing massive damage.
- King Strike: Helios uses its 10 blade mode and swoops in to deal massive damage, much like Suoh Genji’s Swirling Inferno.

- Despite Hikaru and Hyuga being brothers, they can be considered as foils to each other: Hikaru is the calmer and more tactical of the two, while Hyuga is more reckless and hot-headed, Hikaru is left handed while Hyuga is right-handed, and they use beys that spin the opposite of each other.
- Even though Hikaru is older, his Bey is based off of the son of Hyperion, which is Hyuga's bey spirit.
- Furthermore, their Beys have relations to one another, as a nod to Hikaru and Hyuga being related to each other as well.

- Hikaru and his brother are the first pair of Burst main protagonists to be siblings, as well as the first pair of Burst main protagonists to share the same first letter in their names.
- Along with his brother, Hikaru is one of the only Burst main protagonists to not speak to their Bey in their debut.
- He owns a Blue Left-Spin Sparking Launcher.
- He is the first protagonists to have the word "Strike" in the name of a special move.
