Hikaru Hizashi, also known as Hikaru Asahi (朝日ヒカル, Asahi Hikaru) in Japan, is one of two main protagonists along with his younger brother, Hyuga, of the anime/manga series, Beyblade Burst Surge. He fights with his Beyblade Kolossal Helios Zone 1B, until it was destroyed by Lain Valhalla. He later evolves his destroyed Bey into Helios Volcano Ou Zone'+Z.

Appearance

Hikaru is an average-height boy with slightly tanned skin, lime-green eyes, smooth blue hair styled in a 9-piece mohawk with light-blue tips, 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 like blue fire.

Personality

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 the vine he was hanging from snapped, 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 on arrogance.

Biography

Background

Hikaru, aged 10, watching Aiger's title match.

Hikaru and his brother have been enjoying Beyblade for at least two years leading up to Beyblade Burst Surge, as shown by how Hikaru was inspired by Aiger Akabane during the latter's title match that took place two years ago. After Hikaru and Hyuga moved to the Asahi Family Restaurant, they went into the Bombers Gym for the first time to practice. There, they were greeted by Chuck, Gun, and Raika, who initially thought the brothers were breaking in. The three explained to Hikaru and his brother that the former coach quit, causing all the bladers on the team to quit as well. Determined to help, Hikaru and Hyuga asked to join the club, vowing to "bring the team back on its feet," Hikaru's exact words.

After joining the Bombers, Hikaru and Hyuga got more serious about blading. They were shown to battle in district tournaments, attend exhibition matches featuring legendary bladers, and watch title matches.

Similar to the earlier parts of Beyblade Burst Surge, the brothers were known to argue due to their different styles of blading. Hikaru was very strategic and good at defending, while Hyuga formed no strategy and was good at attacking. Most of their tag battles at district matches ended in what Chuck recalled as a disaster, with both brothers losing.

Special Moves

  • Sparking Shoot: When a Blader has achieved complete synchronization with his/her Sparking Beyblade, the Launcher will illuminate and sparkle, granting the bey a temporary increase in speed and power. To activate this special state, a Blader must Launch their Bey at optimum efficiency, which powers the mechanism to release the Sparks.
  • Zone Counter: Helios' Zone driver gains a steady speed boost while drifting around the bey stadium, like Counter Break.
  • Twin Strike: Both Helios and Hyperion clash together to create a big spark and come crashing down the opponents for a heavy blow.
  • King Strike: Helios, while in its 10-bladed mode, swoops in to deal heavy damage, much like Suoh Genji’s Swirling Inferno.
  • Limit Break Volcano: The Limit Break System allows the shape of the "Volcano" Ring to initiate a transformation, which causes the outer frame of the Volcano Ring to rapidly rotate, revealing 5 additional blades that can be used to reflect the damage of oncoming attacks back to the opposing Bey.

Relationships

Hyuga Hizashi

Hyuga is Hikaru's younger brother. While the two love each other and generally get along well, Hikaru often gets annoyed by Hyuga's reckless behavior and laziness. Hikaru nonetheless deeply cares about his brother and often praises him whenever he wins a battle. Hikaru has also on occasion attempted to get Hyuga to try and come up with a plan for defeating his opponents instead of simply attacking head-on. This was shown in his success on defeating Rantaro after watching lots of video analyses of him and Rantaro's battles.

Raika

Chuck

Gun

Valt Aoi

Both Hikaru and Hyuga hold deep admiration for Valt. Upon witnessing the latter's battle with Rantaro and Silas, the brothers were inspired to create their own Beys, and start their journey of one day defeating all of the Legendary Bladers. Valt, in turn, was impressed by the brothers' strong drive and readily accepted a battle with them once the two had gotten their Beys. When Hikaru became discouraged about not being able to speak to his partner and was worried Hyuga was getting ahead of him, Valt assures him.

Rantaro Kiyama

Rantaro Kiyama was Hikaru's and his brother Hyuga's coach for the team Bombers.

Silas Karlisle

Ranjiro Kiyama

Aiger Akabane

Hikaru is a huge fan of Aiger. He deeply admires Aiger and Achilles. At age 10, Hikaru watched the legendary battle between Aiger and Valt. At the Legend Festival they were both happy to have each other as teammates.

Lain Valhalla

Lain Valhalla was the one who destroyed his Kolossal Helios and Hyuga's Super Hyperion.
