Fly, Horusood!

Hoji Konda (コンダホウジ Konda Houji) is a character in the anime and manga series, Beyblade Burst. His Beyblade is Horusood H2 Upper Claw.


Hoji has dark brown curly hair and dark brown eyes. His regular attire consists of a black-and-red collared T-shirt with an orange undershirt, a pair of blue overalls, and tan cowboy boots.


Hoji is a gentle and honest character who remains loyal to Wakiya. He is shown to lack confidence at times, for instance when he asks to forfeit the match against Valt Aoi because he thought that Wakiya was implying that he (Hoji) was a weak blader. He is also a very determined person when it comes to achieving his goals.

Hoji has been known to be a very calm person and will often calm Wakiya down when he gets frustrated.

Given that he is the eldest of his siblings, Hoji is very responsible and gets along well with younger children.

Wakiya Murasaki

Wakiya is Hoji's best friend whom he addresses as Bocchan (坊っちゃん) in the Japanese version. Hoji's father works at the company that Wakiya's father owns, which is how the two met. They train together often and have been doing so for a long time, and due to this are very close friends. Wakiya also taught Hoji how to beyblade. In the English dub, Wakiya once told Hoji that he was like a brother to him.

In episode 45, Hoji was able to get Wakiya to calm down after the latter lost to Shu in the Individual Tournament, stating that he knew how much effort he put into that battle, and that he was not someone who would just give up after a single setback. After these words, Wakiya felt visibly touched, and recovered his spirit - then telling Hoji that it was no use waiting around since they had to keep training and getting stronger.

Toko Aoi and Nika Aoi

Hoji is shown to treat Valt's younger siblings well, likely stemming from the fact that he himself has four younger siblings. At one point, he helped the twins rescue a kitten from a tree.
