Plot

Beyblade: Metal Fury

Hunting for Legends

Johannes past is unknown but he decided to become one of the seekers of Nemesis in order to bring on a new dawn of Beyblade. Looking to revive nemesis he tracked Yuki Mizusawa as he gathered Legendary Bladers such as Gingka Hagane. After finally confronting them Johannes reveals that he is looking to take Pegasus and use its Star Fragment in order to revive Nemesis. Gingka refuses to go with Johannes and decides to battle instead, Johannes looking to take it one way or another.

Johannes struggles against his first target; Gingka Hagane

Clearly, Gingka has the base advantage in the upcoming battle but Johannes uses a combination of tricks in order to gain the upper-hand. First, he leads Gingka into a narrow space where his Pegasus cannot build up speed and overwhelms him with Lynx's higher track at its base height. Gingka escapes this but cannot gain the upper-hand because of Lynx's amazing balance when falling, always landing on its feet.

This is when Johannes reveals Lynx's track height change and gets the upper-hand on Gingka, but before he can finish it Kyoya Tategami intervenes. Johannes is shocked to learn that Kyoya has also become a Legendary Blader and retreats, knowing that he cannot win a two on one battle. He then decides to follow the gang to China where he discovers that there may be a Legendary Blader among the Beylin Temple Bladers. 

Johannes battles potential legend blader; Dashan

Johannes infiltrates the temple and attacks several bladers, causing him to be caught by Gingka and his friends, including the Beylin temple leader; Dashan Wang. Gingka decides to battle Johannes but Dashan interrupts and goes on to battle him. Johannes agrees to battle to see if Dashan is a legendary blader. The two battle and Johannes struggles against Dashan's unique beyblade; Rock Zurafa which uses its rubber wings to repel Lynx.

Johannes finds a loophole in his attacks by using his Lynx's height change to battle back against Dashan. Dashan is able to maintain his lead in the battle and nearly defeats Johannes. Although Dashan is infact an impressive beyblader, Johannes does not sense the precense of a star fragment in his beyblade and decides to retreat. Knowing that Dashan's not a legendary blader makes it obvious that no one else there is either, leading him to flee. 

Johannes decides to search for a partener for the upcoming tag team tournament where a Legendary Blader is likely to be. He then spots the infamous "Crimson Flash" in action who he believes to be the legendary blader. Johannes finds a friend named Motti who shares his love for cats, then enters the ToRyumon Tag Team Tournament. 

In the first round of the Tournament Johannes dominates his opponents alone, telling Motti to stay back while he wins. He then watches over the next matches to see if he can spot the crimson flash again but cannot. In the second round matches, Johannes is faced with Legendary Blader; Kyoya Tategami. He tells Motti to stay back once again while he battles the fierce Lion like Blader. 

Johannes clashes with Kyoya at ToRyumon

He causes Kyoya to waste his energy by continuing to dodge his attacks until Kyoya takes a defensive stance. During the pause in the battle Joahnnes decides to attack but his attacks seem to be of no use, this is due to Kyoya's mastery of Leone's defence mode. Benkei then decides to attack Motti and nearly defeats her, to stop both he and Motti from losing Johannes attacks and knocks both Motti and Benkei from the stadium, allowing he and Kyoya to fight it out. 

Kyoya decides to finish the battle by unleashing a giant tornado, but Johannes claims that this will do him no good. But unfortunately for Johannes the twister lifts Lynx off the ground and allows Kyoya to activate his new special move which also defeats Johannes and eliminates him from the ToRyumon tournament.

After the tornment he tries to recurit Aguma and Bao to his side by telling them how they got the star fraggment

He is next seen at Dynamis' Temple, where he, along with the Beylin Fist trail Gingka and the others. He confronts the group eventually, taking on Nile Benki and Demure, with Aguma battling Kyoya. Both Nemesis bladers are defeated, and Gingka's friends manage to escape. Then, he meets the bladers at the summit of the mountain and tries to take on Dynamis, but cannot penetrate Jade Jupiter's defenses. They flee after hearing the tale of the legendary bladers from Dynamis.

Next, he is seen at the Beystar Island championship, scouting for the next legendary blader. He wins battles easyly in the tournament. Eventually, Chris turns out to be the legendary blader in question, and by the promise of granting him whatever he wants, Johannes garners him to the side of the Nemesis bladers. Ryuga later appears and tries to take Phantom Orion B:D's power but Johannes saves him and gets beaten by him. Afterwords they all retreat. Later he takes chris to the mayn ruins and becomes suprised when he sees Dynamis there. Pluto explaned that he brainwashed him to serve his purpose. When Nemeisis first appears, he wached Chris, Aguma, and Dynamis all battle and lost to it.
