Kristina Kuroda (クリスティーナ・クロダ, Kurisutīna Kuroda) or Kris (クリス, Kurisu) for short, is a recurring character in the anime/manga series, Beyblade Burst Evolution. She is the manager of BC Sol.


Kristina is a beautiful young teen with light blue eyes and long, dark pink hair that reaches her back.

In Evolution, She wears a thin black headband with a Beyblade symbol, and typical referee attire that is light pink with black stripes and a red bow and a skirt with four buttons and two white stripes. She also wore black tights and a pair of red shoes.

In Turbo and QuadDrive, she wears a half-pink/half-black dress and wears several blue-and-white bows around her attire. She also wears white arm warmers, white tights and a pair of pink flat shoes.


Kristina highly values being on time and on task, as she gets irritable with Kit Lopez when he sidetracks before leading Valt Aoi to El Astro - but shows noticeable pride in all of her students, no matter how experienced they are.

Generally, she follows the rules closely to do the best for her team, but is willing to bend them occasionally to help them reach their potential, like when she also invites Rantaro Kiyama into BC Sol even when he loses to Valt. She greatly respects those who work with her, such as Trad Vasquez - but is very competitive towards other teams, especially Theodore Glass and the American team, the Raging Bulls.

Kristina has been shown to be somewhat of a perfectionist, as when she doubts that her changes to BC Sol are helping the team, she admits to Ange Lopez that in her mind, failure is unacceptable and that there is no room for her to make mistakes in her decisions.

When Free injured his arm during his match with Valt, Kris convinced him to forfeit, stating that the safety and well-being of her teammates is her top priority.
