Beyblade Wiki

Kurt Baratier, known as Kurz Baratier (クルツ・バラティエ, Kurutsu Baratie) in Japan, is a character featured in the series Beyblade Burst Evolution. His Bey is Boom Khalzar 7Under Hunter. As stated in episode 4 of Beyblade Burst Turbo, he is ranked sixth in the world.


Kurt is a very tall man with an angular face, similar to Ghasem Madal. He also has spiked medium-aquamarine hair with a yellow streak of hair in the center, red eyes, purple earrings, red eye-shadow, and a purple tattoo on his right arm. He wears a black bodysuit with a green-metallic pauldron, with a purple strap, on his shoulder, and green-metallic gauntlets. Both the pauldron and gauntlets have purple markings on them, and he has a green-white fur scarf sewn in the strap. He also wears a light red-orange piece of cloth with a white frilled cuff tied around his waist with purple straps, which holds his launcher holster, green metallic material beneath his knees, and green-metallic shoes with purple soles, frames and borders.

In Turbo, Kurt's hair grew bigger, his pauldron is now segmented into three and colored dark-green, and the fur-scarf is bigger and colored lime-white.


Kurt has a mean and uncaring personality, much like Shu Kurenai as his alter-ego Red Eye. When Kurt battled Rantaro Kiyama, he unleashed his full power and defeated Berserk Roktavor, leaving scratches on it. He also has a habit of destroying things, such as when he almost crushed Genesis Valtryek's Layer under his foot.

However, Kurt later changes from a ruthless blader to a humble person, like when he kindly passes Valt's Ultimate Reboot tip to him. He showed interest in Valt and said that he was welcome to visit him in his underground domain anytime.



Beyblade Burst Evolution[]

Kurt was first introduced in the series as the leader of an underground Bey Club known for stealing their opponent's Beyblades when they've been defeated.

It's also revealed that Kurt was once the No. 1 Blader in the World, but gave up the title because he was unable to find any opponents who could rise to his level.

Beyblade Burst Turbo[]

Kurt appears in episode 4 where he is seen battling Valt for the World Champion title but fails to win it due to the latter winning with a Burst Finish. During the Dread tower arc, Kurt's underground domain can be seen in a few episodes. However, Kurt is noticeably absent.

Beyblade Burst Surge[]

Despite not appearing in the anime of Surge, Kurt was indirectly mentioned by Wakiya Murasaki in Chapter 87 of the Surge manga when Wakiya tells the Legendary Bladers, Hyuga Hizashi and Hikaru Hizashi that he has reports of all top bladers from A rank have been beaten by Lain Valhalla, one of the bladers being Kurt, Ghasem Madal and Boa Alcazaba.


Launch Style[]

  • Skyscraper Boost: Kurt jumps twice before launching and on his second jump launches his Bey from a height. Kurt has used this launch style in every battle he's been in.

Special Moves[]

  • Thunder Attack: Khalzar attacks the opposing Bey head on with one or a series powerful attacks that can usually overwhelm a Bey rather quickly.
  • Bolt Attack: Khalzar's Forge Disc shifts twice and aligns perfectly with the layer and causes the claws to come out of the layer and adds more power to Khalzar's attack. Then, Khalzar gains a boost of speed and goes in a perfectly straight line to attack the opponent head-on. This attack can be used in midair as a way to counterattack an opponent's blow. The move usually KOs or Bursts an opponent's Bey.
