— Laban Vanot, Beyblade Burst Turbo - Episode 45

Laban Vanot (ラバン・ヴァノ, Raban Vano) is a character of the anime Beyblade Burst Turbo. He fights with his Beyblade Vice Leopard 12Lift Destroy, which was destroyed by Phi, and repaired afterward.


Laban is a short, tan-skinned boy with dark-blue, wild hair, and light teal-blue markings under both lime-green eyes. Laban's attire is Egyptian-style, with a large gold and silver collar with a cerulean stripe in the middle and blue string tied around the rib cage to the back, a golden arm band on each upper arm, a golden belt with a gold-rimmed blue and white kilt tied around electric-blue pants, and brown shoes with collars around the ankles and openings exposing both feet's bridges.


Laban Vanot has a personality slightly similar to Aiger Akabane, which means he is always ready to take on any opponent and makes friends easily. He also has the ability to predict the future with the help of stones as shown in Beyblade Burst Turbo - Episode 13. He also can communicate with animals, as shown with a leopard and a lizard. Even his launching style shows how much wild and catlike he is.

Special Moves[]

  • Howling Bite: Leopard uses the powerful fangs on its Layer to bite down and grab the opposing Beyblade, then spins around at greater speed, creating a miniature cyclone before tossing the Bey at the Beystadium's floor or wall, or another opposing Bey to deal massive damage.
