Beyblade Wiki

Lee, known as Lai Chen (ライ・チェン, Rai Chen) in Japan, is a character in the Original Series, consisting of Beyblade and Beyblade: G-Revolution. He is the leader of the White Tigers which was then later renamed White Tiger X. His Bit-Beast and Beyblade is Galeon.



Lee is a fierce competitor in the Beyblade series. He holds grudges for years and uses that as his advantage in battle. He is well respected and in turn respects his village and its people. He also perfected all the White Tigers attacks. He believed that mastering what attacks are known is better than learning new stuff, contradicting Ray's own views on learning new ones that he would eventually bring back to the village.

Even though Lee wanted revenge on Ray, he still held his honor. This is shown when Lee gets exceedingly angry with Kevin when he tries unsuccessfully to steal a floppy disk with the Bladebreaker's data on it. Lee claims that Kevin's actions of stealing shames and dishonors the White Tigers. As a result, he confiscates Kevin's Galman.

In G-Revolution, his fiery rage dies down and he becomes a strong and focused blading partner of Ray's. However because he is an emotional character, it sometimes leads him to lose his cool and even break down.




Lee was born in a secluded mountain village community in China, and is the older brother of Mariah. Because their home was isolated from society in general, it did not possess modern technologies such as computers or cell phones. As such, Lee spent time with his best friend Ray Kon, his other friends Gary and Kevin as well as his sister. The group often practiced Beyblading, alongside doing chores around the town.

Eventually, the group came together as the White Tigers, planning to one day become the greatest beybladers on Earth. He aimed to gain the power of the White Tiger, but the village elder, who was also his grandfather, handed it down to Ray Kon, his best friend, instead. This started the grudge which was fueled further when Ray left the village. After Ray's departure, Lee became the leader of the White Tigers.


Beyblade: 2000[]

Lee holds a grudge with Ray, who left the White Tigers in order to travel the world and learn new blading techniques, as well as improve upon the ones he already has.

Lee saw this as a betrayal, and since he was Ray's best friend, it hit him especially hard. Lee intends to take Driger away from Ray because he feels that Ray is a traitor and that he (Lee) should be the one to wield the White Tiger.

In the final match in the Asian tournament with Ray, Ray defeats him and the two finally made up, as Lee realized he made the right choice. After the Asian tournament, their village undergoes many changes, including the elders allowing the White Tigers to leave and explore the world.

When the finals of the World Tournament were about to start, Lee and the White Tigers are invited for an exhibition match. Upon meeting the All Starz, they have a friendly match, with the final battle between Lee and Michael ending in a tie.

In the match against the Demolition Boys, Lee faces Kai (who had defected from the Bladebreakers) and his Black Dranzer. Lee is defeated and Galeon is taken from him, though he eventually gets Galeon back when Tyson defeats Tala in the final battle.

Beyblade: G-Revolution[]

In Beyblade: G-Revolution, Lee becomes Ray's blading partner when Ray leaves the Bladebreakers and becomes the leader of White Tiger X.

In their first match of the tournament, he and Ray face Lee the BBA revolution (Tyson and Daichi) and defeat them, NOTE: Lee has the pleasure of eliminating Tyson.

In their next match, Lee clearly had the lead against Miguel but Miguel blinded Lee and knocked Galeon out of the stadium, winning the match.

Lee later faced two mysterious circus bladers who easily defeated him, he soon found out they were F-Dynasty. In their match up with F-Dynasty, Lee has a mental breakdown and his Beyblade starts going completely out of control. Ray is forced to put Lee into submission, costing them the match. Their next match would be against the PPB All Starz Max and Rick which would end up being a four-way battle royal. In the end, Lee came out as the winner.

In Lee's final match of the tournament, he was easily defeated by Tala, then Ray was defeated by Kai, eliminating them from the tournament. Lee was next scene in the tournament exhibition battle royale, in which he was eliminated by Mariah with the help of Rick.

Lee would be seen in many other scenes but he would next battle against Mystel from the BEGA League, whom he was easily defeated by. Although Lee was in disbelief over Ray wanting to leave with Mystel to learn more about BEGA, he and the rest of the team understand Ray's choice and let him go. It's then assumed that Lee resumed the leadership of the team since Ray rejoined the BBA Revolution.

Lee eventually joined in helping the newly reunited BBA Revolution (now renamed the G Revolutions) train for the battle against BEGA.

Finally, Lee helped Rick fight off Ming-Ming and Crusher but battled to no avail, Tyson interrupting their battle.


Tyson Granger[]

In the Asian Tournament saga, Lee and Tyson did not get along that much, because of Ray joining the Bladebreakers and leaving the White Tigers and his hometown, just like when Lee and Tyson both battled in 1 win, lose and tie in Ep. #17: A Score to Settle.

Lee and Tyson became friends and allies in the Saga of the Biovolt Bladers, where Lee and his team are seen again in Ep. 41: Out of the Past. In Ep. 50: New and Cyber-Improved, Lee, alongside Michael Summers and Robert Jürgens are seen once again, just to help Tyson beat Biovolt's Demolition Boys team.

In the G-Revolution season, Lee and Tyson are still allies/friends and they respect one another. And, he also helps and supports Tyson to stop the newly-reformed Boris Balkov and his BEGA organization in the BEGA League and BEGA Justice 5 Tournament sagas.

  • In the first season, when Lee's stats are shown, is based on non-anime sources and was borrowed from his Beyblade Galeon boxart. Not related to G-Revolution, the design in G-Revolution is actually what he was suppose to look like in the first place. Season 1 got his colour scheme wrong in the anime.
  • Lee shares his voice actor with Spencer, Kane Yamashita and Kyoya Tategami.
  • Lee's Japanese name, "Lai", is short for the Japanese spelling of the word Lion, "Laion". Not only does the name matches Ray's Japanese name of "Rei", but it also emphasizes the lion vs tiger rivalry between them, which comes from their assignments as King of Beasts in respectively the West and the East.
  • Lee's Zodiac is a Aries.
