Masamune has black hair with one red hair sticking out, brown eyes and peach skin. He wears a green sweatshirt with trim of sky-ish whitish blue has trim of dark blue for pockets and a line on his jacket arms, an orange shirt that has two parts sticking out of his jacket, Khaki shorts with lightning shapes line going down the seams, and brown gloves. He also wears green shoes with white socks.
He might be very persistent due to the fact that in one of the episodes he would follow Gingka around and carry on battling him.
Masamune is the new bottom of Gingka, who will eventually join his side like Kyoya did. He is a small kid, but he has a lot of guts. He follows Gingka wherever he goes to challenge him continually, losing almost everytime. Gingka and him often get into arguments over ridiculous things like the other's courage, or lack of courage. They will eventually pair up, with Yuu and Tsubasa, to represent Japan in the Beyblade: Metal Masters tournament. Masamune had previously not been able to participate in Battle Bladers.
He really likes a certain food shaped as a orange sticks that are extremely spicy. Everybody who eats some regrets it once their mouth burns, but he seems to be used to the taste.
Ray Unicorno, Masamune's Beyblade, can seemingly teleport by transforming itself into rays of green light, and reappearing elsewhere in the stadium. In battles and in practice, Masamune will never give up and keep working harder. His number one goal was to defeat Gingka, and he never stopped challenging him until he beat him. Afterwards, Gingka became better at controling Galaxy Pegasus though, and Masamune rejected his offer for a rematch after he saw how powerful the other's Beyblade was though...
Masamune has little self-restraint: if he disagrees with something, he will really not hesitate to say so, and he will be overly visual about it, shaking his arms around to illustrate his anger.
Ray Unicorno D125CS: Masamune's Beyblade in both the anime and manga.
Purple Lightning Flash, Masamune's first finishing move is Purple Lightning Flash (紫電の一閃, Shiden no Issen).
- Secretly, Masamune actually has a crush on Madoka, he often asks her if she's married (Obviously, she isn't) and gets punched in the gut every time.
