Norman Tarver (ノーマン・ターバー, Nooman Taabaa) is a character appearing in the anime/manga series, Beyblade Burst Evolution. His Beyblade was Noctemis N3 3Hit Jaggy but it was destroyed by Spryzen Requiem S3 0 Zeta after the final battle with Shu Kurenai.


Norman has very pale skin and dark eye bags, along with sea green hair drawn up into a short ponytail, with a stray lock of hair falling over his face. He wears a blue trench coat with red accents and buttons, a bright yellow turtleneck shirt, and black gloves, pants, and boots.

As Gold Eye, he wields a black, horned mask with additional yellow horns and yellow lenses. He wears a black uniform and coat with yellow accents.


Like other Snake Pit Bladers, Norman aims to be the best.



Beyblade Burst Evolution

Norman first appears as Gold Eye in the Snake Pit HQ along with Silver Eye and Ashtem. They spend their time observing Valt and his friends to understand their blading styles.

Later, during the International Blader's Cup, Norman appears as himself, competing in the tournament. He also informs Valt and his friends of his Snake Pit identity.


Special Moves

  • Colossus Hammer: While in Colossus Mode, Noctemis attacks the opponent with a crushing blow because of the weight distribution of shifting the parts of the Layer together. This allows Noctemis to knock the opponent on the ground dealing more damage.
  • Upper Crash: While in Upper Mode, Noctemis attacks the opponent with a move similar to an uppercut and usually knocks the opposing Bey out of the Beystadium.

During the International Blader's Cup he watched and commented on it with him.

Shu Kurenai

Norman has a one-sided rivalry with Shu, due to the fact that the latter had stolen his position of strongest Blader in the Snake Pit. He is only interested in regaining the said spot. After his defeat, Norman seems devastated at his loss.

  • He greatly resembles both Doji from the Metal Saga as well as the Joker from the Batman series.
  • As Gold Eye, his skin is not as pale as much. However, when his identity is revealed, Norman is depicted with pale skin. This implies that he may have lacked sleep sometime before the tournament. However, this simply could have been an oversight.
  • He was the first Blader in the International Blader's Cup, whose Beyblade, Noctemis N3 3Hit Jaggy, was destroyed by Shu Kurenai's bey, the second was Lui Shirosagi's Luinor L3 Destroy.
  • It is unknown where he went after his battle with Shu, as he is never seen again.
