Nowaguma (ウェルズ) is a member of the Russian team, Team Lovushka, with Anton, Aleksei, and Lera in the anime and manga series, Beyblade: Metal Masters. His main ambition is to go to space with his teammates Aleksei and Lera. After losing to Team Gan Gan Galaxy, he and his teammates finally obtain a sponsor, allowing them to accomplish their goal. His Beyblade is Rock Orso D125B.
For some odd reason, he wears a huge space suit that gives him the air of a bear because of his tall stature. Because of this costume, his voice is slightly blurred. In general, he is calm, almost shy, but he unleashes his furious style in Beyblade matches and tries to intimidate his opponents with his bear-like attributes; probably referring to his bey being Orso, with the beast being a bear. His hair covers his eyes.
Beyblade: Metal Masters
Nowaguma first appears in episode 13 along with other members of Team Lovushka, he battles Gingka to buy Aleksei time to copy information into his thumbdrive on Gan Gan Galaxy from Madoka's computer.
He next appears in the next episode, where he is chosen as the advanced guard for Team Lovushka, and battles Gingka in the cage stadium. The stadium supports his Orso as Gingka is unable to use his special move, so Nowaguma gets the upper hand. He seems like a entirely different person in battle as he fiercely attacks Gingka, however Gingka eventually uses the power from his bey to break through the cage and defeats him with his special move. Nowaguma keeps apologizing for his defeats, but Anton reveals that he used Nowaguma as a sacrifice. In the next episode he supports Aleksei in his battle against Yu. Although, his team loses the match and is eliminated from the tournament, they receive sponsors to fund their space program. Nowaguma hid all his powers from Gingka and the others.
Beyblade: Metal Fury
Nowaguma appears alongside Aleksei and Lera to participate in the Group B match of the Sphere 360. He is attacked by Jigsaw, though Lera protects him with her special move, however Jigsaw's second special move knocks his, Aleksei and Lera's beys out of the stadium.
