Phenomeno Payne (フェノメノ･ペイン, Fenomeno Pein) is a character appearing in the anime/manga series, Beyblade Burst QuadDrive. He holds a vendetta against Rashad Goodman after previously losing to him in battle as a rookie blader in Europe. He later reappears with the title of the Phoenix (不死鳥, Fushichō), with his new Quad Beyblade, Prominence Phoenix Tapered Metal Universe-10, seeking to defeat Rashad.
Phenomeno has blue eyes and pink hair with cyan highlights with a bang the covers his right eye. His hair on top is shorter while the sides are near waist-length, hanging over his left shoulder near his neck. He wears an orange and black bodysuit with black and orange stripes surrounding the outfit, pink flame-like wings attached to his chest with a V- shaped flame crest. These wings bursts to flames whenever he does his launch. He also adorns a red annulated armwear with two ring-shaped arm braces on the wrists placed on his left arm, black gloves with a cyan and red square on the back of his hands, a red annulated tube for a belt with two similar-but-broken tubes situated at the back trunk. He also dons a yellow long kilt with black edges and two black stripes in the left.
Phenomeno competed in the European Junior League, but was defeated by Rashad in the finals of the league, who told him "Your blading style is boring". The word "boring" stayed in Phenomeno's memories, until he remembered it after seeing Rashad battle against Bel in the Great Aerial Tour. Due to this, he created his Bey Prominence Phoenix seeking to defeat Rashad. As his dream of defeating Rashad burns, his hatred began to burn too, as seen by Valt and Shu.
