Phi (ファイ Fai) is a character appearing in the anime and manga series, Beyblade Burst Turbo. He fights with his Beyblade, Phoenix P4 10 Friction. He is the main antagonist of Turbo, and the elder brother of Hearts. After defeating his brother and consuming Dead Hades' power, Phi transformed his Bey into Dead Phoenix 0 Atomic.
Phi is a tall, fair skinned man with long white hair and heterochromia eyes: a blue right eye and a red left eye. His attire consists of a space-cadet blue sweatshirt with white borders on the sleeves and a red symbol, a crimson coat with a three-pronged tail and a shade of yellow borders and stripes, a white belt with indigo studs and buckle with an orange-red border, indigo diamond-shaped earrings, and burgundy pants fused with a pair of shoes.
When he uses the dark power, the sclera of his eyes turns black, his voice becomes a little distorted, and his aura also changes from a reddish orange color to a dark purple.
During his time in the Battleship Cruise, Phi appeared introvert and kept to himself. He is shown to be calm and rude at the same time, and seems to possess an evil presence radiating from him and his Bey Phoenix P4. Due to his connection to his Bey, Phi has a thirst for conflict and destruction, as he watched the battles during the cruise to see who would be a worthy opponent, even as he destroyed Laban's Beyblade Vice Leopard, and broke Kyle Hakim's phone as Phi noticed the suspicious things Kyle was doing. He also likes to toy with his opponents, as he taunted Valt and promised he'll crush his Beyblade.
His dark power has also seemed to now possess Aiger Akabane, causing him to be more aggressive, uncaring, arrogant, ruthless, and powerful. Phi seemed to cure Aiger after he defeats him and destroys Z Achilles.

Phi destroyed Laban's Leopard L4 after Laban tried to read his future.
Phi destroyed Kyle's phone when he tried to cheat.
Hearts is Phi's younger brother and both share a condition called Heterochromia iridum. While the two initially had little interaction at first, flashbacks of their past revealed that when the brothers were first presented with Revive Phoenix and Dead Hades, Phi originally wanted Dead Hades, but Hearts claimed it first. When he demanded that Hearts give the bey to him, he refused and kept Hades to himself which made Phi angry. From that day, Phi and Hearts’ relationship was severely strained.
