Phoenix (フェニックス, Fenikkusu)i s a reccuring character in the Metal Saga, making his debut Beyblade: Metal Fusion.
He is the mysterious alter ego of Ryo Hagane, who watched over Gingka and his friends Journey against the Dark Nebula. Ryo originally disbanded his Phoenix days but dons it when need be. Even so Phoenix is a powerful Beyblader who turns his enemies to ashes with his Burn Fireblaze 135MS.
Phoenix is always dressed in a red coat, reaching down to his knees. He also constantly wore a metal mask and wig that appear to sybbolize a phoenix, to hide his identity. He wears a black/brown shirt and long pants for the time being and carries Burn Fireblaze on his belt.
Beyblade Metal Fusion
Phoenix appears out of nowhere to Gingka and his friends, throughly. Phoenix and Gingka have a battle and Phoenix crushes Gingka's Beypointer. Nearing the Finale, Phoenix is shown to be Gingka's father during when he saved Hyoma and Kenta from chandelier shards and when one shard chipped off his mask.
