Ranzo Kiyama (ランソー・キヤマ, Ransō Kiyama) is a character appearing in the anime/manga series, Beyblade Burst QuadDrive. He is the cousin of Rantaro and Ranjiro Kiyama. His Beyblade was a Glide Roktavor Wheel Revolve 1S until it was accidentally destroyed by Bel Daizora, who helped him evolve it into Cyclone Roktavor Giga Never-6.
Ranzo is a tall boy with tanned skin, orange eyes, blonde hair styled in an upward spiral, and three bandage strips: a tan one on his nose and a white one on each cheek. His attire consists of an orange T-shirt with a white "R" outlined in red in the center and brown ends of the sleeves, a green bandana around his neck, orange sunglasses on his forehead, a red sleeveless jacket, light-blue shorts with black triangular sections, and a red and yellow pair of high-top shoes.
Like Rantaro and Ranjiro, Ranzo has a habit of sucking on a lollipop, but his is blue and yellow.
Ranzo is a boy of high energy. He is very friendly and enthusiastic, mostly when it comes to Beybattles. Ranzo's friendliness and way of communication causes other people to consider him 'annoying'.
Ranzo also cares most for his 'amigos', especially Bashara and Bel. This is further evidenced by finding Bashara when he disappeared, crying for him after listening to Bashara's plead to battle Bel, and the fact that he always choose him to practice with him. Ranzo's concern for Bel is further shown when he is cheering for the latter, as well as feeling sad for him when Destruction Belfyre is shattered and the Gates of Hell are closed. He, along with Hannah, came in to help Bel revive Belfyre and has been with Bel's side until now.

To make up for accidentally destroying Glide Roktavor, Bel helps Ranzo evolve his broken Bey into Cyclone Roktavor. During their rematch, Ranzo beats Bel with Double Winged Cyclone, making Bel genuinely angry at his loss.

Brazilian-born Ranzo Kiyama is a super strong Blader who’s been tearing it up in the South American league. He made the journey to Japan to challenge “the Dark Prince” after hearing about Phantom’s Gate. He’s more than happy to show people his signature pose or how to set the latest hair style. Some might say he has no personal boundaries, but Ranzo only sees potential friends wherever he goes.
