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.

Appearance

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.

Personality

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'.

He can be too overreactive sometimes, especially when he wins or loses a battle. A notable example is when he spun Bashara out of joy and danced after winning against Bel in episode 7.

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.

Like Rantaro and Ranjiro, he also bites his lollipop when fired up, notably when he saw Bel creating the V Gear.

Beyblades

Launch Styles

  • Lightning Launch: When a Blader has achieved complete synchronization with his Beyblade, the Launcher will illuminate and sparkle, granting the bey a temporary increase in speed and power.

Special Moves

  • Roaring Tornado: While spinning at great speed, Glide Roktavor generates a cyclone with its Ring, increasing its own speed at an even greater force.
  • Super Tornado: Rotating at an even higher speed, Glide Roktavor channels its momentum to its wings to generate an upward force and create an even larger tornado with energy blades.
  • Double Winged Cyclone: Just like Roktavor Storm, Roktavor Typhoon, and Glide Tornado, Cyclone Roktavor uses the stamina wings on its Cyclone Blade to generate a cyclone to protect itself from the opposing Beyblade.

Trivia

  • Unlike Rantaro and Ranjiro, Ranzo's name is pronounced as his first then last name in Japanese, rather than his last then first name.
    • This is likely because his name is not natively written in Japanese; Ranzo's last name "Kiyama" is written in Katakana (キヤマ) rather than in Kanji (黄山).
  • Ranzo is Brazilian and can speak Portuguese, making him the first character in the Burst series to be able to speak another language.
  • Ranzo is the third character to own a Glide Roktavor, the first two being Rantaro and Ranjiro Kiyama.
  • Ranzo's Zodiac Sign is a Gemini.
  • His Glide Roktavor's design is mainly Rantaro's design, except the stamina wings are colored orange, it has a red chip core, and his Roktavor chip has a little more orange on it.
  • Ranzo's shorts is similar to the one Ben Azuki was wearing, except Ranzo's is blue instead of violet.
