Rashad Goodman (ラシャド・グッドマン, Rashado Guddoman) is the main antagonist of the anime/manga series, Beyblade Burst QuadDrive. Inspired by Valt Aoi, Rashad fought with his own Brave Valtryek Evolution' 2A, and later his own Salvage Valtryek Shot-7. He later becomes known as the High Prince, or the Supreme King (()(おう), Haō) in Japan, and replaces his Salvage Valtryek with his new Overdrive Quad Beyblade, Glory Regnar Over High Xtend+'.[2]

Appearance

Rashad is a tall teenager with tan skin, red eyes, long red hair with six flame-style bangs and light-red tips, a pink band tied around the hair, and mint-green markings on his face: a small upside-down triangle on each cheek and a Beyblade symbol on the forehead. His attire consists of an orange gi shirt, with the right sleeve being short and the left long, a red robe with only a left sleeve, yellow border along the flaps with loose ends, azure, green and pink sections on the back, and a maroon inside, a white sash belt, a cerulean undershirt with white markings under the collar, dark-blue compression pants, burgundy boots with orange sections and yellow tips, and a burgundy fingerless gauntlet with a yellow section and wrist cuff.

After winning the Dynamite Battle Tour, Rashad altered his attire: a white robe with an orange border along the flaps, a red right short sleeve and a yellow spiked pauldron on the left shoulder, a red gi shirt, a purple undershirt that retains the markings from his cerulean shirt, and maroon pants.

Beyblade Burst QuadDrive

Relationships

Valt Aoi

Rashad harbours a lot of admiration for Valt, even going as far as using a Valkyrie just like him. The respect is also mutual, with Valt even encouraging him to make his own Bey. Even during the Dark Prince vs High Prince battle, the two are still on good terms. However, Rashad has expressed disappointment in how Valt failed to care for his Salvage Valtryek due to it being destroyed, giving him an unwanted free victory.

Bel Daizora

Initially, the two were on neutral terms, but their opposite personalities rubbed each other the wrong way, resulting in a rivalry that ended in Destruction Belfyre's destruction. However, episode 36 suggests they are on good terms outside of battle.

Bashara Suiro

Bashara is shown to be very respectful toward Rashad, for Rashad pushed him to abandon Demise Spellcreeper for Roar Bahamut to get stronger, as well as helping Bashara become so strong he was able to place 2nd in the world youth tournament, losing to only Rashad himself.

Phenomeno Payne

Rashad and Phenomeno battled each other in the finals of the European Junior League, after losing to Rashad, he called Phenomeno's battle style boring. Since then Phenomeno holds a grudge against Rashad for saying those words.

Quotes

  • "This is not the victory I wanted." - Rashad after he breaks Salvage Valtryek.
  • "You are the one responsible for breaking Valkyrie!" - Rashad reprimanding Valt over how the latter caused Salvage Valtryek's destruction.
  • "Is this your way of Beyblade?"

Trivia

  • Rashad is the second character to own a recolored Valtryek, the first being Azure Eye.
  • Rashad is the third character to own a non-generic Beyblade where the avatar's initial is different from his first initial (Rashad and Valkyrie), first being Lain Valhalla and his First Uranus and second being Bashara Suiro and his Death Solomon.
  • Rashad is the second of four QuadDrive characters whose initials are the same as their Bey: Glory Regnar, the others being Bel Daizora, Ilya Mao, and Phenomeno Payne.
  • After Rashad obtained Glory Regnar, he can be seen as a direct foil to Bel:
    • Rashad gained a new title, the "High Prince", which contrasts with Bel's "Dark Prince" title.
    • Bel is mischievous and immature while Rashad is serious.
    • Glory Regnar is based on angel, while Belfyre is based on a demon.
  • Rashad is the first antagonist to own a motif that was originally owned by a main protagonist, being Valt Aoi's Valtryek.
  • Initial English dub information provided in official materials stated his dub title to be the same "Supreme King" title as the Japanese version. However, his finalized title in the dub is "High Prince" instead.
