Suoh Genji, also known as Suoh Goshuin (御朱印スオウ, Goshuin Suoh) in Japan is a character appearing in the anime/manga series, Beyblade Burst Turbo. He was a former member of the Beigoma Academy BeyClub, along with Fubuki Sumiye and a respected member as well. He fights with his Beyblade, Heat Salamander 12 Operate.
Suoh has pale skin, yellow eyes, and white hair that covers his right eye. He wears a black and red coat with yellow fur trim and a white suit beneath it. He also wears a lime green and purple tie. He almost always keeps his eyes closed. He also wears a black and yellow gauntlet on his right arm.
When his bangs move to the left, it reveals the right side of his face, and he has a dark magenta shade zigzag mark on his right cheek.
When his darker side takes over, his voice becomes deeper and throatier.
Normally, Suoh is rather soft-spoken and polite when speaking to others. After acquiring Heat Salamander however, Suoh reveals a fiercer, more arrogant side to him, going from a calm and collected demeanor to a more aggressive and ruthless one. He also becomes more open and honest about his feelings.
Suoh's biggest flaw is his pride. While it has helped him win many battles, it has also proven on multiple occasions to be his undoing, as shown when he refused to accept that Fubuki had become stronger than him.
Suoh is very adept at flower arranging, and occasionally incorporates floral themes in his speech.
Suoh was mostly a background character in the start, but later it was revealed that he actually battled Lui when he was a child.
He wanted to defeat Lui and he got a chance when the Luinor Cup was announced. Suoh did the launch test and got into the tournament.
After losing to Fubuki when he first obtained Emperor Forneus, Suoh decided to create his own Bey, Heat Salamander. He then took his new Bey out for a test run and easily beat both Ranjiro and Aiger.
Later he goes up against his friend and member of the Beigoma Academy Beyclub, Fubuki Sumiye. In this battle, Suoh wins the battle and goes up to face Aiger Akabane. In this battle, Aiger defeats Suoh, though the latter still remains arrogant. Eventually, he along with 8 other Bladers are selected to participate in the Battleship Cruise for the chance to battle against World Champion, Valt Aoi.

Suoh is always seen with Fubuki and is always with him during training which suggests that they are good friends. This is further evidenced when it is revealed that they have known each other since they were kids. Suoh also complements Fubuki during his practice. They are also both members of the Beigoma Academy BeyClub as well. However, Suoh later developed a resentment of Fubuki after the latter so easily defeated him with his new Emperor Forneus Bey. After obtaining his own Bey, Heat Salamander, Suoh starts to make his negative feelings toward Fubuki known. After their battle in which Fubuki loses, Suoh states that he did not gain anything from their battle. Even after Fubuki persistently tries to get Suoh back, Suoh rudely declines. However, Fubuki still considered Suoh a friend and stated that he would always support him.
When Suoh lost to Fubuki and was eliminated from the Battleship Cruise, he mentioned he hated losing to him most and made Fubuki promise to never lose to anybody else. Eventually, the two made amends towards the end of the season.
Suoh is revealed to know Lui from when he was young. After being defeated by Lui, he came to admire him and strive to defeat him. In the present day, the two appear to be on good terms with each other, and Lui even allows Suoh to watch and help him train for his upcoming Battle Royale with Aiger, Fubuki, and Ranjiro.
Suoh and Valt have had no onscreen interactions. However, Suoh is constantly striving to take Valt's spot as the World Champion, alongside his desire to surpass Lui. Suoh seems to harbor some respect for Valt's skills, describing both him and Lui as graceful even in defeat, a trait that he believes makes them true champions.

- "Brace yourself, Aiger Akabane. Salamander can be a frightening opponent. I'll show you!" - revealing his bad side for the first time.

- "I have to admit I hate losing to you more than anyone else, so you can't lose from here on out." - to Fubuki after being eliminated from the Battleship Cruise

- "I want to test how many seconds it takes me to defeat the fallen champ." -challenging Aiger to a match after the latter lost to Hyde
- "Just how far do you intend to go?" -after witnessing Aiger's corrupted resonance
- "Take Valt Aoi, for example, and Lui Shirosagi as well. Even in defeat, they are both beautiful to watch. That is the sign of a true champion. Aiger's defeat was a disgrace. There was no beauty at all. I will carry out beautiful battles until the end. I am nothing like that wretch."
- "In his search for power, Aiger has set foot into a realm that no Blader should tread." -warning Fubuki about Aiger's dark resonance.
- "Guess I lost that one, you've truly have grown stronger, Today's battle was a beautiful reminder of that." - to Toko Aoi in Beyblade Burst Turbo - Episode 42 after winning the battle royale.
