After seceding from the Dark nebula, Yu pursues his true love for Beyblade by changing his outlook and attitude, much like Tsubasa and Kyouya's change. Yu is now a happy go lucky Beyblader with a love for a good battle, and can become frustrated when he denied one or is involved in a boring Beybattle.


Yu grew up to become a powerful Beyblader with his Flame Libra with incredible stamina and endurance. He was spotted by the Dark Nebula who promised him great power and the chance to battle powerful, he agreed and was partnered with another named Tsubasa Otori.
