Anime, Manga, Video Games
Ryuga has tanish-peach skin with a golden dragon headwear. He has white hair with a red streak on it and he wears his coat as a cape. He wears a golden bey holder that is placed on his wrist for easy bey access to Lighting L-Drago. His eyes are normally ruthless and merciless and usually has an evil sneer on his face.
He is portrayed to be pure evil and shows no mercy to his allies or enemies, he loves to attack the beys of his enemies until the bey is crushed. He also enjoys terrorizing other beybladers and has a power-hungry personality. Although in episode 51 it is revealed that Ryuga's behaviour was caused by L-Drago's possession over him.(Ryuga turns into a dragon) Although when he has Meteo L-Drago he has much more control over himself; this may be because he has full control over Meteo or that he is hiding its true power. With L-Drago Destroy, he won all the time, until when he encountered Rago. Ryuga was knocked unconcious as he groaned. He had scratches all over his body, and L-Drago Destroy was destroyed. Eventually, Ryuga died because he passed on his star fragment to Kenta, which helped Flame Sagittario evolve into Flash Sagittario.
He owns the mystical Lightning L-Drago 100HF, referred to as the "Forbidden Bey" (禁断のベイ, Kindan no Bei). He is Gingka's ultimate rival. Coincidentally, he keeps his beyblade on his arm with a gauntlet shaped like a dragon from the Asian legends. He is part of the Dark Nebula organization.
Synopsis (Anime Version)
When Ryūga first appeared in the anime, he is seen inside a capsule in a coma.
In episode 12, Gingka and Pegasus' presence in the area allowed him to wake up. In episode 13, Gingka challenged him to a bey battle when he confronted him. They fought on the stadium often used by the Dark Nebula, and with his insulting and taunting comments to the protagonist, Gingka was easily distracted and furious. This caused the event in where he was able to restore Ryūga's power. With his energy back to 100%, he won the battle effortlessly with his final attack from L-Drago, leaving Gingka in shock that he lost to him and Pegasus in scratches. In episode 14, he was shown training against Dark Nebula bladers, who owned all the diffrent types of Beyblades, Attack, Defense, Stamina, and Balance. In the Battle Bladers Finals, Pegasus turned into dust when it sacrificed itself to defeat Lightning L Drago.
In Season 2 of Metal Fusion (Metal Fight Explosion in Japan), which is not yet aired in english, Ryuga owns Meteo L-Drago LW105LF, and Gingka owns Galaxy Pegasus W105R2F. Ryuga and His Meteo L Drago LW105LF fight Gingka and his Galaxy Pegasis W105R2F.Even though he was dominating the battle, Ryuga Forfeited the match saying that if he unleashes Meteo L Drago's True power,it can destroy any beyblade and gives Gingka more time to improve.The only person who is stronger than Ryūga when he is not showing the true
power of Meteo L-Drago is Damian. If Ryūga unleashed the real power of Meteo L-Drago, he could beat anyone.Later in the anime,Ryuga helped Team Gan-Gan Galaxy by defeating Jack and his Killer Beafowl UW145EWD,Which put Him on the good side.He even helps Gingka and Co. at Hades Inc. by stopping the power of Spiral Force produced By Basalt Horogium 145WD by Unleashing the power of Meteo L Drago.This saw his Last appearance in Season 2.
