Tyson Granger, known in Japan as Takao Kinomiya (木ノ宮 タカオ, Kinomiya Takao?), is the main character of the anime and manga series of Beyblade. In the Japanese version of G-Revolution Tyson (Takao)'s nickname was "The Champ". Tyson was voiced by Motoko Kumai in the Japanese version, and is voiced by Marlowe Gardiner-Heslin in the English version. Tyson is very outgoing, outspoken and cheerful, though prone to a short temper, emotional outbursts and overconfidence. By the end of the series he is a more introverted character and more serious about his responsibility as the Beyblade world champion. His closest friend and confidant throughout the series is Kenny, whom he goes to school with in V-Force, and who battles alongside him as his beyblading partner in G-Revolution. By the end of the series Tyson develops a unique relationship with Kai, who also becomes one of his close friends.
