Billy (ノブオ Nobou) is a minor character that only appears in the first and eighteenth episodes of Beyblade. He is best known for being the first person to battle Tyson Granger on-screen in the anime series.
Billy is waiting with his two friends for his rival, Tyson Granger to show up for their Beybattle. Although the latter already had another battle planned, he forgot that he promised a battle with Billy. Billy drags Tyson to a park to finally conduct it.
Billy uses his Metal Driger against Tyson's Dragoon Grip Attacker. After multiple clashes, Tyson's Blade hits Billy's Blade against a Beystadium wall and is was thrown out of the arena. Disappointed with another loss against Tyson, he gave Billy advice on becoming stronger. Although Billy suggested a best 2/3 match, Tyson had to leave for his battle with Andrew, running late as it was 4:10 PM.
After the Asian Qualifiers, Billy is seen being defeated by Andrew in battle, when they instantly reunite with Tyson. As they discuss the upcoming tournament for the Bladebreakers, they head over to the Beypark to check out the upcoming bladers. This leads to the three of them, along with Kenny and Max, helping out a young boy train and fix his blade to beat a bully.
While he does not have a Bit-Beast, his Beyblade is Death Driger.
