This is an article about the anime character. For the manga counterpart of the same name, see Daigo Kurogami (manga).
Daigo has black eyes and spiky black hair with a red bandana to hold it up. He is usually seen wearing a black jacket with purple stripes, and an orange t-shirt underneath. Daigo wears a variety of accessories with skull designs, including two beaded chains with skulls on them, a skull necklace and a skull belt. These are all references to his Bey, Doomscizor, which is based on the Grim Reaper.
He is usually seen with a frown, although he smiles a bit more later on.
Daigo has a dark personality, suiting his appearance. He usually keeps a cool, calm, and collected demeanor, and tends to not show his emotions a lot. While he is shown to be confident in his battles, he remains open-minded about some opponents and competitors, being able to see hidden potential in them and not underestimating them should he end up facing them. Along with Shu, he usually acts as a voice of reason for Valt and the others.
Despite usually being cold and distant, Daigo revealed a much softer side to him in episode 5, when it is revealed that his younger brother is in a hospital. Upon joining the Beyblade Club, he becomes friendlier and much more expressive.
Daigo has also been shown to be very observant, such as when he picked up on Valt's concern over Shu's shoulder injury and when he realized that Ken was upset over having to move away.
Whenever Daigo does something wrong or makes a mistake, he will soon come to regret it, such as when he defeated Yugo by using an illegal move for his launch. In the event of anything like this occurring, he'll do whatever it takes to make things right.
Daigo was first introduced in Let's Go! Valtryek!!, where he watched Valt Aoi's debut tournament battle against Rantaro Kiyama. Despite Valt's questionable performance, Daigo remained confident that there was more to Valt than meets the eye.
When the battle concluded in Blast-Off! Rush Launch!!, Daigo asserted that he will beat Valt in the next round of the tournament, even in an Attack-type showdown. He then had his second round battle against Melos Nekota, where he won the match within five seconds due to a Burst Finish.
