—Tala


Tala (ユーリ・イヴァーノフ Yuriy Ivanov) is a character in the Original Series, consisting of Beyblade and Beyblade: G-Revolution. He is the captain of the Blitzkrieg Boys. His Bit-Beast and Beyblade is Wolborg.

Appearance

Tala is a young man of average height and a lean build. He is depicted with fiery red hair with two strands hanging lose from a widow's peak and icy blue eyes. His skin color is very pale to connect him with a snowy climate, as he hails from Russia.

His clothes have the same colors of the Russian flag.

Personality

Tala had been trained from a young age to be a Beyblader, even so far as being genetically enhanced to ensure victory. Overall he has a very sarcastic and fiery personality, and is quite easy to anger. He is also shown to be highly intelligent and intuitive, as he figured out Barthez' plan and how he was connected to Boris early on. Tala has also been shown to be quite prideful of his abilities as he tends to underestimate his opponents (such as Kenny and Daichi) but also shows a clear insecurity of his own abilities as well based on his jealousy of Kai. In the first season of the anime, Tala becomes very angry due to jealousy of Boris' clear favoritism of Kai over himself.

Despite Tala's displays of sarcasm and overall antagonistic attitude towards other he is actually very caring of his fellow beybladers in G-Revolution. He expresses a genuine happiness of bumping into Tyson in the woods while Tyson and Co. searched for Hiro, as well as showing an extreme drive to protect other beybladers from Boris, claiming he won't let Boris ruin the hopes and dreams of anyone else. While Kai and Tala seemed to have a distant and indifferent relationship, Tala sheds tears for Kai after he collapses in the hallway after his fight with Brooklyn, showing that Tala is actually very kind and selfless.

Manga

In the manga, he is considerably more vicious, destroying many beyblades for Boris and treating beyblade like it is war.

Plot

Tala in Beyblade 2000

Tala first appeared with Ian when the Bladebreakers attempted to enter Boris' abbey to find Kai, knowing that Balkov would attempt to recruit Kai, using Black Dranzer.

In the Demolition Boys' first battle in the World Championships, Tala beats the All Starz in seconds. His victory is overshadowed, however, when Kai defects to the Demolition Boys after Boris offers him Black Dranzer. Kai beats all four members of the All Starz at once, and takes their bit beasts. Tala doesn't like Kai in the Demolition Boys team, as Kai gets more attention from Boris and successfully beats 3 members of the White Tigers by himself without Tala and the remaining Demolition Boys.

When Kai returns to the Bladebreakers, Tala, Ian, Spencer and Bryan destroy Black Dranzer and add the stolen bit beasts to their own bit beasts. Before the match, the group ambushes the Bladebreaker's bus, as Bryan and Spencer defeat Max and take Draciel.

At the World Championship in the final match, Tala faces Tyson. Tyson wins the first round despite Tala using Draciel and Dranzer's power. In the second round Tala transports himself and Tyson to an other dimension inside a giant iceberg. Combining all the bit beasts BIOVOLT captured, Tala easily beats Tyson. In the final round Tyson beats him and Tala shakes hands with Tyson after the match, ending Boris and Voltaire's ambition for World Domination.

After the World Championships, Tala and the Demolition Boys leave Balkov and begin training in a base in Russia.

Despite this, due to this win, the Blitzkrieg Boys enter the finals with 4 wins and 1 loss. Before the BBA Revolution's match with the PPB All Starz, Tala asks Daichi to win because he wants to avenge his loss to Daichi in Rome.

Due to the BBA Revolution and F-Dynasty tieing for the 2nd spot in the finals, Tala along with the coach of each team agrees to the two teams facing each other to determine who faces the Blitzkrieg Boys in the finals. The BBA Revolution wins and makes it to the finals.

While Kai, Spencer and Bryan go to practice for Kai's battle with Tyson Tala faces Daichi. Daichi stalls for time while Kenny fixes Dragoon. Tala realizes this during the battle and attempts to end the battle before Kenny fixes Tyson's blade. However, Kenny is able to fix the blade and Daichi begins to attack Tala. The battle ends in a draw and Wolborg and Strata Dragoon are too damaged to have a rematch. Kai faces Tyson in a intense battle which ultimately Tyson wins giving the BBA Revolution the championship.

A while after Boris returns and forms BEGA. After Tala discovers this, he along with Spencer and Bryan return to end BEGA. Along the way, they reunite with Tyson and state their intention's. At BEGA's headquarters, the three beat members of the training squad however Bryan and Spencer face one of the top bladers in BEGA named Garland and lose. Tala faces Garland and loses so badly that he is injured and rushed to hospital. Before this, he inspires Tyson to face Boris and BEGA. Mr. Dickenson looks after Tala while he is in the hospital and while visiting him Tyson leaves Dranzer MS on Tala's side. Soon Kai,who also lost badly to a BEGA blader named Brooklyn, visits Tala and finds Dranzer MS and begins to practice to face Brooklyn. In Tyson's final battle with Brooklyn, Tala awakens and gives Tyson Wolborg's power. This is noticed by Max when Draciel's water attack turns to ice. Tala is last seen with Mr. Dickenson watching the friendly battle between Tyson and Brooklyn, when he shares a friendly smile with Kai.

Trivia

  • Tala has 2 routines when using Novae Rog, and even used them both in the same episode and in the same battle.
  • In manga, Tala was not only feared by the other Beybladers, but also by his teammates, this can be seen when he scolds Spencer and Ian in Russian after both of them were arguing each other to battle against Ray.
  • Tala's childhood backstory is originally planned to be one of the chapters in the manga. However, the editor forced the creator Takao Aoki to remove it due of general dark concept. Even though not in manga, it was novelized in Aoki's official website.
