Keshino (Japanese: 星(けし)野(の), Keshino), real name Ryuichi Hoshino (Japanese: 星野竜一 (ほしの・りゅいち) Hoshino Ryuichi),  is the secondary antagonist of the manga series, Cross Fight B-Daman: Legendary Phoenix. His B-Daman is Sonic=Dravise.


Keshino has large, spiky hair pointed upwards and secured by a black headband with the letter "B" on it. He has large eyes and ears, with a light skin tone. He dons an armor of sorts in black and white alongside shoulder-pads resembling large B-Dama.



Cross Fight B-Daman: Legendary Phoenix[]

Humiliated by his second defeat against Enzi Hikigane, B-Daman Hunter Ryuichi Hoshino is found by Kyōji Kurokami. Kyōji gives him Sonic=Dravise and bidded him to take his revenge as well as to become his henchman. Ryuichi agrees and dons a new identity as Keshino. As Keshino, he loyally works alongside Kyōji while also satisfying his fix for rare B-Daman.



  • Just like "Hoshino," Keshino (星野) literally means "star field".
  • His face, hair and headband are very similar to Crash B-Daman's Hitto Tamaga.
