'Raichi Kuronashi' (黒無来智, Kuronashi Raichi?) is one of the main characters of the manga BakuTech! Bakugan, by CoroCoro Comic. He is the owner and partner of Destroy Munikis.

He is also Harubaru Hinode's friend. He later teamed up with Harubaru, Koh Grif and Sho Grif to form Team Dragaon.


Raichi is a blonde teenager with red eyes. He wears a beanie hat, black hoodie, shorts and sneakers; all of which has pink and blue accents.

Two years later in the series, Raichi has a new appearance, in which he's now taller & wears a white tee shirt & his hat now has a white band instead of purple. During his final battle with Harubaru, Raichi's appearance changes again. He now wears a white sweatshirt with white stripes underneath a purple & white shirt, purple pants, a pair of purple fingerless gloves, & his beanie is now purple with orange stripes. This outfit Raichi wears is reminiscent of the outfit Nivil wears.


BakuTech! Bakugan

A friendly rival of Harubaru. He uses the Darkus attribute and his Guardian Bakugan Destroy Munikis (which later evolved into Zero Munikis and then to Hollow Munikis) along with his high techniques and efficient strategies. Despite that Harubaru is often reckless, Raichi is a cool character who sees the good in him.

Together with the enthusiastic Harubaru, they will stop the BakuThieves from stealing Bakugan.

His shooting skill is "BakuTech Zero Gravity Spin."

His first person pronoun is "Boku" and his second person pronoun is "Kimi" or "Omae." [1]


Raichi makes his debut in the first episode where Harubaru challenged him to a Brawl inside the Bakugan Dojo. He lost that Brawl after his Destroy Munikis was Critical K.O.'d by Harubaru's Flare Dragaon. Raichi vowed to have a rematch with Harubaru next time.

Raichi appears again in the following episode testing Harubaru to try to knock out his Mica Laurel, Harubaru fails a couple of times, but manages to knock his Mica Laurel off the Gate Card.
