Meguru Bachira is a Z team player. He has black hair and yellow eyes. He comes from Chiba prefecture, is a bizarre and extravagant person, and has a habit of humming when he speaks. He has a friendly personality but when he plays, he becomes ruthless. He has always loved football since he was a child, but his passion was not fully shared by his peers, so much so that he was made fun of as being considered a strange child.
To compensate for his loneliness, he has therefore created an imaginary friend whom he calls “Monster”. One of his favorite footballers is Zico. A quick player, he is an excellent assist man, and in offensive action, he makes excellent use of his sophisticated dribble.
In the high school leagues, he was unable to emerge as he was unable to fit into the playing patterns of his teammates, but not for lack of talent: on the contrary, Bachira’s football has always been at a higher level than that of his peers who therefore couldn’t keep up with his pace. He immediately becomes friends with Isagi, but when they play in different teams in the second phase of the selections, he will become a dangerous rival: playing against Isagi, he “abandons” the Monster, having now found in Isagi a worthy teammate with whom to share his love for football.

Kunigami has a very moral personality. He can take his football career, training, and lifestyle very seriously, but he also knows when to relax and enjoy life. He is considered calm but passionate when it comes to football and can be very rational and cautious at times, but can also be as stubborn as Raichi, whom he often clashes with.
Kunigami won’t let troublemakers and people playing injustice get the better of him when he’s around; he almost looks like a big brother. Although serious most of the time, he can be very grateful and a little embarrassed when others praise him. Meeting Ryusei Shidou impacted Kunigami’s way of thinking and doing things.
His moral and fair playstyle was matched with a more aggressive and instinctive playstyle and he quit Blue Lock, questioning Shidou’s words by quitting Blue Lock. Back at Blue Lock, Kunigami is noticeably cooler and more focused, has a whole new philosophy on how he plays football, and struggles to assert his dominance on the pitch. Kunigami barely says a word to Isagi and doesn’t talk to anyone during the shift.

On the surface, he seems to be a kind and helpful person; even at the beginning, he was practically the one to keep the group together, but in reality, he is sneaky and manipulative.

Jinpachi Ego is a trainer with a very egocentric philosophy, which makes him a very different trainer from others in Japan. According to him, an attacker is the master of the field and all the other players are there only to pass to the attacker. Despite all his differences with the point of view of most of his compatriots, Ego loves his country and wants him to win the World Cup by creating the best striker in the world.
Ego has shown several times that he is very intelligent. For example, he said to himself during the game against Japan U20 that apart from Yoichi Isagi’s goal, he planned everything else.
Another time, Anri Teieri asked him if he had foreseen Baro’s awakening, implying that he had foreseen other awakenings. He must also be someone very good at calculations because he was the one who made the first BL ranking by evaluating the potential of all high school players in the country.

Shoei Baro is the strongest player on team X. He was Isagi’s first rival at Blue Lock, nicknamed King. Since childhood, he has always shown an extraordinary talent for football. He has excellent dribbling and exceptional shooting power, with which he is able to score by kicking even from a distance of over 27 meters from the goal. Both by nature and technique, his game is extremely individualistic.
He undergoes hard training every day to keep fit. According to Isagi, he is one of the few Blue Lock players who can pose a threat to Rin as Baro’s instinct-based game is not easily predictable for him, forcing him to give up his strength (Rin being good at predicting and reacting to the moves of his challengers).
He is very attentive to order and hygiene. He considers himself the strongest, but even if his pride in him does not allow him to admit it, he sees in his rivals an incentive to improve; for example, by recognizing the superiority of Isagi and Nagi, he was able to awaken his latent potential.

Zantetsu Tsurugi is a footballer of team V. Tall with black hair, he is the best scorer of the team after Mikage and Nagi, with whom he shares a strong sense of fairness, but unlike the two, he was unable to show off like them with the progress of the tests. He has a great shot but is not very fast Unlike his two companions, he is more attentive and meticulous.

Nagi is a supernaturally talented footballer with incredible reflexes, good speed, and jumping abilities. Nevertheless, he doesn’t want to deal with football at first, like, for example, training, and belittles those who are weak and untalented in the game. He doesn’t even know much about the best footballers in the world, much to the chagrin of his rivals.
Initially, he is shown that he doesn’t care about playing football and becoming the best striker and would rather play video games or skip training. However, after playing against Team Z in the match, Nagi takes the initiative and tries to score goals himself.
This only happens because he notices his teammate Reo Mikage looking lost to the opposing team. Despite his initially indifferent appearance, Nagi struggles to improve his soccer skills following his team’s loss to Yoichi Isagi. This urge to improve follows him in later arcs, and it even tarnishes a friendship as a result.

Reo Mikage is a V-team footballer. He has purple eyes and hair and comes from a very wealthy family with assets of 705,800,000,000 yen. He has always been successful in all sports, but, having lived a life of privilege, he has always had everything served to him. This is why he wants to win the World Cup (the most coveted football trophy), precisely for the satisfaction of earning something with hard work, but his parents never shared his passion as they wanted him to go to college and inherit the family business.
As a footballer, he doesn’t excel at anything, but his individual skills are well-balanced. He is referred to as a “chameleon” because he is able to copy another footballer’s style of play just by looking at it. Having discovered Nagi’s talent, he is possessive towards him, having always played alongside him; also, for this reason, he is a bit envious that Nagi considers Isaki a better teammate. In the second phase of Blue Lock, he will have Nagi as an opponent and this will prompt Reo to rely more on his abilities alone.

Ikki Niko is a player from team Y. His eyes are almost always covered with hair. It is he who secretly leads his team, creating scoring chances. In the beginning, his style of play is identical to that of Isagi at the beginning of the manga: focusing only on the steps but without putting grit into it.
After losing to Isagi and team Z, he will decide to become more competitive, so much so that he becomes the best finalizer of their team, which earned him a promotion to the second phase. Although Ego sees him as one of the best forwards in the academy, he thinks he is more suited to the role of a central defender as Niko has a very good view of the pitch.
Keisuke & Junichi Wanima

Keisuke Wanima and Junichi Wanima are two twin brothers who play in team W. Keeping short distances between them, they are able to advance, passing the opposing defense thanks to their exchange of passes. The two have an excellent understanding, but they are not talented players. They tend to become vindictive, angry, and violent when their plans do not go the way they hoped; in fact, they start beating Kuon when he fails in the plan to make them win against Team Z, getting only a draw. They were schoolmates of Chigiri.

From an early age, Sae was cold, outspoken, and very serious. All he cared about was becoming the best striker in the world and only had time for things that would bring him closer to his goal. Sae can also be arrogant and condescending, looking down on others even though they are older than him and have more organizational authority.
He is selfish in his football game but has shown an ability to hold back and play his position without trying to upstage others unnecessarily. Sae is very proud as a football player and despises Japanese football and everyone involved in it.
Sae says he would much rather die or play in Europe with students than play in the J-League or the Japan national team. He is very confident in his abilities and wholeheartedly believes that no one in Japan is worthy of his abilities as a teammate. He doesn’t like the fact that he was born in Japan and says things like he was just born in the wrong country.

As a young boy, Rin was very innocent and in awe of his brother Sae. He wanted nothing more than to become strong and cool like his older brother. He started playing football just because his brother told him to and he followed his orders no questions asked. As they played soccer together, Rin listened to everything Sae said and adjusted accordingly.
When Sae left for Spain at Real Madrid, Rin found football more difficult without his brother but strove to become like him and replace him, doing whatever it took. A bit of Rin’s selfish style of play came through during this time. Rin is often portrayed as cold, brutal, and serious. He is also very selfish, as he always puts his goals ahead of everyone else and their motives.
His personality alone makes him the top candidate for Blue Lock’s supposed best forward. Rin has a lot of pride as a striker, which borders on arrogance, as he often describes football and other people’s way of thinking as ‘lukewarm’. All of Rin’s current mannerisms and behavior come from his brother. In an attempt to be like his brother, Rin copies his words and lives his mindset. All Rin does is allow him to beat his older brother and end the rivalry.

Aryu is known to say “stylish” a lot and wants everything to be “stylish”. He loves those with a good sense of fashion and is not shy about asking anyone how they maintain their beauty, as he showed when he asked Chigiri what hair treatment he used and admired. her hair up close.
Aryu also has a self-confessed “complex” about his name, believing it to be his only awkward point. He feels that his name is very old-fashioned and therefore not in line with his preferred aesthetic. Aryu was shown trying to “get over” this by striking stylish poses as his name would be dated.

Aoshi Tokimitsu is one of the strongest players in Blue Lock and, together with Rin and Arya in the second phase (in the 3v3 challenge), they proved to be an unstoppable trio. Although he easily gives in to nervousness, he is able to channel it to give his best during the game. He is fast and has incredible explosiveness when shooting. He has a servile character, and always speaks with a trembling voice. He knows practically every piece of information about the best players playing in the European leagues.
