Dan JD is the main protagonist of Basquash, a basketball-loving boy who despises Big Foots after one accidentally crippled his little sister. His goal is to send his sister to the moon for advanced treatment for her paralyzed legs.
In the daytime, Dan undergoes the alias, "Dunk Mask, to demoralize the sport by smashing all the TVs in the city, and collecting the cash from junk exchange. Upon Miyuki's return and gaining his own Big Foot, Dan invades an official BFB game and attempts to rampage further on even stakes but oppositely, ends up skyrocketing its popularity even awed the crowd with his highly skilled demonstration.
As a result of the widespread destruction, Dan is imprisoned for a year and instantly became a living legend who inspired the sport, Big Foot Streetball later renamed as the series name. Now charged with massive debt for the stadium destruction, Dan's goal as a 'basquasher' (a term for Basquash players that he coined) has extended not just for his sister, but to pay it all off.
Dan is able to throw a "thunderbolt ball", a basketball that shines with a 'radiant light that traced the shape of the heavens' creation'. For this, he is believed to be the Legend, the one destined to save Earthdash and Mooneyes, but later revealed that it's not just Dan, everyone who is a 'basquasher' is a part of the Legend. Using their combined skills and their own 'thunderbolt balls', the 'basquashers' reactivate the ultimate in Mooneyes, by throwing a 'final dunk', bumping Mooneyes back into orbit, effectively saving Earthdash and Mooneyes, as they were previously in a collision course with each other.
At the series' epilogue, Dan is last seen playing basketball with Iceman, affirming that he will continue to play, and that he has not lost any passion in basketball, and possibly Basquash, either.
