January 14, 2002 12:00 am
Tyson still can’t get over losing his town’s Beyblade Tournament to the mysterious Mister X. Kenny and Dizzi try to come up with some answers but discover a greater mystery. On the same day as Tyson’s loss, Max and Ray were also visited by similar shadowy figures that defeated them as well. While Tyson does his best to avoid his school chores, Kenny makes a startling discovery about Mister X’s Beyblade. Unfortunately Tyson, unaware of this new information, unexpectedly runs into Mister X at the park and challenges him to a rematch!
January 21, 2002 12:00 am
Kenny learns that the cloaked blader named Ozuma, who defeated Tyson in an informal, Supermarket-sponsored beybattle, was using an invisible Bit-Beast. Tyson demands a rematch against the strange opponent – and loses for a second time when Dragoon mysteriously fails to appear on command. Effects from the battle damaged Dizzi, whom Kenny endeavors to repair. Meanwhile, a group of shady Men in Black have been busy monitoring Tyson and Ozuma the entire time. At school, tensions between Tyson and Hilary continue to rise. Tyson’s turmoil over Dragoon’s behavior sets him on an increased training regimen. Kenny fixes Dizzi, and encounters Hilary on route to his meeting with Tyson to work on the Dragoon problem. Before he can get there however, two Men in Black confront Kenny and Hilary.
January 28, 2002 12:00 am
Tyson heads to the park to meet Kenny, who has a plan to get Dragoon back “on line”. But when Kenny and Hilary are kidnapped, Tyson is forced to jump through a series of hoops set out by their captors, which test his speed and determination. After successfully completing their orders, Tyson finds himself on a ship equipped with a fancy computer system – and his friends, locked in a glass-walled cage. But what do the kidnappers want – and how far will they go to get it? When the mysterious voice challenges Tyson to a battle he accepts – even though the stakes are the highest ones he’s faced yet – the lives of his friends! When Tyson realizes that his opponent is “just” a robot, he’s stoked – this is going to be a piece of cake. But this isn’t just any robot… and these aren’t just any run-of-the-mill Beybladers. The computer can read his every move before he makes it, and Tyson’s only chance is to bring Dragoon back to the battle field. Will he be able to do it in time to save his friends?
February 4, 2002 12:00 am
Tyson and Kenny are safe on dry land once again but are totally baffled trying to figure out why Kenny and Hilary were kidnapped by two mystery men. The best that they can deduce is that two factions are out to steal the Bit Beasts of all the members of the BladeBreakers. This leads them to wonder about Kai who supposedly has retired. Back at Kai's prep school a curious student named Wyatt is all over Kai trying to get him to come out of retirement and show him a few pointers on how to blade. Kai ignores him until a bully (Dunga) entices Wyatt into a battle. Wyatt is sure he can win, especially since he's using Kai's Dranzer which he stole from Kai's hideaway. In no time, Dunga wins, but Kai decides to fight the rematch. The fight is fierce and surprisingly ends in a draw. But after the battle, Kai decides to come out of his self-imposed retirement because he believes he has at last found a worthy opponent.
February 11, 2002 12:00 am
His name is Gideon, the evil leader, and Doctor B, the head of the scientists. Inside Gideon’s training center two of his henchmen discover a talented Blader named Snakey and offer to equip his Blade with the Magtram. The Magtram is a device that creates a magnetic field around the user’s Beyblade and gives an unfair advantage to anyone using it. Kenny and Hilary are on the look out for their mysterious captors when Tyson shows up with a new scheme to find Ozuma. Out of nowhere, Snakey shows up and challenges Tyson to a match. Little does Tyson know that Snakey is being used as bait so that Gideon can collect data on Dragoon. Tyson accepts the challenge but it looks like he might lose until Kai appears and offers some much-needed support. Tyson releases Dragoon and after an intense battle he knocks Snakey’s Blade out of the stadium and wins the match. Unfortunately Gideon’s henchmen, hiding in the bushes, record the whole event and send it back to Gideon’s lair. Meanwhile Ozuma and Dunga watch all the action from afar and prepare for their own battles with Tyson and Dragoon!”
February 18, 2002 12:00 am
Tyson and Kenny try to determine what the mystery material was inside Snakey's Beyblade that made it so magnetic. Kai is tight-lipped after rejoining his friends following his draw against Dunga. Kai crashes at Tyson's place, but departs quickly after old grievances resurface, and Hilary suspects him of being a spy. Tyson and Kenny e-mail Max's Mom, asking for help with their analysis of the mystery metal, while Hilary suggests visiting another person who could help them - Mr. Dickenson. Upon visiting him at his office, they meet a new team called the Psykicks, led by the sinister Doctor B. This shady squad wants to challenge the Bladebreakers for the Championship title, but to become eligible they must defeat the BBA Trainee Team, which they do. Unbeknownst to the kids and Mr. Dickenson however, it's Gideon who's behind this scheme to reunite the Bladebreakers. He wants all four members together in the same place so he can proceed with his yet-unknown plan involving their Bit Beasts. Kai rejoins Tyson, and Mr. Dickenson puts out a call to Max and Ray. The Blade Breakers reunion is imminent.
February 25, 2002 12:00 am
At long last, Max and Ray rejoin their friends and the Bladebreakers are back together again! Just in time to meet their opponents, Team Psykick. With one week to train, the guys have victory on their brains – especially after Max and Kenny reveal the new technology developed by Max’s mom. The MG Core produces a magnetic field similar to the one in the Magtram technology, giving the user optimal control over their Beyblade and increasing the Beyblades power ten fold. However, it’s not an easy thing to control, and the guys have a rough start. Hilary and Kenny come up with a “back to the basics” practice schedule… and after Tyson gets over the insult of re-learning basic turns and moves, they go into training. The Bladebreakers are ready to take on Team Psykick and board the bus to the battle… but could this strange bus driver spell more trouble for our heroes?
March 4, 2002 12:00 am
The Bladebreakers were on route to take on Team Psykick in a tournament when the Driver filled the bus with sleeping gas. While unconscious, they were quickly whisked away to a deserted island where Doctor B, Gideon’s minion, was assigned to steal the Bit Beasts from all four team members with a Bit-Beast Capturing System. The system would wait until a bit beast was released, and then would try to entangle it in an energy field. The first battle was between Max and a 'colorful' character named Chameleon. It looked bad for Max, but in the end, he called out Draciel, which not only won the battle, but also destroyed the Bit Beast Capturing System in its wake. Now all our heroes have to do is escape the island… but this seems impossible!!
March 11, 2002 12:00 am
The Bladebreakers are trapped on a mysterious island and not sure how to get off, so they decide to split up. Hilary, Kai and Kenny head for the lighthouse where they hope to find a way to communicate with the outside world and call for help, while Tyson, Ray and Max accidentally find themselves at the site of their next battle. Kai’s gang faces difficult obstacles when their mysterious captor tries to dissuade them from reaching the lighthouse, and they barely escape in one piece. On the other side of the island, Tyson, Ray and Max are lead into a cave and right into a trap. They are challenged by Bat, a blader with the ability to see in the dark. Because Tyson’s ankle is sprained, Ray steps up to the plate. He almost loses Driger to his opponent… but Tyson’s quick thinking helps him win. By focusing on what he can hear instead of what he can’t see, Ray manages to target Bat’s Batranzer Beyblade and defeat him. Meanwhile, just as it looks like Hilary and gang have found a way to the lighthouse, a new blader challenges Kai to a battle…
March 18, 2002 12:00 am
Our heroes are still trapped on a deserted island and are puppets of the evil Doctor B who's intent is to steal the Bladebreakers Bit Beasts. But he does make a deal with the kids that if each member of the Bladebreakers can defeat a member of Team Psykick, he'll release them. Only two haven't fought yet- Tyson and Kai. The first battle is between Kai and Figel that Kai wins handily. After the battle, Kenny, Kai and Hilary resume their quest to the lighthouse to get a clear satellite signal to get help from the outside. Finally they make contact, but not before they return to find Tyson in battle against another member of Team Psykick, Daryl. This battle won't be so easy to win, as Tyson has a swollen ankle from a previous accident. But Tyson is determined to take the victory and free everyone from the island. In the end, Tyson pulls off a win and Doctor B's laboratory is blown to bits by his computers overloading on him! After the dust settles, Mr. Dickenson and Grandpa arrive in a helicopter to rescue the kids!
March 25, 2002 12:00 am
Tyson recuperates in the hospital after being rescued from the island where he fought Team Psykick. Away from school, Tyson discovers he really likes hospital life until Hilary shows up with all his homework assignments. Meanwhile Gideon, frustrated with his attempts to capture the BladeBreakers Bit Beasts, hatches a sinister new plan. He demands that Doctor B and his team create powerful Cyber Bit Beasts using the data they have gathered on the Blade Breakers. The only problem is their data is incomplete. They need to analyze Kai’s BeyBlade Dranzer to complete their plan. Across town the Saint Shields gather and plot their own strategy to get the BladeBreakers Bit Beasts. It all comes to a head when Dunga challenges Kai to a surprise battle while Gideon’s henchmen record the whole event.. Kai and Dunga’s battle ends in a draw but not before Doctor B and his team acquires the necessary data to create the Cyber Bit Beasts!
April 1, 2002 12:00 am
Joseph of the Saint Shields infiltrates the Psykicks’ laboratory and discovers their latest, sinister plan. Gideon and Doctor B are using the data they collected on the Blade Breakers to create Cyber Bit-Beasts based on the ones our heroes use. But the Doctor’s first test ends in disaster; the Cyber Bit Beasts aren't quite ready yet. As for the BladeBreakers, they learn that the group who've been using invisible Bit Beasts against them - the Saint Shields - are all in the vicinity. With the Psykick’s still after them as well, the BladeBreakers hold a full-on practice to prepare themselves for all potential threats. During their session, Max is lured away by Mariam, who initiates a battle with him in the woods. When Ray comes looking for Max, he ends up encountering Joseph. Together, the four combatants have a rare, two-on-two beybattle that’s secretly being observed by the other Saint Shields, who are testing them for some unknown reason. The two-on-two match ends with Max and Ray losing decisively as a result of Mariam and Joseph’s heightened team play.
April 8, 2002 12:00 am
Our heroes have been confronted by Joseph and Mariam and just as Tyson runs up, Ozuma, the Saint Shields leader, challenges Tyson to a battle. As it rages on, Tyson is forced to call out his Victory Tornado Attack in order to win. After the fight, Ozuma flippantly tells Tyson he needs to 'improve his Bit Beast Technique' which stumps Tyson to no end, especially after winning!! Meanwhile, Gideon oversees Doctor B who unveils the first ever Cyber Bit Beast which is the most powerful Beast in the world. This cloned power from the Sacred Bit Beasts has been compressed into one blade. But first it has to be tested and Gerry, one of the best Bladers Team Psykick has to offer, is chosen. His mission is to enter a local tournament and draw out the Cyber Beast in battle to see how it handles. Oddly enough, the BladeBreakers show up at the same tournament just as Gerry calls out his Bit Beast. This is when things go horribly wrong as the Beast goes totally out of control and self destructs leaving the BladeBreakers to wonder what Team Psykick are up to!!
April 15, 2002 12:00 am
Gerry of Team Psychic’s lack of control led to an explosive conclusion when his Cyber Bit Beast blew up. The Blade Breakers were at a loss as to how that could happen so Kenny consulted his trusty laptop Dizzi and made a startling revelation. Someone had managed to make copies of the Blade Breakers Bit Beasts! This discovery leads the gang to believe that new powerful Bit Beasts are being developed and they decide to get themselves in shape for battle. Ozuma and his gang, the Saint Shields, are still eager to test the power of the Blade Breakers’ Bit Beasts as well, so they head to the beach where Tyson and the others are training. Meanwhile Doctor B is busy experimenting with various versions of a Cyber Bit Beast with mixed results. After many failures he finally succeeds and vows to test the strength of his new creation against the Blade Breakers’ Bit Beasts. Back at the beach, Ray faces off against Joseph of the Saint Shields in an intense battle. Just when it looks like Ray’s Bit Beast Driger is going down, he manages to pull off some impressive moves and win the match. Everyone is ecstatic, especially Hilary because she’s finally able to see the Bit Beasts. The team agrees that their intense training paid off but they know they will have to face even bigger battles in the future!
April 22, 2002 12:00 am
Kai’s classmate Wyatt returns and begs Kai to help him train to become a first-class Beyblader. Remembering the time back at school that Wyatt betrayed Kai by stealing Dranzer and using it in battle, Kai turns him down. Hurt, Wyatt vows to return and battle Kai one day. That day may be sooner than anyone thinks... for the mysterious Dr. B and his team of scientists have finally re-developed the Cyber Bit Beast and are looking for a blader with the skill to handle it. Dr. B approaches Wyatt with an offer to join Team Psykick, and Wyatt jumps at the chance. When his training is complete, Wyatt is sent to battle none other than Kai, with the hopes of capturing his bit beast. Despite warnings from Ozuma, Tyson and the gang are ready for a fight... but Dunga jumps in and takes one for the “team”, allowing the new technology to be tested on him instead. Amazingly, the new bit beast wins over Dunga’s Vortex Ape, but leaves Wyatt weak from the fight. The scientists are pleased with the bit beast’s performance, but drop Wyatt from the team.
April 29, 2002 12:00 am
After Dunga and Wyatt battle, Wyatt realizes he doesn't possess the skill necessary to control his Cyber Bit Beast. This frustrates Gideon, so he commands Doctor B to seek out a suitable candidate for the job. Meanwhile, Tyson is back home practicing his blading and quickly tires of it. The rest of the BladeBreakers, including Hilary, keep harping on him to continue until he gets it right. But Tyson has had enough and quits! It seems the BladeBreakers are finished! Then, Hilary comes up with an idea! She tells the guys to take a day off and invites them to an afternoon barbecue with Grandpa playing the part of the Chef. At first Tyson wants nothing to do with it, but finally he relents and joins in. After lunch, the kids relax by the river while Grandpa fishes. Suddenly he hooks a big one and gets dragged in the water! The kids run to the rescue, however, a group of four new teenagers appear out of nowhere and rescue Gramps. After a brief conversation, our heroes realize these new kids are also bladers, so Tyson challenges their leader, Kane, to a battle. After a fierce fight, it ends in a tie and the new kids leave. Tyson thinks he made a new friend, but as it turns out, Kane is the leader of the new Team Psykick recruited by Gideon!!
May 6, 2002 12:00 am
Kane, Goki, Jim, and Salima arrive at Doctor B's lab to begin battle tests for Gideon. Jim goes first after being given his new Beyblade, Cyber Draciel. He battles against a lopsided number of automated Beybades, including one behemoth the size of a football. But with Cyber Draciel in tow, victory is decisive. It's obvious however, that the Cyber Bit-Beast's power is having a corrupting influence on Jim. At Mr. Dickenson's office, the BladeBreakers are blackmailed into a future battle against the Psykick’s when Doctor B threatens an all-out assault on the city by the Cyber Bit-Beasts. When Tyson hears that his new friend Kane has joined the Psykick’s, he refuses to believe it without concrete proof. Together with Kenny, Hilary, Ray and Max, Tyson sneaks into Doctor B's lab. There, his worst fears are confirmed. Kane has indeed been recruited by the sinister Psykick’s, who are after the BladeBreakers' Bit-Beasts. Having noticed the negative effect of the Cyber Bit-Beasts on their users, Kane, Goki and Salima are wary about using them. Kane refuses Doctor B's offer to have his own Cyber Bit-Beast, insisting that his upcoming battle with Tyson be on even terms. As for the BladeBreakers, they nearly get apprehended when they're spotted in the lab, but Kai's timely arrival saves their skins.
May 13, 2002 12:00 am
After seeing the power of the Cyber Bit Beasts in Team Psykick’s BeyBlades, Tyson vows to do whatever it takes to beat them. Even if that means breaking the rules and modifying his own BeyBlade. Ray protests and demands that the BladeBreakers play fair even if the odds are against them. In a quiet moment down by the river he runs into Salima of Team Psykick and discovers she feels the same way as he does. Salima tries to convince Ray to get the BladeBreakers to forfeit their upcoming match and even offers to reveal the secrets of the Cyber Bit Beasts. Salima agrees to meet with Ray the next day with the Cyber BeyBlade but when she doesn’t show up Ray changes his mind and decides to join his team and win the match at any cost!
May 20, 2002 12:00 am
Tyson is so determined to beat the Psykick’s in an upcoming battle that he's ordered Kenny to modify his Dragoon beyond legal specifications. But because his blade now has too much offensive power, Tyson is unable to control it and he becomes totally frustrated with himself and his blade. The more he tries controlling it, the worse he becomes. His friends try to tell him 'cheating' isn't the way to win, yet Tyson ignores them and being pigheaded as he is, he goes off to sulk about his dilemma. Meanwhile, the Psykick’s are with Doctor B who informs them that he just wants to do some last minute finishing touches on their Cyber Bit Beasts. Both Kane and Salima protest saying, they feel they are more important as players than any stupid Cyber Bit Beast is. But once they go into battle and feel the raw Cyber power, they are immediately hooked and want more. While this is going on, Tyson wants to get back to training just as Ozuma walks up. He has come to teach our hero a lesson that it's not about the blade, it's about the player and the lesson finally sinks in when Ozuma destroys Dragoon.
May 27, 2002 12:00 am
The Bladebreakers travel by helicopter to their re-match against the Psykick’s. During the flight, Hilary remembers how Psykick trapped her and Kenny on a cargo ship; Max ponders their recent training; Kai regrets the Psykick’ mistreatment of Wyatt;; Ray recalls the time Salima reached out to him; and Tyson remains bitter about Kane joining Psykick. When they arrive at the battle location - a five-story, monolithic building called 'The Battle Tower' - they're greeted by Gideon via video screen, who outlines the format. On each floor, one Psykick awaits a different Bladebreaker, and each match will be a one-match-only sudden death battle. When Mr. Dickenson objects to this format, a squad of 'Blade Bruiser' Meka-Shooters launches a hailstorm of beyblades. Our heroes revel in thwarting the threat - until they realize its only a ploy to weaken their blades before the real battles. More Blade Bruisers join the fray, but a surprise appearance by the Saint Shields helps our heroes escape the ground floor and ascend the Tower. On the second floor, they're confronted by Jim, who faces off against Max. Cyber Draciel overpowers its Bit-Beast progenitor, but Max's determination spurs a comeback and the Cyber-copy is defeated. Or so they think. Team Psykick has an ace up their sleeve; a Cyber Bit-Beast repairing machine that restores the fallen Cyber Draciel.
June 10, 2002 12:00 am
The first battle between Team Psykick and the Bladebreakers has begun! Max fights bravely against Jim and Cyber Draciel... and his teammates aren’t the only ones interested in the outcome of the battle. Dr. B and Gideon watch from the sidelines, and the Saint Shields are there to watch their backs. Max defeats Jim, but amazingly, Cyber Draciel is repaired! It seems Team Psykick has the ability to repair their cyber bit beasts immediately. Even though everyone warns him against it, Max goes back for another round. This time, he isn’t so lucky... the powerful Cyber Draciel takes everything out of him and he loses. Draciel is captured by Dr. B and placed in a holding tank – finally, they’ve got one of the four bit beasts! Max is despondent and Dunga isn’t helping. Furious with Max for taking the battle too “lightly”, he admonishes him for losing the bit beast. Tyson and the others come to Max’s side and vow to win Draciel back for him no matter what. Gideon leads them to the next battle stadium, where Ray is shocked to find Salima waiting for him...
June 17, 2002 12:00 am
A confused and heartbroken Ray must face Salima in a dangerous challenge of Drigers! Despite the threat of losing his bit-beast forever, Ray hesitates... baffled by the extreme change in Salima’s personality. It wasn’t long ago that she confided in Ray and told him of the troubling bit-beast experiments being conducted by the Psykick’s... and now... it looks like she’s in the same boat as Goki and Jim! Mind-Controlled by their own cyber-bit-beasts! But Ray can’t stand back for long... not after realizing his team is depending on him... and even in the face of team Psykick’s blatant cheating... Ray refuses to back down... he’s not just fighting for a win... he’s fighting to bring back the Salima he once knew!
June 24, 2002 12:00 am
Thanks to Ray’s spectacular victory over Salima, the Bladebreakers reach the fourth level of Gideon’s Battle Tower and meet their next opponent, Goki of the Psykick’s. As Kai steps forward to meet the challenge Gideon and Doctor B prepare several surprises for the team. Using the information gathered from the previous two beybattles, Doctor B has programmed Driger and Draciel’s attack patterns into Goki’s beyblade. Meanwhile, the Saint Shields continue to explore the Psykick’s headquarters in an attempt to find Max’s captured Draciel. But Dunga’s impatience sets off the alarms, alerting Gideon to their presence at last. After the first round ends in a tie, Kai reveals that he thinks he’s facing Wyatt in the match, and can’t bring himself to fight. Tyson warns Kai that Doctor B is taking advantage of his guilt to launch a psychic assault during the match. Kai is almost eliminated when Goki overplays his role as the “ghostly” Wyatt and gives Kai the key to breaking his psychic hold. Kai and Dranzer destroy Goki’s Cyber Dranzer in a spectacular counter-move. Thanks to his friends, Kai has finally laid his guilt to rest.
July 1, 2002 12:00 am
The final battle is at hand between the Pyskick’s and the Bladebreakers. The battle is to take place at Gideon's laboratory with Tyson battling against Kane and his Cyber Bit Beast Dragoon. The fight is fierce from the get-go but as it progresses, Tyson manages to get under Kane's skin by telling him the only way to win is by using one's skill, not relying on a manufactured Bit Beast to do your dirty work. Meanwhile, Ozuma and his gang have barged into the laboratory complex to help Tyson, however, because the building is so massive, they can't find the right room! They frantically split up and race to find their friends. Back in the battle, Tyson's words have hit a chord with Kane and he decides not to call out the Cyber Dragoon to fight for him. Instead, he wants to win it on his own. Gideon and Doctor B are incensed, but because Kane wants to win so badly, he accidentally triggers the Cyber Bit Beast to launch and now the battle has taken a turn for the worse as it grows in power... at least for Tyson!!
July 8, 2002 12:00 am
Tyson faces off against Kane of Team Psykick and soon realizes his opponent has an unnatural advantage. Thanks to Doctor B, Kane has a powerful Cyber Bit Beast inside of his Blade. This means that when Tyson summons Dragoon, Kane’s Cyber Bit Beast has the ability to copy Dragoon’s moves and even improve on them. It’s obvious from the get go that Kane’s Cyber Bit Beast’s powers are developing at an alarming rate and when it starts controlling his mind, he was droven completely insane. Although a good Blader in his own right, under the control of the Cyber Bit Beast Kane’s personality begins to change and when he’s confronted by Salima he snaps and totally succumbs to its power. In the heat of battle and with the odds against him, Tyson reluctantly tells Dragoon to give in to defeat but the loyal Bit Beast summons the strength to continue the fight. This inspires Tyson and he vows to defeat the demented Kane at any cost.
July 15, 2002 12:00 am
Kane's losing control of his Cyber Dragoon and his mind as his energy is being drained by his Bit Beast. Kane almost passes out from expending so much of his strength. As Cyber Dragoon grows, it looks more and more like Tyson is about to lose, when Kai tells him the only way to get rid of the phony Bit Beast is for Tyson to destroy it. Tyson musters up all his power and in one fell swoop, Dragoon destroys its doppelganger. However, as Cyber Dragoon is blown to oblivion, so is the building they are in and it starts collapsing all around them. Gideon and Doctor B are both killed in the collapse. Our heroes make a mad dash for the exits when, Max realizes his Draciel is still being held captive in the lab. Max races back inside followed closely by Tyson. Once inside the lab, they meet up with Ozuma and his gang who free Draciel for Max using their blades. Now it's a race to try and get out of the building safely!! Team Psykick was disbanded.
July 22, 2002 12:00 am
After the kids arrive in NYC, Max’s mother, Judy, takes them to the BBA research lab where she shows them an ancient rock, covered in mysterious writing. Judy reveals that not only is the rock believed to hold the secret of the Bit Beasts, but an organized crime syndicate is plotting to steal it. A test battle is fought, using a bit containing a piece of the rock but the power it produces is far too unstable. The blader who performed the test turns out to be Max’s school friend, Alan, and the two pals make plans to enter a Beyblade tournament scheduled for the next day. But that night, the rock is stolen. Tyson grabs a bike and sets off in hot pursuit, using a practice blade to blow out the getaway car’s tire. The thieves take off on foot and Max runs into them only to discover that his pal, Alan, is in on the plot.
July 29, 2002 12:00 am
A rock with special powers to capture your opponents Bit Beast has been stolen from the lab where Max's mom Judy works at. Turns out that one of Max's friends from his old neighborhood, Alan, is connected to the heist. Not only are the police involved, but the BladeBreakers want to get to bottom of it too! But before the case can be solved, Max is entered in a tournament in New York City and as luck would have it, his first opponent turns out to be Alan! Alan tells Max that if Max wins, he'll explain why he agreed to steal the rock with a bunch of shady thieves. The battle is heated and Max is determined to win. After one draw and several close calls, Max finally wins. In the end Alan explains that he was approached by some underworld characters who convinced him if he stole the rock they would give him a new, more powerful BeyBlade. But the new blade turns out to be a dud and Alan is left to explain why he did what he did to Max!
August 5, 2002 12:00 am
When the kids return to Japan accompanied by Judy, they are taken to an abandoned research facility where Mr. Dickenson had once worked on a similar rock with his old partner, Dr. Zagart. Like the one that was stolen from the BBA, this rock was covered in mysterious writing and possessed strange powers. Unfortunately, it too disappeared, along with Dr. Zagart who was never seen again. After a battle with Kenny and his new “Einstein” Beyblade, Tyson realizes he still has to learn how to control his new, ultra-powerful Beyblade, Dragoon V2. While practicing down by the river, he is challenged to a battle by Ozuma and the Saint Shields. Tyson accepts and manages to hold his own until the entire Saint Shields clan gangs up on him. It looks like all is lost until a mysterious stranger steps in to save the battle and the day. But the Saint Shields vow to return and fulfill their mission to capture and seal the four Bit-Beasts.
August 12, 2002 12:00 am
Mr. Dickenson and Max’s Mom show up at Tyson’s dojo empty-handed. Dr. Zagart and the mysterious rock have vanished without a trace. Knowing Dr. Zagart is the key to finding the missing rock, the Bladebreakers decide to launch their own search. One problem, they have no idea where to start looking. Meanwhile Dr. Zagart and Dr. K have designed a new powerful Blade using the rock, and they’ve chosen a Blader named Foxy to challenge our heroes. While Tyson is busy with Zeo, the boy he met the day before when he fought Ozuma, Foxy attacks. Never one to turn down a challenge Ray follows Foxy into the woods. Foxy’s rock powered Blade nearly destroys Ray’s Blade but Tyson shows up in the nick of time and coaches Ray to victory. The BladeBreakers congratulate Ray on his victory but the Saint Shields also witnessed the battle. Intrigued, Ozuma vows more than ever to get the Bladebreakers' four Bit-Beasts!
August 19, 2002 12:00 am
In the quiet after Foxy’s storm, the BladeBreakers try to figure out who or what was behind his attack, and how it all tied into the mysterious Rock. Meanwhile, Tyson reaches a breaking point, discouraged and upset by the constant attempts of fanatic groups trying to steal the sacred bit-beasts. His anxiety goes overboard when he coaxes Kenny to create a wacky training platform for the team to practice with. He takes his jaded attitude out on Zeo, who simply wants to spar with one of the greats. At the same time, The Saint Shields’ frustration level also grows, as Ozuma decides that the Bladebreakers are unworthy of possessing the sacred bit-beasts any longer. Tyson remembers the simple joys of Beyblading when he finally agrees to train with Zeo and coaches him so he can pass his Beyblading exam. The proud feeling that Tyson gets may just be enough to get him and his team through these tough times...
August 26, 2002 12:00 am
Mr. Dickenson deciphers the words that are carved onto the mysterious rocks and reads the kids this warning; “Dare not disturb this stone, for here, the Bit Beasts are sealed.” The kids realize that the Saint Shields are part of a clan which still uses this ancient language and they resolve to confront them, even if it means battling and losing their Beyblades in the bargain. Ozuma reveals the history of the Bit Beasts to the Bladebreakers, telling of them of their origin as benevolent spirits until evil men discovered how to control them and use them for their own malicious needs. Since that time, the clan of the Saint Shields has made it their mission to seal the Bit Beasts and save the world from destruction. Dunga issues a battle challenge to the Bladebreakers and Ray answers it with confidence, but Dunga’s new Vortex Ape proves too much for Driger.

As the training season continues, Zeo shows up and sees Draciel and Dragoon in the sky doing battle. Suddenly he decides he must have a Bit Beast of his own, but everyone tells him you have to 'earn' a Bit Beast and it's 'not a toy.’ Meanwhile, Doctor K has extracted a Spider Bit Beast from the rock and gives it to a new Blader named Net whose mission is to go out and capture Tyson's Dragoon. As Tyson races to a Junior Beyblade Tournament, Net cuts him off and draws him into battle. During the fight, Net keeps telling Tyson to release his Dragoon so he can steal it, but when Tyson finally does, Dragoon wins and Net runs away crying. In the end, Zeo absorbs the lesson taught to him by the BladeBreakers who invite him to train with them.

Hilary brings in a pile of her fortune-telling books to help. They decide that Tyson will team with Max, and Kai with Ray. Not long afterward, Kai meets a strange pair named King and Queen, who are very impressed by Dranzer. They talk Kai into battling them, with Dranzer's attack ring up for grabs if they win. To Kai's surprise, not only do they have Bit Beasts of their own, but they're not above tag-teaming him to avoid defeat. By the end of the battle, Dranzer is so damaged that its attack ring is useless, which sends King and Queen on their way empty-handed. When Kai discusses the incident with his Bladebreaker teammates, it's discovered that King and Queen are infamous 'parts hunters' - Blader’s who search for high-end Beyblade parts from others that they can acquire for themselves. Back at Zagart's lab, Zeo tries summoning Cerberus one last time – and succeeds. Cerberus is a massively powerful canine Bit Beast with three snarling heads.
