Years after both the manga and anime concluded, the franchise was revived again in a manga and later anime, ''Anime/MetalFightBeyblade'', known as ''Beyblade: Metal Fusion'' outside of Japan, which also ran for three seasons. In 2012, a sequel series was announced, ''Anime/BeybladeZeroG'', known as ''Beyblade: Shogun Steel'' outside of Japan. Both ''Metal Fight'' and ''Shogun Steel'' are set in an AlternateContinuity from the original series, though the occasional visual reference to OG Beyblade is made here and there.

The latest anime, ''Beyblade Burst'' is set to premiere in spring 2016, seemingly still unconnected to the OG Beyblade anime and manga.

Season 3 (G-Revolution) was a return to the TournamentArc heavy format, with one major twist: the Bladebreakers were no longer together. Max and Ray went back to their old teams, and Kai, in a TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou situation, defected to the Demolition Boys (renamed the Blitzkrieg Boys in the dub) so he could face Tyson. The teammates faced off against each other in the various tournaments, but ultimately became allies again for the final TournamentArc of the series. it also introduced a new main character, Daichi Sumeragi, [[BigBad Boris]]'s new QuirkyMinibossSquad (BEGA) who wrestled control of the entire sport of Beyblade from the BBA, and a whole new kind of Beyblade, the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Heavy/Hard Metal System]], which would serve as the basis for ''Anime/MetalFightBeyblade''. A new part was also introduced, the Engine Gear, a motor that gave the blades a spin boost in battle.

Note that the anime series was [[AdaptationExpansion adapted from the manga]]. Changes were to be expected such as the length in battles (the manga featured a one-battle-only mode while the anime used the best-out-of-three rounds). Furthermore, in the manga, many of the [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters members of other teams]] were actually lucky if their names were even mentioned while the anime fleshed them out a bit more (to the point of giving ''every single team member'' a bit beast and at least featuring them in one battle). Finally, the anime included an original final arc, the BEGA tournament one, with new enemies. Said new characters taken from characters that appeared on extra artwork pages of the manga. Much like many other localized kid-oriented anime of the time, the English dub of Beyblade was given a number of changes including Western names for characters, Dizzi's entire existence, certain parts of the show that wouldn't fly when broadcast on U.S. TV, and for whatever reason, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Tyson's grandpa frequently using jive talk and similar slang to unsuccessfully establish himself as "the cool Grandpa"]].

Years after both the manga and anime concluded, the franchise was revived again in a manga and later anime, ''Anime/MetalFightBeyblade'', known as ''Beyblade: Metal Fusion'' outside of Japan. In 2012, yet a sequel series was announced: a continuation of ''Metal Fight'' called ''Anime/BeybladeZeroG'', known as ''Beyblade: Shogun Steel'' outside of Japan. Both ''Metal Fury'' and ''Shogun Steel'' are set in an AlternateContinuity from the original Beyblade, though the occasional visual reference to OG Beyblade is made here and there.

* FairPlayVillain: In G-Revolution, Kai forces Bryan and Spencer to simultaneously battle him, to ensure a fair fight against an exhausted Tyson straight after. Needless to say, Kai singlehandedly defeats them both before taking on Tyson.

* SparedByTheAdaptation: After using the Cyber Bit-Beast [[spoiler: Minami (Wyatt)]] perishes in the original however all this is cut from the dub and he is implied to have gone crazy instead. An obvious [[BowdleriSation Bowlderisation]] attempt however [[FridgeHorror when you actually think about it]], they made it more family unfriendly by giving him AFateWorseThanDeath.

* DemotedToExtra: The Bit-Beasts in G-Revolution. Despite being a major element to the Bey-battles in the previous two seasons, they're barely mentioned or featured in fight scenes in G-Revolution.



** Similarly, in G-Rev, Dranzer's bit-chip shatters and you hear it cry ... and yet, come epilogue, here s/he is again.
*** Well Dranzer is a pheonix, [[RuleOfSymbolism an animal depicted to be reborn from it's own ashes]], so yeah...
** When Tyson beat Tala, Driger returned, along with all the other stolen bit-beasts ... despite the fact that Driger hadn't been stolen.

''Beyblade'' (known as ''Bakuten Shoot Beyblade'' in Japan), more specifically the original anime installment in the popular MerchandiseDriven ''Franchise/{{Beyblade}}'' franchise focuses the trials and tribulations of the Bladebreakers, a team of Beybladers who all came from different backgrounds and countries. Most characters have a "bit beast" in their Beyblade, embodiments of legendary creatures like dragons and phoenixes that are able to control various elements. But just ''what'' is a Beyblade? Is it like [[Franchise/YuGiOh those popular children's card games taken very seriously]]? Well, yes...
