''Beyblade'' (known as ''Explosive Shoot Beyblade'' in Japan), more specifically the original anime installment in the popular MerchandiseDriven ''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...

** White Tigers and Blitzkreig Boys from season 1 to season 3. Oh, and the [[UpperClassTwit Majestics]]. And Kai between V-Force and G-Rev, to the point where it's insanely hard to rationalise. And Ray, omigod Ray. Goes from occasionally awesome, polite, pretty sane really, to muscle-bound meanie obsessed with winning.

* SeriousBusiness: This series is up there with ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' in terms of inanity. Apparently, if you want to take over the world, you have to do it with ''spinning tops''. As seen in ''G-Revolution'', Beyblade is recognized as an official sport. Lampshaded by Brooklyn to Kai, who on several occasions made remarks about how serious Kai was about the game. Also lampshaded in the German Beyblade opening, were a line in the lyrics essentially is "The whole world revolves around Beyblade". This aspect of the series is actually justified. At one point you do see Kai's beyblade chop down about 6 trees in one go and in another situation, he demolishes 4 brick pillars so you can probably imagine what it'd do to a human. The Beyblades contain powerful beasts trapped inside them and are covered in very sharp metal spikes, so they're much more dangerous than simple kids tops.

Season 2 (V-Force) shifted gears, focusing on the conflict between the Bladebreakers and the Saint Shields, who reluctantly teamed up against an evil organization with their mind set on capturing the four sacred bit beasts: Dragoon, Draciel, Dranzer, and Driger. It introduced TheChick named Hilary (Hiromi in Japan), who really disliked Tyson. She later became an assistant to the team, not taking part in battles herself but [[CuteSportsClubManager assisting the rest in training and helping to hold things together.]] It also changed up the Beyblades to use Magnacores, magnets in the center that added a new dynamic. Unlike the first and third seasons, it only had one TournamentArc at the end.

Indeed, 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 new characters such as 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.

Much like many other localized kid-oriented anime of the time, the English verision 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"]].

** Which causes an AdaptationInducedPlotHole as the dub exclusive bit-beast character Dizzi is referred to as a female along with the fact she clearly has a female voice. (Though she does state she was always different from other Bit-beasts at one point)

* CantCatchUp: To put it simple, anyone without an incredibly rare Bit Beast has no chance against someone who does, regardless of skill. This line of thought reached its logical conclusion by the third series, by which time Bit Beasts had become [[PubertySuperpower as common as dirt]].

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Andrew (Akira in the Japanese version) in season 1 who is set up as apparently a very important character (and Tyson's good friend) but largely disappears after a couple episodes. He appears again in episode 50 only to never be seen or heard from again for the rest of the series.

* 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.
* DisneyDeath: There was a somewhat odd example near the end of season 1. Ray's bit-beast Driger apparently sacrifices itself in order to save Ray's life. According to Kai, while Driger was able to protect Ray from taking further damage from Falborg's wind attacks, the attack was too much for Driger, which caused it to disappear after the fight. Near the end of the season finale, it is shown that Driger has returned to Ray.

This is presented as a [[DysfunctionJunction Bad Thing]] ... except you rarely see anyone else practising either. Most of the time, when someone needs to get stronger, they either get new equipment or a [[DeusExMachina convenient Bit Beast upgrade]].

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.

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.
