''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...

* ImmuneToSlapstick: Of the main cast, Kai (being TheStoic AntiHero of the team) rarely took part in comedic moments, usually acting as a bemused audience or leaving to do his own thing. Rei/Ray, though more jovial, usually only had a handful of cartoony moments per series as well.

* MyLittlePanzer: There are some things Beyblades can do in the anime that ''would never allow them to be approved for child, or even general public, use''. Even disregarding the bit beast, some of the components used in them can cause some serious damage, ''with one person even firing their Beyblade at another like a gun''. Obviously, this is all really toned down in RealLife... But that said, it's generally a good idea to make sure the components for them are on ''tight'', and it's not a particularly wise idea to stand close to the arena...

Is it like [[Franchise/YuGiOh those popular children's card games taken very seriously]]? Well, yes...

Beyblading, you see, is ''[[MundaneMadeAwesome just spinning tops]]''. But turned UpToEleven. And SeriousBusiness too, what with it being seen as an ''actual sporting competition''.

The first season focused on the Bladebreakers' rise to the top, starting from taking down an illicit Beygang helmed by Kai to obtain "the ultimate Bit Beast that no one can beat" to taking on the world in many a TournamentArc, often butting heads with the local bladers (but, much like many series of its kid, [[DefeatMeansFriendship defeat almost always means friendship]] or begruding acceptance. The original Bladebreakers team consisted of cocky but well-meaning kid Tyson (Takeo in Japan) with the dragon bit beast Dragoon, happy-go-lucky Max with the turtle Bit Beast Draciel, does-not-play-well-with-others Kai (yes, that one from the street gang) with the phoenix Bit Beast Dranzer, former member of the Chinese team the White Tigers Rei with the tiger Bit Beast Driger, and Bey information whiz kid Kenny (Manabu in Japan) who normally didn't fight. In the first two seasons of the English dub only, Kenny was given a Bit Beast named Dizzi trapped in his laptop, whose main services were to assist in exposition on the game and provide a healthy helping of sass. The final portion of this season featured the sudden appearance of the world domination seeking BigBad, Boris and the Russian Beyblade team The Demolition Boys, who had some past connections with Kai.

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 Tala's team 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), 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.
