Go Shoot!

" Beyblade is the best way to have fun with spinning battle-use tops in the world. Beys are launched from the launcher, with the blazing feelings of the bladers, and collide in the stadium! Beyblade Burst is the story of the battles of young men who have entrusted their dreams to beyblade!"

The narrator, At the beginning of every episode.

Beyblade Burst is the third incarnation of the Beyblade franchise. It is comprised of a 2015 manga series, written by Hiro Morita, and an anime series, which began airing on TV Tokyo on April 4, 2016.

Valt Aoi is a cheerful boy in the 5th Grade. Crazy about Beyblade, he works hard to better himself at Beyblade with the partner Bey, Valtryek.Valt's close friend Shu Kurenai, who is regarded as a Beyblade genius, is a participant in the National Tournament and is called one of the "Supreme Four" due to his high influence within the tournament. Valt, who is inspired by Shu, sets his aim towards the National Tournament!

This series provides examples of:

  • The Ace: The Four Kings, better known as the Supreme Four, consisting of Shu, Xander, Zac and Lui, the strongest Beybladers in the world. Interesting enough, they cover the four types; Shu (Balance), Xander (Attack), and Zac (Stamina). Wakiya is this to a lesser extent in the current tournaments.
  • Alliterative Name: All of the characters' beyblades have this (i.e Victory Valtryek, Raging Roktavor, Storm Spryzen, etc.)
  • Awesome, but Impractical:
    • Valt's Rush Launch is powerful, but if an opponent can deflect it or dodge it, it's useless and drains Valtryek's stamina.
    • Wakiya's Shield Crash weakness is revealed. In situations such as the Viking Stadium, dodging the Shield Crash and then counterattacking leaves Wyvron very vulnerable.
  • Battle Tops: It's Beyblade. We wouldn't have a show without them.
  • Battle Aura: Everyone has one. Also Colour-Coded for Your Convenience.
    • Valt = Blue
    • Shu = Red
    • Wakiya = Purple
    • Rantaro/Honcho = Yellow/Gold
    • Kensuke = Green
    • Daigo = Dark Purple
    • Xander = Brick Red
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Daigo pulled this on Valt in episode 5, only to change his ways after losing to him.
  • Brought to You by the Letter "S": All the prominent characters' beyblades have transparent letters on the centers of their Energy Layers that correspond with the first letters of their names and with their owners' names. Valt himself has a V-shape design on his shirt, and Wakiya and Zac have "W" and "Z" shaped belt buckles, respectively.
  • Catch Phrase: Go Shoot! (Let It Rip! in the dub)
  • Color Motifs: See Battle Aura above.
  • Chromatic Arrangement: Shu (red), Ken (green), and Valt (blue)
  • Defeating the Undefeatable: Downplayed but Valt becomes the first person to Burst Spryzen in episode 15 even though he didn't win the match.
  • Dub Name Change: A few characters had their names changed in the English dub:
    • Kensuke Midorikawa —> Ken Midori
    • Daina —> Daigo
    • Xhaka —> Xander
    • Souta (Daigo's younger brother) —> Ryota
  • Elite Four: The Supreme Four: Shu, Xander, Zac, and Lui.
  • Empathic Weapon: Since it's Beyblade it's a given. Though it's Downplayed, compared to previous seasons. Skill is a much more deciding factor.
  • Everything Is Better With Spinning: The only way spinning tops could ever be cool.
  • Fingerless Gloves: Most of the characters wear them with few exceptions.
  • Finishing Move: Most of the main cast has at least one. Valt has the Rush and Flash Shoot (Rush Launch and Flash Launch in the dub), Shu has Counter Break and Upper Launch, Rantaro has Roktavor Zone, etc.
  • Five-Man Band: The Beigoma Academy BeyClub
  • Four-Man Band: The Supreme Four
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: The Bey Club, before the addition of Shu and Wakiya.
    • Valt: Sanguine
    • Rantaro: Chloeric
    • Daigo: Melancholic
    • Ken: Phlegmatic
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Shu has one on his right eye.
  • Hard Work Hardly Works: Downplayed. Shu is said to be a genius that appears only once every 10 years but he works just as hard and practices/trains just as much, if not more so, than the others do. Main protagonist wise, Valt trains harder than Gingka and Zyro, though not as much as Tyson
  • Ill Boy: Daigo's little brother Ryota isn't too well, though his condition isn't serious.
  • Lighter and Softer: This series is much lighter and more kid friendly than Shogun Steel and the Metal Saga.
  • Limited Wardrobe: Like most Shounen series; this one is no exception.
  • Luminescent Blush: Everyone has in this show when they're embarrassed. Even Wakiya.
  • Mutual Kill: Valt and Daigo engage in this 11 TIMES in episode 5.
  • Only Sane Man: Shu, Nika and Toko are this amongst the majority of the characters.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Nika and Toko, who have pink and blue hair, respectively.
  • Put on a Bus: Ken(suke) in episode 21. A bit of Reality Ensues since his family travels performing puppet shows.
  • Sixth Ranger: Shu and Wakiya join the Bey Club in episode 26.
  • Symbol Motif Clothing: Most of the main characters have symbols/designs on their outfits or accessories that represent their respective Beyblades.
  • Summon Magic: When the characters are ready to launch their beys their bit beast manifest behind them.
  • The Team: Valt starts up the Bey Club at Beigoma Academy, and though the principal temporarily declares it okay, they still need 5 members in total. By episode 26, its official.

  • Token Mini-Moe:
    • Nika and Toko.
    • Xander has his own team, Team Sword Flames
  • Tournament Arc: I bet you didn't expect that.
  • The Unfought: Until the Area Selection Tournament, Orochi Ginba was the only rival Valt hadn't faced in the Regional Tournament.
  • Unknown Rival: Wakiya sees Shu as this, but Shu is more focused on Valt as a rival.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Valt's hair is a dark blue, Nika's is pink and Toko's is a light blue.
