    • Earlier, the match between Valt and Rantaro barely ends with Valt becoming the official leader of the Beyblade Club.

  • Episode 7: Hoji's power is immense and his special move, Horusood Field, creates a vacuum more powerful than any seen special move, causing Daigo's Bey to Burst.
  • Episode 8: Valt accidentally Out-Gambitted Hoji, using Rush Launch instead of Flash Launch.
  • Episode 9: Wakiya curb stomping Valt 4-0 with both Shield Launch and his new special move, Shield Crash. Also doubles as a Tear Jerker, since it sends Valt into a Heroic B.S.O.D. in the next episode.
  • Episode 11: Valt's rematch against Wakiya finally occurs. And Valt wins the first round with a Flash Launch, finally shutting up Wakiya's ego. However, Wakiya reveals he's been wearing weights the whole time (the dub omits this by just saying he's not holding back) and ends the episode with a power pose, frightening both Hoji and Shu.
  • Episode 12: Despite Wakiya getting another point, Valt fights back and ties with him twice. Near the end of the battle, he uses the rim of the stadium to perform the Ultra Flash Launch.
    • Shu vs Orochi. Orochi proves that he's no slouch and causes both beys to Ring-Out Finish.
  • Advertisement:
  • Episode 13: Shu overcomes Orochi's Odax not just through abilities, but through looking ahead because he wanted to be able to battle Valt. Plus, he timed Counter Break well enough to break through Odax's Blast Beat.
  • Episode 14: Shu and Valt are evenly matched throughout the first battle, and Shu defeats him with a brand new move, the Upper Launch, a Beyblade uppercut.
  • Episode 15: Valt is down 2-0, his Rush Launch and Ultra Flash Launch have both failed against Shu, so what does he do in the next match? Perform Ultra Flash Rush Launch, a combination of his two strongest special moves. This results in Valt becoming the first person to cause Shu, a Supreme Four member, to Burst!
    • Valt and Shu use Ultra Flash Rush Launch and Ultra Counter Break, both beys smashing each other at hyper speeds around the stadium, which nearly results in a tie.
  • Episode 16: Valt vs Yugo, where both characters use the spikes against one another, but Valt breaks through with Ultra Flash Launch.
  • Episodes 18 & 19: Gratuitous Ninja Ukyo from Sword Flames defeats Rantaro and Daigo, the former forcing him to unleash his full power.
  • Episode 20: Ken reveals his completed special move, Chain Launch, which defeats both Ukyo and Yugo. Even Xander gets psyched to battle him next episode.
  • Advertisement:
  • Episode 21: Valt finally gets a point against Xander. The latter uses his special move, Saber Strike, and causes Valtryek to Burst.
  • Episode 24: Hoji attempts a perfect counter to Wakiya's bey: attacking Wakiya before Wyvron hits the ground, weakening it enough to Burst. Unfortunately it fails, but even Wakiya was worried since the timing would've resulted in the opposite effect.
  • Episode 25: Zac dresses as a Kamen Rider and has fun performing multiple backflips (to various degrees of success) and treating the main cast as planets in his sun's orbit. To note:
    • He casually shows up to Wakiya's mansion unannounced. When the latter tells Hoji to remove him, Hoji is about to comply when Nika and Toko reveal Masked Blader's identity and he immediately demands a battle. Zac agrees, and Bursts Horusood in one shot while it was using Horusood Field.
    • When Wakiya chooses to battle him, Zeutron casually neutralizes Wakiya's Shield Launch and makes it Burst as it's using multiple Shield Crashes against Zac's bey. This is topped by Zac commending him on his strength, but advising the rising star to control his hubris.
    • And in his battle with Valt, Valtryek's Super Awakening is able to knock back Zeutron before accidentally causing a self Ring Out Finish. While Valt knocks himself out by mistake, the Masked Blader still notes that he has promise as a blader.
  • Episode 28: Daigo, Shu, and Hoji hatch a plan to make Wakiya's special move work against him in the Biting Stadium. And it works!
    • The whole gang working together to help Wakiya (who's acrophobic) and the twins cross an old rickety bridge.
  • Episode 30: Quon defeats Valt with his Quill Quetziko and then later calls him out on his poor leadership.
  • Episode 32: Valt not only gets a point against Zac, but causes both of them to Burst. If Valtryek had Burst second, Valt would've been the first to have defeated a Supreme Four member.
  • Episode 33: The entire quarter-finals match between Beigoma Academy Bey Club and Sword Flames is one.
    • Wakiya nearly defeats Xander with Wyvron's Shield Crash by countering Xcalius' attacks, severely reducing it's stamina and Xeno Xcalius' Burst layers. However, Xander created a new special move: Duel Sabers, which incorporates Xcalius' Energy Layer and Burst disc lining up perfectly into a powerful One-Hit KO when it's nearly defeated. To Wakiya's credit, Xander notes that he would have saved that for the Individual Tournament, had it not been for Wakiya and Wyvron's efforts.
    • Daigo finally has his rematch with Ukyo, but Ukyo studied Daigo's Quake Launch patterns from their last match. Just as they're about to launch, Daigo instantly recognizes Ukyo changing launch positions and switches to a horizontal launch at the last minute, resulting in Doomscizor trapping Unicrest in the center of the stadium and winning with a Ring-Out Finish.
    • Yugo uses Yugen Yegdrion's gliding material to reduce friction in his match with Shu and aim at an angle where the damage he takes from Spryzen is immensely reduced, but Shu counters that plan by focusing on causing Yegdrion to Burst instead of reducing its Stamina, declaring a Badass Boast while Yugo continues to fight back!
    Shu: No way you can escape my power in that position. Your time's up and your bey's gonna Burst any second!
    Yugo: That might look good on paper, but not in practice!
  • Episode 37: The finals between the Bey Club and Rideout begins.
    • Rantaro finally wins a match in the team tournament, using Roktavor Zone to knock his opponent out of the stadium in one blow.
    • Daigo vs Gabe Brunai, captain of Rideout. Daigo puts up one hell of a fight despite the disadvantage, and while Gabe speeds up to catch him, Daigo still evades and pulls off a counter against him. While Daigo lost, both beys were nearly tied for the double Survivor Finish and Doomscizor only lost by a second.
    • Shu reveals his secret: his left-hand launch, and his bey launches perfectly, finishing off his Rideout opponent with Counter Break.
  • Episode 38: Lui defeats Valt in one blow, but Valtryek managed to outspeed Luinor twice, causing both present Supreme Four members to watch in shock. Plus, Valt doesn't experience a Heroic B.S.O.D. after losing.
  • Episode 39: Valt and Lui tie in round 6, and Valt breaks out the Ultra Flash Launch to do it.
    • In the final round, Lui beats Valt by using his special move, Lost Spiral.
  • Episode 41: Valt kicks the butt of the scientist who nearly got him disqualified from the tournament. It is so awesome to see the smirk wiped from Naoki's face.
  • Episode 42: After being blinded by a flash of light that caused him to mess up his launch during his second battle with Jin Aizawa, Shu stuns the audience in the third battle by pulling off a launch not just with his left hand, but also with his eyes closed! It allows him to win the match by a score of 4-1.
    • And at the end of the episode, Valt curb stomps Naoki with a Burst Finish, using his signature Rush Launch.
  • Valt and Quon have their rematch in the National Tournament in episode 43 and neither of them disappoint. We even get Metal saga levels of awesome, as Quon improves his Bound Launch to have Quetziko flip like a skateboard, and Valt perfects Valtryrek's Super-Awakening with a new move: Winged Launch, to the point where the two special moves clash above the stadium.
  • Two doses in episode 44.
    • We get a close match between Ben and Ken, and the latter has come a long way, even inventing a new launch style to counter Beast Betromoth's overwhelming attack.
    • Gabe manages to Burst Zac in their first match. Zac retakes the lead in the second match, but in the third, Gabe's Gaianon Burst on its own. If it hadn't, Gabe may have defeated a Supreme Four member before Valt.
    • A subtle one here, but what's Gabe's response when Lui chews him out for "being happy that he lost"?
    Gabe: It's called being a good sport.
  • In Episode 45: Wakiya finally gets his wish to battle Shu. He's got a brand new move, the Hyper Shield Crash, and not only takes a point off Shu, but even though he loses, the second attempt puts a dent in Spryzen.
    • Ken made his battle against Lui a surprising Curb Stomp Cushion. Sure he lost, but he held out against him and was the only opponent thus far to not get Burst twice by him in the individual tournament.
      • Valt manages to get nearly the entire stadium (sans Ride Out) cheering for Ken.
  • Episode 46: Valt vs Xander! Just watch the awesomeness that ensues.
  • Episode 47: Just EVERYTHING in the episode is sheer awesomeness!
    • Akira makes a flashy entrance with some impressive backflips. Then, there's his wicked rapping skills.
    • Zac manages to silence the crowd just by raising his hand.
    • Even though his Defense-type Anubion was at a disadvantage against the Stamina-type Zeutron, Akira manages to score a Burst Finish against Zac using his special move, Perfect Circle. It's enough to even the score at 2-2. He proves he can talk the talk and walk the walk.
    • Mid-battle, Zac is able to perfectly copy Akira's launching technique after only seeing it ONCE! He's not one of the Supreme Four for nothing!
  • Episode 48 starts the semi finals of the Individual Tournament with the match between Valt and Zac. First, Valt perfects Sprint Boost with Winged Launch the first time and knocks out Zeutron. In round two, Zac unveils his new special move: Solstice Boost, which gives Valtryek a Ring-Out Finish.
    • In round three, Valt and Zac go all out in a clash between Solstice Boost and Sprint Boost. Despite Victory Valtryek delivering the mother of all barrages with Winged Launch, Zeutron still holds its ground, even shining like a supernova in the center. When Valtryek begins running out of stamina, everyone worries about Valt losing. The V duo don’t give up, and when Valtryek reaches Zeutron, it’s revealed that all of Valt’s attacks may have not affected Zeutron’s stamina, but it was enough to damage all the Burst layers, allowing Valtryek to use that one tap in order to Burst Zeutron.
    • And to top it all off, we get the first battle between Shu and Lui, and Shu busts out a new technique: Crux Boost (Southern Cross Shot) to defeat Lui and cause Luinor to Burst.
  • Episode 49: Lui debuts Nightmare Boost, causing a huge storm and casually turns his back on the battle before Luinor defeats Spryzen in round two. But not only did Spryzen avoid a Burst, Valt was able to perfectly grab it, leaving a very pissed off Lui.
    • In the final round, Shu breaks out Ultra Counter Break to counter Nightmare Boost, but that ends up with Shu and Spryzen being knocked away and losing stamina. However, Shu's and Spryzen's determination engulfs the bey in flames, resulting in the strongest Counter Break thus far, attacking Luinor with all his power. The final clash ends with Luinor losing more stamina and Spryzen about to win....until Spryzen's injuries catch up to it.
  • Episode 51: Valt vs Lui. All of it. And to top it all off, Valt doesn’t complain about the outcome, even though luck played a part in the final match.
  • Towards the end of Evolution #5, Free tells Rantaro to win the next match against Wakiya. Instead of worrying like Valt does, Rantaro accepts this with a better understanding of Berserk Roktavor and sets out to defeat Wakiya in the rematch. In episode six, he manages to claim the center this time, and Bursts Tempest Wyvron with his evolved special move: Ultra Roktavor Zone.
  • In Evolution #15 Valt defeats Arthur, the leader of the Royals thanks to taking off his shoes and stabilizing his toes. Not only does that stabilize Genesis Valtryek’s launch, its speed and power have increased past the usual launch power. Then he uses Spring Winged Launch to deliver the finishing blow. Not only that, Rantaro also perfects his Stamina Launch and finally defeats an opponent in the World League with Ultra Roktavor Zone.
    • Even though Valt messed up his launch, he and Valtryek managed to give Ghasem an even fight before the latter used Maximus Garuda’s special move.
    • Silas creates the ultimate counter to Garuda’s attack. He uses the rubber parts of his bey's Energy Layer to block Garuda's attacks, goads Ghasem into using his special move, and finally uses Roller Defense, blocking Garuda's special move with the rubber parts and weakening Garuda enough to KO him with Cyclone Loop! And Silas even notes his plan would’ve failed had Garuda been closer to the center of the stadium before delivering a Badass Boast after acknowledging Ghasem’s existence.
  • Evolution #16: Wakiya gets his own Moment of Awesome that also overlaps with some Heartwarming when he not only tells Valt and Rantaro about Shu's disappearance, but also takes them (and Daigo) out on his private jet all the way to Mexico to look for their missing friend. In other words, Wakiya is the VERY reason they ever found out about Shu and the Snake Pit in the first place.
  • Evolution Episode #18: Facing an opponent that can predict the future with Shadow Doomscizor, Daigo refuses to lose in round 2. Instead of letting the battle finish with a Ring-Out, Daigo has Krusher Doomscizor intentionally bounce off the stadium walls to descend from the air, performing a One-Hit KO Burst Finish on Shadow Doomscizor with Flying Double Strike.
    • Cuza's match with Gray Eye and Shadow Cognite is worth mentioning. The kid managed to win by pulling off a new move, Gravity Boost, which involves hanging upside-down from a stalagmite! Wakiya even wonders if Cuza is part cat. And just like with Daigo, Cuza also managed to One-Hit KO his opponent.
  • Evolution Episode #25: Xander walks straight through SB Rio’s bladers/martial artists, defeating one with nunchucks, and casually tossing the other aside. Then, Ren Wu drops in (riding an eagle, no less), and he still holds his own despite the latter using a wooden staff in hand-to-hand combat. When Ren Wu's collision with the wall nearly causes it to fall on him, Xander breaks the whole section with a palm strike.
    • Following that, the owner of SB Rios, Banner Clay tests him by challenging 100 opponents in a row. Despite facing physical fatigue and the country’s heat, he refuses to give up. When Banner declares he'll face his last 3 opponents at once, he still doesn't back down. After his launcher breaks, Xander even declares that he'll spin free-hand if he has to.
    • Afterwards, Banner gives him his own launcher, and he beats all three of his final opponents with a new special move, TRIPLE SABER!
  • Evolution #26: Valt finally masters Genesis Reboot with Rickson's help. Plus, his battle with Ghasem has both unleashing their special moves at the same time and Valtryek dodging Garuda in slow-motion!
    • Shasa also gets her own Moment of Awesome as well. Specifically, she forgoes trying to take the center of the stadium despite her bey being a Stamina-type and goes on the offensive, curb stomping her opponent with a single strike. Not to mention her epic one-liner!
    Shasa: There's only one way out of this battle! Let me show you the door!
  • Evolution Episode #27: Wakiya and Xander have their showdown and it does not disappoint at all. Earlier, Ataru and Wakiya developed a strategy that would allow Wyvron to Burst the Infinity bey in one shot. In his battle, he immediately unleashes it: Tempest Wyvron creates a twister of friction where it hovers across the stadium walls and charges straight at Xcalius, nearly causing a Ring Out Finish!
    • Xander nearly loses, but Surge Xcalius recovers and retaliates with Triple Saber, which was able to overpower Super Tempest Attack.
  • In Evolution #40, Cuza uses Carl to attack Kurtz’s gang for heckling Shu and Valt before security arrives to detain them.
  • Evolution Episode #41: Boa's training and Final Guard pulls through in his match against Shu, shocking everyone! Then Shu counters with Requiem Slash, bursting Ark Balkesh so fast, it appears the bey burst twice!
  • Evolution Episode #42: Silas wins his rematch with Xander after losing the first match, with Dual Sabers and Cyclone Loop clashing with each other. The rebound causes Surge Xcalius to Burst before it could perform Triple Saber when both beys collide with the stadium's edge, Satomb's rubber parts shielding it from Bursting.
  • Evolution Episode #43: Joshua actually got a point off of Free by using Cyclone Wall as an upper shield to prevent Free's Drain Spin.
  • Evolution Episode #48: Cuza finally defeated Kurtz at the God Bladers Cup after the majority of his battles were curb stomp losses. Not only does Alter Cognite survive Boom Khalazar's Trigger Attack in round 2, Cuza follows with a new Special Move: Moonsault Dive, a mix of Everything's Better with Spinning, Diving Kick, and Death from Above, bursting Kurtz's bey. Now, with Valt and Kurtz' scores at three wins and two losses, Cuza's victory allowed Valt one more chance to make it to the finals of the God Bladers' Cup.
    • Kurtz and Valt clash in their rematch, resulting in a Double Ring Out and Burst Finish respectively. In round 3, Kurtz's Trigger Attack reaches Rush Launch levels of fast, and Valt overcomes the onslaught with Ultimate Genesis Reboot, emerging victorious.
  • Evolution Episode #49: The semi-finals of the God Blader's Cup are here: Shu vs Lui and Valt vs Free.
    • In round one, Shu easily gives Nightmare Luinor a Ring-Out Finish. Lui instantly wins the second round with Metal Dragon Crush, even telling Spryzen Requiem to Burst.
    • In round three, these two clash head on without special moves, then follow up the charge with Metal Dragon Crush and Requiem Slash. Shu's Special Move overcomes Luinor as it's sent flying in the air, while Spryzen Requiem recovers in the stadium, charging full blast into Luinor as it falls back to the stadium floor!
    Shu: DESTROY HIM NOW!
    • What's more, Shu finally pays back Lui for their previous battle by defeating him and breaking his bey in half, nearly leaving his tormentor in a state of shock until Lui notices something in the cracks of his now destroyed bey.
    • Free starts the battle in his aggressive state, easily Bursting Genesis Valtryek with Nothing Breaker straight into the wall. Valt fights back in round two, using Ultimate Genesis Reboot and Genesis Slash to knock out Drain Fafnir!
    • And Free perfectly catches Fafnir, leaving him shocked, yet excited at Valt's strength.
  • Evolution Episode #50: Valt and Free finally tie with a Burst Finish with the clash of Ultimate Genesis Reboot and Winged Launch against Nothing Breaker.
    • And finally, it's the battle we've all been waiting for...Valt vs Shu!
      • For starters, (with the exception of Lui) every character from both seasons appears to watch the final match, including the ones who were put on busses.
  • Evolution Episode #51:
    • Valt finally defeats Shu, freeing him from Spryzen Requiem's control and keeping the promise they made from season one. Bonus points for the two tying fifteen times after Valt's first Burst Finish on Shu's bey.
    • We finally get to hear Valtryek actually speak to Valt.
    Valtryek: Valt, I believe in you!
  • Super Z Episode #1: Valt and Aiger have an equal battle, forcing the latter to go Super Saiyan and give Valt a run for his money. Also, Valt's Wonder Valtryek is the only bey Valt has mastered with little difficulty.
  • Super Z Episode #2: Aiger pushes his new beyblading potential to his limits. Not only does he engage in an eighty-eight winning streak, and half of a gang, he follows up that again by defeating one hundred beybladers at Beigoma Academy.
    • Then Aiger battles Toko, who now has his own unique bey, Spiral Treptune, and knocks Z-Achilles away with Spiral Counter. Aiger responds in round 2 with Z-Buster and negates its special draining abilities to win with a Burst Finish.
    • Aiger and Fubuki's battle does not disappoint and the two clash with their special moves. Aiger also narrowly wins the first round with a Ring Out Finish.
  • Super Z Episode #6: Naru gets away with calling Lui an idiot after he insults her brother and Ranjiro, so he offers a challenge to the three bladers: a battle royale against him and Bloody Luinor. The first thing Aiger does is swallow his pride and ask Fubuki and Ranjiro to work together and defeat Lui. They refuse, but slowly come around to him, spending the night practicing for the match.
    • When said match comes, the winner is obvious, but the trio go down fighting. Fubuki's Emperor Guard holds back Luinor for a while, only for Lui to pull a page out of Valt's book and recoil off to Burst Forneus. Then Ranjiro uses Roktavor Typhoon, which knocks Luinor back into the stadium, but Luinor uses the recoil to activate Dragon Scream and power straight through with a Burst. Tired but not out, Aiger attacks and, using both Z Launch and Z Buster, nearly pushes Luinor out with a Ring Out Finish. But Lui surprises everyone with a second special move, Bloody Squall, from the air with a barrage of light arrows and crashes straight into Z Achilles.
  • Super Z Episode #12: Shu Kurenai makes his first physical appearance in the season when he had only been seen previously in flashbacks.
  • Super Z Episode #13: The anticipated final battle of the Longnius Cup between Aiger and Souh gets underway. In round one, Aiger uses Salamander's risky jumping attack barrage by sending Achilles into the air via rebounding off the walls, knocking Hell Salamander out of the stadium. In the second round, Suoh uses a new defensive special move: Raging Crimson Hellfire, actually burning Z Achilles with hellfire until it loses in a Survivor Finish. This prompts Aiger to master both defense and attack at the same time. In round three, Z Defense and Crimson Hellfire reach a stalemate, but Aiger wins by countering Wrath of the Flaming Tornado with Z Slash, sending Hell Salamander crashing into the stadium until Z Achilles finishes it off with the sword edge.
  • Super Z Episode #14: After properly focusing, Aiga battles Houi and Ranjiro at the same time, winning with two Burst Finishes in a row without using a special move. Confident in his abilities now, he and Lui face off in round one, nearly matching each other blow for blow. When Luinor uppercuts Achilles, Aiger anticipates it and uses his new special move: Z Dive. However, Lui changes his own destiny (beware of falling objects) out of sheer willpower and uses Dragon Crash to burst Achilles yet again.
  • Super Z Episode #22: Laban using Howling Bite to defeat both Fubuki and Xhan was cool, but Suoh managed to eliminate Aiger and Houi, ultimately giving him a good challenge to a battle that needed the replays to be decided.
  • Super Z Episode #24: Achilles not only survives a Fifth Impact, barely avoiding a Burst Finish, but counters Xhan's overwhelming power as Aiger finally uses Z Dive after its ineffectiveness against Lui in its first debut, earning a victory against Xhan for the first time.
  • Super Z Episode #25: Free returns with his upgraded bey, Geist Fafnir, getting the upper hand in his battle with Aiger, in spite of Aiger's bey slowly starting to possess him.
  • Super Z Episode #26: Xhan managing to score a point against Phi (which is something not even Aiger had managed to do) using Fifth Impact, reminding us that he is indeed strong. Phi responds with his new special move Revive Armor Press, where both Phoenix and his Revive Armor attack Buster Xcalius at the same time!
  • Valt shows an incredible level of maturity when his Wonder Valtryek is shattered by a darkness-corrupted Aiger. Instead of crying, breaking down or getting angry, he simply notices that Aiger is acting exactly like Shu did under Spryzen Requiem's possession and vows to free his new friend from Z Achilles' grasp.
  • Meta Example: A character poll was held in Japan, and the s1/s2 characters beat out the s3 characters by a landslide. and in the individual rankings, Shu, Free and Valt were listed as the three most popular Burst characters.
