* The tournament match between the All Starz and the BBA was rigged to assure that the American players and [[MartialArtsAndCrafts their gimmicks]] would have the advantage:
** Steve vs. Takao: a reproduction of New York streets. Apparently counterintuitive, given Steve's shtick is [[UsefulNotes/AmericanFootball being a quarterback]], and most usually see them charging... Thing is, a quarterback also has to ''dodge'', and, as Steve points out when Takao tries hiding among the buildings, it's easier with the unmoving buildings than with actual football players;
** Eddy vs. Rei: a ''low gravity field'' provided by NASA. Again counterintuitive, what with Rei having SeenItAll and Eddy being into UsefulNotes/{{Basketball}}... Except it's about the gimmicks of ''Eddy's beyblade''. Whose Flying Defense attack ring, thanks to its sheer size, gives it excellent equilibrium and near-impossibility to knock it out, and, with size and form, makes it ''fly''. Not even Rei could find a way out of that...
** Michael vs. Max: a baseball stadium, with the catcher place being toward Max's position. Given Michael's gimmick is being a [[UsefulNotes/{{Baseball}} pitcher]], an obvious one, and a likely attempt to put pressure. It also symbolically foreshadows Max's victory: the place baseball's most popular is ''Japan''.
*** Another piece of the American strategy for the match comes from analyzing the beyblades: Draciel is a defensive beyblade that would outlast the All Starz' attack-based beyblades (the only defensive one is Trypio, and that one's necessary for Rei and Driger), but Trygle's own gimmick is putting the wings of the base under the opponent's beyblade and ''jump'' (what it does all the time in the manga, in fact). The idea was to throw out Draciel if it somehow resisted the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Cannonball Attack]]... And that's probably why Max angled Draciel so that it wouldn't get the attack ring under Trygle's wings.

** Tala Vs Tyson: An icy field, again playing into the elemental strengths of Tala's Wolborg bitbeast.

!Fridge Brilliance
!!Season 1
* The fact Hiruta, the first of Takao's opponents, has Kid Dragoon (or at least a custom including its distinctive Upper Dragoon attack ring with Kid Dragoon's colours) as his first known beyblade makes sense. On a competitive and meta level, it shows he knows what he's doing but isn't a champion (that attack ring is part of a pair of rather useful customs, but even in the early plastic generation there were many better beyblades, both pre-packaged and customs), and overcoming him (through smarts and not force to boot) is Takao's first step on the road to championship. There's also the name, Kid ''Dragoon'', and defeating that beyblade means Takao is growing up from kiddie level.

* The PPB is literally BackedByThePentagon and the NASA, the BBA Team has access to extremely advanced training equipment, and in the original Japanese version the government takes close interest in the success of the American beyblade team. Ultimate SeriousBusiness? Part that and part ''those beyblades hold weapons of mass destruction'', it's only natural the US government takes care of them and the teens that can use them.

!!Season 3
* Kai's BadassBoast that no one can defeat his Dranzer G makes a lot of sense considering that, bar the match against Daichi in the world tournament, which Kai threw, no beyblader came even close to defeat Kai when he was using Dranzer G and when he did lose to Takao in the finals, he already upgraded to the Dranzer GT.
* One thing that seems odd in the third season was how Takao freaked out over how his teammates all left. It could be HoYay, but think about his home life: [[MissingMom his mom died]], his dad is always away on work, and his brother left years earlier, and the only family that's constantly there for him is his loving, but slightly insane grandfather. To make a long story short, it wouldn't be surprising if Takao has some abandonment issues.
* During the BEGA arc, Volkov shows off how powerful BEGA is by having his bladers, specifically Garland and Brooklyn, literally tear apart their competition. However, the only bladers that are tortured are Sergei, Boris, Yuriy, and Kai, all bladers that used to work under him. He wasn't just showcasing BEGA's bladers, he was punishing his old subordinates.
* When Takao, Hiromi, Kyōju, Max and Daichi can't find Hitoshi, Daichi looks ''under a rock''. Seems just a throwaway gag... Except Hitoshi is a ''ninja''. Is it ''that'' strange that TheDitz expects him to be [[BehindAStick hidden in places too small for that]]?
