** The English openings, ''Our Time'' for season one, ''Evolution'' for season two, and ''Turbo'' for season three all sound amazing. The original ''Burst Finish'', ''Evolution Burst'', and ''Chouzetsu Muteki Blader'' are blood pumping as well with a mix of catchy, upbeat lyrics.

*** This got worse in season 2, after we learn that he willingly threw away all of his friendships and allowed himself to be possessed by Spryzen Requiem for the sake of becoming powerful enough to beat Lui and Free. He also had no qualms about breaking other peoples' Beys. It also doesn't help that whenever he has a problem, he tends to push away those who want to help him. And while he did apologize to everyone in the end, some felt that the way he did it made him seem as though he was only sorry for letting Spryzen control him, and not for betraying them for selfish reasons.

** In season 2 episode 20, we’re made to feel bad for Trad when Kris ignores his advice and suggestions, which culminates in him deciding to transfer to the Raging Bulls. However, he is almost always seen questioning Kris’ actions despite her being the club manager, blaming Valt and Rantaro for the team’s losses, refusing to acknowledge or even have any faith in the newer recruits, and never putting a stop to Stan’s bullying (even going as far as to treat him as the ''victim''). He does later admit to Kris that she was right to believe in her team, though he never actually apologizes for his earlier attitude.

** Orb Engaard was originally known for its unique suction cup gimmick that held it in place on the stadium, greatly reducing its chances of being knocked out. In ''Slingshock'' however, the rubber Quest Performance Tip was instead molded with solid plastic, allowing for aggressive movement around the stadium akin to an Attack-type, which is unfitting considering Orb Engaard was meant to be a Defense-type Bey.

** Many fans were outraged when Aiger [[spoiler:shattered Valt's Wonder Valtryek]]. It doesn't help that almost ''nobody'' (except for Free, Fubuki, Taiga, and the twins) cared about what happened ''at all'', acting nonchalant about the whole situation, and only cared that [[spoiler:Aiger won]].

** Trad is also this for mostly the same reasons as Stan, such as his rather cynical and unpleasant demeanor, his closed-mindedness towards the newer team recruits and bias against Valt (including blaming him for any faults), turning a blind eye to Stan's bullying, and his shallow reason for leaving BC Sol (Free was there at the time). It doesn't help that [[KarmaHoudini he's never once been called out for it]], and is usually always presented as the one in the right.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Hasbro's adaptation of the Beyblades from ''Turbo'' under their ''Slingshock System'' was met with lots of disappointment due to [[FamilyFriendlyFirearms replacing originally metal parts in the Energy Layer with child-safer plastic]]. While having attempted to make up for it with Slingshock-exclusive unique gimmicks, their overall lighter weight still leaves them less useful and competitive than their heavier metal-clad Japanese counterpart, some being even weaker than their ''predecessor'' models.

** Originally a manga-exclusive character, Count Nightfell was brought in for the Dread Tower arc of the anime series, and then disappears afterwards, with no further explanation for his Bey-theiving ways.



** As much as a jerk Lui is, the worst he's ever done is scar Shu and belittle bladers he views as beneath him, and he simply wants to be the best blader, a right he possesses just as much as the rest of the cast does. Seeing his Nightmare Luinor break during his battle with Shu in the International Blader's Cup can make one want to feel bad for Lui, even if some argue that he deserved it.

** Shu can come off as this sometimes. While he's had many terrible things happen to him (getting scarred by Lui, his Bey breaking, and getting brainwashed), it becomes hard to sympathize with him once you realize ''most'' of what happened to him was his own fault (except for the scarring from Lui), as he was aware that his Storm Spryzen wasn't in condition to battle Lui, yet went along with it anyway, [[spoiler: resulting in said destruction of his Bey]].
