Shu: Which puppet voice is the "real" you?
- Valt learns about Ken's backstory, and invites him to join the Bey Club.

- Shu bringing Valt back to his apartment and making carbonara for him after he passed out in the park from intense training.
- During their match, Daigo realizes how much Valt reminds him of his brother Ryota and all the times they spent together battling.
- Very small one here, but Valt is seen with a normal profile pic in this episode, as opposed to the one he had for the last few episodes of him biting his tongue. It's possible that the officials allowed Valt to retake his picture.
- Episode 6: Daigo is revealed to have joined the Bey Club, and although it's likely he only agreed to join to get Valt off his back, it shows that Valt's persistence ultimately paid off.
- By episode 8, Valt and the rest of the Beyblade Club have officially become True Companions.

- Episode 14: Valt, Shu, and the twins reuniting with their old friend, Xander.
- Made even more poignant not only by the fact that Valt, Shu and Xander have known each other since Kindergarten, but also because Toko and Nika couldn't have been more than a year old during that time, and they were still able to remember Xander.
- Episode 15: We get to see a flashback of young Valt, Shu and Xander. It's both adorable and funny.
- Episode 16: While heading to Xander's village to see Shu, Nika reveals a little heart-shaped tart she made for him. Simply adorable.
- We're also treated to another flashback of Valt, Shu and Xander from their kindergarten days. And while Valt often lost to Xander whenever the two competed against one another, that never stopped him from getting back up and trying again.
- Episode 21: The Bey Club hosts a going-away party for Ken.
- Valt and Ken agreeing to always be friends, no matter how far apart they may be.
- Episode 24: Wakiya wishes Valt good luck right before the latter's battle with Rantaro, telling him not to lose. It's still anyone's guess on whether he was being sincere or not, but it's nice to see Wakiya acting friendly to Valt for once.
- Episode 25: Zac's interactions with the twins throughout the episode imply that he's fond of children.
- During his match with Zac, Valt passes out from exhaustion due to training all day with Rantaro, but Zac nonetheless compliments him for putting up a good fight, and simply tells Nika and Toko to make sure their brother is well-rested for their rematch.
- Just the fact that Zac thinks very highly of Valt in general.
- Episode 26: Shu comforting a remorseful Daigo after he cheated in his battle with Yugo, and then later lying to Ryota to cover for him.

- When he finds them, he comforts them after seeing how frightened they are.
- As thanks for helping him and the twins, Wakiya decides to let Valt be the team captain. It's rather nice Character Development on Wakiya's part.
- Episode 33: During Wakiya's match with Xander, Orochi mentions that Wakiya has now started to appreciate Beyblade more, most likely due to Valt's influence.
- And later, when Wakiya is venting his frustration over losing, Valt and Rantaro remind him that he's one of the team, complete with Valt telling Wakiya how awesome he is.
- Episode 36: Ichiro, Momoko, Hiroshi and Keita are interviewing the Bey Club members, and Daigo mentions that he used to only care about his own battles, but now he has friends who've helped him grow as a person and blader. It's enough to move Momoko to tears.
- Episode 37: Wakiya offers the Bey Gang his training equipment.
Shu: I've been thinking about how glad I am that you asked me to join the team.
- Daigos brother, Ryota, is finally healed and both Daigo and Ken celebrate. After Daigo falls asleep from fatigue, Besu pets him on the head.

"If someone loses a point, their team gets it back. That's how teams work. You said that, remember?"

- Episode 40: When Valt nearly ends up forfeiting his match due to a fake phone call courtesy of Naoki Minamo, Wakiya purposely stalls his own match in order to buy Valt more time. Fortunately, Valt makes it. Wakiya later complains that he had to look out for Valt. As much as he hates to admit it, he really does care about Valt.
- Keep in mind that this is the same Wakiya who mocked and belittled Valt at nearly every opportunity he got, and yet he couldn't bring himself to let Valt be disqualified from the Individual Tournaments.
- Episode 42: Valt telling Naoki that while he doesn't like the idea of using beys as science experiments, he still thinks that research in general is cool, and tops it off with him saying he wants to battle him again sometime.

- Episode 45: We get to see Mr. Aoi, Valt's father, for the first time.
Hoji: "I know you. We've trained a lot together. I know how much effort you put into this. You're not the type of blader who throws in the towel after one minor setback. You're different. It's tough times like these that help you improve. So what if you lost? You'll keep getting stronger."
- Hoji snapping Wakiya out of his Heroic BSoD.
Ryota: "Quit your chirpin', you big meanie!"
- Ryota sticking up for Ken after Wakiya insulted him.
- And at the very end, Wakiya admits to Shu that he was able to become stronger because of his influence.
- Made a little humorous when Valt and Rantaro playfully tease Wakiya about having a heart.
- In Evolution #11, Ivan assures Valt and Rantaro that their losses are necessary, and they have the strength to make BC Sol stronger as he leaves. This scene is even more poignant when Silas rejoins BC Sol towards the end of the episode.
- After joining numerous Bey Clubs only to find that no other bladers can provide a challenge for him, Silas decides to return after Wakiya of all people battles him, convincing him that Valt and BC Sol will need his help. Or as Wakiya states, "to make the World League interesting for him".
- In Evolution #15, we see Arthur Lawrence, the captain of the Royals, witnessing Ghasems struggles and offering him a bey called Maximus Garuda because he wanted him to aim higher, saving Ghasem and starting him on the path that would make his father proud.
- While Ghasem winning the first round was bad from BC Sol's point of view, Ghasem got some closure from defeating Silas, as it finally allowed him to avenge his fathers old beyblade and legacy.
- Evolution #16 has Valt telling Cuza all about Shu and everything they've been through together.
- That moment with Rantaro carrying Wakiya on his back is both funny and cute.

- Evolution Episode #27: Hoji, Nika, Toko, Chiharu, and Wakiyas lackeys arrive to greet Valt, BC Sol, and Wakiya after their flight back to Japan. Heck, even Ken returns!
- Silas actually smiling and even blushing a little when Nika asks him for his autograph.
- Rantaros Roktavor unintentionally saves Valts Valtryek from receiving a Ring Out Finish at the cost of his own victory, technically giving BC Sol a team win against Xander and Wakiya.
- SB Rios and Sunbat United unite with Sword Flames and Wakiyas old crew, heartwarmingly respecting and enjoying each others company.
- Evolution #37: Boa befriending a group of young kids who admire his skills. Every time they're shown, they're cheering him on. When he loses to Valt in #47, they're able to help Valt snap Boa out of his Heroic BSoD. He's visibly touched by their words, and later seen sitting with them while watching Valt take on Kurt.
- Episode #42: After Valt and Cuza's losses, Silas' win finally gives BC Sol a morality boost. Wakiya also gets props for helping Silas out beforehand to defeat Xander. He even warns Kris about his suspicions with the Snake Pit Bladers.

- Evolution #50:
- Kris and Free have a heartwarming moment when she gets the latter to accept the forfeit (because he couldn't move his arm) in his match with Valt. Free and the rest of BC Sol have one in the aftermath of this, as Free finally comes into the fold of the rest of the group, with Shasa telling Free that of course they were worried about him, because he's their friend.
- Plus, there's that little sweet moment where Free holds Honey's hand and gently reassures her that he'll be okay.
- Free admitting to Valt that even though he lost, he still had fun.
- Toko and Nika tackling their older brother, and the three of them hugging and laughing with each other.
- Daigo sticking up for Ken after Shu ripped one of his dog puppets is worth mentioning.
- Evolution #51 shows us that true friendship can never be broken, as Valt and all of his friends welcome Shu back with open arms and hold no resentment toward him for what he did as Red Eye.
Shu: I admit it, you're my best friend! It's true! That's why I can't fail! I would never be able to forgive myself if I lost this battle! I won't EVER let you defeat me, Valt!
- What's the first thing Valt does when he wins the final battle? Does he celebrate that he won? Nope! He immediately walks over to Shu, asks him if he's okay and offers him a hand. He doesn't even care that he just won the International Blader's Cup; all that matters to him is that his best friend is back.
- This line spoken by Shu during the climax reveals that even when he was brainwashed, he never entirely stopped caring or thinking about Valt:
- Valt and Shu are able to honor the promise they made back in season one by having a Beybattle just like old times.
- Shu, having returned to Japan, fondly remembers his friends having fun together on the Beigoma Academy rooftop, saying that he hopes to see them again soon.
- And, when Fubuki Sumiye appears and asks to battle with him, Shu doesn't hesitate to agree.
- Turbo Episode 3:
- Ranjiro showing his love and appreciation for his big brother, Rantaro, evidenced by the adorably framed photo of the two on Ranjiro's desk. A flashback even reveals that Rantaro not only taught him how to beyblade, but even gave him his old Raging Roktavor bey. Aww.
- Mr. Muraki, the same BeyTrainer who created Rantaro's Berserk Roktavor, helping his brother upgrade his handed-down Raging Roktavor into Crash Roktavor.
- The fact that Ranjiro and Tobisuke were already good friends even before their team was formed.
- Turbo Episode 9: Aiger and Nika sticking up for Toko after Suoh conveys disappointment that he isn't like his older brother. After the match, Toko thanks Aiger for doing so, and declares that someday people will know him for being more than just Valt's little brother.
- Turbo Episode 12: Hae-jin telling his archery trainers that he was able to get his concentration back because of his friend, Aiger. Beforehand, Hae-jin's trainers were exasperated that he was losing focus due to Beyblade, but changed their minds after witnessing his battle with Aiger. We also get to see Hae-jin smile for real while leaving with his trainers, but Aiger unfortunately doesn't.
- Turbo Episode 17: Naru, Gumita and Tobisuke stowing away on the cruise ship because they wanted to help support Aiger and Ranjiro is both heartwarming and funny.
- Meta Example: Xavier Bogard's Japanese voice actor, Natsuki Hanae, has been a fan of Beyblade since childhood, and getting the chance to voice a character on the show must've been a dream come true for him.
- Turbo Episode 20: Through a flashback, we have Shu telling Fubuki that Beyblade isn't just about practice and hard work. It's also about having fun. And Shu knows this because a friend taught him that. And who was that friend? Valt Aoi himself!
- Turbo Episode 21: In contrast to her usual apathetic attitude, Gumita attempts to convince Suoh to work with Ranjiro for their upcoming tag-team battle. It doesn't work, of course, but she definitely deserves kudos for her efforts, and it shows that she's a kind-hearted person deep down.
- Turbo Episode 31: No matter what happens, Ranjiro will look out for Aiger, even as the latter struggles with his dark resonance. He shows this particularly by tagging along with Aiger as he goes off to a mysterious place known only as the Dread Tower.
- Turbo Episode 32: Free actively helping Valt master his newly reforged Turbo Valtryek bey. He's really come a long way since Evolution.
- Turbo Episode 35: The fact that Shu's reaction to seeing Valt again (for what is implied to be after a long time) is to smile and run over to him. Given the events of last season, this scene was much needed.
- Turbo Episode 38: Shu traveling all the way back to Japan with Aiger to help him restore Achilles. As the manager of the Raging Bulls, you can imagine that he must be extremely busy, yet he decides to lend a hand regardless after seeing how devastated Aiger was.
- Becomes even more poignant since Shu knows from experience what it's like to be consumed by one's desire for power.
- Turbo Episode 39:
- Kit calling Valt his "aniki". Aniki is a Japanese term meaning "older brother"note , and is a friendly way of referring to a superior or older person that someone greatly respects/admires. This becomes all the more heartwarming when one remembers that Kit is an only child, so he most likely does see Valt as the big brother he never had.
- Also, taped to the wall of the roof of the school is a picture of Valt and all of his old friends, a nice and sweet reminder of old times.
- Turbo Episode 42:
- Principal Shinoda unveils a new double-decker Turbo Stadium, not just for the Beigoma Academy Bey Club, but for the Wild Bey Gang as well.
- Suoh congratulating Toko for winning the Battle Royale.
- This episode strongly implies that Fubuki and Suoh are back to being friends again, as they talk about they've both changed, and join in on Aiger and Ranjiro's battle at the end.
- Turbo Episodes 44 & 45 feature Aiger going on a training journey in order to further strengthen the bond between him and Turbo Achilles. The fact in and itself that he's willing to become a true Blader says a lot about how far he's come since not just the first episode, but also his time when he was corrupted. His first stop is Xavier's home island, where he's treated to a red-carpet welcome, as well as a delicious feast. Xavier may be a prince, but that hasn't affected his personality at all. Then, Aiger touches down in Africa, where he and Laban share a laugh after a humorous greeting.
- Additionally, Xavier and Laban both teach Aiger an important lesson during each of their battles. Xavier taught Aiger about focusing on what's in front of you, while Laban's lesson is about not holding back and giving it your all.
- Turbo Episodes 43 & 47 both had big tear jerkers of Geist Fafnir and Turbo Spryzen being shattered by Phi, but they also had Valt challenging the former in order to avenge Free and Shu, showing just how far he's willing to go in order to be there for his friends.
- Turbo Episode 51: After all the pain of this season, seeing Hyde and Phi start to get along is a major heartwarming moment. While there may always be a wall between the brothers due to their past, it's just nice seeing things start to change.
- Ichika comforting her brother after his loss to Lodin. They may be on rival teams, but they actually do care about each other.
- Rise Episode 19: Pot introducing the Victories to his dojo-buddies, then ordering said buddies to treat them to an extravagant feast.
