Beyblade: Shogun Steel

Carefully watching Zyro Kurogane's consecutive wins out of every Bey Park Blader, Akuya Onizaki and his gang appeared out of the shadows to confront Zyro. Manically laughing at Zyro, he challenged Zyro to a Beybattle, just to find out how powerful Zyro really is. He later pushed Zyro and announced to the audience that Zyro will officially lose this battle at the hands of Akuya, himself. He kept taunting Zyro, to the point where his attitude intensely freighted the crowed with Maru defending Zyro.

After launching their Beyblades, Akuya surprised Zyro when his comrades joined in to help Akuya claim the victor of this fight. Akuya's Archer Gargoyle SA165WSF faced off with Zyro's Samurai Ifrit W145CF while the Beys of Akuya's gang circled around them. They would constantly smack Ifrit, giving the Blader of Fire a difficult time. Gargole continued their motives into a sleep-out with Ifrit which caused Ifraid to be thrown back in the air.

There, after obtaining tips and confidence from Maru, he got his grip on his Bey and Ifrit became even much more powerful, delivering KO's to every other Bey until it and Gargole were left, much to Akuya's shock. Zyro then decided it was time to end it and used a Special move, Burning Upper which engulfed not only it, but also the Stadium in flames. Not able to do anything, Akuya saw Gargoyle be struck out of the Stadium and to much dismay, unable to put his money where his mouth was.

Akuya appears once again at the Bey Park Stadium Dome to make the place reserved for him and his gang. He declares that if anybody has a problem with it, they would have to deal with him. With no was of standing up to him, the other Bladers backed off. Yoshio Iwayama also appears, unaware of who invited him. After hearing about him causing chaos in the city and destroying other people's Beys, Akuya makes a suggestion and offers him to join his group to take down Zyro. Yoshio quickly rejects the offer and insults him calling him worthless. This outrages him as they both prepare for a Beybattle.

At the beginning of the battle, Akuya is surprised that his Gargoyle isn't causing any damage towards Golem. He asks for his gang members to assist him in battle. They launched their Beys in the stadium and attacks Golem which was also pointless. They became overconfident but their plan backfires as Yoshio easily defeats them. Akuya was too late to notice Golem being a defense type and unable to evade it's attack and get out of harm's way. Golem collides into a member's Bey and uses that to his advantage by pushing Gargoyle into the stadium wall trapping it and stops it from spinning. Showing no mercy, he knocks the Bey out of the stadium. Akuya rushes to pick up his Gargoyle and hopes of getting revenge again.
