Chao Xin is taking a walk with his band of fangirls. However, he hears a disruption near them. Chao Xin abruptly leaves them and jumps onto the roof of houses to find out what the commotion is. He finds expelled Beylin Bladers attempting to attack innocent boys. Just when Chao is about to launch his Bey to stop the two Bladers, another Bey is launched instead. It knocks out the two Bladers in a crimson red hue and returns to its owner. Chao finds a group of mysterious Bladers, all wearing robes. They have small grins on their faces and leave, prompting Chao to question what is going on. Meanwhile, Gingka and Co. are traveling on a quest to China. Gingka and Co. received a message via webchat by Dashan Wang who tells them about a rumor. The rumour is that an anonymous Blader who defeated a former disciple was expelled from the Bey Forest Temple and has caused trouble in a town. They travel to Dashan's place judging on whether it is a Legendary Blader or not. As they arrive, they have a reunion with Team Wang Hu Zhong, Dashan Wang, Mei Mei and Chi-yun Li, however Chao Xin is not there at the moment. Gingka shows his Cosmic Pegasus to them. The team is amazed as the Bey while Kyoya does not think it is that impressive. Gingka and Co. see how after the tournament, Big Bang Bladers, Team Wang Hu Zhong has started to train monks in learning how to fight in order to beat Gingka some day. Dashan then tells them that the anonymous Blader might be participating in a tag-tournamnet just a few days away, called the "Gateway to Success". Kyoya then leaves to do some training. Gingka decides to have a little training as he launches Pegasus. Pegasus knocks out practice targets and finishes off in a success. Yuki decides to go out an try it with his Anubius but fails as he misses one target. He tries again but fails. Gingka and Co. congratulate him despite his failure. Chi-yun wondered how he could have been a Legendary Blader with such little skill, but Dashan noted that the targets Yuki did hit had all been hit at the very center. Later everyone has dinner as they have a chat. Chi-yun leaves when he has to discuss something outside. Dashan follows him and asks what's wrong. Chi-yun tells him that if someone like Yuki can be a Legendary Blader, he wondered why he couldn't be a Legendary Blader. However, an explosion occurs nearby with everyone heading there. As they arrive they find none other than Johannes. Johannes is searching for the Legendary Bladers and asks for someone to battle with. Dashan steps forward and challenges him. They battle in one of Dashan's homemade BeyStadiums. They both let it rip as their Beys fight each other: Dashan's Rock Zurafa against Johannes' Beat Lynx. Johannes beats down Rock Zurafa by launching it into the air. Dashan uses his inner strength to fight back but and bring the match to his favor using his new special move but as Beat Lynx is still spinning, Johannes gets tired and finds the match is going no where so he summons his Lynx back, forfeiting the battle. The rest of Team Wang Hu Zhong prepare to launch their Beys at Johannes but he leaves them. Chao returns to tell them of what he has seen. A Bey with a crimson red hue knocking out two Bladers by a mysterious group of people wearing robes, raising questions on who they are. The next day, Johannes is eating some food and wondering what he would do since he is planning to join the tournament and needs a partner as he finds a group of children Beyblading. He offers to be their partner but they run away in fear. One boy remains and when he asks if he wants to join him, the boy cries leading to his mother coming and taking her son away. Johannes later spots some mysterious Bladers wearing robes and one, holding a Bey with a crimson red hue. Johannes decides to go and investigate this.
