Beyblade: Metal Fusion, or also known as Metal Fight Beyblade (メタルファイトベイブレード Metarufaitobeiburēdo) in Japan and other Asia regions, is the first anime of the Metal Saga. It was succeeded by Beyblade: Metal Masters (Metal Fight Beyblade Explosion)


Beyblade: Metal Fusion is adapted from the first four volumes of the manga, Metal Fight Beyblade. The manga the anime is based on was a reboot of the Beyblade franchise. As such, both anime and manga have nothing to do with the Bakuten Shoot Beyblade series before it.

Comparison with the Original Series

  • The Metal Saga consists of a whole new set of characters and a new storyline.
  • Similar to the previous work, Metal Fusion uses constellation-based motifs (Original Series: (Four Sacred Beasts)).
  • Unlike the previous work, that consisted mostly of team battles, this work features mostly individual battles. Furthermore, Japan was the primary setting for the Original Series.
  • In the English dub, Beyblades are now referred to as "Beys" instead of "Blades", following the Japanese version of the Bakuten Shoot Beyblade anime series
  • The spirits in Beyblades are known as avatars (same goes to Burst), while the Original Series called them Bit-Beasts.


  • April 5, 2009: Beyblade: Metal Fusion began broadcasting on TV Tokyo.
  • It aired in the US on Saturdays at 7:30 on Cartoon Network.
  • Metal Fusion is currently available for streaming at Netflix.


  • 2008: Development for a new mixed-media project began, following the conclusion of the Original Series. This included both a manga and anime series.
