Run, Gingka! (走れ! 銀河, Hashire! Ginga) is the thirty-eighth episode of Beyblade: Metal Fusion and the thirty-eighth episode of the Metal Saga overall.


Kenta Yumiya, Benkei Hanawa, Hikaru Hasama, and Hyoma win challenge matches and earn enough points to get into Battle Bladers. Benkei cheers and tells Kyoya Tategami he did it while Kyoya watches with a smile. They all return to the B-Pit with their 50,000 points for Battle Bladers. Osamu Taskishi and Akria tell the group that they wont be able to get in. Gingka Hagane also returns, but is still 3,000 points short of the 50,000 needed. Unfortunately, all the qualifying tournaments have finished. Kenta suggests battling the others for their extra points but Gingka declines saying he does not want to use them to get into Battle Bladers. Madoka finds one last tournament that was rescheduled for today where Gingka can make up the missing points. As the gang hurry to the train station, they are stopped by Tsubasa.

The group accuses Tsubasa of thwarting Gingka on behalf of Dark Nebula but he tells them he is no longer with them and continues to bait Gingka into a battle. Kenta reminds Gingka that he must focus on getting the points he needs in order to defeat Ryuga. The others agree and insist on Gingka leaving them behind while they take care of Tsubasa. Gingka agrees grateful to his friends. Tsubasa mulls over whether he'll accept the group's challenge, remembering his prior conversation with Phoenix shortly after Phoenix rescued him from Dark Nebula and revealing that he was fully aware of Tsubasa's true mission and identity but that Tsubasa lacked the power that Gingka had to beat Ryuga for good. The key was to know Gingka's friends. While Tsubasa is deciding whether to battle Gingka's friends, Phoenix is in the distance on top of a nearby building, watching the current exchange with Tsubasa and Gingka's friends. Tsubasa heeds Phoenix's earlier words and agrees to challenge.

Hikaru starts but is quickly defeated. Benkei begins to battle but again is also defeated by Tsubasa. Hyoma begins to battle but instead of fighting to win, he dodges Eagle's attacks in order to stall for extra time to allow Gingka to make it to the tournament. In the end, he is defeated. Finally, Kenta is left. He battles fiercely but loses. Undeterred, Kenta challenges Tsubasa for one more battle laying all his Bey points on the line. Tsubasa is surprised and asks why Kenta would do that. Kenta would rather sacrifice his points to give Gingka the opportunity to compete at Battle Bladers. As their Beys are about to make initial contact, Storm Pegasus shoots in and stops the fight. Gingka expresses his gratitude for his friends' willingness to help him reach Battle Bladers to defeat Ryuga but he wasn't willing to do it at their expense. He then challenges Tsubasa to a battle but Tsubasa laughs and demands to know how his friends are linked to his source of power. Gingka is completely taken aback by the question. Phoenix arrives and tells Tsubasa since he still doesn't understand the meaning of his advice, he'll show him. He then, challenges Gingka to a battle. Doji looks at Phoenix's location and finds out that it is in Komba village.

Special Moves used


  • Although Pegasus is the featured bey Gingka does not battle in this episode. That being said he would have battled Tsubasa had his friends not stepped in.
  • Tsubasa shows how strong he is by beating Kenta Hyoma Hikaru and Benkei.
  • Even if Gingka had battled Kenta, Benkei, Hyoma and Hikaru for their extra points, he still would not have reached 50,000 points since their collective extra points were less than 3,000 points.
