Beyblade Wiki

The Hawk Has Landed (舞い降りし鷹, Maiori shitaka) is the eleventh episode of the Beyblade: Shogun Steel season and the 165th episode of Metal Saga. It aired on June 17, 2012 in Japan.


Zyro Kurogane, Maru, Shinobu Hiryūin, the Unabara brothers enter a Beyblading park where a training session hosted by Benkei Hanawa to strengthen their skills is about to begin. Ren Kurenai however, interrupts them as she decides to join in it too. Benkei explains the session to everyone as Eight goes rambling about his opinion at the training, at hand. Benkei explains that Synchrom is forbidden, shocking everyone else, including Maru, who wanted to collect data on an "Orojya Ifraid" combination.

The training unfolds with a battle between Shinobu and Ren. The battle seems very one-sided, with Shinobu putting in no effort and knocking Phoenic out quickly, thinking of how to create his own Special Move to contest with Zyro.

Zyro trains his Bey's reflexes by steering around the boulders and hitting the bulls-eye. Benkei realizes he is late for work and dashes off, with Kite losing all his stamina and collapsing, leaving a bucket to cover his face with water.

Later, the gang travel to Benkei's burger shop when much to their surprise, they find a very busy day for them. Benkei asks that Zyro, Maru and Ren help him for the evening and get a free meal afterwards. While preparing, Ren spots the key to the local BeyPark hanging up and quickly grabs it, being as discreet as possible in the process.

After the work is done, Ren immediately leaves, puzzling Benkei, who thought she would at least stay and have a meal on the house. Zyro expresses concern as she leaves.

Shinobu begins training against a boulder, trying to increase his strength for a Special Move. However, Saramanda quickly spins out with barrage attacks, much to his dismay. Nonetheless, he continues his training with his goal in mind.

Ren enters the BeyPark using her stolen key. After running onto the platform and launching, Ren begins training her Phoenic's speed around the stadium, taking joy in being able to practice alone in the Zero-G Stadium.

A boy walks in and observes Ren, mistaking her for Zyro. Ren becomes annoyed as the boy explains that he plans to challenge Zyro to a battle soon and intends on winning. The boy then goes to walk away, but is stopped by Ren, who challenges him to a battle.

Benkei walks out into the back room of Bull Burger and notices that the key has been stolen. Enraged, he shouts at the top of his voice, while elsewhere Takanosuke and Ren begin their battle by launching.
