Fortunes Dear and Dire (悪のパーツ狩り, The Evil Parts Hunt) is the forty-second episode of Beyblade: V-Force.
Zeo focuses on Beyblade training with his father Zagart. The most powerful rock Bit-Beast named Cerberus is designated for Zeo, but he must first be able to summon it. Zeo trains furiously against another Psykick recruit named Gordo, but the elusive bit-beast never fully materializes.
Meanwhile, the Bladebreakers must choose their two team-pairs for the World Beyblade Championships. Hilary brings in a pile of her fortune-telling books to help. They decide that Tyson will team with Max, and Kai with Ray. Then, they head for the preliminary rounds of the World Championship. A couple of Beybladers are seen watching the games and saying the competing Bladers are "amateurs".
Not long afterward, Kai is training at the beach and the same pair meets him, impressed by Dranzer. They talk Kai into battling them, with Dranzer's attack ring up for grabs if they win. To Kai's surprise, not only do they have bit-beasts of their own, but they're not above tag-teaming him to avoid defeat. By the end of the battle, Dranzer is so damaged that its attack ring is useless, which sends the couple on their way empty-handed.
When Kai discusses the incident with his Bladebreaker teammates, it's discovered that they are known as King and Queen and are infamous 'parts hunters' - Blader's who search for high-end Beyblade parts from others that they can acquire for themselves.
Back at Zagart's lab, Zeo tries summoning Cerberus one last time – his 42nd attempt - and succeeds. Cerberus is a massively powerful canine bit-beast with three snarling heads that disintegrates Gordo's Beyblade against a wall. Zeo then vows to beat the Bladebreakers and acquire their Bit-Beasts.
