Beyblade Wiki

Bladin' in the Streets (結成! BBAチーム、世界へ, Formation! BBA Team to the World) is the eighth episode of Beyblade: 2000.


As Tyson, Kai, Max, Kenny, and Ray fly to Hong Kong to prepare for the Asian Tournament, Kai "quits" the team and walks into the streets.

As the others search for Kai, a mysterious blader has his eye on the team, particularly Ray.

The rest of the team try to follow him and fail when they hear a Bey spinning, and find the back-alley Blader named Bruce challenging them to a battle. Tyson battles Bruce and manages to just defeat him, when another Beyblade, which belongs to Kevin, knocks Dragoon out of the stadium and nearly hits Ray, but Kai reappears and knocks Dragoon out of the former's way.

The episode ends with Kevin introducing himself to the team.

English Language Adaptation[]

The following are some of the changes made to this episode in the English language adaptation of the series originally in Japanese.

  • Only in the English version are Kai and the figure grandson and grandfather.
  • Some character voicings were added to Tyson's late flight arrival in the English version.


  • The original series show a preview of the next episode after the end of each episode. In this episode 8, the preview of episode 9 shows Sacred Beast Garman (bit-beast Galman) with a different color than the one that it actually comes to have in episode 9. Furthermore, a glow obfuscates Max in the preview, also differently from the actual episode.
