The Best Beybladers

Those of us around in the early 2000s remember Beyblade's burst of popularity, temporarily rivaling other Japanese-produced cartoons like Pokémon. Hey, making an entire world based around spinning tops might sound silly, but is it really less believable than Yu-Gi-Oh's card-dueling?

Although the series isn't as renowned as it once was, it maintains a respectable fanbase and is still producing new anime that totally aren't just extended commercials for their toys—which characters reign supreme? These are the ten strongest beybladers!

Phi in Turbo

10. Phi

Series: Beyblade Burst Turbo
Beyblade: Dread Phoenix

Turbo's main antagonist masquerades as a noble man, but is secretly a psychotic and ruthless villain. His impressive record includes wins against protagonist Aiger Akabane (who does ultimately defeat him), rival Shu Kurenai, and even the renowned Free De La Hoya.

Ozuma in V-Force

9. Ozuma

Series: Beyblade: V-Force
Beyblade: Flash Leopard

Ozuma proves that Kai isn't original protagonist Tyson's only competition. In their numerous matches, Ozuma beats Tyson thrice while losing and drawing once, showcasing his fierce skills. He'd rank higher if not for his lost against Zeo Zagart, who, for what it's worth, Tyson never lost to.

Tyson and Dragoon

8. Tyson Granger

Series: Beyblade
Beyblade: Dragoon

The original blader himself, Tyson is loosely based on Red from Pokémon, While Tyson wins most of his fights and deserves mention, his record is a bit spotty even discounting series-mandated rival losses, similarly falling against characters like Kevin, Ray Kon, Antonio, and more.

Kai and Dranzer

7. Kai Hiwatari

Series: Beyblade
Beyblade: Dranzer

The cool counterpart to Tyson's energetic confidence, Kai provides a constant challenge to Tyson throughout their series. Fans still debate which reigns supreme; many of their final matches were interrupted or didn't reveal the result. Kai carries a formidable win record, but he's not invincible, having also lost to Broolyn, Johnny McGregor, and Spencer.

Shu and Spryzen

6. Shu Kurenai

Series: Beyblade Burst
Beyblade: Spryzen

Here's a case where the rival completely outshines the protagonist (Valt), carrying a much stronger win record. Shu formerly adopted the villainous role of Red Eye, but has since come to his senses. He's only lost to Valt, Lui, and Free, and he's evened the score against Valt and Lui, conquering dozens of other foes in the meantime.

Gingka and Pegasus

5. Gingka Hagane

Series: Beyblade: Metal Fusion
Beyblade: Pegasus

Gingka's easily one of the strongest heroes, defeating 100 opponents at once in his debut episode. Unlike other protagonists, he's also never lost to his main rival (Kyoya), and he has an extensive win record with few defeats. Even then, half his losses are flukes more than true defeats, like Argo's surprise attack.

Plus, Gingka tends to win rematches against the rare foe who bests him, including opponents like Phoenix, Ryuga, and Rago.

Lui and Longinus

4. Lui Shirosagi

Series: Beyblade Burst
Beyblade: Luinor

A world-renowned champion after winning five national championships in a row, Lui ranks remarkably high for someone who isn't the main protagonist, rival, or villain of his series. In fact, he's beaten Valt thrice without ever losing to him, and the only three people that have ever beaten Lui (Shu, Free, and Aiger) have all lost to him at least once.

Ryuga and L-Drago
Ryuga and L-Drago

3. Ryuga

Series: Beyblade: Metal Fusion
Beyblade: L-Drago

Discounting the time L-Drago's powers were taken by Rago, Dragon Emperor Ryuga has only ever lost to Gingka—who he's also beaten multiple times. That's an amazing ratio considering how many battles Ryuga participates in, chalking up impressive wins against Tsubasa, Doji, and even Ryo Hagane (Gingka's father).

Sakyo and Ronin Dragoon

2. Sakyo Kurayami

Series: Beyblade: Shogun Steel
Beyblade: Ronin Dragoon

Successor Dragon Emperor Sakyo has one loss to his name, and of course, it's against Shogun Steel protagonist Zyro Kurogane. But Sakyo won every other match he ever entered, no draws or indecisive results, including a prior bout with Zyro and a fight against rival Shinobu.

Sadly, we never got to see Sakyo square off against antagonist Kira Hayama, but considering Sakyo's win record, it's more than possible he would have won despite Kira's Evil Gene-boosted powers.

Free De La Hoya
Free De La Hoya

1. Free De La Hoya

Series: Beyblade Burst Evolution
Beyblade: Fafnir

Free rightfully earns his reputation as the best blader in the world, carrying a remarkable win record for someone who doesn't have hero/rival/villain plot armor. That's especially true considering the number of skilled characters Free faces, including two protagonists (Valt and Aiger), Shu, Lui, and Phi.

Free has lost to Valt, Lui, and Phi, but he's beaten Valt ten times, defeated Lui, and is the only character Aiger faced but never defeated in Turbo.

BeyWheelz Characters

Ranking the best beybladers isn't easy since half the time, X beats Y who beats Z who beats X, but hopefully today's list helps clear the air. Characters like Sho Tenma from spin-off BeyWheelz also deserve mention, but for now, as we await more Hasbro-selling heroes, vote for your favorite blader and I'll see you at our next anime countdown!
