Takao and Kyojyu meet Max Mizuhara (Max Tate in the English dub and the versions based on it), the new kid in town, just before a puppy is washed away to a waterfall. Takao attempts to save him, but fails. Max then tries, and succeeds. Max and Takao battle in Max’s dad’s shop, but Max wins, due to his defensive-type Beyblade. Daitokuji Kaichou (president of the BBA (Beyblade Battle Association), named Stanley A. Dickinson in the English dub and the versions based on it) then arrives and informs them of the Beyblade Battle Tournament, and they are all looking forward to it. Kyojyu and Takao argue over Takao’s cockiness that his Bey need not be improved. Takao then attempts to control the Dragoon, and succeeds, while Kyojyu is watching through the window. They then become friends again.
