Takao and Jin start a fight and Jin reveals his bit-beast is Death Driger (Metal Driger in the English dub and versions based on it), but this doesn't surprise anyone as it happened with Daichi revealing Gaia Dragoon. Daichi immediately joins the fight and both take on Takao. Rei feels forced to interfere as well to aid Takao. The four beyblades head for an all-out attack against each other when Max shows up and tells them to stop. Jin knocks his three opponents out, takes his blade and leaves. Max then announces that the BBA has just announced the World Championshhip. Kaichou called a press conference to inform all Bladers that this year there will be an twist in the tournament. Tag teams will represent the final teams in the championships and Takao is very excited. Daichi follows Takao home and demands him a rematch. Takao's Grandfather shows up and invites Daichi for dinner and to sleep. Meanwhile, Max receive a letter from his mother and Rei thinks over the championship at the park where Daichi challenged Takao. The next day, Takao and Kyojyu meet Rei and Max at a training facility and they announce they have decided to leave the Bladebreakers and represent their hometown teams (Baihuzu and All Starz, respectively). Takao is shocked by the news and confronts his friends but reluctantly agrees to let them go, not without reminding them that they'll still be friends no matter what.
