BeyWheelz: Powered by Beyblade, commonly referred to as BeyWheelz is a anime mini-series based on the |side-toyline, Hasbro toyline, BeyWheelz. It was commissioned by Nelvana and is produced by Synergy SP and d-rights.
The series does not follow the current, Metal Saga and instead takes place in a completely different universe where Bladers are called Wheelers and use BeyWheelz, fly-wheel versions of existing Beyblades.
It was created due to the fact, Beyblade: Metal Fury was cut to thirteen minutes beginning with its 27th episode, The Lion Going Into The Wilderness in order to share its time-slot with Cross Fight B-Daman. With this as a backdrop, all international versions of Metal Fury will consist of 39 thirty-minute episodes with BeyWheelz as an extra 13-episodes to finish off the series with 52 episodes.
The exciting new BEYWHEELZ chapter, which takes place in the futuristic city of Destection, where our hero, Sho, is champion of the BEYWHEELZ World Tournament! This peaceful city is home to exciting and challenging battles between friends and allies until suddenly the city is attacked by an evil BEYWHEELZ army called the Dominators.

Season 2 (BeyRaiderz)
BeyWheelz has originally been confirmed for another season of thirteen episodes to fill the gap created by the Beyblade: Shogun Steel episodes. While for a few months there was a lot of speculation over the season being cancelled, due to none of the announced series names mentioning Beywheelz, on October 2nd 2013 a promotional picture surfaced, featuring the protagonist Sho Tenma. Thereby BeyRaiderz was confirmed as the second Beywheelz season.
The BeyWheelz series was unveiled at Hasbro's place at the 2012 Toy Fair as a poster of concept art. Information was issued at the event, including that a BeyWheelz toyline would exist, and that this anime would last for thirteen episodes, to fill in for the 13 episodes that were missing from the Beyblade: Metal Fury season.
BeyWheelz will air before Metal Fury starts, and is considered episodes 142-154 of the Metal Saga in the English dub. The series features new characters, and is unrelated to the previous anime. Various characters pay much resemblance to Metal Saga characters, such as Yuki Mizusawa, Benkei Hanawa, and Reiji Mizuchi.
