The Beyblading Spirit (愛だ…!, It's Love…!) is the forty-eighth episode of Beyblade: G-Revolution.


Kai managed to break out of Brooklyn's black hole, but he still gets heavily beaten by Brooklyn. Kenny's laptop detects multiple damages on Dranzer and he ultimately closes the computer, admitting Kai won't stand any more chances. Ray and Max then head for the dish and try to stop the fight to save Kai, but Tyson blocks their way and, in tears, begs them not to intervene in Kai's own battle.

Brooklyn uses his special attack, King of Darkness on Kai. In the middle of the attack's cutscene, Tyson's hand reach for Kai, and he manages to escape it. Nevertheless, he passes out. DJ Jazzman declares Brooklyn the winner, but Dranzer is still spinning and Kai gets back up again. Brooklyn is impressed, but still confident of victory and continues to brutally hit Kai. However, every time he hits Kai, the G Revolutions member gets back up again. Brooklyn notices he is sweating for the first time in his life and decides to attack with everything he's got. But Kai still resists.

Eventually, Brooklyn goes insane due to Kai's resistence and starts releasing dark beams of energy in all directions. Kai still manages to hold on, and Kai explains that he always learns something from his battles and that Brooklyn lacks the "beyblading spirit". Kai then unleashes his final attack and knocks a damaged Zeus out of the dish, winning the match. Brooklyn's teammates are surprised their friend lost, and Brooklyn stares stunned and confused at his beyblade after suffering his very first beyblade defeat. Hiro tells the BEGA Bladers not to feel sorry as Brooklyn is now learning to understand the true meaning of Beyblading.

Kai assures his concerned team mates that he is all right despite the beating he suffered and tells Tyson that he should be more concerned with his upcoming battle against Garland. Tyson shrugs Kai's advice off but secretly hopes he can summon the same amazing strength that his old friend showed in his battle.

This episode has two different endings, depending on whether it's the original or the altered English dub. In both endings, Kai walks away into the corridor, kneels down by a wall, reflects on his battle and his team mates, then drops his Dranzer and the beyblade begins cracking, until it explodes in dozens of small pieces.

In the original, Kai doesn't say a thing as Dranzer is destroyed, and Tala is shown at the hospital shedding some tears while still unconscious.

In the English dub, Kai tells Dranzer it is free to go, that his beyblading days are over, and he thanks Tyson after images of his team mates are shown. He stares at his own fist which followed by an image of Kai smiling.
