Showdown in Vegas (開幕!アメリカ大会, Opening! American Tournament) is the twenty-third episode of Beyblade: 2000.
The Bladebreakers arrive in Las Vegas for the start of the American Tournament. Tyson looks forward to facing off against the arrogant All Starz and their scientifically advanced Beyblades. Tyson is enjoying his new Dragoon Fantom blade upgraded by Kenny.
As it turns out, if the Bladebreakers and All Starz beat their facing teams, they get to face each other in the finals. The Bladebreakers' first match is against the Renegades.

He decided battle so that Emily would have a "chance" to analyze his skills. The Bladebreakers beat the Renegades with three straight wins.
