Darkness at the End of the Tunnel... (強襲! 闇のブレーダー!, Assault! The Dark Bladers!) is the thirty-second episode of Beyblade: 2000.
After their train is mysteriously hijacked, the kids find themselves in the dark recesses of a tunnel. This is where the Bladebreakers meet a foursome of zombie-like ghouls, the Dark Bladers. Cenotaph grabs Kenny and his three team mates challenge the Bladebreakers for a fight in order to release Kenny. However, if they lose, they'll have their bit beasts captured.
Max and Tyson face off against Sanguinex and Lupinex, respectively a vampire and a werewolf. By making an "X" sign with their Beyblades, they manage to beat Sanguinex, since vampires are scared of crosses. Ray then joins in with a silver coin attached to his Beyblade in order to unleash a silver-version of Driger that weakens Lupinex's blade.
When Cenotaph and Zomb are just about to start their rounds, an ambulance arrives, forcing the Dark Bladers to flee.
