|Character Listing - Category|
Brooklyn is the strongest beyblader not only in the BEGA League but in the whole world. He is a naturally gifted beyblader and doesn't need to practice to hone his skills. There are two sides to his personality. First, the calm and seemingly gentle and very kind side and then the psychotic and aggressive side.
He defeated Kai like child's play in their first match and obliterated Dranzer. Though lost by a narrow margin in their second match when Kai sacrificed Dranzer and even risked his life to take the match. In this battle Dranzer was shattered to countles pieces inspite of being created by hard metal and Brooklyn's blade was just of normal kind.
He went under frustation because he has never lost any battle before and due to this his dark side took over the good side and he became far more powerful than he was already before. It can be clearly seen in his final battle against Tyson which is most epic and devastating beybattle ever. Even battles of new beyblade series looks nothing infront of that battle. He was angry with the limitations of the battle stating they he refuses to take part in this outdated form of battling. He was enraged to the point he combined the Dark powers within his bey Zues with his own Psychic powers, and generate a new stronger power, and attempted to create a new world.
Brooklyn destroyed beystadium with the blink of an eye and then created his own world and a whole new dimension. He also used the same power to give him self dark angelic wings, saying that he could transform himself into something from their worst nightmares. He also created a wormhole which acted as a gateway to his dimension. He states that in his dimension they can have the ultimate battle, without limits. It covered entire earth and pulled everythig like buildings, huge battleships, jet planes and all people present in the stadium and send them all to his world. It also caused destruction in whole earth. Militry tried to stop him but he one shotted them with a wave of his hand. Tyson need to borrow powers and bit beats from Kai, Rei, Max, Daichi and Tala to stand up to him. The result of battle is not shown so it is considered to be a draw. He is one with his Bit-Beast. He is an extremely talented beyblader.
Brooklyn's childhood reflected strongly in his personality. Because he always won, the other children did not want to play with him so he was often left alone- his genius isolated him. During Brooklyn's beyblade match with Tyson, because of Kai defeating him, he became insane. Brooklyn has always bladed using only his natural ability. Because that was good enough to win, he never put much energy into his matches. He realizes that, by using the combined powers of his emotions and abilities, he can have unimaginable power. Eventually, all his negative emotions reach their peak, especially his annoyance, frustration and sadness. These mix with the power of his Bit-Beast, Zeus, and using this darkness, he creates a black hole that proceeds to ravage and devour the entire world and everyone in it into his soul. Thus, he declares himself a god. He only calms down once Tyson explains to him the true meaning of beyblading, using the power of the Bit-Beasts of all the teams who appeared in Beyblade G-Revolution (G-Revolutions, PPB All Starz, White Tigers X, Blitzkrieg Boyz, F-Dynasty, Barthez Soldiers and the remaining bladers of the BEGA Justice 5) to dispel Zeus's darkness, returning the world to normal, albeit heavily ravaged. Once the chaos had passed, Tyson and Brooklyn continue their battle as it should have been, a friendly competition, free from the exploitation of the now disgraced Boris. The end of the fight is unknown, as the last scene shows both beyblades going up towards the sky, and then Tyson's cap and a feather from the wings of Brooklyn falling from where the beyblades had just gone.
The most important aspect to know about Brooklyn is that he is a natural beyblade genius. It is as if he was born with the required talent to beat any opponent he might have to face. All he needed was to be taught the basic moves, such as how to launch a beyblade correctly, which is perhaps the only thing Hitoshi, his trainer, might have taught him: Brooklyn being a fervent admirer of nature, he would rather spend all his time outside, lying in the grass and taking care of any bug or animal around him, than staying inside a building with next to no view of the environment, learning strategies or simply training.
In fact, Brooklyn barely trains. During his time relaxing in the grass, he has 'visions' of how an upcoming battle is going to end. For instance, he predicted how Mystel's fight against Max was going to happen, and therefore saw no reason to assist to such repetition.
Brooklyn appeared in the anime mostly out of nowhere. Perhaps was he found by some BEGA staff who saw a lot of potential in him and asked him to join; otherwise he does not seem like the type of blader spending his time blading for a team. He just showed up without any preparation, participated to the qualification matches and demonstrated to his opponent, Kai in this case, what amount of power he possesses.
This BEGA team player uses a very non-physical type of battle strategy at first. Up until episode 49, he mostly lets Zeus fight by itself because he knows they are going to win. Zeus, though, inflicts a lot of damage to the opponent, as seen by the condition Kai was in after their first battle in episodes 41 and 42: on the ground, bloody cuts everywhere on his body and paramedics all around him to check if he was alright. Most of the damage is done through Brooklyn's special attack, King of Darkness, which is illustrated as being the result of Brooklyn having the definite upper hand while the opponent is just loosing more and more advantage the more they struggle against the inevitable (hence the metaphor that Kai is drowning in some black water while Brooklyn is floating safely above it). Brooklyn then announces his attack (or, as in the Japanese version, he says "Sayonara ~ King of Darkness") and Zeus appears out of a swirl of black fog that appeared from behind Brooklyn.
After Kai had his revenge in episode 48 though, Brooklyn realized that he was not as good as he had thought he was and that his visions were useless. Kai had even made him sweat, something he never did in any previous battle; he would usually stay very calm and even smile at his opponent as if he found their struggle funny. After spending some days in a shocked trance, Hitoshi made him understand that he had to use his frustration against his next enemy instead of relying on sheer talent. Although he was reluctant, even scared, at first, that only caused Brooklyn to become mad and want to destroy whatever got in his way. In his match against Tyson, he used the dark depths of his own mind to create a fallen city: destroyed buildings, himself flying with black wings, a dark, foggy sky spread across the whole world, etc.
The cause to Brooklyn's moral misery, which made the dark world, is that, during his childhood, people used to reject him for his talents, since everybody else usually has to work hard to reach their goal while he was seen as some kind of monster for being there already. Therefore, he was left alone, on swings sometimes, to contemplate his life while the other children had fun elsewhere.

Beyblade & Bit-Beast
Brooklyn's beyblade Zeus is a black beyblade that has the Bit-Beast Zeus within it. It has an attack style that Brooklyn never usually commands. It has the ability to copy the opponents beyblade and easily predict its next move. The Bit-Beast Zeus is very powerful, being able to crush opponents with relative ease.
