With his ego out of control, Tyson takes on the attitude of a rock star, which upsets Kenny who tries to keep him focused on blading and not his popularity. Meanwhile, at a local playground, the local kids are all out Beyblading when Tyson spots a kid called Nicky, being smoked in the Beystadium by a bully named Riley. After Nicky's blade is completely destroyed, Tyson vows to help the kid fix it and fight his way back. After enlisting the help of Max, Kenny and Dizzi, Tyson manages to rebuild Nicky's blade and they return to the playground where they find Riley and immediately demand a rematch. Needless to say, with the knowledge of the Bladebreakers backing Nicky, he quickly takes care of Riley who learns a harsh, but vital life lesson on being a bully. Meanwhile, in a conspiratorial meeting at Kai's grandfather's mansion, he spells out Kai's next assignment.
