Release Date: 2002
Beyblade: The Movie - Fierce Battle, released as Explosive Shooting Beyblade The Movie: Battle!! Takao VS Daichi (爆転シュート ベイブレード THE MOVIE 激闘!!タカオVS大地, Bakuten Shūto Beiburedo THE MOVIE: Gekitou!! Takao VS Daichi?) in Japan, is chronologically set between the end of the second season and before the third season. The prequel to the movie was introduced in Volume 14 of the Beyblade manga to promote the movie. The story begins with the Blade Breakers enjoying their vacation with Tyson, Hilary and Kenny's teacher Ms. Kincaid, but are followed by an annoying kid named Daichi who wants a rematch from a humiliating defeat earlier in a tournament final against Tyson. Tyson Granger decides to ignore Daichi, but they finally have their rematch on a boat after he learns Daichi's reason he beyblades (His father gave him his beyblade and told him to become the best.). Meanwhile, an organization called the Shadow Bladers are intent on destroying the world using their Dark Bit-Beasts. After they capture Daichi and his bit-beast Strata Dragoon, the Dark Bit-Beast possess Daichi and use him for world domination. Tyson tries to save Daichi but ends up getting his bit-beast Dragoon sealed into stone where the dark bit-beasts were sealed away before, and the Shadow Bladers trap Tyson in a cave with Dragoon. Shortly after this, the Shadow Bladers start to attack Japan, where Kai is (Since he didn't come with the Bladebreakers on their vacation.). Dragoon, inspired by Tyson's will to escape, manages to free itself and Tyson from the cave. Meanwhile, Kai tries to fight off the Shadow Bladers but is quickly overwhelmed. The rest of the Bladebreakers come to Kai's aid and fight the Shadow Bladers, finding that the dark bit-beasts are shadow versions of their own bit-beasts. It should be an even match, but with a possessed Daichi on the Shadow Bladers side, the Bladerbreakers are outnumbered. Kai, Ray and Max charge the Shadow Bladers and defeat two of the five, but are knocked out in the process. Tyson manages to free Daichi from the Shadow Bladers, but seeing as Daichi was possessed at the time, he can't summon Strata Dragoon. Tyson tells him to connect with his bit-beast, which Daichi does and manages to call out Strata Dragoon. As Kai, Ray and Max awaken, Tyson and Daichi manage to stop the Shadow Bladers and save the world. It turns out the dark bit-beasts had possessed four children who had been near the cave when they were freed. The Bladebreakers then seal the dark bit-beasts in the cave, and as they do, the island the cave is on starts to sink. The Bladebreakers manage to get off the island in time, but Tyson is still tormented by Daichi who still wants to battle him.
