Aquario's Challenge (アクアリオの挑戦, Akuario no chōsen!) is the sixth episode of the Metal Fight Beyblade anime.
The english dubbed version was first shown on May 29th, 2010 on YTV in Canada. North America aired this episode on Cartoon Network on July 11th 2010.
A new balder named Hikaru has arrived in Metal Bey City, and easily defeats Benkei and his squad of Face Hunters. Benkei asks her to defeat Gingka for him, which she agrees to after Benkei informs her Gingka is a powerful opponent. However, Gingka has a fever and cannot battle, so Kenta takes his place. Hikaru defeats Kenta over and over while Benkei looks on, and relates to how he behaved the same way against Kyoya. Hikaru's past is revealed, as she was once a weak blasder, but was given Aquario and the advice that she would not get stronger unless she battled strong opponents by her sick mother. At the end of the episode, Hikaru leaves with all of Kenta's Beypoints, and Benkei offers to train Kenta.

Differences in adaptations
- The name of Hikaru's Metal Wheel was changed from "Wind" to "Storm", thus calling it Storm Aquario instead of Wind Aquario.
- Hikaru's Infinity Wave was changed to Infinity Assault in the English dub.
- In the english dub of this episode, when Kenta was talking about Special Moves, he said "Shooting Starblast Attack". Normally in the dub when the attack name is mentioned, you only hear "Starblast Attack"
- Hikaru's surname "Hasama" can be translated as "Hazama" going by the kanji, which has gotten some fans confused, but the katakana proves it's spelt as Hasama.
