Synopsis (Anime Version)
The Beginning: Bandage Man
During the start of the anime, Bandage Man, is seen walking around the city, not just that but sleeping in unusual places like on top of a water tank. A little after that, he ran into a group of beyblade thugs called the Face Hunters who was bullying someone named Kenta. The five Face Hunters that were there had then challenged Bandage Man to a 5 VS 1 handicap match, which he easily beat them without even trying. Kenta was happy that someone was there to save the day, and even someone to look up to. Not long after that they both became good friends and went to the Bey Park together. During their first conversation alone at the park, Kenta asked Bandage Man where he lives. Bandage Man revealed to Kenta that he has been traveling around the country looking for someone challenging enough to battle him. And later on meets Ryuga and becomes his rival.One of the Face Hunters, Benkei, had proposed a challenge for Bandage Man, for him to meet them at a construction site. As soon as Bandage Man got there, one hundred face Hunter thugs were there waiting with their beyblades eager to battle Bandage Man. After one hundred beyblades were launched, Bandage Man remains calm and un-phased by this. Soon after Kenta appears, he notices that one of the beys scratched Bandage Man on the side of his head! He says to him that this isn't a beybattle, and that he should run. Still, Bandage Man isn't afraid; he reassures Kenta that everything will be fine. Bandage Man then decides to get serious and launches Storm Pegasus. Bandage Man unleashes some of the power from Storm Pegasus, knocking away the one hundred beyblades with ease; he even summons his beast Pegasus to finish the job knocking all those blades away. After Bandage Man beat the one hundred Face Hunters who challenged him, their leader, Kyoya challenged him to a battle.
Later that day, at the City Bowl, Bandage Man is seen beyblading against some kids, which he easily defeats their blades in a single swipe. All the kids there got so excited that a strong blader like Bandage Man had challenged them to a beyblade match. Then a girl named Madoka is seen watching from the background, who later accidentally spooked Bandage Man, took both of them to the B-Pit. A Beyblade shop in town (which is also her house) and decided to help them out.
Later that day, the Face Hunters took off with Kenta's Sagittario, telling Bandage Man that if he didn't come to the Metal Tower that something bad will happen to Kenta's bey. After Bandage Man arrived at the Metal Tower, he began his battle with Kyoya. After Bandage Man won the battle, Sagittario was given back to Kenta. Little did Bandage Man know...one of his enemies, Doji from the Dark Nebula Organization has returned and they want him dead. That day, Kenta wanted to prove to Bandage Man to be a worthy opponent in battle so Bandage Man wouldn't leave town to find other strong opponents. Bandage Man accepted Kenta's challenge, decided to beybattle him. Kenta proved to be a worthy opponent, but Bandage Man won the battle using his first finishing move, Shooting Star Attack (Pegasus Starblast Attack). Bandage Man explained to Kenta that he liked the city, so he wasn't going to leave.
After Doji gave Benkei the bey, 'Dark Bull', Benkei goes crazy. Later, Bandage Man sees an enraged Benkei and battles him and won. Not just that, but the next day, some guy named Tetsuya kidnapped Madoka, demanded a battle with him, which Bandage Man won of course.
A female blader named Hikaru shows up in Metal Bey City, and wanted to battle against Bandage Man. Well, it didn't turn out the way she wanted as Kenta battled her in Bandage Man's place since he got sick.
Dark Nebula continues to manipulate Kyoya into thinking that Bandage Man is the bad guy. While that is happening, Doji asks the main computer (Merci) to gather more data on Bandage Man. Merci lured Bandage Man into an outhouse, which then Merci tricks Bandage Man into thinking that he's on TV. After Merci gathered enough data on Bandage Man, he kicked him out then left. The whole time Bandage Man had no idea that it was a trap to gather data on him.
