They're both good kid anime in my opinion. Both Yugioh and Beyblade have good messages in them about team work and things. ^^

freakzilla freakzilla says...

Both Beyblade and Yu-Gi-Oh are anime meant for younger kids. These two are very similar in plot: in a tournament, mysterious items are being used to fight. Only a true master can bring out their max potential and keep winning.

sunshinyness sunshinyness says...

Both Yu-Gi-Oh and Beyblade contain strong themes of friendship and teamwork, and involve the need to collect items and engage in combat with peers.

Do you like anime in which characters battle each other by playing a game? Well then Yu-Gi-Oh and Beyblade are just the series for you. The characters take on their problems with a game of cards and spinning tops, respectively.

batman2004 batman2004 says...

If you liked Beyblade or Yu-gi-oh, you'd probably like the other, as both have a lot of battles, rivalry, and challenges. I really recommend one for the other, for that reason.

jurexplay jurexplay says...

Well, both series contain a story of friendship, loyalty and reaching the final gool after many hardships. Some may think that these anime are just kids shows aired in the moring on TV but they can make you addicted in no time. The stories are quite good and at some point of the show you wolud want to be one of the characters. That's the best proof that these series are fairly better than nowadays commercial sh*t.

ShinobiAlchemist ShinobiAlchemist says...

Though the main characters, Tyson and Yugi, are quite different, both are very competitive shows, and both have to do with summoning monsters.

thegreatmajeni thegreatmajeni says...

Both are made for more of a Younger audience, They both also battle with things, and may have many tournaments.

vernanonix vernanonix says...

Whether creatures are flying out of trading cards or battling tops, it doesn't matter. If you like big, powerful monsters and flashy effects along with them, either Beyblade or Yu-Gi-Oh will work for you.

Kari5 Kari5 says...

Both of these shows are big flashy shounen titles. If you like tons of episodes, tournaments, best friend speeches, and over-the-top children's card games with a supernatural twist, then these shows are for you.

Both Beyblade and Pokemon are kiddy anime that use playful fights in a tournament style. Both have a fun and very lighthearted story as well. Though Beyblade is more oriented towards boys and Pokemon doesn't have a distinct audience, the age group they are aimed at is without a doubt the same.

charliechan charliechan says...

Both invloe people teaming up with monsters to over come the problems that they face so that they are able to reach their goals.

crawller crawller says...

They are both about becoming the best, Tyson in beyblade will do almost anything to win and so does Ash from Pokemon.

It's all about training and becoming the best of the best.

Madgirllolly Madgirllolly says...

They both have the same "win all the battles and become the champion!" thing but with other stories too, theirs the baddies and lots of new people to meet!

Radaghast Radaghast says...

Replace a gyroscope with a pokeball, keep the setting, the theme and the mood of huge competitiions, and you will get Pokemon instead of Beyblade. Even the problems the heroes face are somehow similar, you just believe in your monster and encourage it instead of betting on your spinning tool.

Apparently, different characters lead to different situations and the plot unfolds in another direction, but basically if you want more of Beyblade-ish adventures and if you finished watching this series, as well as G and V, switch to Pokemon.

Kari5 Kari5 says...

These are similar in the way people compete against each other, most often in tournaments, to become a champion. And of course, since they're directed at a younger audience, the main characters learn many life lessons about life, trust, courage, and friendship.

Samujake Samujake says...

Beyblade and Pokemon have fairly similar storylines and if you like one of these, you're most likely going to like the other.

How is this not simple to see! in both of these the Masters have there best friend/toy which they use in friendly battles and competitions. but then.. they soon discover there is an inner secret to there "toys" they are actually.. gant beasts awaiting to be released to fight the other evil beasts in the evil people's toys! if you liked Bakugan Battle Brawlers, im sure youll love beyblade!

LovelyWickedDescet LovelyWickedDescet says...

Friendly battles and compitions but both parties soon discover an inner secret to there game. Soon they have to go up against evil orginizations that wish to take over the world. Battle old friends and new rivals along the way, while trying not to fight each other, to stop the villians and save there game, pals and the world in one.

KiraRin KiraRin says...

Two shows that were seriously overhauled for the western audience and will appeal massively to younger viewers, Beyblade and Bakugan feature young kids thoroughly engrossed in proxy battles. Nothing serious, they are rather light hearted. Fans of one will love the other!

zelos zelos says...

The structure is the same, an amazing boy that could do all he want, he is a bit stupid, idealistic. The weapon for save them are toys. The main character has the definitely weapon, the best toy. They seems to be cool, the other characters has only one use shout at the main character for win then they had a battle where they suffer a lot. I think is the same with other name and other characters

This tow are basically alike except the part where in Yu-Gi-Oh they have cards and in Bayblade they have weird machines or something like that, but I would really recomend you on watching Yu-Gi-Oh or Bayblade.

ShinobiAlchemist ShinobiAlchemist says...

Both Tyson(from Beyblade) and Jaden(from Yu-Gi-Oh! GX) are both energetic people looking for the next guy to face in there battles. Also both these anime are about "Dueling."

Yu-Gi-Oh!

Yu-Gi-Oh!

Yugi Mutou was a boy who was constantly bullied – until one day he managed to put together an ancient and mysterious puzzle that no one has been able to solve for two hundred years. Now, whenever Yugi's friends are threatened, a strange transformation occurs, and Yugi seems to become an entirely different person. This transformed Yugi is a master of games, and uses these spontaneously-invented games to trap and to punish the bad guys. At the end of each game, his opponent appears to suffer a painful death; but it is soon revealed that this was all in their minds – or was it?

The series are similar in that through a game the world is being threatened and to save the world the hero must keep winning at the game. Both series are competitive and the some of the characters are even similar. If you liked one you'll enjoy the other.

Madgirllolly Madgirllolly says...

Both Beyblade and Yu-Gi-Oh are about winning matches and becoming the greatest, travelling around and having lots of crazy adventures!
