Amaterios 7Meteor Xtreme (アマテリオス・セブンメテオ・エクストリーム, Amateriosu Sebun Meteo Ekusutorīmu), stylized as αmaterios 7Meteor Xtreme, is an Attack Type Beyblade released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System. It was released as a wbba. Store Exclusive Booster in Japan on November 25th, 2017 for 972円.
Energy Layer - Amaterios
Main article: Energy Layer - Amaterios
Takara Tomy's Amaterios is an Attack Type Energy Layer that features a face on the left side, meant to represent this Layer's namesake; the Shinto Goddess of the Sun Amaterasu, and an overall pentagonal or star shape. Such a shape creates five points of recoil which grants Amaterios high Burst and Knock-Out potential while the tall teeth are capable of withstanding the Layer's recoil. Furthermore, among the Single Layers, Amaterios has high weight which further bolsters Burst Resistance and Attack potential.
However, Amaterios lags behind Valkyrie and Xcalibur in Attack Combinations as the pentagonal shape means that each point of contact is at an obtuse angle which reduces recoil compared to the triangular Valkyrie or the sword point of Xcalibur. Furthermore, as a pre-Xcalibur Single Layer, Amaterios' teeth will wear down quickly with use, so if one prefers to use Amaterios, it is recommended to have multiple copies of this Layer and to be prepared to replace it.
Forge Disc - 7
Main article: Forge Disc - 7
7, like other odd numbered Core Discs, is an asymmetrical, elliptical disc that can facilitate a Disc Frame. 7 is designed similar to Gravity or Heavy, with seven designs jutting out that resemble the number "7". At first glance, the Disc looks unbalanced, but in reality, two of the sections on one side being halves makes it balanced. 7 is one of the heaviest Discs thus far, outclassed only by 10 and 0, and has a ideal weight distribution for Stamina Combinations. Its high Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) grants it not only the highest Stamina potential out of all other Core Discs, but its weight grants it high Attack and Defense potential without the severe Burst Risk of 8. With the use of Disc Frames, 7 can be used to great effect in any Combination.
Disc Frame - Meteor
Main article: Disc Frame - Meteor
Meteor is a pentagonal Frame with numerous protrusions to give it a rough perimeter. While too small to come into contact with the opponent's Layer, Meteor is one of the thickest and thus heaviest Disc Frames in the game, which grants high Attack potential when paired with Core Discs such as 7.
Performance Tip - Xtreme
Main article: Performance Tip - Xtreme
Xtreme features a flat rubber tip with a circular depression in the center, akin to Metal Fight Beyblade's Rubber Flat, that sits at the standard height. Embossed on the top is a stylized "X" for easy differentiation.
Due to the surface area to friction ratio, Xtreme will create a highly aggressive, and if launched with a Banking Shoot, somewhat easily controllable movement pattern. In terms of speed, Xtreme is faster than Accel, Zephyr and Assault but is as fast as or slower than Hold or a worn Variable. Xtreme's high speed allows for strong attacks and its high friction creates less chances of losing the Banking Pattern in battle making it one of the most common choices for Attack Combinations.
However, Xtreme has three major weaknesses. Firstly, the high friction of the rubber means that Xtreme has incredibly low Stamina, furthermore, the light weight of the Burst System compared to previous Systems means that there is less inertia, exacerbating the Stamina issue further. Secondly, the high friction also means that Xtreme resists changes to the Beyblade's spin from contact with the opponent, thus more force is transferred the teeth in Takara Tomy Layers or the slopes in Hasbro Layers, increasing the chances of Self-Bursts. Lastly, Xtreme will wear down with use, decreasing its aggression with little to no improvement to the tip's Stamina, meaning that multiple copies much be purchased in order to replace worn ones.
